Last week, NetherRealm Studios promised to reveal a new character for Injustice 2 on March 2nd. Today we have learned that Golden Age comic book superhero, Doctor Fate, will officially be joining the ranks as the 21st confirmed character.
According to comic lore, Doctor Fate has been a title that has been bestowed to a multitude of a different characters of the years. Doctor Fate is a powerful magic user that has a variety of ranged magical attacks at his disposal.
In this new trailer, we get to see Doctor Fate’s magic-based moveset in action against Superman, Cyborg, and Atrocitus, even including his elaborate super move, which has him transport his opponent to another dimension for a brutal beatdown.
Considering his immense power, it’s very likely that Doctor Fate will play a key role in the storyline for Injustice 2. This makes sense as he has often been depicted as an especially powerful character in the DC universe.
Injustice 2 will release on May 16th for PS4 and Xbox One. The mobile version of the game is now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
