Today’s guest post is by Colin Crebs.

In continuing anticipation of Injustice: Gods Among Us coming next month, let’s have a look at the Flash’s appearance in 2 more tournament fighting games, Mortal Kombat v. DC Universe (“MKvDC”) on Xbox360 and PS3, and the fan-made MUGEN on PC.

So I’ve been following DC Comic’s latest foray into fighting games, Injustice: Gods Among Us extremely closely.
