Bane and Lex Luthor join Injustice: Gods Among Us

The latest issue of Game Informer has unveiled two new combatants joining the roster of Injustice: Gods Among Us — Bane and Lex Luthor.

Bane’s Bio-

True to his hulking form, Bane is a power character and a master of grappling who uses wrestling-inspired moves without a projectile in sight. The Batman villain’s character trait is to pump venom through his body. When triggered, it amps up his power and makes him even more dangerous.

Lex Luthor’s Bio-

Superman’s nemesis is not only key to the story mode, but he’s also a heavy-duty fighter, thanks to his armored suit. Luthor relies on gadget-based attacks, and can launch missiles and suck foes towards him. His special trait is a shield that can be powered up by holding a button.

With the two newest additions the roster count is up to 15, with Bane and Lex joining recent additions Deathstroke, Green Arrow, Joker and Green Lantern.
