Raiden and Black Lightning coming to Injustice 2 next month

The latest trailer for Injustice 2 gives us a glimpse at two lighting-powered heroes coming next month, the previously announced Raiden from Mortal Kombat and DC’s Black Lighting.

While that statement isn’t entirely true, as Black Lighting is a “premiere skin” for the Thunder-God which comes as part of the Ulitmate Edition. Raiden is the second character from Fighter Pack 2 to be released, the first being the Aquaman villain Black Manta, and the yet to be released Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics.

Fighter Pack 1 released this summer and is priced at $19.99 (USD); Fighter Pack 2 has yet to be priced, but is part of the Ultimate Pack, which is priced at $39.99 and has all the post-release DLC characters as well as several other cosmetic items.

If we’re going to be completely honest, Black Lighting should be the new character while Raiden is thrown as a premiere skin. I think most of us agree that there is enough MK fighters in a non-MK fighting game.
