That's rational.

7 characters out of 24-26, +5-8 DLC characters...

Yep...there goes all hope...

God forbid someone like Poison Ivy, Killer Croc, Clayface, or R'as takes the place of Copperhead, Cheetah, Bizarro, Professor Zoom, Captain Cold, Black Manta, Ares, or Mirror Master.

Yes, yes...I know. Martian Manhunter, Captain Marvel, Black Adam, Huntress, Black Canary, Zatanna, Sinestro...all of which are going to be locks for DLC if they didn't feel they were fitting to the story or main roster.

Just because there happens to be more characters related to Batman(even though almost all of them have their own comic series and aren't just "Batman characters" anymore), than any of the other respective franchises individually, doesn't mean the roster is ruined. It means the roster has recognizable faces, with characters that they required to fit a certain role in the story. Nobody is just thrown in to be thrown in. Not one "Batman character" will be in the game just because they like Batman, they are in to serve a specific purpose in the story, and because people will actually want to use them.

So don't be so hastey to throw all hope away because one franchise is more represented than another. That particular franchise just has more to pick from than others. X-men usually has quite a dominant presence in Marvel games, that's just how it is when you have so many recognizable popular characters. If all franchises were relegated to the same amount of people in the game, this game would have one crappy roster.

Lastly, i'll end with this:

http://youtu.be/PvOe0PUJkbo?t=5m38s

It's right at the part where they ask Ed, why/how they go about choosing who they include in the game. His answers: 1. Recognizability 2. Fitting the story(have relations to the other characters and can play off them in story, if they have no relation to any of the characters then they omit them) 3. Obscure (unexpected, won't see coming). Reason why they wouldn't choose someone, because there's already someone that fills that role or plays the same. So no Professor Zoom because there's already Flash etc.



I understand man just you know I'd love to see some other characters thrown in there martian manhunter, captain cold, ares, doomsday, sinestro, captain marvel just to mix things up. Don't get me wrong I think all batman characters are probably the most well known in the DC universe and seeing them in this game would be great but also I'd hate to know if a character didn't make this game and left out, but I have high hopes no matter what characters or what I'm sure the game and all the hard work will pay off when April comes and it's time to get it. Plus I'm sure the DLC will be good so I have hope for thatwink

I predict that MM will be revealed in time to coincide with his feature debut in the new Justice League of America book that releases on February 20th.

Same way they revealed Green Arrow around the time that CW's "Arrow" show premiered.

Somehow I can imagine Martian Manhunter as Mk's Chameleon.
Kind of like 'borrow' moves from other charcaters if you were to use his shape shift ability. I can kind of see that glasses

I'm still hoping for some of these..

Darkseid
Black Manta
MM
Mongul
Atrocitus
Robin
Captain Cold
Beast Boy
Red Hood
The Talon

But other than that I really like the roster.

Knowing the Lobo and BB are pretty good lock ins for dlc is pretty sweet too.

I've already considered MM to be DLC. I knew it was Inevitable. The only reason I've scratched and clawed through this entire thing, Is even if it's not MK. Shang Tsung is a very fun character to use in those games. I just think for diversity MM would of been a great choice off the bat. So he's not going to be on the Initial roster. I know that, no point in denying.

However, I still have my reasons for why he should of... But I'll disregard those opinions and keep it to myself. I'm sure most of the community is growing tired of my ranting. But hey, Ed did say if we keep getting a characters name brought up that he/she would be considered at a much higher rate then others. Just doing my part as a fan, and don't regret the hype I put into this character. I'd do it all over again. But I won't. I'll wait and see if by DLC what I did was enough, along with the rest of the community's fans.

And to BC. It's not an Obsession. I don't clarify my ranting as Obsession. If anything it's Passion. Passion is what keeps the dream alive.

The same kind of Passion Cos Players bring into spending a gazillion dollars on outfits of many characters every year.

