New 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Video Reveals Lex Luthor and Story Details

Check out Lex Luthor's special moves!

The DC fighting game by NetherRealm Studios is almost here and I'm ridiculously excited. Every little bit of info they throw our way right now is something to get giddy about. The lucky folks over at CVG got their hands on an exclusive new video. The sweet cinematic reveals more about the story (who's on which side and why) and reveals some of Lex Luthor's attacks!

Enjoy keeping this one on loop for the next hour or so.

As you might recall, Lex Luthor and Bane were previously announced via a magazine. While I'd love to see a video of Bane in action, I'd prefer a new reveal or two instead! If you're excited for the game, don't forget to check out the prequel digital comic every Tuesday!

'Injustice: Gods Among Us' will come out April 19th and, if you have the cash, there's a fairly awesome Battle Edition and Collector's Edition available.

Susan Eisenberg, George Newbern and Kevin Conroy are lending their voices to this game! How does it not get better than that? But I'm not interested in this game for 2 reasons:

1. I'm very bad at fighting games and their story mode is usually bad (not the case with this one)

2. I'm not interested in seeing another Kingdom Come inspired rehash where Superman takes control and establishes a dictatorial regime. That's something Superman would never, ever do for anything in the world, not even Lois' death would prompt that.

Flash and Wonder Woman just seemed off to me. I do think they could have come up with a better premise other than Superman gone bad again. It's never been done in a video game tho but I'm unfortunately not expecting much from the story here

Ocean Master always wins via massive storm of doom.

Fact: Joker brought Doomsday along in that submarine as a precaution in case he ran into Ocean Master.

Anyone and everyone's reaction upon seeing Ocean Master:

Lol.

Woah so Batman is teaming up with Lex Luthor?

Human Power bro. Dem meta-freaks be goin down yo.

1. I don't see how Superman, Flash and Wonder Woman could lose to Batman and Lex Luthor. Sure maybe they could get Superman with Kryptonite maybe, but than how do you handle WW and Flash?

2. Also which side do guys like Cyborg and Deathstroke fall on?

1. Plot Device is my guess.

2. Depends on how they deal with Cyborgs personality in this version. I'm more inclined to think he'd be on Batman's side and given that Supes is ruling with an iron fist I'm assuming all the villains would be in Bat's side with the exception of guys like The Joker and Harley and Grundy and Doomsday. I guess my only real question is which guys would technically be on the Superman's side, it's way too easy to assume why people would be against Superman in this situation but I'm not drawing up many names at the moment of people that would support his regime.

Ignore the plot. NetherRealm Studios isn't known for making good or logical stories. They do however make awesome fighting games.

Superman's voice sounds off and the Joker isn't Mark Hamill... Still looks good though.

Probably going to have to wait until a price drop for this one.

Exactly.

Besides, most people play fighting games for the fighting, not the plot.

I didn't really get that from the trailer. I just kinda feel like they are all going a little bit more "all out". Though you could be totally right. As a HUGE Flash fan, I'd love to see him as a villain.

"They already have that... it's called Reverse-Flash". Shut up.

Huh, it looks like they've modified the costumes designs a bit. It looked like the silver/grey accents on Batman's mask were gone and I think Wonder Woman's costume looked a little different as well.

It seems that it's another story of Superman going bad? How about one where Batman goes bad.
