Movement. Actual storytelling. Pacing, and what is more, the desire to see the resolution of what’s occurred this issue. Injustice, while lacking in most ways, makes good use of the serial format and returns to that form, finally, with this issue. Luthor, also, returns to form in this issue, as the despicable villain he’s most recognizable. In sending Bizarro to the Fortress, he’s signed his death warrant, for surely Doomsday or Regime, inadvertently, will kill him. A three-way match-up between Regime, Bizarro, and Doomsday is intriguing, and not a brawl to missed, if you’re a proponent of such things. The only drawback to the coming fight is that the outcome is clear. If the cover of the issue doesn’t give it away, then any knowledge of the video game Injustice is based on does. Occasionally, this series surpasses the morass it willingly sloughs through, and one will just have to wait to see such an occasion is upon us once more.
