The Atom, DC’s shrinking scientist, is coming to Injustice 2 this month. It’s Ryan Choi, the character created by Grant Morrison, somewhat than the most likely higher recognized Ray Palmer model. That model is at present being performed by Superman actor Brandon Routh on Legends of Tomorrow, a present that I really like, regardless of understanding it’s unhealthy for my well being. Becoming actually tiny by no means appears like a terrific superpower, however because the trailer under reveals, it’s truly the most effective energy.
Injustice 2 has achieved a reasonably nice job of replicating every character’s powers however I believe it may need peaked with Atom. He can shrink to keep away from assaults, burrow into foes’ heads and bounce all over as a tiny, lethal speck. And clearly all these strikes may be chained collectively in order that he shrinks, dodges an enemy assault, after which scrambles up their physique, battering them along with his adorably tiny fists.
The Atom will likely be free for everybody who owns the final word version of Injustice 2, however you possibly can choose him up on his personal or as a part of the third fighter pack, which is able to embrace Enchantress and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as properly. While we’re on the topic, there’s a trailer for that too.
The Atom is due out on December 12 on consoles, however we’ll have to attend a bit longer. Indeed, the final fighter from the second pack nonetheless hasn’t appeared. That’s Hellboy, and according to the devs, he received’t be prepared for one more couple of weeks. The Atom will comply with quickly after.
