|Character||Real Name||Trait||Voice Actor||Description|
|Superman||Kal-El/Clark Kent||Solar Aura||George Newbern||"I just keep thinking... that maybe this has gone too far."
When the Joker killed his wife Lois Lane, Superman went off the deep end and into the abyss, ending up as a supreme dictator over all of Earth, killing every hero and villain who opposed him; years later, he ends up in the Phantom Zone, powerless and still believing in order through the Regime. But with the weakening between worlds occuring at a rapid rate, Superman's promise of returning is about to come true; though his time in the Phantom Zone has given him much to reflect upon the deeds he committed through the Regime, and even he starts to doubt the Regime's true purpose.
|Batman||Bruce Wayne||Bat-Drones||Kevin Conroy||"I've got one power: I never give up!"
Though Brainiac's attack left him heavily pre-occupied and semi-retired, Bruce Wayne's vow to protect the innocent remains strong, as he's been working part-time on developing countermeasures for when Superman inevitably escapes the Phantom Zone; although he's had the Justice League and Brother Eye keep tabs on the metahuman population as well as the second incarnation of the Society, Batman is still unaware of Darkseid's alliance with former world collector Brainiac, though knowing the Dark Knight, it won't be long before he finds out.
|Wonder Woman||Diana Prince||Power of the Gods||Susan Eisenburg||"You can't show mercy to these animals without regretting the consequences later."|
|Green Lantern||Hal Jordan||Ring Power||Steve Blum||"Green Lantern stands his ground."
After his tenure in the Sinestro Corps, Hal Jordan is back with the Green Lanterns and ready to overcome the fears he succumbed to as a Regime member; but several outside influences are making his tenure as the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 a bit more difficult: Atrocitus's Rage is slowly irritating him, his ex Carol is now the Star Sapphire, an Zamaron-loyal emissary of love, and Larfleeze AKA Agent Orange got attracted to Earth's massive stores of treasures. Not to mention that Sinestro's free.
|The Flash||Barry Allen||Speed Zone||Taliesen Jaffe||"Next time, try stretching first!"
Though he retired after his bout with the Regime, Barry Allen was forced to redon the Flash costume after Brainiac invaded, but with Bruce retired and other new heroes in need of training, Barry and Green Lantern Hal Jordan co-lead the Justice League, training heroes like Blue Beetle, Firestorm and more recently Supergirl; he's even mended fences with Leonard Snart, better known as Captain Cold (who's in the League as well), though he remains haunted by the deadly Reverse-Flash.
|Cyborg||Victor Stone||Power of the Mother Box||Khary Payton||"Booyah!!"
A longtime Regime supporter, Cyborg lost more than his friends at the Metropolis attack, he lost his hope as well; his loss of this tempered his loyalty to Superman, and even allowed him to endure Brainiac's invasion as well, though he was rather put off by the birth of Grid, his technical side embodied in a physical form.
Still loyal to the Regime, Cyborg's loyalty may be put to the test - between Starfire's return and Superman's doubts, the Titan may have to make a major decision in where his loyalties lie.
|Hawkgirl||Shiera Hall||Soaring Hawk||Maria Canals||"You wanna take me on?"
No longer brainwashed into serving the Regime, Shiera Hall is out to avenge the death of her husband at the Regime's hands, though she still remains wanted as a Regime enforcer throughout the world; knowing that Kandhaq is a very possible hideout for any leftovers of the Regime, Hawkgirl is determined to punish the Regime members that killed her husband - even if she has to beat them senseless.
|Martian Manhunter||J'onn J'onzz||Martian Malleability||Carl Lumbly||"I couldn't fight for my world, but I will fight for this one."
Though he remained initially opposed to the Regime, and was thought to be dead for a long time, J'onn J'onzz has been hiding out in Atlantis as one of Aquaman's advisors - though that was the plan initially; now he sides with Trent Morrow's Insurgency, hoping to prevent Darkseid from gaining the one thing he's always wanted - universal subjugation.
|Supergirl||Kara Zor-El||Heat Vision||Laura Bailey||"Sounds like a job for Supergirl!"
Though she was too late to save her cousin from going off the deep end, Kara Zor-El proved herself in the fight against Brainiac and the Regime, which eventually culminated when she joined the newly-formed Justice League courtesy of Batman, who gave her a place where she would fit; training herself among the league (with her mentor Harley Quinn and her boyfriend Blue Beetle), she's proven that the symbol she wears can still give hope to those who need it.
|Talon||Damian Wayne||Boy Wonder's Weapons||Scott Porter||"I'm no prodigal son!"
Formerly the 4th Robin after Tim Drake (who went on to become Red Robin, a prominent member of the Teen Titans), Damian fell out with his father after Superman killed Joker, who then himself went on to kill Dick Grayson and assume his Nightwing identity (his father never forgave him for that); now adopting a new costume and new identity as Talon, Damian still fights ardently for the Regime, and continuing to openly defy his father.
