Dictator Superman And Terrorist Batman Reluctantly Join Forces To Fight An Even Bigger Threat In Injustice 2

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.

If you were wondering what might possibly bring Superman and Batman — who are friends-turned-mortal-enemies in this continuity — back together, the answer is an evil 12th-level intellect AI that destroyed Krypton. Things don't look good for some of the heroes showing up in the sequel to Netherrealm's DC Comics-based fighting game, particularly Green Arrow and Black Canary.

It's an open question as to whether Superman will get back to being a boy scout in this universe. The appeal of the Injustice concept has been watching the characters act in ways that diverge wildly from their more traditional iterations. We'll see where things wind up when Injustice 2 comes out next month.


    Why does this look far more exciting than the Justice League movie in terms of plot...

      i cant play fighting games for shit, but man did i love watching MK10 storyline and Injustice on youtube.. All the cinematics minus the ingame fights come out at at around 1hr 30min, but with the fights end up (depending on the player's skill) the length can be close to 3hrs long. Perfect movie night xD

      I dunno, the lack of Superman in the JL trailers has me hyped that he might only have hopefully five minutes of screen time.

      Maybe the films could take a leaf from the first Injustice game, and have alternate universe Batman come along and ask everyone why they're being dicks.

        Indeed. Though they DID hint in BVS that it's all heading to Injustice, with Barry appearing in his wtf robot thing? I doubt we'll get it though...

        At this point? I'd even love it if DC said 'Screw it, CG movies are the way to go!'

          You mean build an expanded universe from Lego Batman? :)

            Hah, nah. Just get the Netherrealm guys on contract to deliver an expanded Injustice universe ;)
