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


Originally a janitor for the Daily Planet building, Rudolph Jones willingly applied for a job at LexCorp Industries. While receiving a tour around LexCorp Towers, Jones accidentally dropped a doughnut he was eating into a puddle of toxic waste; regardless, the dimwitted Rudy picked up the doughnut and continued to devour it, causing a bizarre mutation in his body that transformed him into a leech-like energy-vampire named The Parasite. As the Parasite, Rudy often attempted to drain the life force of Superman to satisfy his never-ending hunger for the life forces of others.
