Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena Round Three

Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena Round Three

Aquaman vs. Cyborg and Green Lantern vs. Solomon Grundy

Written by (ChewieOnIce) on 24 February 13 at 02:26 | Credit to Tveilor

Iconic DC characters continue to face off in the 'Battle Arena' tournament being held to promote NetherRealms' upcoming beat-em-up, Injustice: Gods Among Us. In round three of this public-voted competition, we see two Justice League members square off as the recently unveiled Aquaman takes on Cyborg outside of Wayne Manor. Remember kids: water and electricity are a dangerous combination.

In the next fight, we see two characters who have been enemies since the 1940s duke it out in a laboratory. Both characters are strongly associated with the colour green: The Green Lantern because he draws his power through the colour and Solomon Grundy because, well because he's more than a little mouldy.

Check out the previous rounds in the tournament here and here, and go to the game's official site to cast your vote on upcoming battles.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is due for release on April 16th for North America and April 19th for the rest of the world.

I've never been good at fighting games (and got really burned when I got a faulty fight-stick for my birthday a few years back), but this looks so good.

Glad both Aquaman and Green Lantern won.
I'm not a fan of the voice actor for Green Lantern though. He sounds older than he should.

I think George Eads would have been the perfect voice actor honestly.

Everyone should vote for Aquaman to win the whole thing just as a joke.

... The voice actor for Cyborg sounds familiar... sounds like the voice actor for him from the Teen Titans animated series

I'm not really sold on this. I'm sure I'll give it a try, but I don't have high hopes that I can get into it. Using things in the environment seems a little gimmicky and I don't like the flying through buildings bit. It seems like a really long animation and I feel like it'll disrupt the flow of the match. And I'm assuming the changes in camera angle are just done for these videos and does not actually occur during the match. However, if that does happen during matches, I'll hate it.

I will say that that the combo system seems pretty solid. I'll be interested to see what kind of meters and such will be in the game. Maybe they've already announced that stuff but I haven't seen much info on the game until today.

My nerd is showing, but Green Lantern and Solomon Grundy haven't been enemies since the 1940' least, not the Green Lantern in the game. Hal Jordan wasn't even created until 1959. At the time Grundy was introduced, his rival was the Alan Scott version of Green Lantern who was a completely different character whose powers came from a different power source entirely.

Since I'm probably the only person who cares, I'll shut up now. :)
