NetherRealm promised last week that they would be revealing another character to the ever growing list of heroes/villains in the upcoming fighting title, Injustice 2. Well, they finally came through with it and have officially announced Swamp Thing.
The reveal comes from IGN First, where NetherRealm has provided a quick presentation on how the new character fights. Check out the Swamp Thing down below:
Swamp Thing uses the nature around him has an ability. As you can see from the reveal trailer above, Swamp Thing can form branches, sink into the ground, and use the earth around him to take advantage of his adversary.
For those who are unfamiliar with the character, here is a brief overview of Swamp Thing; check it out down below:
Alec Holland was an idealistic scientist who was synthesizing a top-secret chemical in his hidden lab in the marshlands. But after a bomb in his office explodes, the young scientist is murdered. Or so it seems. Because rising in his place is the Swamp Thing, a creature made of vegetation that’s absorbed Alec Holland’s memories, personality—and grief.
The monstrous Swamp Thing can control every iota of plant life on this planet, from the fungus on stale bread to forests of towering oaks. Superhumanly strong and grotesque, he can grow himself a full array of titanic bodies from even the tiniest sprout of green. A living embodiment of the power and terror in our environment, the Swamp Thing protects both humanity and the environment—usually from each other.
Injustice 2 is set to release for PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
