Scorpion is the next Injustice character? C’MERE!

2 min read


If there’s one thing that Injustice: Gods Among Us is not, it’s a Mortal Kombat game. Geoff highlighted that difference in his review of the superb fighter, as it starred kitizens of the DK Universe going head to head with one another in classic one on one kombat. And now, that game is going to get a taste of some real Mortal Kombat action.

Is it illogical, stupid and befuddling as Geoff says? I honestly don’t kare, because Scorpion looks pretty awesome in this video. Minus the part where his entire wardrobe was designed by Jim Lee, which gives the infamous ninja about as much subtlety as Ron Jeremy in hot pants.

Still, I’m kurious to see how Scorpion transitions to the faster pace of gameplay in Injustice. I’ve been playing the game a heck of a lot recently, and it’s without a doubt one of the best genre games on the market today.

Seriously, this design is f$%#ing stupid

The Scorpion DLK will cost 400 MSP, or $4.99 when he’s eventually out. And is that Martian Manhunter I see getting ready to actually do something at the end of the video? I’m calling it now that he’ll be the next DLK character.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Hahaha. Very kool!

    • Trevor Davies

      Don’t enkourage him, he got “klassic”, “kharacter” twice & “K’MERE” wrong!

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        Also Kalling it in last line

      • Alex Hicks

        “kharakter” … fixed

    • mancera

      Agreed, epik addition to the game.

  • Hammersteyn

    We used to unlock characters like this :
    Now we pay for every new one with either a DLC purchase or a Season pass. Replayablity is out the window.

    • Hammersteyn

      I mean if Scorpion was unlocked by completing the game with every character on hard or winning 100 online matches. People would play the game non stop to unlock him. Then add Sub-Zero or Michael Meyers or even Darkseid as an bigger unlockable incentive.

      I haven’t bought this game and it’s the first game from Ed Boon that hasn’t grace my library. All because of this DLC business model.

      • Grant Hancock

        Michael Myers YES !! …with alternate skins, Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard 😀

        • Hammersteyn

          Hehe I had a different Michael in mind.

          • Grant Hancock

      Or there was a fancy cheat to get them. How gaming has changed. Had you told me 18 years ago that I had to pay to unlock Cyber Smoke on MK3, I’d have laughed for dayz. It’s all about the Benjamin$ right now and not a damn thing we can do about it.

    Koo Koo for Koco Kola Darryn?

  • Admiral Chief Commander

    Why are you thinking about Ron Jeremy in hot pants???

    • Hammersteyn

      I think it’s a very apt comparison. A ninja is supposed to be stealthy. I can post a pic of Ron but I have already done my job for today.

  • Lardus

    Wow, that video is AWESOME!

    • Hammersteyn

      Agreed. “To hell with you”

      • Lardus

        I have to get this game now (for Scorpion and Lobo). Only problem is I do not think my old Xbox will have space for them both with all my ME DLC!!

  • Jonah Cash

    Now, that is a gameplay trailer!!!!!

  • scorpion looks pretty awesome and seems to have been designed to fit the dc universe well, which is awesome! cant wait to give him a go.
    also im sure martian manhunter will be dlc at some point, but rumours are that the next dlc character is general zod (perhaps tie in with man of steel launches?) and since the previous rumours of lobo, batgirl and now scorpion from the same source have come true we’ll probably get him next, and mmh in the next season pass.

    • Lardus

      Ja, started and finished the game yesterday. Manhunter is actually “eye candy” on the stage, so nothing in the Scorpion video hints at him being the next – it is just the stage they were on.

  • Rinceandspit…

    I thought it was ‘get over here’? Poor memory…

    • Jonah Cash

      I remember it like you do….. (Actually I am pretty sure that is what he says in Mortal Kombat)

      • Rinceandspit…

        Good! I thought I was going more nuts!

      • mancera

        That’s what he says…

        • Jonah Cash

          Dude you are using it wrong, it is: “That’s what she said”……. (Sorry couldn’t help myself)

          • mancera

            Thanks for the correction lmao!

      • HvR

        Jip, it was “GET OVER HERE!”,

        back, back, forward to throw the harpoon.

    • Lardus

      Most of the times “Get over here”, sometimes “Come here”. He is a versatile man our Scorpion.
