Playing as Green Lantern

Green Lantern in Injustice 2 is one of the few characters that have received quite a lot of changes and play like a completely different character when compared to their playstyle in Injustuce: Gods among Us. You will not see Mini Railgun and Rockets in the movelist as they now appear under Gear Abilities. Green Lantern in Injustice 2 can easily close in the gap with his strings and chain them into devastating combos.

He can also effectively deal with characters who excel at zoning their opponents out such as Bane with moves like Overcharged Lantern, Bowled Out, Lantern Blast, etc. Not to mention that he can increase the damage output of his Special Attacks with his Character Power.

If you are looking forward to picking up Green Lantern in near future, make sure to master his Special Attacks and chaning them into combos. As for playing against it, try to remember that he is a mid-ranged character who utilizes heavily on his Special Attacks and Character Power. As long as you are proficient at avoiding these, you should be good to go.
