Injustice 2: Enchantress Character (DLC) Review
The Enchantress comes ready to hex the rest of the Injustice 2 roster!
The Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack grants access to the first, second and third fighter packs for DLC characters as well as all other fighter packs. The fighter packs contain an additional three characters that are added to the roster for Injustice 2 and the fighter packs can be bought separately or the fighters inside of them can be bought one at a time. The third set of three characters are (The) Atom, Enchantress and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). Enchantress is the second character of the fighters released for the third Fighter Pack.
If you've seen the Suicide Squad movie that was released in 2017, you'll be familiar with the Enchantress since she was the villain of that movie. Enchantress is both a hero and a villain, sort of like an anti-hero type of character. June Moone is a freelance artist that gained the ability to call upon the a magical being to possess her body and become The Enchantress. As June Moone in control of the Enchantress, the character is a hero that joins up with the suicide squad. When the Enchantress has full control of the body, the Enchantress is a full-fledged super villain with goals of her own.
Enchantress takes on her comic look for the most part in Injustice 2. She wears a green and black suit with a black hoodie. She has a very sinister look to her face to match her movie appearance as well. Her normal attacks extend further than a character's usual normals since she adds magical power behind her hits to give them have a greater range such as a magical sword behind her standing back + Medium Attack. Her heavy overhead is probably the greatest example of her range since it is a total mid-range attack that calls upon a creature hand that comes through a portal. Her special moves are a mix of magical powers that include a spell of protection that makes her lose super meter instead of health, a hex that places various negative effects on her opponent and a soul rip attack that can be meter burned into a soul steal that will give Enchantress health.
Enchantress' character power causes her to summon a demon that will perform various actions based on the command done after the initial summoning. The demon will walk forward and perform an overhead attack if nothing is done by default. The demon will stand in a guarding position to protect the Enchantress during one command and this guard can be canceled. Once the guard is canceled the demon can be commanded to perform other moves since it will continue to walk forward at that time. The demon can also be made to explode once a certain command is performed.
Enchantress' character power is probably the most unique part about her since it can lead to many nice setups with the demon actions. She feels a lot like Killer Frost from the original Injustice only with negative status powers. Overall she is an alright mid-range character but not really that flashy or fun to watch.
