Earlier this week, the long-awaited sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us was finally announced with an Injustice 2 teaser trailer. And once again, the heroes of the DC universe will be at each other’s throats.
While the trailer confirmed that Superman, Batman, the Flash, and Aquaman will return alongside newcomer Supergirl, it was later revealed that Red Lantern Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd will also be playable characters in Injustice 2. Presumably Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Nightwing, Hawkgirl, Cyborg, and Harley Quinn are also locks to return. And even though their counterparts in this alternate world were killed off, it just wouldn’t be a DC fighting game without the villainy of the Joker and Lex Luthor.
The first Injustice game had a great roster, especially when the DLC releases offered up even more characters. We’d love to see Batgirl, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna, Lobo, and the other characters come back as well. But if Injustice 2 is going to leave its mark, it needs to have a refreshed lineup. And that means characters who haven’t yet had the opportunity to appear in the game series.
Towards that end, we’ve come up with 12 DC heroes and villains who we feel would be great additions to the world of Injustice 2. These include some of the DCU’s most skilled warriors as well as some offbeat picks, and even a character whose inclusion would have been impossible just a few weeks ago.

Injustice 2 is slated to be released in March 2017, and we may get more news about its characters at E3 later this month.
