Comments

Based on the video game of the same name, this series featured an alternate version of Wonder Woman. The title was released as a weekly Digital Comic in parallel with a monthly print version.

The alternate reality featured in Injustice explored a world where heroes take justice into their own hands and become an authoritarian regime under the command of Superman.  Wonder Woman allies herself with Kal, meaning she is effectively a villain in this title.

Director Zack Snyder had intended his original two part Justice League movie, that was going to follow on from the events of ‘Batman versus Superman’, to be based on the events of Injustice. This authoritarian world controlled by the Man of Steel was even hinted at in a flash-forward “dream sequence” in the 2016 movie.

Synopsis

While Hawkgirl has been on Earth serving as one of Superman’s most loyal foot soldiers, where has Hawkman been all this time? Back home on Thanagar, it seems, and none to pleased about the reason for his wife’s absence. Now he’s heading for Earth and a fateful confrontation. Elsewhere, Flash’s Rogues have joined the Insurgency to stage a series of lightning attacks on multiple cities.