But with Superman's doubts of the Regime being the right choice, Damian's gonna have to make decisions if Clark decides to change his mind about the Regime.
|Green Arrow||Oliver Queen||Trick Arrows||Alan Tudyk||"Got an arrow for every occasion!"
Though the Green Arrow of this universe was an early casualty of Superman's Regime, through Doctor Fate's intervention, this Green Arrow came to the Injustice universe as this Black Canary's technical second husband; having lost his own Black Canary so long ago, Oliver Queen is happy to be here - with all the Trick Arrows in his quiver, too.
|Black Canary||Dinah Lance||Canary Cry||Vanessa Marshall||"I don't have a sister, so I wish people would quit asking."|
|Blue Beetle||Jaime Reyes||Beetle Blades||Anthony Del Rio||"My reputation precedes me."|
|The Atom||Ryan Choi||Bio-Belt||Matthew Yang King||"Morrow is a genius, almost like Professor Palmer."|
|Nuclear Force||Ogie Banks (Jason/Fused), Fred Tatasciore (Martin)||"It's weird having a voice in your head but I'm used to it."|
|Star Sapphire||Carol Ferris||Heart of the Predator||Jennifer Hale||"Love is the most powerful emotion."|
|Harley Quinn||Harleen Quinzel||Bud & Lou||Tara Strong||"Ready for some slapstick?"|
|Deadshot||Floyd Lawton||Trick Bullets||Matthew Mercer||"I'm a professional. I can handle it."|
|Red Hood||Jason Todd||Stun Gun-Fu||Cameron Bowen||"Should I kill you? Let's take a vote!"|
|Starfire||Koriand'r||Starblast||Kari Wahlgren||"Princesses shouldn't be killers."
The crown princess of Tamaran exiled to Earth by her bitter older sister, Koriand'r didn't take long to find a new home on Earth with her teammates the (then) Teen Titans: Robin (Dick Grayson), Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Kid Flash (Wally West); along with her friends, she then led the Titans of a newer generation for a while - until the day Joker nuked Metropolis and killed most of the Titans. Now after a term in the Phantom Zone and a brief struggle with the world, Starfire is back - and ready to avenge Dick Grayson's death at the hands of Damian Wayne.
|Catwoman||Selina Kyle||Cat-Scratch||Grey DeLisle||"I'm hoping Bruce will settle down after this."|
Arthur Curry (human)
|Water of Life||Phil LaMarr||"Atlantis isn't going to back down without a fight!"|
|Swamp Thing||Alec Holland||Abigail's Garden||Fred Tatasciore||"It is... good to be back, even as the Swamp Thing."|
|Doctor Fate||Kent Nelson||Nabu's Spellbook||David Sobolov||"This chaos ends now!!!"
After his death onboard Brainiac's Ship, Kent Nelson returns with the Helm of Nabu on his head and the magic of the Lords of Order flowing through him; though his true motives are hidden from them, Fate's duty to order and humanity wrest within him, causing him to seriously consider interfering with Darkseid's plot for universal subjugation.
|Amazo||Trenton Oliver Morrow||Meta Databanks||Quinton Flynn||"I attended all the world's colleges to LEARN, not interact with irresponsible partyers."
Nephew of the infamous Thomas Oscar Morrow, Trenton Morrow inherited his uncle's brains and more, but not his morals; using technical knowledge and the namesake android taken from Professor Ivo, he used Amazo's memory banks to create power-granting nanites that would give him the powers (and weaknesses) of almost all the Justice League. Forming his own team to stop the "coming storm", Trent's motives remain clouded to all factions, except his own.
|Captain Cold||Leonard Snart||Cyclotron Charge||C. Thomas Howell||"I'm less frozen now."
Being used for Grodd's Society of supervillains that was really the pawns of Brainiac put Leonard Snart on a path he never anticipated; after being used and completing a couple of heists of his own volition, Captain Cold kept getting haunted by how easily he was duped into serving an alien destroyer and how crime basically caused all of his problems: the Joker, the Regime, his sister's death, and Brainiac. A period of soul-searching later, Captain Cold changed career paths and started fighting crime in the Central-Keystone area instead of commiting it; burying the hatchet with Flash and the new Justice League, Cold has now found the true way to honor his sister's memory - by making sure the Regime and Brainiac never happen again.
|Duck Dodgers (DLC)||Duck Edgar Dumas Aloysius Dodgers||Eager Young Space Cadet||Joe Alaskey||"Duck Dodgers in the 24th-and-a-half Century!!"
A general from a somewhat old-timey future, Duck Dodgers is not too bright of a hero or too brave - or too heroic either; really, even though he told stories of his heroics in the 21st century, he was really just a waterboy for a football team.
