The Flash Speeds into Injustice 2

Clear the runway because the Flash is ready to race into Injustice 2.

The Flash, one of the mainstays in the DC Universe, has been missing from action in Injustice 2. He’s popped up every now and again in a few trailers, but we’ve never gotten a chance to see him up close and personal. That all ends today thanks to a new trailer that focuses exclusively on Flash.

Barry Allen returns as Flash in Injustice 2, still haunted by the events of Injustice: Gods Among Us. Though he defected to Batman’s Insurgency, Barry still feels bad about the acts he committed in the name of the Regime. However, as a new threat arises, Flash returns to battle hoping to redeem himself. Like all returning characters in Injustice 2, Flash plays similarly to how he did in Injustice: Gods Among Us, albeit with some flashy new moves. In particular, his new supermove looks pretty sweet.

Injustice 2 is out May 16 on PS4 and Xbox One. So far, a total of 27 playable characters have been revealed (28 if you count the DLC pre-order bonus, Darkseid).
