** The gameplay footage seen so far indicates that the sole Superman playable in the game is the [[KnightTemplar Regime]] [[FallenHero one]]. Superman fans already tired of the done-to-death ''Evil Superman'' trope aren't very happy with that while some players find the more aggressive Kal-El an interesting character.

Added DiffLines:

** Anytime Green Lantern refers to himself as Green Lantern, whilst wearing a shader that puts him in the color scheme of another Corps.

** Bruce Wayne secretly creation [[spoiler:Brother Eye. In the comics, Brother Eye was a Big Brother style surveillance system, and was one of the contributing factors that lead up to Infinite Crisis in the mainstream comics. While it was only depicted as an early threat response system in Injustice 2, neither the fact that Bruce built it in secret nor the potential consequences of Brainiac hijacking it early in the game are explored.]]
** Given how dedicated Eobard Thawne is to hurting Barry Allen any way he can, he could have easily taunted him maliciously about joining the Regime and not having the courage to stand up and fight back against Superman until he killed Shazam. But instead, he's more frustrated about how the Regime killed one of his ancestors, trapping him in a TimeParadox so that he can't go back to his timeline - an idea taken from [[Series/TheFlash2014 The Flash's TV show]], as in the comics Eobard never cared about returning to the future and just wanted to torment Barry.
** Superman's fight intro shows him effortlessly breaking out of hand cuffs that with ''kryptonite in them.'' And the CliffHanger from the last game and a scene in ''this'' game proper show him almost emitting his heat vision under a red sun prison. [[spoiler: Nothing comes of either of these. And he still loses his powers to Gold Kryptonite in Batman's ending.]]

** Atrocitus and Superman not interacting during the story despite being perfect {{Foil}}s. Both of them lost people they loved to the Sinestro Corps or the Joker. Superman could see how his craving through for vengeance could destroy him. Instead, Atrocitus shows up as a GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: From particular fans of them, there have been complaints of Netherrealm's {{Retcon}}s altering events either shown or hinted at in both the original game and the highly well-received comic series, by way fleshing out the early days of Superman's StartOfDarkness in ways that those fans did not agree with.



* TierInducedScrappy: At launch, Deadshot is considered the best zoner (and possibly best character hands down) in the game, with gunshots that shoot and recover very quickly, making it almost impossible to approach without the very tedious "walk forward and crouch" technique. Don't even think of jumping because his ground bounce shot easily knocks opponents off the air. Once opponents get close, Deadshot still has easy and damaging combos that can knock opponents far away from him, resetting the zoning game. In addition, Deadshot is derided for making the game boring to watch, as his zoning consists of only gunshots; enough that Deadshot detractors actually support other more flashy and "fun" zoners like Captain Cold. (Remember how Deathstroke used to be in the previous game? HereWeGoAgain.)

** The final character of the initial roster to be unveiled was the Joker, which has been divisive in two manners: While he has been met with approval by those that feel a game featuring Batman wouldn't feel complete without his archnemesis, he has been criticized for not [[SpotlightStealingCrossover only saturating the roster with more Batman-related characters]], but his presence also being shoehorned and a waste of a slot on basis that his Injustice counterpart has been long dead and serving a better purpose staying dead as the catalyst for Superman's StartOfDarkness. His design is another contentious point with people derisively arguing he looks "emo" or reminds them of either [[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Jared Leto's incarnation of the character]] which is a whole divisive issue on its own right or Film/LittleNicky; while the ones positively believe he resembles [[Film/TheDarkKnight Heath Ledger's Joker]]. At least this issue has been mitigated by the gear system that allows gamers to customize him in any way they see fit. Not to mention that Creator/MarkHamill [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking did not voice him.]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Harley gets hits hard with this in Issue 7 when the BigBad himself, ''of all people'', rightfully points out her role in Metropolis' destruction helped create the dystopian world that Earth has become. She headbutts him in response and to be fair, he deserved it for threatening her daughter Lucy if Harley did not comply, but it doesn't make his accusations any less true. She then tries to justify her actions by claiming she was expecting Superman to save the day in the end, essentially ''blaming him for failing and creating the mess she and the Joker made in the first place''.

Added DiffLines:

* LesYay: Poison Ivy provides ''loads'' of this in the game, not only with Harley Quinn during parts of the story mode and their fight introductions, but several other female characters - specifically in their clash quotes and the fact she can [[KissOfDeath kiss]] them during combat.

* {{Wangst}}: Much of Robin's expressed anger is derided as this, both in and out of universe.



* TheWoobie: Supergirl, hands down, no argument. In this continuity, Supergirl is forced to watch as Braniac destroys her planet, and then as she is being put in a spaceship, she watches her mother die right in front of her. She then is told to protect Superman, but when she arrives her cousin has gone completely off the deep end. When she learns just how evil he is, she joins reluctantly to stop Brainiac. When Superman is presumed dead, she tells Batman that she was supposed to save him. In the finale, Superman betrays her, and Kara loses absolutely everything in the ending. In Batman's ending, Kara sides with Batman and tells Batman that he should not be sorry for anything. When Superman tells Kara they were family, she is forced to acknowledge that she has lost her only relative. In Superman's ending, she gets imprisoned and is either killed or turned into a mechanical monster by her cousin.
