While this may be leading towards a Mortal Kombat video game, its worth the look even if you don’t plan to get the game.
While I will try to avoid them, there still may be spoilers.
To start, for those who don’t know, Injustice Gods Among Us is a video game. Well, it will be soon once its finished and on the shelves. Made by the same people who make Mortal Kombat, it should hopefully be a fun game and in a similar style. I just hope it’ll be better than the DC vs Mortal Kombat game.
Anyways, this comic is to tell the events that lead up to the game. Why things are… well where they are during the game. This first comic is an interesting read though. Not being tied into the mainstream universe, well they can get away with a lot of things that otherwise probably would not be touched upon. Like deaths. I won’t state names, but this first issue brings in character deaths. Sure it starts off pretty calm and loving, but the stakes really ramp up near the end when Joker makes his entrance. If you want to see the fall of some iconic DC characters along with deaths and other things that often don’t happen in the main universe, this comic is the perfect choice.
Before closing this though I will add in a comment about some of the voice talent for the upcoming game. Tara Strong will be Harley, who use to play Raven in Teen Titans and Harley Quinn in Arkham City. George Newbern returns for Superman again (Justice League and various other cartoons as Supes). Flash is Charlie Schlatter (Flash in Superman Animated Series, The Batman, DC Lego games). Susan Eisenberg for Wonder Woman (WW in Justice League cartoon). Hal Jordan from the recent Green Lantern cartoon via Josh Keaton. Probably best of all though is Kevin Conroy as Batman once again!
Really, we have much of the Justice League cartoon’s main roster reprising their roles. Most those who aren’t from that series are reprising roles from various other cartoons! That and add in Nightwing will be in this game and how the comic has been after one issue, well it should be a fun ride.
