For its first trick, Injustice does something that few fighting games ever even attempt to do: tell an interesting story. What if Superman lost faith in humanity and, with his near-infinite power, decided it was time to stop protecting and start ruling?
As heavy as it sounds, Injustice still finds time for the same kind of action, adventure, and humor that made the Justice League animated series such a treat. Characters seem to relate to each other even if they are not directly from the same story line in the D.C. universe. The epic story that Netherrelms puts into this game can be its own movie that should be done. It would compete with The Avengers and make Iron Man poop in his robot panties.