Now he's fighting the Martian Army of the 24th (and a half) century, determined to keep the peace in a future he knows needs it.
|Tremor (DLC)||Unknown||Geokinetic Force||Fred Tatasciore||"You incurred the Earth's wrath, now brace for the aftershock!"
A former member of the cutthroat Black Dragon orginization, Tremor once loyally served Kano and his group until the one-eyed scumbag sent him on a suicide mission into the Dreamrealm, where Tremor's own geokinetic power quickly and exponentially soared to have him control lava, crystals and even metal; and his change even affected his mind: his resentment for Kano and boredom with crime were also increased, causing him to leave the Black Dragon and align with the White Lotus members. In Darkseid and the New Insurgency, Tremor sees a chance capable of proving him a hero - and potential redemption in his own realm.
|General Zod||Dru-Zod||Phantom Wraith||Nolan North||"I'm glad to see Kal-El now understands how to save a world."|
|Black Manta||David Hyde||Aqua Jetpack||Ogie Banks||"I know this - today, the Atlanteans die!"|
|The Judge (DLC)||Harvey Dent||Scales of Gotham||Troy Baker||"GUILTY!!!"
In the first year of the Regime, two-faced criminal Harvey Dent held a film crew hostage before being confronted by Superman, who destroyed his precious coin and locked him up, leaving Dent in even more pieces than when Vincent Maroni threw acid in his face; when Harvey picked up the pieces and put himself back together, he found himself a new man: the violence and darkness of Two-Face mixed with the judicial dedication of Harvey Dent to make a new personality from the ground up, one that believed that Batman had failed Gotham and that criminal blood was the only thing that would clean Gotham of evil. With his scales, Steel's hammer and Azrael's Sword, The Judge is set to slaughter all who commit crimes against Gotham's people, even Superman.
|The Joker||Unknown||Dead Man's Hand||Richard Epcar||"HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!"|
|Larfleeze||Larfleeze||Vicious Avaricious||Dee Bradley Baker||"Get away! That's mine! It's ALL MINE!!"|
|Bane||Unknown||Venom Boost||J.B. Blanc||"I have only known Venom's benefits myself."|
|Lex Luthor||Alexander Joseph Luthor||LexCorp Shield||Mark Rolston||"Things change, but I never did."
In this universe, Lex Luthor never slipped into a life of crime, instead using his billions to protect the secret identities of the Justice League, only to end up losing his life in the fight against the Regime. Back from the dead courtesy of a reality-altering wave, he aids Amazo's faction in preventing a "coming storm" that could destroy reality.
|Darkseid||Uxas||Gateway to Apokolips||Michael Leon Wooley||"The streets will run red with the blood of billions."
The dread lord of Apokolips who rules the demonic world with an iron fist, Darkseid's intentions of seizing the Anti-Life Equation for himself have taken a backseat in recent years, with his focus shifting to taking vengeance on Superman for killing his son Kalibak and destroying his invasion force; with the help of his Molders (with Brainiac unwillingly aiding them), he'll achieve his mission of vengeance, in ways that could shake up reality to unprecedented proportions.
|Atrocitus||Atros||Dex-Starr||Ike Amadi||"Darksied and his minions will know the wrath of the Red Lanterns!"|
|Scarecrow||Jonathan Crane||Inner Fear||Robert Englund||"Fear is what drives everything."|
|Black Adam||Teth-Adam||Orbs of Seth||Joey Naber||"You'd fight six gods, not one man."|
|Cheetah||Barbara Ann Minerva||Claws of Death||Erica Luttrell||"I'll make quick work of this hunt!"|
|Poison Ivy||Pamela Isley||Night Shade||Tasia Valenza||"No matter the odds, nature always wins."|
|Sinestro||Thaal Sinestro||Become Your Fears||Troy Baker||"You could never trust a Guardian, defected or not."|
|Brainiac||Vril Dox||Beta Strike||Jeffery Combs||"Is this what one of the greatest minds in the universe has been reduced to?"
After he was defeated by Earth's heroes during his attempted collection of Earth, a lot of Brainiac's actions were undone: he was cut off from his betas and the Skull Ship, his collection fell into the hands of Batman's Justice League, and most of the cities (counting all of Earth's collected cities) in his collection were restored across the galaxy; but things quickly went from bad to worse for Vril Dox of Colu, as in the conflict between Superman and Batman, Darkseid quickly took him captive and used his biomechanical abilities to make his own Parademons stronger.
Now he unwillingly serves Darkseid for the Dread Lord's own nefarious purposes, though he secretly wishes to regain control of his ship.

|Owlman||Thomas Wayne, Jr.||Batman||Talons||Diedrich Baker||"Owls eat Bats, little brother."|
|Grid||None||Cyborg||Nano Circuit||Khary Payton||"I will do ANYTHING to feel something."
