Injustice: Gods Among Us just landed a trailer for a new DLC character. Say hello to Lobo.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is the critically acclaimed DC Comics fighting game from NeatherRealm, the people who gave us Mortal Kombat and then reinvented it. The story involves Superman being tricked by the Joker into nuking Metropolis, therefore sending the man of steel into a mental breakdown, taking the rest of the Justice League with him. The Justice League from another universe intervenes, and so the brawl begins.
At the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, NeatherRealm showed off Injustice: Gods Among Us and a trailer for a new DLC character, Lobo. The new character seems to be based on the version of Lobo that existed before Rob Liefeld rebooted the franchise (a move which angered many a fan).
Lobo is an alien bounty hunter, rarely used, but known to be a hardboiled villain. He was the DC Comics equivalent of a combination of Marvel’s Wolverine and Punisher, a biker with regenerative healing powers and heightened senses. A more serious version of Deadpool, in other words.
The Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC trailer begins with Lobo riding in on a floating bike and dismounting. He has a chain wrapped around his forearm and a gun strapped to his back. He puts a cigar up to his mouth and says, “Time to liven up the joint.” He lights the cigar with a flamethrower.
Batman enters in a cloud of bats, poses for battle, and the fight begins.
Lobo shoots the ground, sending Batman off his feet for a second, and follows up with a dive attack. Then he readies his gun as Batman starts knocking him about. Batman approaches the fallen Lobo as the villain gets up and throws him with a spinning move.
Lobo resumes attacking with his guns and various throws, one of which uses his chain. Then he throws Batman into a teleporter of some kind, at which point Darkseid gets off his chair, throws and blasts Batman back out of the room through the device. The rest of the trailer is above.
