Injustice: Gods Among Us Roster Updated With Two More

NetherRealm Studios' bizarrely titled DC Comics fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us is now home to two more confirmed superhumans, with WBIE announcing the addition of Nightwing and Cyborg as part of its San Diego Comic-Con 2012 reveals (via Polygon). The duo join a previously announced roster of fighters that includes Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Solomon Grundy, and Flash.

The game's staff-wielding Nightwing appears to be modeled after Dick Grayson's post-Robin alter-ego rather than the Kryptonian crimefighter from the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths days. Cyborg's roots are with the Teen Titans, though DC's "New 52" re-alignment of its comics universe establishes him as one of the Justice League's founders.

NetherRealm is pretty well crushing it right now with its recent work on the Mortal Kombat franchise. Injustice: Gods Among Us will tone down the violence, but that seems like a worthwhile tradeoff for the opportunity to smack that smug look off of Superman's face. It realy is a weird title though.
