Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm's Injustice 2 is ready to jump the ring ropes and erupt into a full-bore battle royale and its forceful waves of character reveal trailers have given us a powerful peek into the arena of this crazy combat game. It seems everyone is being tossed into the battlezone, and this new attack trailer focuses on the heated rivalry between Supergirl and her cousin, Superman, and also introduces Black Adam as a playable character.

Check out this new chapter in the game's Shattered Alliances backstory, and tell us if you'll be fit to fight this spring. The first two Shattered Alliances videos are also there, just to get you up to super-speed!

First, retreat to your corner and study up on the official synopsis:

The latest DC fighting game experience expands on the previous title's larger-than-life showdowns. Every battle defines you in a game where players personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.

Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman's regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth's existence at risk. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd and Deadshot. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.

Injustice 2 strikes Xbox One, Playstation 4, and mobile devices on May 16.
