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.

This is the final issue in the series and it was replaced by a new series entitled ‘Injustice: Ground Zero’.

Synopsis

The five year saga reaches its dramatic conclusion leading right up to the point where the story in the first Injustice video game began.

Batman and Luthor race to finish constructing the device they think will save the world, just as Superman closes in on Batman’s secret base. Old foes return and new allies are revealed. But who will be the next to make the ultimate sacrifice?
