Ed Boon, the man himself, has taken to Twitter to poll fans of Injustice: Gods Among Us about prospective DLC characters they'd like to see in the future. However, he may have said more than he initially intended -- so to speak. Coincidentally missing from the poll was fan-favorite Martian Manhunter. When asked about J'onn's absence, Boon replied, "Yes, I understand he would be #1." Will Martian Manhunter and the winner of this informal poll be upcoming DLC?
Here's NetherRealm Creative Director Ed Boon's initial tweet polling fans:
Who would U most want to see as a DLC character in INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us? Click here to (unofficially) vote: surveymonkey.com/s/BZCM3BS— Ed Boon (@noobde) May 10, 2013
Considering the first "Season" of four DLC characters is half complete, with the remaining two characters strongly rumored to be Zod (that Man of Steel movie tie-in money) and Mortal Kombat's Scorpion, could this be confirmation of a second season of four DLC characters? Clearly Ed Boon recognizes the want of Martian Manhunter by the community, but would the next characters be pulled from the poll list?
Oh, the list. Here are the seven character Ed Boon is asking fans to choose from:
- Blue Beetle
- Doctor Fate
- Red Hood (Robin)
- Static Shock
- Swamp Thing
Despite the seeming controversy over "too many Batman characters" I can't see Red Hood not being near the top. Powergirl likely to be huge too. I'd love to see Swamp Thing or Doctor Fate personally, but I'm just happy to see characters that aren't advertisements getting noticed.
We could also be passing over one simple truth behind this poll, which is it's less about which character wins so much as how many people participate. This poll could be measuring interest in more DLC characters in general. If you want more Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC characters, it doesn't matter who you vote for... just go vote! Show Ed Boon he should add all of these heroes to the roster.
