So it’s a little weird that Netherrealm is calling out Batgirl’s post-“Killing Joke” history in this trailer, announcing the character’s inclusion in “Injustice: Gods Among Us” as DLC. I mean, I guess it gives her a clear rivalry with the Joker (who’s wearing his “crippling Barbara Gordon” outfit in the video) but it seems like a lot of extraneous backstory to explain away a lot of stuff that was kind of weird in DC’s New 52 (which restored the long-disabled Gordon/Batgirl’s ability to walk and waved away her Oracle persona).
Anyway, she’s officially official, joining Lobo as a separate 400 MS Point/$4.99 download for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
You can check out the trailer after the jump.
