Those rumors that were reported a few weeks back are turning out to be true as Scorpion has officially been named as the third character coming to Injustice as DLC. I, like most people, have mixed feelings regarding his addition to the roster. On one hand, I am a huge fan of the character and am happy to have him in yet another game. On the other hand, one of the things that I praised the game for in my review was its dedication to staying very close to the DC universe. Scorpions addition blurs the lines between comic and game, which might not be a good thing.
Like it or not, he is coming. I do have to praise NetherRealm’s work to make him an original character and not just a simple port of his MK9 persona. He could make a great addition to the roster, even if he doesn’t quite fit into the lore. Let’s just make sure that he doesn’t show up in the excellent comic book series based on the game, okay?
