Despite the Martian Manhunter's appearance at the end of Injustice: Gods Among Us' Scorpion DLC trailer, General Zod will in fact be the next official character release. Starting July 2, which is a bit late considering the tie in with the Man of Steel Movie, General Zod will be available for download. Also available will be a special Man of Steel Superman skin which will cost $.99. Not sure if watching trailer below is spoilers.
It's going to be very interesting in as the fighting game tournament season picks up speed over the next few months to see how Injustice's DLC characters fare. Unless they're just straight up banned, which could very well be the case. If not, will General Zod players have an advantage, or maybe Scorpions? With E3 I've really fallen behind in my Injustice meta knowledge.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is currently available on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Make sure to pick up the General Zod DLC starting July 2, or any of the other three DLC characters (Lobo, Batgirl, Scorpion) currently available. Is Martian Manhunter next?
Note: Zod's release is sourced from the UK version of the trailer, because the North American version is not yet available. Thus, the release date may be inaccurate for all territories.
