'Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four, Vol. 2' by Brian Buccellato concludes the Year of the Gods story-line. Superheroes against Greek gods? I'm in.
This series is a prequel to the video game. I've read and earlier volume, but not anything too recent, but I was able to pick up what was happening. In the world of the game, Superman has become a tyrant and Batman is out to stop him. The game is also a fighting video game, so there are lots of characters squaring off against each other.
Everyone is cranky with Superman. Zeus is also on Earth now and he's not happy either. Lex Luthor, Batman, and Wonder Woman are trying to stop Zeus, so they enlist his brother Poseidon. That turns out badly and Wonder Woman's home of Themyscira is endangered.
In a backup story, Plastic Man shows up to break in to a high security prison. I liked this story quite a bit, but I've always liked Plastic Man.
There aren't a lot of extras included. The story is ok, but since it's a tie in to a fighting game, it seems like characters in this series sometimes don't seem to act true to their nature. This series seems to be more for fans of the game than fans of these characters.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
