Supervillains are getting their due in Injustice 2.

A new “It’s Good to Be Bad” trailer showcases four frightful members of the upcoming fighting game’s cast: Gorilla Grodd, Bane, Scarecrow, and Captain Cold:

Though Grodd and Bane were revealed in previous announcements, Captain Cold and Scarecrow are new to Injustice 2.

Captain Cold (née Leonard Snart) dates back to 1957. The Flash nemesis doesn’t possess any innate special abilities, instead relying on a multitude of icy weapons and gadgets to slow down his arch-rival. The trailer shows off a few different moves and combos that utilize his Cold Gun, including an ice wall and an awesome ice slide Super Power.

Scarecrow appeared as a background character in the original Injustice, but is fully playable in the sequel. Batman’s foil looks pretty gruesome, hooking enemies with a chain scythe and barfing his fear toxin all over their poor faces. Interestingly, Fredde Krueger himself, actor Robert Englund, voices the villain.

The reveal brings the total number of known playable characters to 27 (28 if you include pre-order bonus character Darkseid). Check out the full roster at our Injustice 2 character gallery.

Injustice 2 is due out May 16 for the Xbox One and PS4.

Ben was a big fan of Grodd whenever he appeared in the Super Friends cartoon. Make fun of him on Twitter @ben_silverman.
