Comic books are an inherently graphic medium, so it's probably to be expected that we get a few pictures on the way to the April release of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Those handsome devils at NetherRealm Studios have recently delivered promotional images via Facebook and Twitter accounts. They showcase just a few of the confirmed playable heroes and villains from the DC Comics fighter!

In an interview with Giant Bomb; Hector Sanchez discussed an upcoming promotional campaign built around the dream match-ups the game will deliver. You can splash a little bit of that philosophy on your desktop with the Green Lantern v Deathstroke wallpaper currently showcased on Twitter [click thumbnail to enlarge]. Nightwing and Wonder Woman can be seen facing off in the top right.

The latest in a series of Facebook character banners is the catalyst for carnage and all around Clown Prince of Crime: Joker! He follows last month's Superman.

Injustice: Gods Among Us hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & Nintendo WiiU in April (16th US, 17th AU, 19th EU). Find and discuss all the relevant info on the DC Universe Injustice forum.
