This limited series bridged the gap between the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book series and the forthcoming new video game, Injustice 2. The title was released as a weekly Digital Comic in parallel with a 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

When a violent protest against Superman’s regime breaks out on the streets of Gotham City, Sinestro arrives to put down the participants by any means necessary. But the timely appearance of Wonder Woman and Green Arrow from the parallel Earth prevents a possible slaughter. Meanwhile, on the streets, Harley and her gang plan to use the cover of the riot to strike a blow against Superman…until parallel Earth Batman shows up.
