Injustice 2NetherRealm Studios has announced two new characters for Injustice 2 at San Diego Comic-Con. Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle will join the fighting game’s roster in 2017.

We actually expected an Injustice 2 reveal during EVO 2016. Unfortunately NetherRealm Studios didn’t announce any news regarding Injustice or Mortal Kombat during the biggest fighting game tournament of the year. Players were a bit disappointed. However, Creative Director Ed Boon promised a new reveal to happen during SDCC. They came trough. Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle will join the Injustice 2 roster and the studio has released a brand new trailer showcasing their power, moves, and armor abilities. Check out the trailer below.

Wonder Woman:

Just in time for her 75th anniversary, Wonder Woman makes her return to the Injustice franchise. In the first Injustice game, Wonder Woman’s character power gave her the ability to switch between her Sword & Shield attacks and her Lasso of Truth. In Injustice 2, she is no longer limited to when she can use her Amazonian weaponry. She also has gotten a new look, one that resembles her new cinematic universe look.

Now, Wonder Woman brings her whole arsenal. Combining her long range Lasso attacks with quick hitting sword combos makes her an even more powerful brawler than before. And while she is at her best dealing damage up close, her Shield Toss and the ability to reflect fireballs with her Bracelets of Submission means she can stand her ground against projectile characters..

Her new character power has her gain blessings from the Greek Gods which enhance her combat capabilities in a variety of ways. For example, Hermes can enhance her mobility and give her the ability to air dash.

Blue Beetle:

The other new character the studio has announced is a character fans have been asking for since the first Injustice. Blue Beetle makes his debut in Injustice 2. His alien technology allows him to form various gadgets and weapons for his power suit that make him a well-rounded, Jack of All Trades type character that can be effective up close and from afar.

Blue Beetle’s hands can turn into shields, blades, and clubs for punishing close range combos, and he can attack from a distance by turning his hand into an energy cannon that fires quick blasts from the ground or air. He can also use the wings on his back for air mobility, both to advance or escape from the opponent.

His unique character power allows him to transform his arms into long razor sharp blades that enhance his range and effectiveness up close but at a price: while his blades are active he can no longer use his fireballs. And his supermove is incredible. Blue Beetle cycles through many different weapons before finishing off his opponents with a powerful series of energy blasts.

Injustice 2 is coming in 2017. Check back regularly for more information and updates on the game and more. What do you think of these 2 new combatants? Which characters should join the game’s roster next?
