Injustice 2- Black Manta's Ending

Brainiac stole Atlantis. For that, I could have thanked him. But that wasn't enough. Arthur Curry's kingdom had to be wiped from history. Forgotten. Lost. As it should be. I found just the place, guarded by Earth's most savage predators. Once upon a time, Arthur Curry killed my father. Now that I've killed his kingdom, all that remains is to kill "the King" himself. Only then will I consider my father's murder avenged. Only then will I rest. And what of Aquaman? Does he come forward to avenge his own people? No. He hides behind an alien and an Amazon. Let him. It won't save him. Compared to that alien freak, Brainiac, these three will be fish for the slaughter. And when they're dead, the world can thank Black Manta.

Costumes

Black Manta - Forever Evil

The Black Manta design from Injustice is very different to the Injustice 2 stage transition design. The stage transition design also features a wrist gauntlet that fires lasers, a hand held trident (katar), twin blades and a trident, the only remaining of these weapons on the DLC character is the wrist gauntlet and the katar.

Black Manta wears a black bodysuit and a large silver helmet with red glowing eye holes (making him resemble an alien) and breathing tubes connected to the oxygen tanks on his back. However, in the Atlantis Stage Transition, his helmet has a different visor and helmet shape.

To your right is Black Manta's skin, Forever Evil. He is wearing his default gear. The remainder of his costumes can be found on his gallery page.

Trivia

  • He is mentioned in the story mode by the alternate Aquaman.
  • In the games first trailer, Black Manta retained his original design. However, the helm was redesigned for unknown reasons.
  • Near the end of the Fighter Pack 1 trailer, six silhouettes appear, indicating that these are future DLC characters. One of the silhouettes resemble Black Manta. This turned out to be true as of Fighter Pack 2.
  • Black Manta's ending makes a reference The Trench, an ocean-dwelling race of evil creatures that are enemies of Aquaman in the comics. Some of them can be seen briefly in the ending as well.
