Introducing Raiden, and Black Lightning

WB Games and NetherRealms have released a new trailer, introducing the move-set and Ultimate for Raiden, the second new character in the Character Pack 2 DLC for Injustice 2.

Introducing Black Manta

Black Manta is the first character to be joining the roster of Injustice 2 from the second fighter pack, and he looks like he’s going to be a great addition. Black Manta is the arch-nemesis of Aquaman, a hero who has been severely lacking the presence of any villains from his own gallery of rogues.

His moveset looks fast and fluid, with his ability to fly and launch projectiles looking especially useful for players. Also, his exit is most certainly the best in the game up to this point.
