Well, who needs official emails and press releases when you've got Twitter? The Injustice: Gods Among Us account has revealed yet another character for the upcoming DC universe fighter, and this time, it's another villain. Well, villain in DC comics, but we already know alliances are blurred in Injustice. Anyway, meet Black Adam, nemesis to
Captain Marvel Shazam.
The tweet popped up earlier today, along with a single screenshot of Black Adam:
So it's kind of like a teaser, except we already know exactly what's being teased.
For those unaware, Black Adam is a supervillain to the "Marvel Family," and predecessor to Shazam. The guy was a corrupted fellow from ancient Egypt who fought his way to the future and challenged the Marvels. Over the years, he was rewritten as an antihero of sorts, trying to clear his name. No idea what happened to him post New 52, though.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will be out for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U on April 16.
