With the Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena social media campaign rolling out in-game fighting footage and associated character reveals it's easy to lose sight of one of the most important facts associated with the DC Comics fighting game: Lex Luthor is a huge jerk. A new trailer for one of the upcoming game's Collector's Edition offerings (which includes "New 52" costume skins for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, among other things), serves as a not-so-subtle reminder that ol' Lex is as bad as he is bald, and that's saying something. Look at that digital dome! So what's Lex's scheme-y angle in a world where heroes and villains are fighting in the wake of a cataclysmic, Joker-triggered event? You can scope out the new story trailer after the jump to see what you make of his motivation.
Initially, I thought I peeped Robin at about 45 seconds in, but closer inspection indicates that it's just the previously-revealed Shazam. Nightwing's just going to have to tide players over.
Injustice: Gods Among Us arrives in stores and online on April 16.
