We all have bias, opinions, preferences, expectations, etc. I am not a MK fan, and won't be buying Scorpion. I also have no problem with NRS offering him as an option. He's not for me, but I don't need every item on the menu to appeal to me in order to enjoy my meal. NRS wants to appeal to a wide variety of folks. While the game is first and foremost a DC fighting game, they also hope to bring in fans from other fighting games, MK in particular. Scorpion is meant for some of those folks in much the same way that Diet Coke on the menu is not meant for me as I don't like it. In the long term, good dlc sales for a broader fanbase of DC fans and MK fans makes the series more financially successful.

That's cool, I'm actually of the same mind!
Just out of curiousity, are there any characters you would like as dlc?
But, even if she doesn't make it, I can't really complain. I think the roster is solid, and the gameplay is good fun. It's a good showing for DC, imo

Has Zod been officially announced?
***EDIT*** Okay, Zod looks amazing. Too bad he comes out in July.

"Bruce, you have the creepiest smile!"
Refrain from using words such as bias until you know who you're talking to. My statement clearly isn't such, you are misinterpreting it on purpose if that's what you think, IMO.(like when I do it?no?)I guess what I'm noticing is a bias. You guys like MK, have played it before, so this for you is a perk and will defend it to death. I'm a comic book reader, not a gamer, so the only fighters I've ever bought are the Marvel vs. Capcom series, and now, Injustice. Sue me for only being excited for DCU characters in a DCU game. Again, I will use Scorpion, I've nothing against the character. But he should not have been placed ahead of other characters. Point or complaint, it's still my opinion. I respect yours, I just disagree with it.
Might be a perk, but my post was merely an explanation. Yes I'm a gamer, but if I wasn't a comic book reader foremost I would never have looked at this or MK vs DC which I've mentioned being my main reasoning for the character in the game, for the of-teenth time I might add. You don't even know me though, so don't assume anything, for one I don't play Marvel vs Capcom, I don't like Capcom and the controls are too button mashy for my taste.
I admittedly don't post on these forums a lot, but I stick to trades and don't keep up as much.
Not mad, just an explanation that you obviously missed the beat on. I could care less who plays with the character, understand why hes a part of the game. I don't want the whole bat family in the game. That is also unnecessary.Sorry, but why are the Scorpion fanboys so butthurt that people are not happy about Scorpion? I understand you being excited to play as Scorpion, but why are you getting so mad about this discussion?
Power Girl, Super Girl, Darkseid, Gorilla Grodd, Killer Croc, Zatanna....Honestly I don't mind the villains side, because I feel the like games villains are for teh most part balanced even though we coulda left Harley out(love her, didn't need her)Just out of curiousity, are there any characters you would like as dlc?
Well, while I would play as Scorpion, this is for most part, exactly my point. I really couldn't care less if he was in the game or not, but I honestly see it as trying to reach to another audience and the same time a reminder that there is a minor link. And I don't mind that, would I buy him? Yes. Do have you to as well, imo? No, and I don't expect them to. I just expect common sense. The characters have met and the companys are related, and yet people are finding ridiculous arguments as to why he shouldn't be here at all. It's reasonable to see both sides.Way to misread the situation. I don't think he's particularly excited to play as Scorpion, and neither am I. We just understand WHY NetherRealm wanted to include the character and accept it. You think there aren't a ton more DC characters I'd rather have in the game than Scorpion? The thing is, there are also a ton more DC characters I'd rather have in the game than Lobo. Or Batgirl. Or Joker. Or Doomsday. Or Martian Manhunter if it happens. So whatever.

On tonight's episode of CONAN they had one of his "Clueless Gamer" segments and they actually played Injustice! They also revealed General Zod.
Here's some other footage of Zod's super move.
I like your list of wanted characters. I am really surprised Darkseid didn't make the cut, and Gorilla Grodd could have been a really fun character to play with. Powergirl would have been another fun character, especially odd considering that seems like a character design NetherRealm would have liked to have worked with.
a FLAMING C skin for Superman! That was so freaking awesome! I hope it's a real dlc and not just a stunt for the segment.

I hope we get flaming C and zod was ok
All I mean't was things are getting tossed around that shouldn't be and I think certain aspects should be acknowledged. The game is clearly intended for comics fans, I am foremost, and I as well think the dlc sucks to some degree, not that I won't buy. I think you missed the point because I'm not mad at anything, I don't care at all about Scorpion either way in this game.Refrain from using words such as "obviously missed the beat on" until you know who you're talking to. My statement clearly isn't such, you are misinterpreting it on purpose if that's what you think, IMO. I have clearly stated that I understand why he's in the game, I just think it's a huge waste. The DLC as a whole is absolutely terrible in character choice.
On the DC Facebook page they said The Flaming C will not be available for download. What a rip! I would much rather have the Flaming C skin over the other dlc characters!
I don't think we'll come to a full agreement - we all believe differently on the matter. That might be a good final agreement for the Great Scorpion Debate. ;)
