Injustice: Gods Among Us hits shelves April 2013, but fans pre-ordering the DC Comics fighter may want to keep their eyes peeled for the coming Collectors Edition!

Announced today in a press release from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, the Collector's Edition packs a powerful punch with a plethora of padded extras provided for a recommended retail price of $99.99! Of particular note, a collectible figurine that pits Wonder Woman and Batman against each other in inverted positions of power, depending on your geographic location.

The press release reveals no impression of a Collector's Edition for the Nintendo Wii U, but does include "two issues of a brand new DC Comics series," represented in image [below] by a featureless cover marked in several character logos. Among the symbols, emblems associated with Green Lantern, Robin and Martian Manhunter -- three popular characters many hope to see in the Injustice line-up.

European versions of the Collector's Editions lack the animated Justice League: Doom movie download, and [pictured above] feature a different collectible figurine.

Not incidentally, Justice League: Doom features a story based on the now classic Mark Waid JLA thriller, Tower of Babel. Like the comic, Doom tells a story of internal conflict as Batman's contingency plans for a rogue League are put to the test by the villains who obtain them. Fans have already looked to the story for clues that may resonate with the Injustice plot, where Batman and Superman will be at odds with the heroes becoming "our greatest threat."

Injustice: Gods Among Us is the latest title from the makers of Mortal Kombat, reuniting the team with the DC heroes who last featured in Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe.
