Months ago, Netherrealm released a trailer for their upcoming fighting game, Injustice 2 that revealed that the main villain for the game would be Brainiac, the mechanical supervillain of Superman. Today, they released a new trailer as part of their Shattered Alliances series, and this guy is definitely taking no prisoners.
Brainiac is the Collector of Worlds, and once he’s done with them, he gets rid of what’s left. (As this trailer shows us, the Injustice version of Brainiac was directly responsible for the destruction of Superman’s homeworld, Krypton.) That’s naturally not a good thing for Earth, but luckily, they’ve got a whole bevy of superheroes on the planet to deal with a threat of this magnitude. But while they can more than handle him on a physical level, this guy’s a much smarter villain than what they’re used to, and his technology is beyond their limits.
Will our heroes and villains triumph against Brainiac? We won’t know until Injustice 2 lands on the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
