Raiden is coming to Injustice 2, and his super is looking cool as hell.

The God of Thunder might not be a member of the DC Universe, but then only one character in Fighter Pack 2 actually is. In this trailer he beats down on the heroes and villains that make up the game’s cast, shooting lighting all over the place (as one might expect).

The trailer also shows off Raiden’s ‘premiere skin’, Black Lightning. While Black Lightning will share all of Raiden’s moves, he’ll have unique dialog and, of course, look completely different. You’ll need the Ultimate Edition or Ultimate Pack to access this skin, by the look of things. It’s unclear how Black Lightning’s super will differ, but surely it must, since Raiden’s version involves the iconic Mortal Kombat dragon from the logo.

Speaking of which, how about that super, hey? Raiden shocks his enemy and flies them into the sky, where a damn dragon appears on the moon and grabs them in its jaws. Beautiful!

Raiden will release in October for anyone who has purchased the Fighter Pack 2 or Ultimate Pack DLC. Black Manta is available today if you grabbed the Fighter Pack, while Ultimate owners have already had him for a few days.

Meanwhile, we can’t wait to hear more about how Hellboy will play…
