Now Playing: GS News Update: Injustice 2's Next Playable Character Revealed

The Injustice 2 website has been updated with character profiles for Bane, Poison Ivy, Robin, and Brainiac. These characters were all in the recent Injustice 2 story trailer, but those other than Robin have not yet been official announced as playable.

A new gameplay trailer released last week confirmed that Robin is a playable character. NetherRealm has said it will reveal a new character today, February 2, so we'll update this post when that character is confirmed.

Confirmed playable characters for Injustice 2 so far include Batman, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus. NetherRealm's Ed Boon has said the game will feature obscure characters.

You can see the official descriptions for Bane, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, and Robin below (via Eventhubs).

Injustice 2 launches on May 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You may not have to wait until then to play the game, however, as a closed beta is going on right now.


  • After Superman's defeat, Bane was betrayed by the Regime and relentlessly pursued by Batman. Having already spent most of his life in prison, he his determined to take revenge against his former Regime masters and turn Gotham into a city where his rule is law.


  • Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton's greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the "Last Son of Krypton" have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton--and discovers a new world worthy of his collection.

Poison Ivy

  • Dr. Pamela Isley was once an innovative, radical botanical biochemist with a singular goal: make the world safe for plant life to flourish. She joins the Society to further their common interest in bringing mankind to its knees, but at heart, Ivy's desire is to ensure that in any new world order, flora dominates fauna.


  • Raised from birth by the League of Assassins, Damian Wayne has always struggled with Batman's non-lethal code of honor. Now in direct opposition with his father, Damian seeks a new mentor in Superman--whom he considers to be more of a father than Batman ever was.
