Superman

Injustice superman small.png

Rocketed to Earth from the dying planet Krypton, baby Kal-El was found by a farming couple who named the boy Clark Kent and raised him as their own. Discovering his enormous powers, they instilled in him strong moral values—and inspired him to become a hero.

Superman has super-everything—strength, speed, flight, invulnerability as well as his renowned X-ray and heat vision. The most powerful being on the planet, his amazing abilities are also a melancholy reminder of how different he is from the people he’s dedicated to protect.

In a nutshell
Generally considered one of the best, if not the best, characters in the game. His keepaway is unmatched, his freeze breath is fantastic for combos, he does a lot of damage, has an air dash, completely destroys any "big character" that relies on armor, and is an overall easy to use character.