The same kind of Passions Comic Book Nerds like me who pour money into comic related items, figures, comic books, posters type of passion.

The feeling of supporting that character by going out and purchasing anything related to show your support.

Maybe I'm wrong. But can't sales alone justify whether something that does good or bad will succumb to being either popular enough to sell more or, just taken off the market completely due to lack of sales.

Every member on this forum has something for this game they want in it, if not already in. People like Nick who I talk to on FB a lot about Grodd and Manhunter. We've had many discussions on these characters.

Temp is another great user who I hope get's his BB. Everyone deserves a chance.

So in response to the whole "Obsession" thing. It's not an Obsession I do have a life outside comics and gaming. But being a comic nerd is also a keen interest of mine that I take seriously.

MM being the first character who took my interest as a kid, being that he wasn't Human or an Entity. But a Outcast from another planet, accepted into Earth as a civilian hero was always something that Interest me.

At the time of comics. Alien Superheros wasn't really a big thing. But he enforced that state of mind and left an impact on me as a fan.

I don't run around my house dressed in green paint with glowing red eyes.

But I do have the passion for the character like those who were on Stan Lee's: Who Wants to Be a Superhero? show. Those type of people who were on there were Inspired by comic characters to come up with and portray their "own" Influenced super hero identity.

So again, and for the last time. I'm not Obsessed. Just very much passionate of Manhunters success in the comic world. Even If I'm not entirely responsible for what happens. I will still support to no end.

Period.

In other news If I had to say I was excited for any other characters in this game, It would be Lex Luthor. Love, love, love this character. Brilliant Mastermind.

Don't worry about Manhunter, he'll be in the game and if he's DLC then NRS will be getting my money.

I've also come to terms with that fact that Grodd won't be in the game and won't be DLC but I'm okay with that because there is always an open spot for Gorilla Grodd in Injustice 2 lol fingers crossed grin

Also Thanks BlackCyborg for calling me a saint earlier, that's the first time anyone has ever called me that before lol smile

P.S.

Also MINION, my house finally got the power back after the snow storm hit so we can talk on Skype once I get back over there probably on Monday.

I know bro. I'm pretty confident in his DLC chances. Since he most likely will be. I hope for at least a top 3 spot of released characters.

And sounds good.

I believe Martian Manhunter will be in the initial release.If not playable he will most likely be in the story.Even if he was trolling, i think the pic that showed files of penquin(not really wanting him playable,just my opinion) And MMH(kinda want to see how he'd be handled).I kinda want to see Beast boy in the game,even if it's just to add a potential comic relief character,not to mention his abilities....I want to at least see maybe a conecpt of Red Hood,and damian wayne's robin with the injustice look.But that's alright,i guess.I'm waiting for the eventual Complete Edition.

I'm guessing a full on Raven reveal with gameplay, to coincide with the Ravens being in the Super Bowl.

Not to burst anyone's bubble or anything, but don't be surprised if they just show us gameplay for someone who we already know is in the game but have only seen pictures as of yet. As we all know, Boon and company take pleasure in getting fans hopes up for a "huge" reveal and then letting us down.

I'm assuming if this is the case it's going to be Bane since we've only seen a picture and a render up to this point.

Hoping for a new character, but I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

We should be getting it in the coming hours. Green Lantern gameplay or Bane gameplay would be cool. Even better, Raven gameplay, oh yeah.

I'm putting my money on Green Lantern or Joker, seeing as they have been announced for quite a while, but haven't had their gameplay showcased.

Wait, so there's like 800 people that won't shut up about what character(s) "need" to be in the game, and Minion's the only one that gets called out on his preference on one character?

What's up with that?

I think this'll be the start of that ad campaign that Hec mentioned where they show high level gameplay from two different characters and people vote on who the winner would be if they fought.

Maybe one of the character gameplays shown is Bane or something.

Might not be getting anything today. On the Facebook page they said that they are "fine tuning" for the announcement and posted a Bane concept art instead.
