My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This is a prequel comic to the smash hit fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Here a single act by the most demented villain in the DC Universe causes Superman to commit a crime so heinous that it changes his whole outlook on life and his place in the world. Where once this icon believed in justice through the law, he know decides that he must personally put a stop crime once and for all, no matter if the governments of the world or his fellow heroes agree with him. For now, Superman is truly a god among us, meting out punishment to all those who stand against him!

Now, I realize many video game tie-ins really suck. Having read more than a few of them when I was younger, I did go into this prepared for things to not work out. But, to my surprise, this was a really good comic collection with a strong story and great art.

I’ll just get to the point and list why I liked this one?

1) My sons and I play the video game a good bit. (I’m always Green Arrow.)  Due to that, the whole story of Superman’s transformation into a world dictator is familiar to me, and I really wanted to see how it happened.Green_Arrow_1

2) I’m a sucker for alternate history stories. It just amazes me how a few tweaks to history can change everything.

3) Love Supes and Bats going at it.

4) Good art.

5) The promise of lots of superhero mayhem to come, because DCU continuity doesn’t matter. This creative team can do whatever they want.

For all those reason, I’m looking forward to reading the next volume in this series.

Purchase the book at Amazon.

  1. I heard that the story mode in Injustice was really good. Never played the game, but I’d deff be interested in checking this one out to see what’s up with Superman.
