By now, I think most of you already watched Suicide Squad or at least watched a trailer. Did you remember what Amanda Waller had said? She said ‘What if Superman had decided to fly down and grab the President out of the Oval office? Who would have stopped him?’ That was what happened in this comic.

I didn’t read comic book for a while; however, my brother forced me to read Injustice. He said ‘it was as awesome as Civil War.’ I hated to say this but he was right. Injustice had everything that I loved about DC comic: action, romance, drama and humor. The graphic was fantastic. The story was also freaking amazing. It told the beginning of epic battle between two oldest friends in DC Universe, the bat and the man from another planet. The story-line was filled with all sort of excitement. It had caught my interest since first page. I don’t want to spoil you too much from the thrill of fantastic story.

I couldn’t say that I loved every characters in this comic even though they were well created and helped steer the story into greatness. However I do loved the Clown Prince of Crime and his sinister plan the most. He would be the only person who could push superman to his limit. He orchestrated everything and this time not even Batman could stop him.

Superman was the character I felt pity the most. He went from the man who had everything to the man who had nothing in just the blink of an eye. I’d like to say that he didn’t handle it very well. However I didn’t know what I’d do if I were in his shoes. Superman was in second stage of grief (anger) and he unleashed his wrath for those he deemed wrong. Batman tried to punch some sense into him but of course, it wouldn’t help. Otherwise, this comic would end since volume 1.

Batman was my hero. He had his own principal and that was why he couldn’t be on the same page with Superman.

I also thought the name Injustice suited the story. Because in order to make sense of injustice that was happened to him, Superman drew to conclusion that justice happened but it need our help. That was why he did what he did. That was why the story of epic battle begin.

PS. Alfred was badass.
