Batman and Harley Quinn on the same team?!
“Injustice: Gods Among Us” came out in 2013, a fighting game with a slew of awesome DC Characters.
The plot was incredibly interesting with Superman being a tyrant. It also boasted a slew of very cool female playable characters like Zatanna, Raven and Hawkgirl.
“Injustice 2” came out in May 2017. Here’s a list of the awesome female characters included in “Injustice 2,” If you’re still on the fence about whether or not to buy. It serves as a reminder that Wonder Woman’s not the only lady in comics.
Harley Quinn is working with Batsy in “Injustice 2,” which is set five years after the events of the first game. Batman is trying to reestablish order in the world. But he’s being opposed by the Flash’s main nemesis, Gorilla Grodd.
Harley is helping Batman oppose Gorilla Grodd. This iteration of Harley is rocking the jester’s hat, my favorite accessory of hers. Her weapon of choice here is the hammer, and she certainly knows what she’s doing.
Dinah Drake aka Black Canary has been in DC Comics since the late 1940s. Dinah, originally married to a police detective, goes on to be involved romantically with Justice Leaguer the Green Arrow. In another version, Dinah’s mother is also the Black Canary.
The daughter then goes on to be with Green Arrow. One of Black Canary’s powers is an ultrasonic scream known as the Canary Cry. Black Canary and Green Arrow are on Batman’s team in “Injustice 2.” She’s appeared under several identities of the CW’s “Arrow.”
A Wonder Woman antagonist since the 1940s, Cheetah has seen several different women, and one man, take on the mantle. Her main identity though, is Barbara Ann Minerva. And that’s the one we see in “Injustice 2.”
To be sure, Cheetah and Wonder Woman have no love lost between them in “Injustice 2.” The Amazonian princess confronts Cheetah in the sequel game as Diana has sided with Superman. You can also choose the hero Vixen as one of her skins in the game.
A fan favorite villain and number one on our list, Harley Quinn’s one true love, Poison Ivy, is here to kick some ass in “Injustice 2.” Unfortunately, the lovebirds are on opposite sides in the game.
Poison Ivy teams up with the bad guys because she’s not a fan of how Batman’s regime handles the issue of the environment. And everyone knows not even Harley can make Poison Ivy turn her back on her beloved plants.
If you’re my age or younger, then you probably know Starfire from the Cartoon Network versions of the Teen Titans. Koriand’r or Kory aka Starfire is an alien princess from the planet Tamaran. Kory had to face some serious jealousy issues from her sister Komand’r after the latter was unable to harness solar energy.
This disqualified Komand’r from succession to the throne on Tamaran. And her efforts to destroy both Tamaran and Kory led Kory to flee to earth and become the Starfire we all know and love.
Catwoman and Batman have always had a complicated relationship, to say the very least. Their relationship in “Injustice” is no exception. After co-founding the resistance against Superman in “Injustice: Gods Among Us” with Batman, Catwoman goes undercover as a mole against new villain group, the Society, in “Injustice 2.” Considering trust is an essential part of any relationship, it begs the question: Why do Batman and Catwoman keep at it?
Kara Zor-El of course starts out on her cousin Superman’s side in “Injustice 2.” But when she sees what Superman has done and how deeply ingrained in him tyranny is, she aligns her beliefs with those of Batman.
Supergirl is pretty popular right now with her own show on CBS. That version of Kara is still learning to accept and control her powers. And she occasionally guest stars on other DC shows like “Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash” and “Arrow.”
Because the game is so new, “Injustice 2” will run you about $60 at Gamestop. For the PC version, you’re looking at around the same price. It might be worth the cash though, with an 87 percent score on Metacritic.
Here are ENTITY, we never pass up the chance to play some awesome women in video games.
