The entire point of DC’s Injustice is to imagine a universe in which traditional canon is basically thrown out of the window in favor of a riveting series of what ifs. What if Superman became tyrannical despot? What if everyone had super strength? What if... Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle were lovers?
The best part of Injustice 2 for me isn’t kicking butts with Green Arrow. It’s seeing what the people whose butts I’m going to kick are wearing. If you’re like me and have been gasping and cooing approvingly every time some killer fashion pops up in the fighting game sequel, here is a place to share.
Diana of Themyscira has a big movie coming out this week. She’s also a major player in new release Injustice 2, a video game where superheroes fight each other over crossing moral boundaries. But Wonder Woman shouldn’t just be part of an ensemble; she should be the main character.
Before he became the Red Hood, Jason Todd met a grisly fate at the hands of the Joker in the iconic A Death in the Family storyline, including a horrifying beating with a crowbar. At least now in Injustice 2, Jason can enact some justice (both poetic and physically) against the clown prince of crime as payback.
The first Injustice game—and the fantastic tie-in comic that accompanied it—told a story that pitted Batman and Superman against each other in a battle between heroism and villainy, and how good people can be driven to do horrible things. Injustice 2 isn’t really about that, and that’s both interesting and at times…
Damn it, we were so close to getting one of Milestone Media’s best characters in the new superhero fighting game. Heroes and villains from all over the DC Comics multiverse are part of the roster in Injustice 2 but, for the most part, they come from the well-known core of characters clustered around the Justice…
On one hand, Injustice 2 delivers a funhouse-mirror take on DC Comics’ biggest characters, exploring the characters in intriguingly divergent ways. On the other hand, because it’s a fighting game, all the story needs to do is keep ginning up reasons for former Justice Leaguers to punch each other across the world. …
Much of Injustice 2's charm stems from how it gives players the ability to make their favorite DC comic book characters beat the crap out of each other. Fighting aside, though, the game also features some pretty solid character development for one of DC’s most iconic antiheroes, Harley Quinn.
The fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us gave us a world torn apart by conflict between between two of comics’ greatest heroes. Now brutal murderer Superman and “I don’t want to fight you” Batman are back, joining forces against the most diabolical foe the DC Universe has ever faced—loot boxes.
Look at that stance! The utter disdain! The Lord of Apokolips is going to be smug as all get-out when the next DC Comics fighting game hits next month.
In the Injustice universe, Kal-El wanted to rule the Earth in an ostensibly benevolent dictatorship, but a lot of people ended up dying at the Man of Steel’s hands. Brainiac? He’s coming to Injustice 2 to in an attempt to top Superman’s “achievement” by destroying the whole planet.
Did you ever draw different costumes for Superman, Wonder Woman, or Cyborg in your Social Studies notebook? Yeah, me too. The upcoming Injustice 2 video game sort of lets you do the same thing, including a Dark Knight that looks like he’s wearing Mandalorian battle armor.
While the CW’s Barry Allen might have been forbidden from mucking with the time stream (because he’s a big ol’ dork), the Barry Allen of Injustice 2 is more than happy to use his superspeed to beat you up in the past, present, or future. And he looks pretty damn good while doing so.
Things aren’t looking so good for one member of the Justice League in this teaser for the DC Comics-based fighting game. The hero in question is someone who’s died in the comics but later came back. Really narrows it down, huh?
Last week the rain was pouring, the streets were flooded, and I had zero desire to leave the comfort of my home. But the makers of Injustice 2 were offering an intimate demo, and by god I wanted to see what Supergirl looked like in DC’s best murderverse.
She’s also bringing cats, of course—they don’t call her catwoman for nothing. But the exploding bike is a surprising touch.
Bane’s bodybuilding poses make me think he’s constantly humming Right Said Fred’s “Too Sexy” to himself. And when he gets to the “so sexy it hurts” part, that’s when he breaks your back.
Aw, look, little baby Kal-El, Isn’t he cute? Too bad he’s going to grow up to be a murderous despot who beats up all his friends and takes over his adopted homeworld.
Hmm, maybe Peter Parker and Barbara Ann Minerva had the same martial arts sensei?
This new Injustice 2 trailer is all about Firestorm, which, y’know, great. Big fan of the Nuclear Man here. But one of the moments in the new teaser has me asking questions about one of Batman’s arch-foes.