For years, Grid existed as a subsystem within Cyborg's programming, nothing more than an anomaly within his programming; at least, he was until Cyborg got affected by Brainiac's interferance and separated Grid completely from Cyborg's physical form. Now Grid seeks one thing: human emotion, to "complete" his evolution; and he sides with the Crime Syndicate to acheive it.
|Black Siren||Dinah Drake||Black Canary||Siren's Note||Tricia Helfer||"Would you rather me have sing Ricoletto?"
The devil-may-care counterpart of Black Canary, Dinah Drake of Earth-3 had her metagene scream with her for a while, but she kept it a secret from her billionare husband until she murdered him and took his fortune to live a life of a carefree biker, until Ultraman forced her into the Syndicate by putting an explosive choker on her and took the freedom she so loved; while she does enjoy beating people to a pulp, she doesn't enjoy doing it against her will.

||Preserve Justice and Protect the Weak||After Superman was banished the Phantom Zone alongside Brainiac, Batman was asked to retire from crimefighting to head up the relief effort for Brainiac's attacks on the world, leaving the newer generation of heroes with Flash and Green Lantern to act as mentors; though the new Justice League welcomes new recruits no problem, they have their hands full with the Regime's remnants, the Society and other minor problems (like the New Insurgency, and various romantic entanglements).|
||Restore complete dictatorial control of Earth.||
Set up the first year Superman killed the Joker, the One-Earth Regime had a major agenda: stop all crime before it happened, by any means necessary; but like Batman said, "[they] couldn't see that [their] good intentions were leading them down a path of tyranny and evil." There were many willing (like Black Adam, Wonder Woman and Sinestro) and unwilling members (like reconditioned supervillains such as Bane, or oppressed heroes like Shazam) to the Regime, but after an alternate Justice League (and Joker) helped the Insurgency overthrow the oppressive dictatorship, the Regime's remnants haven't had much luck re-establishing the Regime; Superman got beamed into the Phantom Zone, and even former ally Aquaman turned against them.
But even though the Regime's remnants still hold strong beliefs, Superman's doubts might just spell the end for the oppressive government.

A system of customizing fighters introduced in Injustice 2, the Gear System was a way players could customize their fighters in ways the whole world could see, whether that be through the numerous patterns and stat changes equipped gear brought on or brand-new attacks via abilities; Gear (aside from abilities) changed the appearance of the character by equipping it with different visual aspects that are often accompanied by stat boosts and on occasion side augments, some that work only in the Multiverse.
The gear in Injustice 2 came in 4 levels of rarity:
- Common: The most common variation. Changes in appearance are minor, stat boosts are minimal, and side augments typically don't appear.
- Rare: Slighty better than Common. Changes in appearance are noticable but not typically major, stat boosts are moderate and side augments appear more often.
- Epic: Best possible variation. Changes in appearance are often drastic, stat boosts are large, and side augments are commonplace for this rarity. Can sometimes be in gear sets which give added bonuses for how many pieces are equipped.
- Legendary: Gear level that only can be acquired through Legendary Multiverses; typically has a unique appearance and augment that can make a fighter far more powerful than before. Has a powerful all-around stat boost, a side augment that is normally obtained through Gear Set, and an augment that ups the fighter's power by a large degree, typically through adding a latent ability, extra attack, or augmenting the character power.
These levels of gear all return in Injustice 3, with some significant changes.
- Common and Rare gear pieces can now come in sets, with Common Gear sets being in 2 piece sets, and Rare Gear sets having 2 to 3 pieces.
- Common, Rare and Epic Gear can now be used in Gear Enhancement processes, in which a piece of gear can be infused with a side augment of another gear, but destroys the gear that previously held the augment in the process.
- A new level of gear is Mythical, a white-colored gear piece that's a new level of gear in-between Epic and Legendary gear; it typically has strong stat boosts and an augment unique to the character typically only obtained through Gear Sets (Common, Rare or Epic).
Before in Injustice 2, gear was only obtained through Mother Boxes or within the Multiverse, either via completing multiverse towers, goals or obtained as random drops after matches; now there is a brand-new method to obtain gear alongside these classic methods: gear looting. After fighting an opponent in the multiverse (which has 5 random pieces equipped to them), the player has an option to "loot" an opponent and take one of the 5 pieces of gear they have equipped (or an ability if they have it equipped); while opponents often have common gear equipped in lower difficulties, typically the higher the difficulty, the better gear the opponent will have equipped, maybe even having a Mythical gear piece if the difficulty is high enough. This allows players to gain better and sometimes a specific gear piece more easily, since they have the option to choose which one they want - or they could skip the choice option since some gear isn't that useful.
Another type of interchangeable gear piece introduced in Injustice 2 is Abilities; in Injustice 2, players could equip special abilities to fighters that either added new attacks or replaced ones already available.
