‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Pre-Order DLC: ‘Red Son’ Superman Footage

Red Son Superman Footage Injustice

Gamers and DC fans alike looking to get their Justice League fix needn’t look any further than NetherRealm StudiosInjustice: Gods Among Us, a brutal brawler featuring heroes and villains from the DC universe. All the expected characters, with a few exceptions, are slated to make an appearance, from Superman to Catwoman.

However there’s a new pre-order bonus from GameStop that promises to take a select few of these familiar faces and bring some slightly obscure touches to their design, namely their costumes. More specifically, there is a character skins pack that has ties to the ‘Red Son’ storyline and will provide new costumes for Superman, Wonder Woman, and Solomon Grundy.

These are merely character skins, mind you; they do not fundamentally change the move sets of Superman, Wonder Woman, or Solomon Grundy. What the pre-order DLC does offer, however, is an additional 20 missions that follow the ‘Red Son’ storyline as written by acclaimed comic book scribe Mark Millar.

In the three-issue arc, Millar envisions a world where Kal-El, the last son of Krypton, lands in Soviet Russia not rural Kansas, and is raised to fight for Socialism and Stalin. Instead of a big red ‘S’ on his chest, he bares a hammer and sickle. And most evidently his colors are red and black, not red and blue.

How exactly these 20 missions will play out is unclear — the game’s entire story set-up is still being kept mostly under wraps — but we do have some footage of two costumed heroes, and one villain, in action to give a brief taste of what these new costumes look like. Unfortunately, the footage is recorded off a GameStop screen with what we assume is a camera phone.

Nevertheless, we have the pre-order flyer (featured below) to accurately represent what is being offered. Thankfully gamers have quite a while to feel out all the pre-order offers as the game was just given an April 16th release date.
