    Cheetah Injustice 2
    Real Name:

    Barbara Ann Minerva


    140 lbs. (63 kg)



    The Cheetah is a super-villain legacy of characters with feline characteristics who usually fight Wonder Woman. There have been several different people to use this alias. Priscilla Rich was the original during the Golden Age, and Deborah Domaine was the Silver Age version. Barbara Ann Minerva is the current contemporary version. The character has been involved with Villainy, Inc., the Injustice League and the Secret Society of Super-Villains.

    Cheetah appears in the villains bar World's End in Keystone City, watching another villain play darts when the Flash and Wonder Woman suddenly burst in. Cheetah is in disbelief, her claws ready, though Wonder Woman says they are only here for Mirror Master and they don't want trouble. When Cheetah approaches menacingly, asking, "And what if we want trouble?"

    Powers and Abilities
    Cheetah possesses enhanced strength, speed, durability, stamina, and agility all comparable to Wonder Woman, allowing her to fight the Amazon on an even playing field. Her claws and teeth are strong enough to cut and wound even Superman, and Minerva possesses a genius level intellect.

    Cheetah is a human/cheetah hybrid, her body covered entirely in fur. She covers her lower body with a silver corset like clothing that has the edged, armored look most characters in Injustice have.

    I just hope they release some Alex Ross inspired gear for her:


    I don't want to be a cheetah lady; I want to be a crazy lady with a cheetah on my head!

    This was the character I expected would be in this game to be WW's nemesis. She looks really fluid. Can't wait to try her out.

    Man if she plays like Wolverine or X-23 from Marvel vs Capcom or Kabal from MK she's going to be incredibly awesome to use!! I can't wait to see more of her gameplay since she seems like a fast character!

    I'm pretty excited for her, they're doing great stuff with her in Wonder Woman Rebirth comics.

    Also, props for using the secret six panel of her pushing Bane, i was gonna post it!

    This video proves her abilities. She's fast only like Wolverine, not as Kabal.

    Animated cheetah is barbara Minerva with Debbie's power set. In comics Minerva and Sebestian are legit speedsters. Debbie was around around wolverine level and Prscilla Rich was catwoman lite.

    I see. I know that Cheetah is the fastest animal in the world, but not at Flash's or Kabal's level in speed.

    Don't let the name confuse you. Barbara has moved so fast in front of supergirl and donna Troy they didn't even notice. She has managed to dodge and hit flash both wally and Barry at separate occasions. Sebestian punched superman in face so fast and so hard he thought he was hit by Wonder Woman or captain marvel.
    Prscilla is an average woman in cheetah printed suit, she is quite lame just like all of wonder woman's golden age villains.

    If I remember correctly, Zoom taught Cheetah how to use the speed force! So yes Cheetah can be a really fast character!

    Hopefully now she'll start getting the respect she deserves, instead of ignorant writers having Batman, Green Arrow or Catwoman taking her out SMH!

    When I see her running on all fours during her intro, I have to wonder if her trait is going to be a Run button, and maybe the trait meter will be a Stamina bar. Like how only Ken has a Run in SFV. And it would make sense because she's so fast and they already have a great animation there in the intro.

    It almost looks like she's low enough that she could low-profile things with it.

    Guys she looks awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing more of her.

    Edit: Great thread by the way! Love these types of threads. Good way to learn more about a character

    Crimzon-ET Got Face Huggers?

    She looks more interesting than I thought she would. For awhile I though she was just going to be a Premier skin for Catwoman. Speaking of Premier skins I think it would be cool is she got a Cheetara skin since WB owns Thundercats.

    However I was hoping Hawkgirl would get a Silverhawks skin in INJ:GOU but of course that didn't happen,Ha.

    Edit: It's good that there are users on here that know about her story and abilities. Now everyone has a better idea of what she is about and can speculate on what her moveset and playstyle could be.

    This is what I thought as well. Except my initial thought was Riptors run move from Killer Instinct

    EntropicByDesign Confused and afraid.

    Very cool addition. Didnt even know this character existed, but she looks cool as hell and has crazy potential from a design standpoint.

    I'm hoping/expecting her to play like hellfire scorpion without the teleport. Crazy good frames and range but not crazy mixups. Maybe some sort of extra movement, like a pounce.

    It was hunter zolomon Zoom who doesn't use speed force. Cheetah asked him to lend her some speed but he told cheetah his powers work differently than Wally's. He also told her that her problem is psychological like Flash's and she needs to believe in her self to get better.

    I m happy for those of you who are interested in her.

    I wanted to Circe to be in the game. Oh well, there is still chance for DLC.

    I also thought she'd be a premium skin for catwoman, but from the little we've seen I'm pumped she's not. I'll be starting with her on launch day!
