A world where Superheroes can’t get along is a world that will suck for non-superheroes. That’s the profound subtext of the story trailer for Injustice 2.
Get Injustice 2 on Amazon:
The trailer, which is annoyingly narrated – its thin script drawn out in short phrases over two minutes, gives us everything we need to know about the story. Lois is dead. She was pregnant. Superman is irate. Batman’s mad that Superman’s mad. He condones crime and chaos. This is the non-canon Superman vs Batman, with a rehashed storyline from Captain America Civil War.
But who really cares about story in a fighting game? We just want to know who’s gonna show up.
In addition to Batman and Superman, the trailer gives us Poison Ivy, Robin, Brainiac, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Darkseid. We’ll know the full lineup on February 7th. Aquaman, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, The Flash and Deadshot are also shoe-ins. There are about 20 others that are yet to be revealed.
Whoever the remaining heroes are, when they rumble, we will crumble.
Game’s out May 16.
