Shazam! Confirmed for Injustice: Gods Among Us

The “Injustice Battle Arena” continues this week, pitting characters from the upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us with the victor chosen by the fans, and the latest video revealed a new character for the game, Shazam! Created in 1939, the character originated as Captain Marvel and has since changed monikers based on his signature catch phrase. Shazam’s powers include the Wisdom of Solomon,  the Strength of Hercules,  the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles and the Speed of Mercury.

“Gods Among Us” debuts as a bold new fighting game franchise that introduces a deep, original story featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons such as Batman, Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Deathstroke, Solomon Grundy, Superman, Lex Luthor, The Flash, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Bane, Catwoman, the Joker, and more. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale.
 
The game will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on April 16 in North America and April 19 in Europe.
