Zatanna joins the fight for ‘Injustice’ Aug. 13
Fan-favorite magician, sorceress, and fishnet stocking aficionado Zatanna will be the next DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today. The character appeared in an official online trailer going toe-to-toe with monstrous zombie Solomon Grundy.
According to Comics Alliance, she’ll be available on Aug. 13 for $4.99 on the PlayStation Network, and 400 MS points on Xbox Live. Zatanna joins the roster of other DLC characters, including Batgirl, Lobo, Martian Manhunter and General Zod.
Due to be reintroduced as part of The New 52, Zatanna’s appearance in Injustice: Gods Among Us is well timed. Unlike many of the other characters in the game, Zatanna has a cleaner, simpler appearance more in line with her comic book costume. She is not yet heavily armored, nor is she wearing her purple-and-white ensemble briefly made visible again in 2004’s Identity Crisis. It’s likely (hopeful, even) that several skins will be made available for the popular character.
Injustice: Gods Among Us tells of an alternate timeline that deviates from the well-known DC Comics mythology: Superman kills the Joker in retaliation for murdering Lois Lane, and sets up a world government – the Regime – with him in control. Only Batman and his alliance of heroes – the Insurgency – can fight back. Tied to Batman due to her appearances in Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited, with whom where her loyalties lie in Injustice: Gods Among Us?
