Magical number 21! It amazes me how long this series has gone, and I don’t see any signs of it stopping any time soon. There seems to be very small plot progression in each issue, but the $1 price tag makes it easy to bear. In this issue the war really begins, and we get another look at the lengths Wonder Woman is willing to go for her view of justice.
Issue 20 tries to play a horror movie type angle with Superman’s crew. It’s really hard to do that when you are dealing with superhuman beings. Regardless, issue 20 brings us an important reveal, and it helps drive the story forward. I really am wondering how many issues are in this series, especially since it feels like it’s been forever since I completed the Injustice campaign. That being said, let’s get into issue 20.
I apologize for the delay in these reviews, real life has been a distraction(no excuse I know). But we will catch up this week! You will get one issue review per day until Friday. That being said, issue 19 is another talk heavy installment, but it focuses on Billy Batson, a character not usually given the spot light. Let’s see where Billy takes us in the issue 19.
The time to pick sides is here. I had said previously this series reminds me of the Justice Lords arc in the Justice League cartoon, but it’s starting to remind me of Marvel’s Civil War arc as well. It is also reminding me that heroes aren’t like they were when I was a kid. Back then, heroes weren’t really questioned, they truly were godlike. If they did something, it must be for our own good. Injustice is showing us that isn’t always the case. This is a talk heavy issue. How did it go? Continue reading
The aftermath. In comics, the aftermath is as important, sometimes more so, than the actual event leading to it. This is the case because it is so easy to mess this up. Someone very important has been lost, and now we get to see how everyone reacts. As this important story continues, we are given a view most of us would have if we lived in this universe: from the bottom up. Continue reading
Yes, it is a single issue review. I figured since now we are caught up, we should review the issues as they are released. The fight in Arkham has started, and as we saw in the end of issue 15, Robin is in quite a bind. How does this battle progress, and can it stay interesting as we go further into the story? Let’s find out.
I’m a bit confused. I thought that this series would end right before the game came out, to make it an easy segway for those who wanted the game on release to get the full story experience. Apparently I was wrong, as this last week we got issue 15, and it’s still going to continue. That being said, things are continuing to get personal, as Superman is becoming more of a dictator than a hero, albeit a benevolent one(for the most part).
Alliances are being made, the lines are being drawn in the sand, and things are changing in the world of Injustice. We are seeing a side of Superman we have not really seen before. The closest thing would be the Superman in the Justice League animated series in the Justice Lords angle. We must not forget that this is a world that was already divided: land and sea. The king of Atlantis has been silent…until now.
Things are getting real in the Injustice world. We now have a Superman who wants to police the entire world. The way Superman has always been presented, he truly believes in a world of black and whites. Good and evil. Nothing in between. Now that he wants to be the main source of order, how will things go? This is what issues 7-9 are tackling, and a few other things. How does it go? Continue reading
It’s getting…interesting in the Injustice comics. We have once again seen how evil and maniacal the Joker can be, this time reaching the very soul of the man of steel. Now that the Joker has committed one of the biggest crimes in his life, what is the backlash from Superman? How about the Justice League? Let’s find out. Continue reading
