Injustice 2 is a very delayed sequel to an underrated fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us. The titles take the DC Universe and create something unique fans of the universe love. Based on a string of comics, the first game is based on two worlds, the one we know and an alternate where Superman rules over mankind after the Joker killed Lois Lane and his unborn child. That’s after Superman punched a whole right through the Joker.
Fast forward to the end of that story-arch and all is well, or is it?
Injustice 2 looks to continue the story with the addition of new characters. You spent the whole story waiting to play as Superman as he’s bigged up to be really overpowered than anyone else is (kinda is). But we have already seen the addition of Supergirl which should give Superman a run for his money if the confrontation arises, they are family after all. The previous instalment handles like a tame version of Mortal Combat but I’m hoping for more challenges as well as a wider range of special moves, seeing Superman batter someone round the stratosphere gets strangely boring after 4 or 5 times. Who would have thought it?
The trailer offers a tease into the story, with heroes fighting each other, again. We see Robin turning on Batman and Wonder Woman going toe to toe with Supergirl. Braniac looks to be the antagonist in this story, perhaps pulling the strings in the background.
