A raft of downloadable content options are coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us just in time for this year's E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo {June 10-13)! The third DLC character (Scorpion) - and two collections of alternate skins - will officially become available to the masses starting June 11!

The Injustice Facebook featured seven costumes in seven days as hype for the Blackest Night & Red Son 2 3-character costume packs! More info follows.

Comic book references dominate the E3 wave of DLC; Containment Suit Doomsday leading the charge in a free Compatability Pack update [full story]! The now classic costume comes right out of the villains' earliest appearances as a grunting monster whose rampage would culminate in the 1992 Death of Superman event.

DLC Season Pass holders can already download Mortal Kombat guest character Scorpion -- the third addition to the playable roster. He too received a comic book connection, visually reinvented for Injustice by DC Comics Publisher and New 52 lead designer: Jim Lee!

All fans will have to pay the $2.99 (240 MS Points) price tag to get their hands on Blackest Night and Red Son skins for six of the existing character sets. [Examine full size images by clicking the thumbnail gallery below.]

Like the pre-order Black Lantern Batman bonus [full story]; these new Black Lantern Corps skins technically introduce new characters to the Injustice roster!

As detailed in a Mortal Kombat Online feature; the Black Lantern Superman owes his origins to some of DC Comics' biggest milestones, with origins dating back to the original comics of the Golden Age! Black Lantern Flash borrows his design from the resurrected visage of an arch-nemesis: Eobard Thawne - The Reverse Flash! The "Black Flash" played off a tradition of death-bringing speedsters and gave Barry Allen some troubles during the three-part Blackest Night: Flash mini-series! Doomsday rounds out the set with a dark look inspired by the style of the 2009 best selling event.

Batman & Green Lantern round out the Soviet inspired designs of 2003 Eisner Award winning story: Superman: Red Son. This is the second skin pack inspired by the story, which tells of a world where Superman landed as a baby in 1950s Soviet Russia -- dramatically altering human history in the process! A Red Son design for Deathstroke is also included.

Injustice Creative Director Ed Boon showed signs of interest in the Red Son universe as far back as 2008! During promotion for Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe, he told Mortal Kombat Online about the difficulties associated with bringing these concepts to the fighting game arena [archive], "I guess what you need to keep in mind is that every version of the characters that we show, we need approval for them. And so it's pretty time consuming. So the process of kind of doubling that up by saying "Okay, let's do alternate Superman. Let's do that Russian one... that's quite a bit of turnaround time."

Red Son is the creation of writer and Superman super-fan Mark Millar and artist Dave Johnson. The concept has continued to be a landmark reference, utilized by DC Comics as part of their multiverse of parallel Elseworlds. The Red Son Superman has featured in comic events like Infinite Crisis and Final Crisis and shares ties to the Golden Age version [read more].

Mortal Kombat Online will be following developments from the show, including expected updates about future character additions to the DLC scheme!
