'Infinite Crisis' Character Roster Expands With Supergirl In July, First Female Bruiser Comes With 'Solar Furnace', 'Worldbreaker' Abilities [VIDEO]
Infinite Crisis is already up to over thirty characters as it is, but the count will jump by one July 2, because that's when Turbine is bringing Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El over to the game. You might know her better as Supergirl.
The developer is offering gamers an early look at the new champion. A news update on the official site provided a bit of background:
"Like her cousin Superman, Kara Zor-El survived the destruction of Krypton by escaping in a spacecraft of her father's design. Placed into a state of suspended animation, Kara's craft followed the course set by her then-infant cousin. But instead of Kara's trip taking a matter of seconds, like it had for her cousin, it took decades. When she crash-landed on Earth, Kara awoke to her powers immediately manifesting. While wrestling with these powers, she was astonished to meet her cousin, now a grown man. The worst shock, though, came last when Kal-El told her they were the only survivors of Krypton. Overwhelmed by despair, feeling anger toward the alien world where she felt trapped, Kara discovered a resilience she didn't know she possessed. She now deals with her grief while discovering a love of her new home world, Earth. Fast, strong, and always willing to pick a fight, Supergirl is a bruiser who loves getting up-close and personal."
Here are some of the agile bruiser's abilities:
* Solar Furnace - every basic attack adds to a stack. when the stack hits the max of 4, basic attacks get bonus damage, and the worldbreaker skill
* Worldbreaker - gives next basic attack additional attack damage, and will strike enemies in a cone behind her target.
* Bounding Strike - sends Supergirl dashing towards a target, moving through drones to deal attack damage. Ends at first jungle creature or enemy champion hit.
* Determination - boosts attack armor and move speed. While active, next four basic attacks will reduce cooldown of Worldbreaker and Bounding Strike
* Comet - Supergirl grabs her target and dashes forward, dealing Attack damage and knocking her target down. Enemies caught in path are knocked up.
