NetherRealm Studios' Injustice 2 finally steps into the marketing ring this month with a rambunctious roster of superheroes and villains set to punish and pummel each other in brutal hand-to-hand combat. Joining the lengthy list of reveal trailers and story previews over the past few months, here's a trio of new reveal trailers showcasing the combat expertise of Brainiac, Darkseid and Batman's most notorious nemesis, The Joker.

Watch Darkseid emerge from the fiery depths of Apokolips and blast Brainiac with his crimson Omega Beams, while the leering Joker gives Robin an electrifying beating while wearing a demented smile on his face, then see the Man of Steel incapacitated by a salvo of Brainiac's red sun torpedoes and robotic tentacles.

A being of pure hate incarnate, the lord of Apokolips Darkseid demands the total subjugation of all existence. His merciless obsession has left a wake of suffering and obliteration as he seeks the Anti-Life Equation. With his invincible body, limitless strength, army of Parademons, and the annihilating power of his Omega Beams make him not only a threat to this world, but to every world within reach.

Though killed by Superman, the Joker continues to haunt the lives of all those touched by his madness. By destroying Metropolis, he set the events in motion which made enemies of Superman and Batman. If he were alive to see the chaos he’d created, he would surely be smiling.

Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought.

Injustice 2 tosses down the gauntlets for a May 16 showdown on PS4, Xbox One and PC..
