We recently learned Mortal Kombat veteran Raiden would be joining Injustice 2, and not everybody was happy about it. A lot of people would have rather had another DC Comics character, like the lightning-themed Static Shock, instead of Raiden, which is understandable. That said, this version of Raiden does have a DC connection.
Both Raiden and the previously-released Sub-Zero, have been redesigned for Injustice 2 by superstar artist (and DC Comic co-publisher) Jim Lee. The Sub-Zero redesign was pretty standard, but Lee’s take on Raiden is a little more…out there. You can check out Lee’s concept art, below:
As you can see, the final design has been altered significantly.
Let us know what you think of Lee’s concept compared to the final version. Injustice 2 is currently available on Xbox One and PS4. Fighter Pack 2 will be available for purchase on September 12, with Black Manta becoming available the same day.
