When “Injustice: Gods Among Us” debuted back in 2013, the video game and the digital comic that accompanied it were a resounding success, so much so that the comic continued for several more years. DC Entertainment will release their “Injustice 2” video in just a few months, and — like its predecessor — it too will be accompanied by a digital-first comic.
Fan-favorite artist and DC Co-publisher Jim Lee recently shared his cover for the first issue of the upcoming “Injustice 2” #1. Featuring Batman, Green Lantern, Supergirl and a couple others, we see our heroes squaring off against longtime villain Brainiac.
Speaking to IGN, Jim Lee expressed his excitement for the series, saying, “I’m a big fan of ‘Injustice’ and thrilled to be part of the ‘Injustice 2’ comic launch. Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo have an exciting story in the works that will only add to the massive anticipation around the upcoming game.”
Written by Tom Taylor with art by Bruno Redondo, the “Injustice 2” digital-first comic reveals what happened between “Injustice: Gods Among Us” and the upcoming “Injustice 2.”
Developed by NetherRealm for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the sequel to the hit 2013 video game “Injustice: Gods Among Us” continues the storyline. As Batman and his allies work toward putting the pieces of society back together, they struggle against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. However, in the midst of that chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.
“Injustice 2” features such playable characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd and Blue Beetle, with arenas in DC Universe locations like Gotham City, Metropolis and Atlantis.
