Although it's a long wait until WB Games and NetherRealm Studios release the DC Comics-inspired brawler "Injustice: Gods Among Us," the developers are certainly ramping up anticipation for the April 2013 release as they continue to reveal playable characters. The latest, revealed in a trailer posted by Gamespot, is Deathstroke the Terminator, who uses all manner of firearms and weapons to lay waste to the heroes and villains in the DCU.

The trailer showcases everything from Deathstroke's assault rifle, sniper rifle, pistol and explosive weapons to his signature sword, which he uses to devastating effect. As the premiere assassin in the DC Universe, Deathstroke holds his own in the trailer against Catwoman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow.

The assassin is the thirteenth character revealed out of the over 20 playable characters in the game, which already includes DC mainstays like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, along with less-mainstream characters like Solomon Grundy and Cyborg.

"Injustice: Gods Among Us" releases April 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
