So, I went straight from identity crisis onto another DC collection- Injustice; Gods Among Us by Tom Taylor, Jheremy Raapack and Mike S Miller.
It’s funny timing as Iv just recently had a clear out of time wasting games on my iPad and one that I didn’t mention was the Injustice game (which I’d deleted a whils back), I’d enjoyed it but it was a simple two button fighter that just got a little dull over time. I’d been rotating harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, solomon Grundy, the flash and the joker through my team so i was curious to see what the characters were up to in the prequel to the game.
Well the jokers busy, he kills Lois Lane making Superman more than a little angry, he snaps and goes on a crusade against all war and violence with the majority of the superheroes behind him- specifically Wonder Woman who seems to be whispering in his ear and keeping him angry the whole time.
Meanwhile Batman refuses to stand with Superman (further angering him) and Aquaman takes his underwater allies to war against the heroes over a whaling fleet.
It all comes to a head as superman leads heroes to Arkham Asylum to take vengeance on the incarcerated maniacs and Batman and Nightwing stand against him. My comic crush Harley Quinn releases Solomon Grundy who causes mayhem before everything reaches a very dramatic climax.
I enjoyed this one, it maintained the humour id discovered in identity crisis and covered a lot of heroes very well. It was a very quick read- it was fairly clear it was meant as a game tie in as opposed to a stand comic run but it was fun enough that I immediately ordered volume two.
