Injustice (Mobile) Superman Godfall Challenge Mode
Merry Christmas, Injustice fans. The good folks at NetherRealm Studios have been doling out gifts and surprises every day this month to their players. When you open the virtual advent calendar today, prepare to gasp.
Players have seen a string of new Challenge Mode characters some might consider a bit OP (Over-powered), but mostly these have been newer or more obscure characters. This time, they roll out a sterioded version of someone who may not have really needed performance enhancement. But, who's complaining?
Actually, Godfall Superman may have your PvP opponents complaining, but I'm betting they'll be using one themselves. Why?
This new Kandorian makeover version sports a hellacious passive ability - Power of Kandor. Blocking basic attacks reflects that damage on the attacker. That means it hurts, unless you're quick or can unload a Special Move.
How about those base health stats? And a nasty Frozen Delivery special attack as well.
Won't Stay Bottled Up
Opening this gift means tearing through the five layers of wrapping paper in the form of a series of five challenges. Complete them all and you can attempt a harder Expert version, and maybe go for Nightmare level.
Each set of battles you win, you get a part of Godfall Supe's stylish Kryptonian swag (Chest Armor, Boots, Belt, Cape and Gloves). Once you have won all five challenges, a Gold Level Superman Godfall is added to your collection.
But, you don't have to complete all of the battles to win a prize:
- 24 Fights Won - Free Bronze Booster Pack (worth 8,000 credits)
- 36 Fights Won - +15,000 Power Credits
- 48 Fights Won - Free Silver Booster Pack (worth 35,000 credits)
Doesn't Take a Brainiac
I can't tell you how to best take down the opposition and there's countless combinations, considering how many characters there are to choose from, but here's my suggestions:
- Challenge 1: Bronze Characters Only - Nightwing up front to deflect, Deathstroke for special attacks. Lex Luthor gives 15% boost.
- Challenge 2: Lex Luthor Must Be On Your Team - You could field an entire team of Luthors, but one's enough. He's a good opener since his Lance can keep opponents from stacking while your guys charge up.
- Challenge 3: Bronze or Silver Characters Only - Nightwing or Luthor for power drain, Bane's 2nd attack is devastating. Green Lantern or Black Adam is good in the 2nd slot. I don't get people who lead with Adam.
- Challenge 4: Batman Must Be On Your Team - Finally a "(Blank) Must Be On Your Team" I'm looking forward to. There's really no bad choice when it comes to using the Caper Crusader.
- Challenge 5: Doomsday Must Be On Your Team - Can I just say Hells Yeah?! Doomsday is my go-to guy. Hero Slayer and Hero Killer are both great passives from the Prime and Regime versions respectively.
Clothes Make the Superman
In the Superman: Godfall story by Joe Kelly and Michael Turner, an amnesia suffering Superman arrives in the Kryptonian city of Kandor. The city had been shrunk by Brainiac and kept something like terrarium aboard his ship.
He's discovered by a woman named Lyla who nurses him back to health but doesn't tell Superman who he really is, convincing him that he's a lowly government worker and they are married.
At some point, Lyla steals his powers and breaks free from the shrunken city, desiring to fly to Metropolis and become like a God on Earth. Ironically, she discovers that humans didn't serve or worship Superman, but loved and respected him for his deeds and care for them.
The theme seems a good fit compared to the Gods Among Us storyline and indeed the Godfall costume is a bad-ass new look for a bad-ass OP'ed version of the Last Son of Krypton.
John_2075May 17, 2015, 1:04 pmSo does anyone know if he is available through say the challenge pack? Or was he limited time only?
Will_1265January 1, 2015, 10:10 pmYea im on Android. But I will receive the 1st 4 gear peices for completing those 4 challenges. Right? Even tho I didn't finish all 5
Capt. Eliza CreststeelJanuary 1, 2015, 11:12 pmContributor- you should get a Bronze pack, Silver Pack and 15,000 in coins
Will_1265January 1, 2015, 9:41 pmHow long does it take till the superman challenge rewards get given out? And how do I go about receiving them?
