As of now, 14 characters from the DC universe have been announced for the game’s roster: Batman, Nightmare Batman, Gaslight Batman, Joker, Gaslight Joker, Doomsday, Flash, Gaslight Catwoman, Green Lantern, Poison Ivy, Wonder Woman, Shazam, Cyborg, and Zatanna. Turbine said it plans on rolling out multiple variations of each character, spanning the DC multiverse. The "normal" versions of each character are based on the character designs from DC's "New 52" comic lineup.
Though we only got a chance to test drive one of the champions (Nightmare Batman, because Batman in vampire form is awesome), we had a fierce encounter with his Gaslight counterpart. Both Nightmare and Gaslight Batman are carry characters, meaning they deal insane amounts of damage. Whereas our Nightmare version relied on lifesteal abilities, attack speed buffs, and predominantly melee skills, Gaslight Batman did most of his damage from afar. For the record, we won that 1v1, and our end-of-match KDR sat at a healthy 15-3. Yep, Nightmare Batman rules.
