Hi, nerdy friends! Ok, let’s go straight to the head of this. It-is-awesome! It wouldn’t be an issue full of action, punches, flying kicks or explosives Batrangs. But it’s definitely an important issue. Spoilers ahead!
What is this all about?
The heroes come together again to mourn a fallen comrade. Later, Batman is confronted by Blue Beetle, and Black Canary is visited by someone from her past. Then, just as Batman and his team think they’re going to have a rare moment of happiness, the Suicide Squad gets ready to spoil the party.
Now, let me explain why this is such an important issue. We’ll see a dark knight going deeper into darkness when he chooses a path, which involved a lot of his supporters. But, could this divide them in the near future if something happens to their children? Apparently, this would be a breaking point, their trust is hanging on from a tiny rope.
Besides the previous internal frictions, we are brought back to a huge (small or whatever he want to be) Superhero, in the form of Plastic Man. One of the most powerful beings in the world, in Batman the Dark Knight Returns II, he goes after this same hero and says he is the most powerful (and insane). Well, this time Injustice and Tom Taylor brings him to us, and with double the trouble! Not only do we get Plastic Man but we also get his son Luke as well.
I cannot wait until we get to see them all in action together. The promise of a great fight in the future and definitely a hilarious adventure with these two teaming up with Batman. Their interactions with Batman are so perfect, bringing in a good quip here and there keeping the book on an even keel.
To sum up, really cool issue of Injustice 2, you could say that it is the calm before the storm. After you read this one, you definitely will want more, and now! This is the warm-up before Tom brings the action and I for one cannot wait!
Hope you enjoy this issue as much as I do!
