As promised earlier, Netherrealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon has released a screenshot of the two newest fighters in Injustice: Gods Among Us, Green Lantern and The Joker.
Does his over-sized crotch and abs make you uncomfortable with your manhood? Haha! The character design is w/e to me, honestly. It doesn't bother me.
Something about it rubs me the wrong way. Can't point it out
something just isn't sitting right with me...
He looks like he's pumping his chest and sucking his stomach in, and his crotch is just...prominent. i don't understand this company's obsession with superheroes. I find mortal kombat characters to be 10 times more interesting and badass. superheroes just look lame, specially in a fighting game like this.
Looks like Green Lantern to me....though, you know.......make mine MARVEL (in terms of which comic company I like and follow). I think the thing making him look a bit "off" is his right hand glove looking pinkish, but looking at his other hand, which is white, I'm pretty sure that pinkishness is just the lighting interacting with the material. It's nice to see The Joker, though it's obviously not a surprise of any kind. Solid design though, I like it. I hope the roster is huge, but I'm pretty sure it won't be any larger than MK vs DC (20-24). Sometimes I wish I were a tekken fan, for no other reason than they always seem to have HUGE rosters. Anyway, I support Ed Boon with every project he does, and this will be no exception. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for Doomsday, Deathstroke, Darksied and The Spectre.........oh, and of course THE MAIN MAN, LOBO. You hear me NeatherRealm?! Lobo BETTER be in this one, you BASTICHES !!!!
didnt DC reveal that the green lantern is gay? thats what he looks like...gay like he should have high heels on. yeah they did reveal HES GAY they're probably just trying to make him look a little gay to match DC recent revelation. coincidentally 'wood' is no longer his weakness...
@Autodidactdystopia That's a different Green Lantern. The one in the game is Hal Jordan - the main and most widely known Green Lantern from Earth. The one that they made gay in the New 52 comics is Alan Scott. He hardly matters though.
Who the heck thought we needed more DC beat 'em ups? Someone make a decent Superman action game, dang it! Anyway, his abs and crotch, eh, plate(?) look terrible. But the worst part is that he is floating like he's wearing invisible high heels. "coincidentally 'wood' is no longer his weakness..." http://www.youtube.com/watc... .....but, uh, yeah, wrong Lantern. They turned the original one gay because no one gave a crap about him anymore and DC needed an angle for a one issue sales boost.
@silent Ummmm.......are there alot of DC fighting games? Care to point me to them? Last one I recall is MK vs DC from 4 years ago, and the one before that was......errrrr......oh yeah, there wasn't one before that. Though I may have a memory of one from back in the SNES/Genesis days, which I never played. Green Lantern have an armor-like costume isn't new. I don't read many DC comics (aside from Swmp Thing from their VERTIGO line back in like 2005/6), but I seem to recall some member/s of the GLCorps wearing armor similar to that at some points, and it certainly doesn't look out of place for the character regardless. And have you EVER even read any kind of Green Lantern comic or even seen more than 1 picture of the character? The way he's floating there is a TYPICAL Green Lantern pose. Floating looks like high heels? Dude.......there are plenty of things in this world that actually make sense to complain about, and you somehow pick one that's NOT. (typical for a vast majority modern internet users I suppose)
@Larry Alright, Smart Guy, when does he float 3 millimeters from the ground? And I'm not mocking the armor for being armor....I'm mocking it for being fugly armor. The crotch plate looks like a tongue and the abs just look bad. So quit your nerdrage.
oh...another 2d fighter, atleast gameplay looks more fun than mvc, mortal combat and street fighter. but c'mon what we really want is powerstone 3.
@ Larry L "Last one I recall is MK vs DC from 4 years ago, and the one before that was......errrrr......oh yeah, there wasn't one before that." There was a Justice League Fighter on the Sega genesis/Super NES http://www.youtube.com/watc... But you are right...there really isn't many DC fighter games. I personally don't see an issue with Green Lantern's outfit. This is Ryan Reynolds outfit he wore when he was cast as Green Lantern. Makes sense since they also are using Christian Bale's Batman outfit. Maybe the game will come with the original outfit skins as well.
@silent He looks to be aout a foot or so off the ground, not an inch. http://www.modelcars.com/mo... Look familiar? I'm telling you, it's a common pose when GL or really ANY flying super-hero is hovering at ground level. It's a common superman pose as well. @level up Yeah, I thought I remembered a DC fighting game from my SNES/Genesis days. So this will be the 3rd one in history.....silent is right.....there are FAR too many. /s
Oh, silly MK character design! Seriously he looks like Ryan Reynolds GL....bleh.
Oh my, Larry. For the last time, IT IS NOT ABOUT THE POSE. He is not an inch off the ground in that picture (poor perspective is at fault for looking like that....look, GL doesn't even have a shadow). He is HOVERING OVER an opponent, not floating an "entire" inch. And even if he were, note the elevated knee. THAT ISN'T EVEN THE SAME POSE. And I never said we HAD a "lot" of DC beat em ups. I just said we don't need more. The beat em up is such a generic way to use an IP! The DC universe wasted on it!
