Injustice: Gods Among Us
A New York Times Bestseller!
From the makers of Mortal Kombat comes the critically acclaimed prequel comic to the smash hit fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us!
Things in the DC Universe have changed after Superman is tricked into destroying the one thing he loves the most. Now unwilling to let crime go unpunished, the heroes of our world must choose if they are with Superman or against him. But not every country will submit to his new world order and neither will Superman's greatest threat—Batman!
The Comic Multiverse is an outlet of literature most people can’t be bothered to pay attention too. But for those of us who do, I have come to tell you why one our most favourite storyline arcs is..well our favourite! So without further ado, here are the top 3 reasons INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US prequel comics is the best storyline arc we have seen in comics in a long time…
- DC shows its darker side…and it gets dark!
If you’ve only ever seen any of the latest DC-based superhero movies (The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman just to name a few), you should know that no, it’s not something new they’re doing, DC has always pulled from the darker, more disquieting aspects of their characters’ personas. I mean, this is the Universe that brought us the Joker beating Robin to death savagely and vividly without any cause above getting Batman’s attention! BUT certainly there are lines even DC won’t cross, right? WRONG! The story gets going with Lois Lane’s death and the nuclear annihilation of Metropolis. If that’s not dark, your favourite superhero will probably die a horrible death.
- Everyone gets together!
It’s ALWAYS great when your favourite supers get together and fight crime! The best part about massive storylines is that the story is just so complex and over-encompassing, a few superheroes just aren’t enough. Every major superhero in the DC Universe you could think of will probably at least show him/herself once. And besides, this all makes sense! If Superman’s going to take over the world and Batman’s going to oppose him, why wouldn’t everyone else show up and take sides?
- Many of your favourites die.
As sad as it sounds, a lot of people die in this storyline. If it wasn’t the fact that this is in an alternate Universe separate from the main storyline universe (It’s too complicated, google String Theory), I would probably stop reading comics until they reboot things again. The worst part about this is how they die. It’s one thing for a hero to tragically fall, it’s just disheartening when they’re felled by their closest friends and your favourite superheroes.
Now, Year 5, Volume 1 is coming out in Early-January of 2016, but you won't be disappointed with what's already out! Year 1 is action- packed with all of your favourite Supers fighting over the single question of "What are you willing to do to bring order to the planet?"; Year 2 brings in the Cosmos sub-genre of the DC Universe with the arrival of the Green Lantern Corps and their nemesis, the Sinestro Corps; Year 3 encrouches on the world of magic with the involvement of Dr. Fate, John Constantine,and the demon lord Trigon; and, of course, Year 4 begins with the invasion of the Olympians as they attempt to bring back order in a world torn by contrived peace. So what're you waiting for? Get going and catch up!
