Meh... Who wants serious/bitter Cyborg, when we can have hilariously over-the-top "Booyah!" TTG Cyborg?

@Pyrosa: Exactly I hate the direction they've put him in since New 52 completely separated him from the Teen Titans.

All the real gamers will be waiting for the complete addition where they include all the withheld content eg. characters, under the overused banner of "DLC"

so yeah see you in about 12 months Injustice 2.

@hotwog21: I know I will. That's what I did with MKX.

Game looks great but I didn't like the button layout for the first Injustice. It felt like every character had the same button layout moves.

Since they mentioned about obscure characters, Captain Rip should be given a shot at this.

I hope they don't follow the SF V route, It's a complete rip off, I feel money raped...but boy, the game is so good

Cyborg is definitely one of my top 5 DC characters and so glad he's back for more Injustice game series.

Hell I'm even looking forward to him in the upcoming Injustice League movie this year.

Injustice 2 is shaping up to be great!

Personally I would love to see Spider-man thrown into the mix or perhaps another iconic character like Captain America or Hulk. The possibilities are endless considering the universe NetherRealm can draw from.

(Ninja, Marvel is not... I mean, they... ughhh, never-mind.)

@videogameninja: NetherRealm would have to go to Disney and Sony for the rights to use those characters.
