Those excited to get their hands on NetherRealm’s Injustice: Gods Among Us will be excited to know the roster just grew two characters strong. Powerhouse Batman villain very notable for breaking the Bat will be appearing in Justice in his venom-pumped form. Bane will also be appearing alongside Lex Luthor, Superman’s arch-nemesis, wearing his iconic Power Suit. This news piece comes from some magazine scans of @Gamer magazine in which it was later confirmed by creative director Ed Boon on Twitter.

The scans detail both characters as follows:

BANE - True to his hulking form, Bane is a power character and a master of grappling who uses wrestling-inspired moves without a projectile in sight. The Batman villain’s character trait is to pump venom through his body. When triggered, it amps up his power and makes him even more dangerous.

LEX LUTHOR - Superman’s nemesis is not only key to the story mode, but he’s also a heavy-duty fighter, thanks to his armored suit. Luthor relies heavily on gadget-based attacks, and can launc missiliees and suck foes towards him. His special trait is a shield that can be powered up by holding a button.

Bane and Lex join a roster composed of Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, The Joker, Green Lantern, Deathstroke, Flash and Green Arrow. Check out the scans of the character in game below, and look back for more info as it is released.
