* MythologyGag:
** Bane's Supermove ends with [[FanNickname The]] [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} Bat]]-[[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Breaker]].
** Superman ends his by [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague slamming his opponent into the ground from very high up]].
** Batman ends his by [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum having the Batmobile run the opponent over while on auto-drive]].
** Using Aquaman's Supermove on Batman will remind one of [[Film/BatmanTheMovie at least]] [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity two other times]] Batman had a run-in with a ThreateningShark.
** Green Arrow's S.T.A.R. Labs missions involve him [[Series/{{Arrow}} fulfilling his father's dying wish by crossing names off a list]]. His [[http://i.imgur.com/TERnF4t.jpg DLC costume]] is also his outfit from his live-action appearance, complete with the actor from the show voicing him when it is used.
** The inmates of Arkham Asylum (Killer Croc, Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face, Scarecrow) are identical to their appearances in ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Batman: Arkham City]]''. The Asylum's environments even seem to be partially based on those seen in ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Batman: Arkham Asylum]]''.
** Darkseid's design is identical to that used in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse''. Also, in Story Mode, the first opponent to be fought against in the DC side's story was Deathstroke. In Injustice, he is again the first opponent to be fought.
** Some of the Clash dialogue contain references as well. For example, when Clashing against Grundy, Batman call him an "overgrown gorilla." To which Grundy responds: "Me Grundy, not Grodd!"
** Grundy also references his friendship with Shayera in [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague the cartoon]], "Thought bird-nose was friend!"
** In the story, Regime Aquaman leads his Atlantean forces into battle against [[{{Comicbook/Flashpoint}} the Amazons]], following the main universe Wonder Woman.
** Some of The Joker's heavier attacks and his Supermove have him [[ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily flogging combatants with a crowbar]]. He also fights primarily [[Film/TheDarkKnight using a]] [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice knife]]. [[Film/TheDarkKnight He also has a knife hidden in his shoe.]]
*** After The Joker [[spoiler:defeats Nightwing in his story chapter]], he quips, "I'll have to tell Batman [[ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily there's been a death in the family]]."
*** The Joker's fighting stance is very, very reminiscent of his incarnation in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', slightly hunched over, knife gripped loosely at his side.
*** Also, in his victory cutscene, he douses his defeated opponent in gasoline and [[KillItWithFire lights them up]], much like how he did the same to a mob boss and a pile of money in the above film (because "[it's] cheap").
*** His face is rather reminiscent of Creator/JackNicholson, an iconic big-screen Joker.
** Cyborg brings his trademark "[[{{Catchphrase}} BOOYAH!]]" with him from ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Teen Titans]]''. In addition, he is the only character in the storyline to refer to Deathstroke as "Slade".
** Bane's design seems to take some inspiration from his appearance in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', including his skin turning green briefly when he doses up on Venom. And he does it by pressing a button on his chest, rather than a control on his wrist.
** Raven uses her mantra from ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Teen Titans]]'' as a powerup move, although she missed out "Metrion, Zinthos." Also, the physical appearance of her "main" version, features her with grey skin like in the cartoon.
** Starro's physical appearance and his position in Superman's alien zoo are reminiscent of his portrayal in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''. One of the costumes you can get via interplay between the iOS and console versions is a ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' outfit [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOtgRvRcjsQ for Batman]].
** Scarecrow injects a fighter with fear toxin, which causes them to experience a nightmare identical to the Scarecrow levels in ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Arkham Asylum]]''.
** The Flash's supermove bears resemblance to his assault on Brainiac-Luthor in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', notably showing a clip of the Flash speeding across a body of water framed exactly as it was in the cartoon.
** Some S.T.A.R. Labs mission titles include:
*** Cyborg Mission 130 "Injustice For All", named after episode title from the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' cartoon.
