Injustice: Scorpion Highest Selling DLC According to Director

He landed in download channels to a chorus of mixed reaction, but it seems no amount of ire could stop Scorpion becoming the highest selling DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us!

The accolade was revealed by Injustice Creative Director Ed Boon, who invited Twitter followers to guess who took the top spot as "highest selling" content [see; Reply].

Gaming comics fans were among the most incensed by the inclusion, with Comic Book Resources calling the choice an "Injustice". The nature of guest characters remains ever controversial. CBR note the common complaint: "... when DC has a library of over 2000 unique characters for NetherRealm to pull from, with a myriad of designs and personalities, why would any developer draw from another source?"

The Mortal Kombat guest fighter edges out popularly requested downloadable DC Universe heavyweights: Martian Manhunter & Zatanna! The mascot ninja preceded the pair in the post-release cycle.

DLC Season Passes controversially included Scorpion as one of four unannounced characters in a drip release package deal. Exactly how sales data breaks down remains unknown, with sources telling us Warner Brothers regards such information as highly confidential. At the time of writing we were unable to obtain any additional sales information.

What is clear is that Scorpion was received well enough by gamers to register note. The mascot ninja has always shown strong crossover appeal and was given a faithful treatment beneath the Jim Lee designed hood [full story] -- sure to appeal to Mortal Kombat converts!

I'm quite surprised Scorpion sold better than Martian Manhunter. Scorpion was met with mixed reviews and Martian Manhunter was the most requested.

I still think he was better off not in Injustice.

You kind of wonder how much of that is because Mortal Kombat fansites are covering and promoting Injustice... ;)

MM was the best investment imho. He was and finally is in an actual fighting game. That to me was the best part of the whole game, his inclusion.

May also have something to do with Scropion being automatically included in the Season Pass. A lot of people who wouldnt normally have taken him would have donwloaded him just because they paid for the pass. By the time MMH and Zee came along a lot of people had lost interest in the game and DLC anyway.

Yeah, like what else is new? I would like to address that Scorpion's inclusion in Injustice made it yet another game taking place or otherwise connecting to MKII. Notice how in Scorpion's revelation trailer Batman practically downloads him in for help, as much as we did. Though I didn't.

Because we're tired of guest characters in the MK games. Pretty straightforward.

Only happened once. Unless you count Injustice but that's not an MK game. And I really don't see why people hate guest characters so much. They aren't hurting MK at all, only helping by fetching additional sales from people outside of MK 's fanbase.
