Injustice 2’s Starfire Shows How Cosmic Fighting Can Get

25 Jul

Injustice 2 is looking a lot more hotter with the unveiling of a new video showing Starfire in action. Within this narrative, this superheroine gets motivated into action by the death of Dick Grayson. She’s questioning the new Robin, and of course, they fight; Starfire shows off deadly energy beams, celestial projectiles and her supernova super in this gameplay trailer.

In the comics, Nightwing (Dick) was totally unprepared in his attempt to “work” the inmmates of Arkham Asylum. In the videogame, well, I have not gotten that far yet to see in order to unlock this character. This trailer shows Starfire avenging the death of Nightwing.
