Raven has been confirmed to be in the game, I still do not know if she is going to be a playable character or not.

An image of Raven in OXM has been added to the story. Ed Boon has jumped on Twitter to state that while a character may be visible in story mode it does not necessarily make them a playable character. The description below seems to still confirm Raven, though.

It seems the Official Xbox Magazine wanted to jump on the train of hinting at characters in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

In issue 95, Raven is hinted as a playable character.

There's also an exclusive Injustice: Gods Among Us hands-on. New to Gods Among Us? It's one of those man-punching games, created by Mortal Kombat bods NetherRealm, and includes the pick of famous faces from DC Comics - Batman, The Joker, Nightwing, Lex Luthor, Bane, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Superman, together with minor Justice Leaguers like Cyborg, Raven and Captain Marvel. Blood there is none, but punching there is much.

Thoughts on this?

I'd be 100% certain to get this if this is true. And good thing too they finally add someone who isn't all about beating the opposition with fists and feet (though I could image they use her telepotation tricks ala Nightcrawler or the Titans 18 spotlight).

@Outside_85: Well I heard that they needed someone with magical qualities so I guess Raven fits in the spot, though if she is not a playable character when I buy this game then I hope she would be playable for the DLC.

Finaly, someone who actually read titans 18, and figured that this is how Raven would fight in the game.

Raven, wow. Well that's not who I would've bet they were going to add but I like it. If they want magic characters how about some Dr. Fate?

@marvellover1: The game is still two months away, hopefully the creators would announce her as a playable character.

Epic. I cannot wait to see her move set.

Personally I believe she really is in it. As far as I know every other character listed there are confirmed in it, so I'm sure she will be too. Why else list her with all of them.

Her chances of being in the game seems to have gone up as she does appear in the Injustice: Gods Amongst Us digital comic, where she is one of the survivors of the Metropolis bombing and helps chase the Mirror Master out of his hiding hole.
