Anybody reading the digital Injustice: Gods Among Us series?

It's not the greatest thing ever, but it definitely has had some quality moments and absolutely is a great companion to the game.

One thing, though, that has struck me about it, in conjunction with the game: An unhinged Superman can be really, really scary. I mean, absolutely creepy on any number of levels.

It's not that we haven't seen the archetype before -- there's been plenty of Ultramans and the like over the years.

But there's something really, really creepy about an actual Superman who is...basically...well...he's...crazy. It's...weird.

If you're playing the game, I do recommend reading the digital series -- again, it's not perfect, but it is a solid complement to the game.

The story doesn't look too bad from what I've seen, but the rushed artwork is really hurting the storytelling. No matter how good it ends up being, Injustice is only going to be remembered for one thing:

Yeah, artwork is most times pretty off but for the most part I am enjoying this.

Ew.

Instead of an iron pipe, is he really battling the gum disease "gingivitis"?

but the opposite can also be true, since they've had some big names like Kevin Maguire draw some issues too...

This was pretty cool, not sure how close it is to the comic though.

the comic is the story of what happens between the death of lois and the destruction of Metropolis and the start of the game.

I just caught up with this, and it's not bad.

There are a number of similarities to Kingdom Come, just going in a little different direction.
