Firestorm, Captain Cold, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow and Black Atom confirmed to be in Injustice 2. Scarecrow was already rumored to be added to the character roster, but characters like Poison Ivy and Captain cold were a surprise. Fans predicted either Captain Cold from the Flash universe or Mr. Freeze from Batman universe. Seeing how Batman villains are dominating the character slots of this game already, it is understandable why they choose Captain Cold. Both characters would play virtually identical anyway because of their similar abilities.
Poison Ivy being confirmed was a complete surprise to me. The character Swamp Thing was already announced and I thought that Netherealm wouldn’t spend time on making 2 characters with similar powers and abilities. Poison Ivy and Swamp Thing were shown to have similar abilities, but very different play styles. Poison Ivy is faster while Swamp Thing is slower but more powerful. I hope that Netherealm studios differentiates these two similar character beyond speed and power, but they have done a good job making the similar character Superman and Super girl play completely different.
