Justice League 'Injustice' Year Four has wrapped up and there have been a ton of amazing moments in this series. But what else would you expect from a book that gave you a Superman that has become a tyrant? For those of you who are still on the fence about reading the comic or for those of you who have played the game but don't know the backstory, allow your humble writer to give you some of the great moments of the series.
Check out the video game opener:
1. Superman kills Joker
It has to start here because this is the moment that started it all. The video game had a lot more drama than the comic. In the comic, Superman flew in and put his hand through the Joker without saying a word. That made the scene more realistic and more ruthless. No words, just death.
2. Superman breaks Batman Bane style
There is this Internet debate among comic book fans about who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman if there was no real prep. Well, fun fact, Batman would actually lose if Superman really wanted to beat him and this was proof.
But as always, Batman got the last word. This finalized Superman no longer being a hero.
3. Superman gets a Fear ring
So on top of all of his powers and seemingly unlimited strength, you give him a ring powered by fear? Yeah, that seems fair.
4. Alfred beats down Superman
Superman was torturing Batman for information and there seemed to be no way to stop Superman. But, Alfred took a pill that gave him super strength and durability. Alfred beat Superman down like a father defending his son. It was glorious.
5. Hal Jordan embraces Fear
Years and years of fighting the Sinestro Corp as a member of the Green Lantern Corp, Hal is stripped of his Green Lantern Ring. While Hal and his girlfriend fall, Sinestro offers Hal a Fear ring and Hal accepts it.
6. Batman and Detective Chimp brooding in the back seat of a car
This needs no explanation other than the title and the picture.
7. Death of a son
In a fit of anger, Damian Wayne (Batman's son) accidentally killed Dick Grayson, the original Robin. He was more of a son to Bruce Wayne than Damian ever could have been.
8. Aquaman vs. Poseidon
People talk about Aquaman being useless, but he did take out a god of Olympus, guys.
9. Black Canary vs. Superman
Superman murdered her husband, Green Arrow, before he could see their son be born. She may not have killed Superman in return and, even though she died in the end, she made him hurt while exposing him to the world as a killer.
10. Everything Harley Quinn does
Harley Quinn is absolute GOLD! Not only is she her normally hilarious self, she shows more emotions than just being crazy. We also find out that she had a kid with the Joker that he never knew about. The best part is the interaction between him, Green Arrow, and Black Canary.
