Injustice: Gods Among Us – Easter Eggs, Cameos & References [Video]

Injustice: Gods Among Us is packed with references and cameos to please die-hard fans of the DC universe, and we’re going to attempt the super-heroic task of cataloging them all right here. Below, we’ll list cool background details in the stages, surprise DC character appearances in the story, and whatever else shows up in the archives or S.T.A.R. Labs missions.

There’s a ton of fanservice here, with Batman: Arkham City characters causing havoc in Arkham Asylum, while heroes are revered in the Halls of Justice. Finding every reference might be too much for us to handle alone, so if you’ve caught something we missed and think it should be included, let us know in the comments.

If you’re hungry to step into Batman, Superman, or even the Joker’s shoes get some fighting tips from Game Front’s Injustice: Gods Among Us video guide. To get the rest of our secrets and unlockables, check out these Injustice: Gods Among Us cheats for a full list of extras.

    I could be wrong but it looked like Mr. Terrific is in the background working on a computer in the watchtower. You can spot him on the video walkthrough during the Deathstroke fight with the Flash.

    I’m not sure if this is specifically him, but in the background of the Throne Room, theres a silhouette swimming in the water that I’m pretty sure is Lagoon Boy c:
