Check out Lex Luthor's role in this bleak world and Black Adam is revealed!

We're still counting down the days until Injustice: Gods Among Us is here, but Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios is making the wait easier by constantly giving us new stuff to enjoy. New costumes, new stages, new characters... and today we have an in-depth story trailer for Lex Luthor! Also, the video has the reveal of Black Adam! No idea if he's playable, but at least we know he exists in this universe!

Awesome. For a second there, I was afraid they were going to make him noble. Turns out he's doing the right thing for the wrong reasons, and I love it :)

Black Adam isn't black and bald lol, he might just be tan. Anyways I hope they make the classic costume for him.

Nah, that's Shazam. You can briefly see the symbol on his chest.

I don't think so. Shazams cape is white isn't is? It's too much black. I think I even saw a little circle with the R in it possibly.

Yes, but perhaps it's an alternate costume? I only think it's him because that looks like his symbol on the chest.

Plus I see what your saying about the lightning shape on his chest but that is yellow and shazams is actually white for this game.

Hmmm, could be an alternate.

perhaps this another character reveal, or its Black Adam's alt costume. Shazam's alt has poofy shoulder things, like in the renaissance.

Black Adam's costume is terrible. They took the freedom they had with the character wayy too far

Excuse me, I have question:

If Luthor says he always chooses winning side, why he always lose?

Thank you.

Nice find! So yes, it's definitely Shazam. Though I'd love for Robin to make the cut :(

Pretty sure that the guy in the black cape is still Captain Marvel, but as a lackey for the dictatorship. The new guy with the gold and blue costume looks more like Dr Fate. In fact, I'm certain he's Dr. Fate!

I hope Black Adam is just a boss. Cause I think he's gonna be a carbon copy of Shazam if he's playable.

, @ccraft: Note that it is Captain Marvel in an alt costume, not another character. After the reign of Superman in this universe, heroes and villains get alt costumes i.e. Hal Jordan (YL alt), Lex (Grey suit), Nightwing (black and purple alt), etc. If you watch the videos you can see some of them.

That really is an awful design. I mean, I get what they were going for, but... damn, that's bad.

@Kal'smahboi: @StMichalofWilson: @LexLuthor:

Don't underestimate him. I think Lex is actually doing the noble thing here. I think when he says, "I always choose the winning side," he's pretty much saying the side I choose will win and YOU KNOW he's not gonna side with Superman.

In anycase, this was epic. I love Luthors characterization in this video I have chills.

Also, I like both Captain Marvel and Black Adams costumes here better than they're new 52 ones.

I really like how bulky that armor looks on Lex. He looks like a man expecting to fight gods. I like that they can use even more DC characters for stage hits but it's getting to be a bit silly that these guys are just attacking you out of no where in the middle of a fight. I'm extremely interested in seeing the story context of these backgrounds.
