* How is Black Adam in the game in the first place? A year comic clearly shows that he was killed.


* The scene where Superman kills Capt. Marv-*sigh* I mean, Shazam, makes no sense. Let me count the ways:
** Superman grabs Shazam by the throat, and unlike literally any other continuity, this version of the character doesn't simply grab Superman's hand and pry his fingers off of him, since pretty much everywhere the two are physical equals, or near enough to it. Or punch Superman off of him. Or grab Superman's wrist and spin him into a wall. Or anything but stand there like an idiot.

* The scene where Superman kills Capt. Marv-*sigh* I mean, Shazam, Shazam makes no sense. Let me count the ways:

Or punch Superman off of him. Or grab Superman's wrist and spin him into a wall. Or anything but stand there like an idiot.



** This version of Cap, I mean, Shazam can shoot magical lightning. Why didn't he just grab Superman's wrist and pump him full of magical lightning right then and there?
** Superman freezes Shazam's mouth shut to keep him from saying the magic word. Even ignoring the above issues, why is a thing coating of ice preventing Shazam from talking? He's superhumanly strong and virtually invulnerable to harm. The ice should have broke the second he tried to open his mouth. Or if it was that much trouble, both of his hands were free, he could have simply punched the ice and broken his mouth free.

** Superman freezes Shazam's mouth shut to keep him from saying the magic word. Even ignoring the above issues, why is a thing thin coating of ice preventing Shazam from talking?

Or if it was that much trouble, both of his hands were free, he could have simply punched the ice and broken his mouth free.


** How it works varies from writer to writer. The simplest explanation used in some versions is that what the Wizard does is magically copy the powers of the gods and heroes that make up the word Shazam, but either requires the permission or assistance of the deity/hero in question to do so. Shazam then gives said powers to Billy directly, so that the power comes from the Wizard and not the gods. That would explain how Hercules can be killed and Billy is still as strong as ever. It wouldn't explain how Zeus can simply de-power Billy, or why if Billy is as strong as Hercules, who could beat up Superman and Wonder Woman, that Superman could casually kill Billy later.

** Then Shazam starts to say his name, supposedly to call down the lightning . . . but what good would that do? Okay, you'd get a blast of powerful magical lightning that would probably hit Superman, but it would also hit Shazam and turn him back into Billy. So unless it completely blew Superman away from him, you'd have an angry Superman still holding a moral Billy by the throat.

** Superman is shooting heat vision into Shazam's eyes to kill him. It's a semi-plausible way to kill Shazam, but again, both of Shazam's arms are free. Why didn't he block the heat vision with his presumably more durable hands or arms? Why didn't he cover Superman's eyes with his hands and pump a few giga-watts of magic lightning into Superman's eyes?
** In this game, Shazam can literally teleport. It's almost like the creators purposefully wrote him like a weaker, dumber version of the character so that he could be killed off in a really cheap way.

*Injustice!Batman believes in though shall not kill beyond all reason. Why then does he hire Deathstroke The Terminator for a mission in Year 5 and not even attempt to restrain him from murdering tons of mooks and Metamorpho on the mission? (Plus why being hired when the game states he's not worked for the insurgency before at all.)

Added DiffLines:

**One pill has been enough to beat down Superman since they were introduced. Ma Kent could restrain him from his rage induced beat down of Green Arrow. Alfred put him down for the count at end of year one. And its occasionally pointed out that the badass normals just have to be better fighters to keep up with supers before the green pill were invented and thus kick ass even more when green pilled. Overdosed Montoya may be less effective than normal not more since she was dying from it and she's not a skilled fighter as Batman anyway. Bottom line: Bats was extremely pissed off and motivated to win that fight beyond all reason.


** They're automated cars like in DeadSpace3 (which would also explain why none of the cars react to the fact that Gotham is being razed to the ground by Regime forces).

Added DiffLines:

** Leave aside what you know from the comics because it doesn't necessarily apply here. What we know from the events of the game and the prequel comic book is that Batman absolutely refuses to kill and that is a ''major'' catalyst for the story. Batman refuses to kill the Joker, then he judges Superman when he does it and then later when he kills the parademons. If Batman had been a little more lenient and understanding in the beginning, Superman might not have gone to such extremes. The reason they don't give the switch to Batman is that they know he won't use it and might in fact destroy it so no one else can.

Added DiffLines:

*** Sinestro is a patient player. As the comic proves, he's the one pulling Superman's strings and not the other way around. Why do all the job when he can use Superman to do the work for him? Not only he gets to pull his old enemies to his side, he also feeds his power with the fear Superman's Regime generates. It's pretty clear that he intends to further manipulate Superman into bringing his order to more worlds.

Added DiffLines:

** Not only are there means which Superman could use to bring Lois and possibly the baby back to life, Superman has to know like what, 20 different ways to time travel? Why not just go back in time and stop his past self from ever killing Lois and destroying Metropolis in the first place?

Added DiffLines:


* Why is Joker the only one who's Batcomputer file got enhanced so that anyone could read it? Why not Harley Quinn or Solomon Grundy or even the Batsuit readout? The curiosity is just killing this troper. Is there any website where I could see the screen designs?

Added DiffLines:

** "What're you looking at? This? Oh, I shaved and fixed my hair. What's the big deal?" He's literally the same person, and no one in Atlantis knows about the parallel universe yet anyway, so they wouldn't even consider the possibility of a duplicate.

Added DiffLines:

** I think that he just plain said that he should be denied the turn.


* This is the two ton, pink and purple polka dotted cybernetic elephant in the room: With the life Superman has lived, the access he has to science, magic and faith, witnessing cosmic horrors after cosmic horrors defeated time after by good people doing great acts in the majesty of the human, not Kryptonian, but human spiritů
How could he just give up and accept the death of his love and his unborn child?
How could Superman just give up?

** In a similar vein, why does everyone act as though Gordon's cancer is incurable when both sides have access to a whole host of magic users?

Added DiffLines:

* What is Green Lantern's arcade ending supposed to be about? It came out of nowhere and was never followed up on again. Is that supposed to be a reference to something in the comics or something?
