I'm not fan of Hawkgirl, but don't see a problem with her being playable... Sinestro though, we already have Hal Jordan, wouldn't his space be better occupied by someone like Zatanna? I'm still hoping her, Black Canary, Huntress and MM being playable. Although I don't know how many slots are left.

By MM, do you mean Mirror Master? Because if so, I agree.

im pretty sure he's talking about Martian Manhunter. there is a big demand for him in the game.

Didn't think I could get more pumped for this game until now. Could not care less about random testimonials but the game looks like it's going to be awesome.

@SNascimento: I'm glad Sinestro is in the game, but you do make some good points. Injustice needs more girl playable characters.

Yep, I meant the martian. Can anyone not want him in the game?

Yay for Hawkgirl ehh for Sinestro, I wanna see more diversity throw in Vixen, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary and Batwoman. Not to mention more villans not related to Batman, Ares, Cheetah, Circe, Captain Cold they have plenty of options. Maybe some will come out as dlc.

I'm sad that they're going for popularity as the main factor when deciding what character to put into the game, there are many other characters that would bring a lot of diversity to the roster, like Martian Manhunter, Mirror Master, Plastic Man, The Creeper, The Spectre (a tad nerfed though to fit into the game), Scarecrow, Lobo, and others, but being that they're not that popular they'll probably wont make it into the roster (maybe Martian Manhunter).

Only surprising given how much we all know Ed Boon hates Hawkman.

More excited for the next Arkham Asylum and it has zero info. Fighting games get old in about 0.2 seconds.

Hawkgirl can be rage-y too....kinda. and she's smooshing people with her mace, so thats something.

Who the hell wants to play as Hawkgirl? That's like shitting on Hawkman. Sinestro tho? Happy Happy. His shoulder pads are stupid, but I'm happy he's in this. I would have liked to see a GL DLC with other ring characters. Kyle, Larfleeze, St Walker, Guy, Atrocitus. Well that's one rumor taken care of. Next up, Black Adam.
