“Injustice 2” keeps a lot of fans waiting in anticipation. The game’s release is nearing and more information seems to find its way to the gamers. This time it considers the latest confirmed characters, his name is Firestarter and he is ready to burn all foes.

WWG shares that Firestorm is the newest confirmed character in “Injustice 2”. This brings about the character roster to 25 confirmed names and more coming soon. From the video released, Firestarter seems to be a character with predominantly ranged attacks. He has a few moves from up close, but keeps his distance at the end of the screen and still manages to deliver some hot action to the game. His finisher move is impressive, where the enemy is dragged in a circle of fire, has meteors fly into him and then perishes in a mini-nuke explosion.

GameRant shares additional information on who Firestorm is. He is a powerful character of DC’s comic book universe. He has had a few incarnations and reworks, but in general, he has superhuman strength, ability to fly, manipulate particles and shoot out fire. He has reached a spike in popularity thanks to his appearances in CW’s TV shows based on the DC universe. He has appeared in “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow”. This has brought about thought of possible skins and costumes based on his appearances in the series.

For those who like to do their homework, the DC Wikia has shared some interesting information on the character of firestorm, his appearances in important DC events like “Identity Crisis” and “Blackest Night” and all the people who have bared the title of Firestorm, which can be quite confusing for people not familiar with comic book continuity, as the character is a matrix of consciousness, taking control over the powers when they are needed. Since the original Firestorm’s death, many have joined the matrix and with his revival during the “Blackest Night”, he has once again joined up forces with the rest of the consciousness in the mind matrix. “Injustice 2” will be released on May 16, 2017 for PS 4 and XBOX One.
