Red Hood "Coming Soon" to Injustice 2

The first of three previously revealed DLC characters for the popular fighting game has been announced.

Batman villain Red Hood will soon be coming to the rogue's gallery of Injustice 2. Today, Ed Boon, the creative director of NetherRealm Studios, announced via Twitter that the antagonist will soon be coming to the game. In addition to this news, Boon shared a screenshot that shows the character juggling his opponent in the air.

Red Hood will be a part of the game's first fighter pack, which will include former Teen Titan Starfire and Mortal Kombat's Sub-Zero.

Red Hood is a former sidekick of Batman. In the last several years, the character has gained popularity from his animated movie, Under The Red Hood, which is based off the comic story arc, Under the Hood. The new Red Hood and the Outlaws comics series, which is part of the DC Rebirth series, has the character teaming up with fallen Amazon Artemis and failed Superman-clone Bizarro.

A release date and price for Injustice 2's first fighter pack has not yet been announced, but it is included in the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of the game.
