Black Manta will soon be hunting for prey in the ranks of Injustice 2, and fans can finally check out the first image of the fighter in action (as a playable character, that is, not just an environmental hazard).
The image was tweeted out by creative director Ed Boon, announcing the character’s official gameplay reveal for Sunday, August 27th, dropping at 4 p.m. PT. One image admittedly doesn’t tell us a ton about the character, but we do see Manta unleashing a powerful eye-beam attack that seems to unbalance the Swamp Thing he is facing.

Black Manta is expected to be the first fighter coming in Injustice 2‘s Fighter Pack 2, followed by the recently announced Raiden from Mortal Kombat and Hellboy from… well, Hellboy. The full pack can be purchased on September 12th, when its first character- Black Manta presumably- also becomes available. Fans will have to wait a little longer for the other two fighters, although owning the Fighter Pack 2 does grant early access.
