Lex Luthor, Bane confirmed for Injustice: Gods Among Us roster

Two more nefarious ne'er-do-wells are on deck to hurl both punches and one-liners in NetherRealm Studios' forthcoming DC Comics fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us. Lex Luthor, classic Superman baddie and girlfriend kidnapping enthusiast, shows up to the party in a powered robotic suit, using a special shield and gadget-based attacks.

Meanwhile, perennial Batman-buster Bane is a grappling-based character devoid of projectiles, using his Venom-infused bigness to out-big other opponents. Given the character's history, we can wager a guess as to what wrestling move his full-meter Super will predominantly feature.

While no trailer has been released as of yet, a scan of the latest Game Informer (tweeted by NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon) does give us a glimpse of what the characters will look like. Luthor's appearance is quite similar to his robotic look in DC Universe Online, which is fine, we suppose, but Bane's resemblance to his appearance in Batman & Robin gives us pause. Which is to say, we had to pause and throw up after being forced to remember that movie.