*** Raven Mission 176 "Titans Go", named after Robin's catchphrase in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' cartoon.
** Once [[spoiler:Regime Sinestro's ring is taken from him, his non-Lantern clothing is the same as the character's classic blue/black suited comic appearance]].
** One of Killer Frost's mid-fight taunts is "[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague You're a beautiful man. I think I'll keep you.]]"
*** Similarly, her line for cancelling a grab is "Hey watch the hands!"
** If two Doomsdays in default and secondary costumes fight each other in the Fortress of Solitude, the one in the background is wearing his old green jumpsuit from the comics. This "Containment Doomsday" is later made playable.
** Superman tackling Doomsday into space, then smashing him into the ground is similar to the case in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday'' and ''{{Series/Smallville}}''.
** One of the environment interactions that Superman (or any other power character) can perform at the Metropolis museum stage is the flinging of a green 1930's automobile. Don't blink and it's an exact reenactment of [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/5a/Action_Comics_1.jpg/250px-Action_Comics_1.jpg Action Comics #1.]]
** One of Hal Jordan's ring construct moves, is a [[Film/GreenLantern gatling gun]].
** The exterior of the Fortress of Solitude appears to be styled after the one in the Christopher Reeve films.
** At the completion of the "Classic Battle" mode, Regime Superman is defeated by [[spoiler:the player kicking him into the Phantom Zone. When we cut to him again, [[Film/SupermanII he's trapped in a floating mirror-like object.]] ]]
** Explained in her introductory video, ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'' is the reason for Batgirl's involvement in the game.
** The Player 2 colors on Batman's default costume make it a dead ringer for the [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Nolan batsuit.]]
** General Zod appears to be modelled fairly closely character-wise to his depiction in ''Film/{{Superman II}}''. Using several of his most famous lines. Such as KneelBeforeZod of course. He travels to Earth with the intent to conquer it from the moon, like he did in the film, in his battle intro. And his victory sequence repurposes "I win. I always win." though in a more triumphant way than [[VictoryIsBoring how it was used in the film]].
** This is [[ComicBook/KingdomCome not the first time]] the Joker has killed ComicBook/LoisLane which lead to his own death and Earth turning into a CrapsackWorld.
** One of General Zod's moves is "Absolute Power", which is also the name of the episode in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' which features the resident Zod {{Expy}}.
** Regime Superman calls Insurgency Batman an [[Film/TheDarkKnight agent of chaos]] later in the game.
** Batman still hasn't gotten over [[ComicBook/IdentityCrisis Zatanna]] [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind-wiping him]].
--->'''Zatanna''': Guess I thought you'd forgive me.\\
'''Batman''': [[WhatTheHellHero You guessed wrong.]]
** When Nightwing and Hawkgirl attack Arkham, Harley activates something that looks a lot like [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman the Batwave]].
** The app version of the game gives Sinestro a Green Lantern suit as an alternate skin. The specific version of Sinestro that the suit represents however, is not from any of the comics, but the ''[[Film/GreenLantern 2011 Green Lantern]]'' film.
** Bit of a stretch to call it a "gag," but Beast Boy dying from a nuke is a sad way to homage how his original teammates (including his adoptive mother) in the Comicbook/DoomPatrol were killed.

* DownerBeginning: The situation in the alternate universe is kicked off by [[spoiler:the Joker managing to destroy Metropolis]]. The Story Mode begins with a shot of said city in ruins and police department saddened, and Batman interrogates a laughing Joker angrily about the whereabouts of the nuclear bombs. Suddenly, Superman breaks in and, in spite of Batman's pleas, kills the Joker in revenge for his wife and unborn son, whom he killed unknowingly due to the effect of the fear gas inflicted by Joker - and things go downhill from that point on...

Then, after [[AssholeVictim he slams her face-first into the wedding cake]], [[SympatheticMurderer she snaps and cuts his throat with the cake knife]], then checks herself into Arkham, where she stays, still in her blood-stained wedding dress.]]

* MoralityChainBeyondTheGrave: Alternate Universe Joker mind controls Superman and forces him to kill Lois and their baby as well as level Metropolis. This causes him to go off the deep end and instal himself as Earth's God Emperor. Several times he tries to justify his actions as what Lois would have wanted, though the main-universe Superman is having none of it:
