Injustice 2 Keeps The Sexy Train Rolling With A Sultry Poison Ivy
Injustice 2 - Poison Ivy
(Last Updated On: February 14, 2017)

NetherRealm tried toning down and getting rid of the sexiness in Mortal Kombat X. They wanted more masculine women who dressed the part of butt-kickers as opposed to the over-the-top eye-candy present in Mortal Kombat 9. They seem to have found a sensible middle-ground with Injustice 2, unveiling a very sexually suggestive and sultry take on Poison Ivy for Valentine’s Day.

The femme fatale was revealed in-game alongside Catwoman, Black Canary and newcomer Cheetah. They made sure that Ivy’s face and body language depicted someone in control of her sexuality, and someone who isn’t afraid to flaunt it, whip it, and snap it around like the vines she unleashes per her command. You can see Ivy, Catwoman, Black Canary and Cheetah in action with the trailer below.

Sadly, boob physics are still off the table. You can obviously see where they’ve made sure that the boob physics are about as wooden as Mike Pence’s face. And there’s nothing sexy about Pence’s face.

Most of the commenters on the YouTube page noted that Poison Ivy appears to be Injustice 2’s sexiest character yet. It’s also a stark departure from the man-face designs that NetherRealm gave their previous Mortal Kombat characters, showing a lot more maturity in depicting the feminine aspects of the female form.

Others were still head over heels with how lovely they made Black Canary look, and having a voice to match.

Catwoman, however… well… she’s still a work in progress.

Commenters rightly pointed out how her hairline looks disjointed and incomplete, how her face seems a little buttery and how her voice doesn’t quite match her look. Others were simply disappointed that she wasn’t wearing her goggles.

I’m more-so interested in the customization for some of these characters, especially Poison Ivy. I think that’s going to be the real mark of creativity and originality for Injustice 2; playing through the game and unlocking new gear for your favorite heroes and villains.

Also, I hope Green Arrow makes the cut again.

Injustice 2 is due to drop on May 16th this spring for the Xbox One and PS4.

  • I wonder if this is a sign of the growing dissent towards SJWs? Ed Boon may be a cuck now, but he’s shown before that with his past MK games that he certainly knows how to hyper-sexualize his female characters. Maybe he’s getting fed up with all the SJW garbage?

    Sometimes I do wonder though, with outlets like Kotaku, Polygon (or any other company who pushes SJW agenda), that if there is some kind of contract in place that they must adhere to in order to get paid by some feminist/SJW group.

    I mean, if you remember THAT day when virtually all of the mainstream news publications came out with the “even teenage boys do not want female characters sexualized” crap at once? That stinks of contractual issues at play there.

      Probably not even a contract. Just spew some SJW bullshit, and Soros will make sure you get presents in your bank account.

    Personally not a fan of any of those faces. The game’s visuals generally look really boring, like they tried too hard to be realistic, and then went overboard with the teal and orange color toning.

  • MONAD

    If they can keep Canary and Ivy’s sexiness, why can’t they do the same for Cheetah, Catwoman, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman? Netherrealm can’t render women’s faces for shit.
