There Should Be No Justice For These Three Characters In ‘Injustice 2’

It’s been less than a week since Injustice 2 hit stores and people are already claiming who their main characters are for tournaments. However, with its current roster, pre-downloadable content, there are some characters that were better off being a skin. This is not because of their skills or gameplay. It’s because of both.

Scarecrow

Scarecrow

When I heard that he was going to be available I thought he was going to be a good character. His attacks at first looked similar to Ghost Rider in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 with the chain swinging but was still giving him the benefit of the doubt. But in the end, there was only doubt.

Even in YouTube videos showing his combos, he is just too slow as a character to set up those combos. He wouldn’t last in gameplay against zoners, those who like to keep distant from up close fighting, like Deadshot or Green Arrow. I was expecting the same Scarecrow who was the background assist in the first Injustice as he appeared faster, but this one is just cool to look at, not to play with.

Who should replace him:

Killer Croc would have been a better addition to the roster as he is not only a heavy character but also fast. If they use his speed like in Arkham City he can keep up with fast characters like Supergirl and the Flash.

Black Adam

Black AdamIf you’ve played the first game you know that Shazam was killed and we were left with Black Adam. With no change to his fighting style, he is just a bore. Even with electrical powers… a big yawn. I get there had to be a balance between heroes and villains, but I believe the upcoming DLC packs will have that covered. He would’ve been a better character if they gave him some of Shazam’s skills but we’re stuck in the first game with this character.

Who should replace him:

Static Shock would be a great change in character selection. It’s a shame that he’s not in it, but was featured in the first mobile version. I would’ve love to see what he can do in a game with the use of multiple buttons.

Cyborg

cyborgCyborg is an important part of the Justice League and Teen Titans but in a fighting game, sorry fans, I think that he should only be included in the story. similar to Black Adam, there are no real changes to his skills. If creators of the game were going to recycle characters at least give them something new besides a meter finisher. even with the armor and skins earned through gameplay, he should be in the background as an assist.

Who should replace him:

Players would’ve been happy if they’ve taken out Cyborg and replaced him with Beastboy. We have Starfire coming in a DLC pack, but the inclusion of more Teen Titans would be interesting. Beastboy against Gorilla Grodd would’ve been cool to see and it can still be a possibility if they use him as a skin.

The overall game is still great though it’s more like Mortal Kombat since it’s created by NetherRealm Studios, but still fun. So far the online server is functioning and online play is smooth. With the inclusion of MK characters in the game, I’m not sure if they’re thinking of redoing the whole DC vs. MK game, but whether they are or not, they should leave Scarecrow, Cyborg, and Black Adam out of that discussion.

Injustice 2 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. No word if the game would come to the Nintendo Switch, but fingers crossed.
