Hellboy is being added as DLC to Injustice 2.

He's... not high on the list of characters I'd presume to show up in that.

Is it weird that I'm disappointed in the announcement? I like Hellboy, and he'll probably be a good fit for the "universe", but this is a DC fighting game, and I'd kinda like to see more DC characters. I want to say I can play as Raiden in other fighting games (even another fighting game where he can fight DC characters), and there are no shortage of "electric powers" DC dudes. And our new DC rep is... Black Manta? The guy whose superpower is "owns a boat"? Exciting.

To be fair; they already had a DC Electric Guy in this (though hes a character not known for his electricity), and CYBER-PIRATE is a more compelling character to include than the guy whose superpower is "Has a Gun"

It's kind of the MO of fighting games right now, though. Tekken 7 giving top billing to Akuma, and now pulling in Geese from Art of Fighting too.

Fatal Fury, actually...though Young Geese is a boss in Art of Fighting 2.

Worst part about that is EVERYONE WANTS STATIC SHOCK, but when the 9 DLC character poster came out (Pack 1 was shown, packs 2 & 3 were silhouettes in the back), people were mad about Raiden being in there, but then the Raiden silhouette was mysteriously edited to look like someone else, but we now know it was for nothing.

I knew that was where he started, but its been so long that I thought the sliding door thing was from AoF. Looking at Youtube its there in FF, so my brain is just messed up right now I guess.

Though Akuma is still the most useless assassin ever.

Apparently there was a DLC pack released for Ultra Street Fighter IV about two years ago that I wasn't aware of; and it's Halloween based; so you can fight with Frankensteins and Draculas and spooky ghosts and the like.

Except Cammy.

Cammy dresses like a sexy bee. Like from (sexy) nature.

It's not a Darkstalkers reference either; doesn't look close to Q. Bee.

Maybe someone at Capcom is allergic?

Her codename is Killerbee if I recall right. At the very least one of her supers is Killerbee Assault in MVC2.

They're not all winners. Apparently Dhalsim's horror skin is an... action figure? Like, with ball joints and things? I may be alone in this but I've never been particularly horrified by an action figure, even despite Todd MacFarlane's best efforts.

And, to be fair, every horror skin pales before Undertaker Zangief.

Oh yeah, that tracks. Makes it kind of odd that Vega is the one whose fursona costume was a bumblebee though.

And while I generally like everything Dan does, I especially love his SPOOKY Costume

Putting Dan in the sort of Halloween costume a six-year-old would wear is shockingly apropos.

You know, with so many different Indie-dev Smash clones all in development at the same time, you would think that someone would have mentioned that their character is showing up in like three or four different party brawlers to people shopping around for character cameos by now...

At least this one looks to have a unique spin on it. Also it has Shovel Knight signed on, which I'm not sure if any of the others did.

I also just noticed a Rivals of Aether character in there, so we are getting into Smash-ception territory now.
