The game's first DLC character, available in June as part of the Fighter Pack 1, Red Hood comes armed with a sharp tongue -- "So, desperate for approval?" he asks a taunting Damian Wayne -- and enough weapons to equip a small army. In the gameplay footage, we can see his signature twin pistols, a knife, grenades and possible some version of a Batarang, but that's only for starters.

Jason Todd once served as Batman’s second protégé "Robin" before being brutally murdered by The Joker. Years later, the powerful healing waters of the Lazarus Pit brought Jason Todd back to life. However the power of the pit comes at a cost, and a change takes hold in Jason. He now uses mantle of the Red Hood to wage a lethal war on crime.

Developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by WB Games, the sequel to the hit 2013 fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us allows players to build and power up the ultimate versions of their favorite DC Comics characters. The story centers on attempts by Batman and his insurgency to restore society after the fall of Superman's regime. However, the arrivals of the supervillain group The Society and the alien Brainiac force the Dark Knight to consider freeing the imprisoned Superman to help combat these new threats.

Injustice 2 is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
