Metallo appears as a cameo character in Injustice: Gods Among Us.


John Corben was a sergeant of the United States Army, one of the best soldiers under the command of General Sam Lane. When Superman first appeared in Metropolis, Lane went to Lex Luthor and agreed to help fund a plan to stop him-a battlesuit, composed of Luthor's proprietary 'Metallo' material, and powered by a strange, glowing green rock. Corben volunteered to pilot the suit. However, his first encounter with Superman almost killed Corben. Luthor saved Corben's life by literally integrating him into the suit, transforming him into the cyborg Metallo, with the Kryptonite rock functioning as his new 'heart'. Metallo subsequently attacked Superman again in a rampage which endangered not only the citizens of Metropolis but his own fellow soldiers. He was defeated by Superman once more and became one of the Man of Steel's most dangerous foes.
