Swamp Thing is one of the stranger characters in DC’s stable of superheroes, but he’s had a surprisingly varied second life in movies, television, and video games. It looks like that legacy will continue this May, as NetherRealm Studios has announced the muck monster will appear as a playable character in Injustice 2.
Swamp Thing is a lumbering brawler, and the gameplay trailer embedded above gives us a glimpse at his superhuman strength. However, the creature also has the ability to teleport in and out of battle, stretch out his arms to grab opponents, and clone himself for double damage. Swamp Thing is the second nature-based character to be announced for Injustice 2, and it’ll be interesting to compare him to Poison Ivy once she’s unveiled.
Injustice 2 will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