@Silent Maybe we're looking at a different pic but where is he "HOVERING OVER the opponent" as you put it. http://igogaming.files.word... He's floating as Superman and Wonder Woman does in the same game. And he is floating because GL can fly. "I just said we don't need more." We never had that many to begin with how can we not want more?! This GL costume is terrible, and the Joker again? Can we see Sinestro, Mongol, Vandel Savage, Mr. Freeze, Brainiac, Mr. Mxyzptlk! Whoa...Mr. Mxyzptlk would be bad a**, I dare NR to try and incorporate him!
@Maniac I was responding to Larry and a different picture that HE posted.
B-B-BALLS OF STEEL!
@Autodid Nope. This is Hal Jordan the first modern day Green Lantern. They made the original Green Lantern gay when they rebooted their universe. It was a retarded thing to do to a 70 year old character with a wife and kids. It'd be like suddenly making Superman gay, you just can't do that.
after reviewing the photo
why cant DC stick with original outfit for Green Lantern?? this costume look wack.
also look like he is held in air by invisble rope.
It doesn't bother me it just look stupid especially with the Joker in the same screenshot. It reminds me of the stupid look Ryan Reynolds (even though that is his actual body) in the film. It just doesn't look real
Nevermind him the joker looks badass!!
Is that a herd of cattle, an eskimo, an 18 wheeled truck, an F 16 fighter jet, a sofa, a can of Coka Cola, an apartment building, an iphone, a guitar, an uzi, a fire truck, a jukebox and box of paperclips in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
Screw Green Lantern, who's voicing Joker now that Mark Hamill's retired from his Joker career. John DiMaggio should do it if they havent found a voice actor. Watch Batman: Under the Red Hood and tell me he doesnt pull it off!
That entire movie was brilliant.
Yes, yes it was :)
It's a video game about SUPER HEROES fighting each other of course they're going to have perfect bodies male/female.
I really like the Joker's look in this game. Don't have much to say about Green Lantern though. He has an awkward pose in this screen, but that's about it. The design itself is ok.
The thing with green lantern is that he looks like a roid head I imagined him lean not that buff. The Joker looks badass alot like his look in AC but a little bulkier which is a good thing hes to skinny in AC...
I don't get the problem with it...
I think it looks fine, fits the game design. You can say that its 100X better than the movie costume at least
Looks fine. The hair could use a little work but not bad.
Looks fine to me, looking forward to this game.
Is that what he look like in The New 52?
Looks ok to me. In that screen he looks like he is levitating a little. The stance reminds me of Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. Speaking of ugly. Wonder Woman looks horrendous in this game. I thought she looked bad in MKvsDC. She suppose to be beautiful like how she is always portrayed. oh well i suppose its still early days.
You know I said the samething somewhere earlier and to some friends. Netherrealms has a grudge against making Wonder Woman look even kind of attractive. She looked like China in MK vs DC (ok not really) but she was super butch and her moves were terrible, I laughed out loud when I first did them...then I cried a little. I seriously hate NR's art style for their fighters. It's as if they hired all the old Image artists from the 90's.
maybe they just dont have a great artist specialised in making the females look attractive like other games. I mean even in the recent MK, all the females faces looked rather unattractive but on the neck down everything looked awesome. Ok the endowments looked abit oversized but I like that anyway. (and I think most people like their females top-heavy) I actually preffered the masked versions of Kitana and Jade. (Mileena of course her as well but thats obvious) Still for me its unacceptable to allow Wonder Woman to be the way she is at this moment.
Is Aqua Man in this game? I'm sure we'll be saying the same thing....
is it because hes not black
Gah! Let's hope they have an alternate costume for GL. I mean seriously what is up with Netherrealm Studios and their art staff. All their characters including the ones from MK9 remind me of the Image comic era...yuuuck. What's up with that green line running down his chest to his crotch? It looks like he spilt something from his chin(GROSS!) And he has mesh/nylon legs? Are they seriously trying to insinuate something? And the Joker looks to be about the same. Every character seemed to have gotten a new look but Joker appears to be straight from MK vs DC.
i see nothing wrong with green lantern at all
Are we seriously so preoccupied with Superman Batman The Joker and every pair of boobs in this video game that we cant give Green Lantern the proper respect he deserves. Even his uniform in the Ryan Reynolds movie would be a step up from this...meh.
Hal's packing some heat..
ugly? wow, picky much? if the op knew how much painstaking detail it takes to replicate these characters in game, he wouldn't be talking, what a pric*, have some respect, at least he's in the game instead of not!
As a comic fan, it always infuriates me to see Joker included in a fighting game that has the likes of Superman, Green Lantern and Solomon Grundy, I mean, seriously...
