Injustice: Gods Among Us brings Bane and Lex Luthor on to the team

DC Comics-inspired fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us will feature classic villains Bane and Lex Luthor as playable characters, NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon confirmed on Twitter.

The two new characters were revealed in an image from a new issue of @Gamer magazine retweeted by Boon, featuring screenshots of the villains in question.

Bane and Lex Luthor join previously announced characters Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, The Joker, Green Lantern, Deathstroke, Flash and Green Arrow. The title launches April 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Check out our interview with the game's lead designer John Edwards, asking him just how violent is Injustice, really?
