The Clown Prince of Crime as a mad bomber. Metropolis reduced to smoldering ruin. The temptation of Superman to shift from benevolent demigod to superpowered despot. These are the striking images at play in the new story trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The motivation for dozens of DC Comics’ heroes and villains to engage in brutal brawls has been nebulous at best, and even this new story trailer leaves a lot to the imagination. It seems as if the Joker has gone from maniacal madman to mass murderer and nuked Metropolis off of the map, and Superman is none too pleased, pulling the rest of the DC Universe into the middle of the conflict. It seems like pretty brave stuff to attempt, even for an alternate-universe take, and it looks like the overarching narrative will weave its way between bouts similar to Netherrealm’s Mortal Kombat reboot. This just makes the approaching April 16th release date all the more exciting!
Injustice: Gods Among Us will be released on April 16th.
