Injustice: Gods Among Us will also have Black Adam as a playable character. The game developers have been slowly but surely releasing the names of the characters that will be appearing in the game. Among the characters that have already been announced have been some of the usual go-tos and some names that might not have been expected.
Superman and Batman have already been verified as two of the heroes that will make an appearance. Flash will be there too. As far as the villains, Solomon Grundy, Doomsday, Harley Quinn and Deathstroke were previously reported on.
There are also going to be some twists and turns in the game play as a DLC that will bring the story line of “Darkest Night” to the game. Shazam is another of the characters that will make an appearance in the game and that means that his mortal enemy simply has to be as well.
Injustice: Gods Among Us announced on their official Twitter page that Black Adam was going to be a part of the game. Black Adam is an Egyptian character who shares the lightning bolt powers of Shazam to the degree that, like Shazam he must actually say Shazam in order to activate his powers.
While this character may not be one of the most well known in the game series, he’s been around for quite a while. Black Adam made his first appearance way back in 1945 and became a sort of regular super villain in the 1970’s.
The total number of characters that have been confirmed for this game is now totaling 22 with the recent confirmation that Raven will be included as well.
