Injustice: Ed Boon Teases Martian Manhunter & Penguin

As a general rule of thumb, we like to steer clear of incidental, unsubstantiated rumors and reference. That said -- if there's anything incidental about this latest Injustice photo posted by Ed Boon (@noobde), we'll eat our collective hats.


Joker might pull focus from Boon's dinner-panged clock watching, but look a little closer, and I'm sure you'll find teasing references to Martian Manhunter and The Penguin!

With a shortcut labeled Cinema Renders, you might want to keep in mind this doesn't necessarily mean both characters are playable in the main roster. There's also a pretty clearly marked DLC folder there, too. This is, however, some of the least subtle food for thought we've had, circa dinner time.

Bane and Lex Luthor recently joined the confirmed list thanks to a leaked article from @Gamer Magazine [full story]. The cover story feature also spotlights early stages of the much touted story mode -- revealing some involvement for Aquaman, Captain Marvel, Doomsday and Sinestro, who appear in story flashback.

The January/February issue of @Gamer Magazine is now on sale at Best Buy. Find a preview of the feature at AtGamerMagazine.com. Injustice: Gods Among Us hits home consoles in April.

Martian Manhunter was all I needed! I'm now satisfied. Now for his official unveiling. Thanks Ed, and NRS! This was all I wanted.

There's no way Penguin is playable. I wouldn't be terribly upset if he was, but I just can't see that guy translating into the a fighting game. Joker at least has Gadgets. How much mileage can Penguin really get out of that Umbrella gun.

Again, it would be interesting, but I don't see it happening. Not to mention, I'd hate to see him take the place of, say, the Blue motherfucking Beetle.

New sig on the way

He could use his umbrella as a gun, knife, shield. There's actually a lot of potential for Penguin.

He also has that Gas that knocks unconscious. Would be interesting to see his umbrella used as a deflector for projectiles.

I doubt Penguin is playable, either it's just a tease, or he is gonna be a background character in story etc.

Manhunter will most likely make it, or maybe the "DLC" is there to signify that they could be DLC? Who knows.

RE: Injustice: Ed Boon Teases Martian Manhunter & Penguin

One thing I'd like to point out. The Martian Manhunter and Aias / Cinema Renders are labeled as "Shortcut" Thumbs as opposed to the Cold45, Penguin, and DLC folder which are non-shortcut thumbs. Maybe this means the cinema renders are the actual in game models and they were pulled from the original folder? Or maybe just made to be a shortcut to point out what's coming first and later. Not sure, purely speculation at this point.

I believe so. It makes sense since he was one of the most well known flash villains next to reverse flash / professor zoom.

I'm not so sure it's character related. I think it more so hints at this.
AIAS

My guess, it's boons way of saying this game will win an award, or be a GoTY contender.

They could be choosing characters to fit the story, not just who's best for a fighting game.

The Penguin isn't THAT bad. Not sure if you read the comics, but he's got a good story, and you could see some potential to his moveset with the different umbrellas.

Regardless, i'm sure it's just a tease and he won't be in the game as a playable character at least. Maybe NPC, but i'd doubt it.

Maybe the fact the joker is on the other screen is that he is "joking" about these characters being in

Well don't you think that Gorilla Grodd would be pretty high on that list of "Most Well Known Flash Villains", I mean he has to be number three behide Professor Zoom and Captain Cold

I was sadly thinking the same thing as you because we all know that Ed Boon is the king of trolling but I do believe that Martian Manhunter is gonna be in this game but I don't think nor believe that The Penguin is going to be in this game, I mean there are a much better characters that should be playable before Mr. Cobblepot lol you know like Killer Croc, Gorilla Grodd, Lobo, Black Manta, Sinestro and Black Adam.

Regarding The Penguin, here's what I said about him in this older DC thread:

Nephrite:
I actually think Penguin could be a great keep-away character. He could use his umbrella for most of his physical attacks that don't do much damage but are well ranged. He could also use it as a shield and to fly across the arena, as well as to fire bullets from it. His super could be an army of explosive penguins or something.



Damn, now I'd really like to see Penguin.


I still stand by that. I'd take him as a playable character over The Joker. Yes, that's right.

Looking at the MMHunter and DLC folders they have more folders inside them (I think thats what the icon means.)

But Penguin is just a folder. Might be a hint for Iceberg Lounge arena.

The Arrow icons on the folders stand for "Shorcuts" Windows 7 has that exact setup.

Screw Penguin. I got my Bane, that's enough of Batman characters, seriously.

Give us Martian Manhunter! This is Boon being anxious to release teasers to us fans, using the "my dinner is late" as an excuse lol. I swear it's like this game is getting less press releases than MK9.
