The Golden and Silver Ages were not the best of times for DC characters.

Am I the only one who thinks that resistance to the JL's rule cropped up a bit too fast? That scene with the Australian protest where they kill that teen hero was just a few issues in, which seemed odd to me as they hadn't really done anything all that wrong yet (in fact, that murder was probably the first truly unforgivable thing they do). If all war had just been ended I think people would be mostly happy, at least for a while.

Wow, next week's issue (#31) looks like it'll be intense and brutal. Batman vs Cyborg and Batwoman vs Hawkgirl? Yes please.

[up][up]Given the manner in which the League went about it, I can see how it would spark protest.

[up][up] I'm getting a vibe that Batman raids the Watchtower and fights Cyborg in order to obtain the necessary technology and schematics to construct his cross-dimensional teleportation machine. Batwoman, Batgirl, and the rest of his team sacrifice themselves to distract the Regime and buy him time to lock on to the Prime League and send them to the Injustice world. Somewhere along the line, Catwoman decides to defect to the Regime but is discovered by Batman, who is forced to prematurely execute his plan before she may - intentionally or not - leak it to Superman.

[up][up] Admit it, you were smiling a bit at the scene where Congress was forced to do its damn job at Power Ring-point. waii

[up][up] I don't think either of them will die in the next couple of issues, actually. The solicit text for #32 says that "Batman and his team" escape, and the text for #34 indicates Batwoman is still alive by then.

[up] Well, then it looks like our Resistance can survive a little longer for the moment. smile

Seriously speaking though, the nature of these comics being prequels mean that there's gotta be some critical reason of why the other members of Bat-family are absent without mention from the first game. Likewise, Batman has to progress towards learning about the Prime universe and inventing his teleporter somehow.

[up] Oh, I agree. Batwoman and Batgirl are toast for sure. Plastic Man, Black Lighting (if he ever shows back up) and Hawkman are too.

[up] Plastic Man and his son are actually accounted for: at the end of one of the annuals they decide to go into hiding rather than join Batman. If they're lucky, they'd likely have come out following the fall of the Regim to assist Insurgent Batman in rebuilding the world. This could give them a reason a appear the upcoming second game.

But yeah, I'm anticipating the fates of Batwoman and Batgirl to be two of the comic's last tearjeakers before ending with a Hope Spot as Batman teleports the Prime heroes. Maybe they'll even make references to Justice League Crisis On Two Earths.

Problem is, as we've seen, the Regime isn't any better at running things.

[up][up] Ah, I'd forgotten that about Plastic Man.

I wonder how the Authority would respond to the Regime's rule.

Jul 16th 2016 at 5:29:39 PM

On that subject, have The Elite shown up in the Injustice continuity?

Are you kidding.

Those guys got stomped by a Superman who was only pretending to decide he wanted to kill them.

What do you think a Clark who really did decide to stop holding back would do?

Once again, wokka wokka!

If anything I'd like to see Deathstroke in the comics, and how exactly did he wound up being captured and on Cyborg's torture table at the start of the game.

If I may make a potentially embarrassing confession, I find Bond-villain!Slade from the cartoon much more interesting than assassin!Deathstroke from the comics.

Actually, I was just wondering whether they'd line up with this Superman in the first place.

Jul 16th 2016 at 8:15:13 PM

[up][up][up] Issue 35! From the sound of things he gets captured while raiding S.T.A.R. Labs, or while fighting in the all-but-certain Final Battle.

Aww yeah Tom Taylor is coming back to write Injustice 2 comics. My Nargggh's are ready

Jul 22nd 2016 at 9:39:13 PM

[up] I wonder if all the new characters in 2 will actually be a plot point. Like, a bunch of people have to step up and become heroes since so many others were killed. Blue Beetle, for example, might not have been active in the Injusticeverse until now.
