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

Imagine a world where Superman never turned evil. Imagine a reality where Superman and Batman are still allies in a never-ending battle against crime and cosmic-level threats against Earth. As the series approaches its conclusion, a better world is revealed, and a glimmer of hope is given to another reality still held in the grip of Superman’s Regime.
