Ever since Injustice: Gods Among Us was unveiled, fans have been clamoring for the inclusion of Martian Manhunter. Unfortunately, he wasn’t available at launch. That all changes today, however, with the latest DLC release.
To celebrate the launch of the Martian Manhunter DLC pack, NetherRealm studios has tossed together a short video detailing the origins of J’onn J’onzz. If you had watched the excellent Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, a lot of this will be old news to you. What is new is the revelation that J’onzz has left the Justice League in the wake of the events leading up to Injustice, and that he is now going up against Superman.
Martian Manhunter is just the latest character to be added as DLC to the DC fighting game, and he won’t be the last. The team is already hinting that they’re adding a fan favorite character next, but details are scarce at the moment. If a recent poll is any indication, however, we could be seeing Zatanna or Red Hood joining the ranks of Injustice.
The Martian Manhunter DLC will be out today for Xbox 360 and PS3. Like always, the Wii U version will come later.
