It has been quite some time since the initial announcement, but Injustice 2 has been steadily moving forward with character reveals, gameplay trailers, and even a beta. Today, Injustice series director and NetherRealm Studios head Ed Boon announced the addition of a popular 80s DC character to the game's already impressive roster.
Although Swamp Thing is often associated with the 80s film directed by Wes Craven, the character actually started life by appearing in a 1970s DC Comics series. While Swamp Thing's popularity waned during the 90s and 2000s, the character has been resurrected from obscurity in the latest Injustice title. As you can see from the clip below, the Swamp Thing is a plant/human hybrid creature that can control vegetation and can convert his body into different shapes and forms.
Injustice 2 will arrive on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 16 and can currently be pre-ordered online or through your local game retailer.
