STARK RAVEN MAD: Injustice: Gods Among Us Adds A Spooky New Teen Titan

Sure Superman was going to be in. Harley Quinn. Wonder Woman. All pretty much easy picks for the playable line-up of video game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Now we get to the really sweet end where a few B-listers get called in. Not B-listers in terms of cool or concept, just not as front row for licensing as that creature of the knight that had the bright yellow oval on his chest. Want proof? Here's Raven.

While this incarnation of The New Teen Titan plays more on her supernatural daughter/daddy relationship with Trigon, than as the gentle empath creators George Perez and Marv Wolfman initially played her as it's still pretty wicked seeing her soul self - take flight. Trigon himself also appears, but that doesn't mean her adversary in the below vid Catwoman, isn't going to get her licks first.

Injustice: Gods Among Us hits all major consoles from April 16.

 What do you think? 


  1. It's nice to see Raven getting her props as a big power wielder. On a gaming front, even! Never thought I'd see that, because she isn't one of the bigger names out there. I think more kids know who Cyborg is.
    That was one of the reasons Raven HAD to be gentle, though. Why the followers of Azar bread emotional control into the Empath. Because they knew, if she ever, ever, EVER, lost control, daddy dearest was just waiting to pounce. And they weren't sure she wouldn't go running right to him. Because let's face it, it had to be easier than trying to feel nothing while absorbing everyone's pain. And anger. And everything else. Geez, I loved that plotline. It really creeped me out. Ever want to be really disturbed, be a thirteen year old girl, at midnight, reading your favorite heroes being twisted, from their souls to their bodies on a spiral made out of human flesh. Dude. Wolfman and Perez rocked.
    So does Raven. I might actually rent this one. See if it's any good. Unlike almost every other DC game except for those Arkham ones.

  2. umm. *Bred. Not *Bread. Sorry.

  3. I still remember the first pages of one issue of Titans where Raven wondering alone stumbles across a town where the folk learn of her abilities and just want to touch her to drain their ills away as she tries to flee. Memories stick with you reading good comics, I tell ya!
