Fighter Pack 1 characters were Red Hood, Sub-Zero and Starfire which were released in June, July and August, respectively. How quickly Raiden thinks he has won though before Black Manta (Aqua Man's nemesis) steps up to bat, or shoot rockets looking to take anyone down. There is no getting more badass than that. The most prominent reveal of the trailer, shows that the half-demon Hellboy will be making his debut in the game.
Interestingly enough, Hellboy wasn't the only non-DC comic book character rumored for the fighter.
If you're keen on the special editions after buying and enjoying the standard edition, never fear. Players who have already purchased the standard edition of the game can get all of the same content in the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack for $39.99, also for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Additionally, Mike Mignola's Hellboy is the third character to be featured in that pack!
The second batch of Injustice 2 DLC characters have been unveiled, and they include some pretty awesome surprises. Stay tuned here at EventHubs for the latest updates on Injustice 2.
While completely unexpected, Hellboy is a welcome addition to the fighting game franchise. The genre usually doesn't bother much with a dynamic story for each of the characters.
Fans of Injustice 2 have been speculating Hellboy's entry for quite awhile now; months before the game's release in November 2016, game director Ed Boon tweeted out a poll asking for the best "non-MK" (Mortal Kombat) guest characters for Injustice 2.