Capt. Eliza CreststeelJanuary 1, 2015, 9:57 pmContributor- On iOS it's instant after you finish them. Android rewards may come later.
Will_1265January 1, 2015, 9:40 pmCuz with the online ones where u get ranked and top % win gear and gold credits. After it is over, couple days later u receive you rewards. Still waiting on those too. I know I was in top 10%. So that 30k, 1 rare gear, 1 common gear.
Will_1265January 1, 2015, 9:37 pmSup guys. Question. I completed 4/5 challenges b4 it was over. I got Booster packs and all the stuff. Obviously no superman. I started the game the day the challenge started.. Now my question is, I still rece8ve the super man gear in relation to the challenge I won right? Like I'll gt he chest peice, glove n stuff? I haven't received any of them yet and made me wonder if I only get them if I win the superman too and do all 5 challenges
Capt. Eliza CreststeelJanuary 1, 2015, 9:58 pmContributor- You don't win actual gear. They just represent the progress. You get the card packs and coins.
bharath_4767December 31, 2014, 4:38 amwhen will be the next challenge ?
Capt. Eliza CreststeelDecember 31, 2014, 12:44 pmContributor- likely tomorrow afternoon. They tend to come out the Thursday after the previous one ended.
VanCokeDecember 30, 2014, 12:31 amhey guys if u guys have him could u email me ur profile account info I just started and saw this guy and can't get him I'm not a scammer and I won't mess up ur account plz
VanCokeDecember 30, 2014, 12:32 amBy the way my emails vancoke200
SPAM - dannyDecember 22, 2014, 8:03 pmI use a hack for Injustice: Gods Among Us that gave me unlimited energy, power credits, boosters, heroes and others. Here it is: http://g4mehacks.com/injustice-gods-among-us-hack/
Andrew_3433December 22, 2014, 7:49 pmWhat happens if I complete the challenge again in expert? Do I get a second superman god fall so I can elite it?
Capt. Eliza CreststeelDecember 22, 2014, 8:22 pmContributor- correct. You can stack several. Good luck. You have a week
RA_3433December 20, 2014, 9:21 amI've got my Doomsday up to level 45, elite I, all specials maxed, and I still can't go 60 seconds against that regenerating 99k Superman. Also using Godfall Superman (level 34) and Regime Black Adam (Elite I level 38).
I think you might need Raven with her health swapping ability to do this one. Unfortunately that's a character I don't have.
7or7December 17, 2014, 11:54 amGot any tips for it
which characters should i use?
7or7December 17, 2014, 11:53 amI only have 7 more to go and my team in Ins Batman or Green L Sinsestro, Krypto Lex or CW Green Arrow, and Regime Doomsday.
dasu22December 17, 2014, 8:10 amDash: The best way is charged up gold doomsday for me. Worth the grind to get gold doomsday and leveling up his attacks. That guy is a beast.
lbj_4638December 15, 2014, 12:14 amCorrection to your article: Godfall Superman does not stop all basic damage when blocking.
The damage is reflected to your opponent, meaning both of you gets damaged.
Capt. Eliza CreststeelDecember 15, 2014, 6:40 amContributor- Good catch, thanks. I misread that as 'deflect' not reflect.
Dash_4519December 13, 2014, 3:42 amHow are we supposed to beat Godfall Superman (final battle) on Expert difficulty? It's a regeneration challenge where he regenerates faster than anything I throw at him...
Capt. Eliza CreststeelDecember 31, 2014, 12:46 pmContributor- Oy I wish I had seen this sooner. I got by combining Killing Joke Joker, Raven and Doomsday. When KJJ dies he powers up the others. When Ravens low she steals Supes health. Then tag in Doomsday and BLAM - Earthshake.
