The artwork in this comic is in my opinion gorgeous! It jumps from the page in bright arcs of colour with depth to the characters.

There’s a simplicity to the opening pages of this comic. Clark captured and in a red sun cell, begins a dialogue with Bruce summing up what led to the meltdown of Superman that led to Injustice,  he lists a few of the casualties, and sarcastically wishes Batman luck now that he won the battle. Yet within that dialogue lies the philosophical viewpoints of how at least this universes and many of the multiverses of Batman and Superman.  Jump to a healthy dose of Harley Quinn providing her usual mix of psychological insight and much needed comic relief. Of course it seems no matter the reality Harley is destined to be a member of the Suicide Squad. And speaking of Fate there are appearances by Dr. FATE and Black Canary and Green Arrow in this comic as well.

Much like the original Injustice series there are mature themes, and some darkness in this comic. Yet credit the creators with making a series that has a balance of fun and action as well as broody darkness. I enjoyed this first issue a lot and will definitely continue the series.

Rating: 8 /10
