The Injustice: Gods Among Us video game was one of the most popular fighting titles of the early 10’s along the likes of Super Street Fighter IV and Mortal Kombat 9. The plot for Injustice: Gods Among Us was very dark since it involved the Joker tricking Superman into killing Lois Lane along with her unborn child. The tragic events regarding Superman’s role in the accidental demise of Lois Lane and his unborn wife drove him into madness. Superman eventually became a merciless dictator and the main villain of Injustice: Gods Among Us after being unable to cope with Lois Lane’s loss; along with the destruction of Metropolis at the hands of the Joker. Superman was extremely dangerous in Injustice: Gods Among Us since he became the High Councilor Of Earth and destroyed those who opposed his will. Along his side Superman had allies who served his will such as: Wonder Woman, Enchantress and even the Joker.
The resistance against the One Earth authoritarian regime was known as the Insurgency which was lead by Batman. The Insurgency also consisted of Catwoman Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Deathstroke and other popular heroes from the DC universe. The cinematic storytelling aspect of Injustice: Gods Among Us probably the strongest feature the game had. While the gameplay for Injustice: God Among Us holds up pretty well today; at some point a film adaptation of Netherealm Studios fighting game had to be made. While there some people who are hoping for a animated film adaptation of Injustice 2 that something that might possibly happen years later down the line; especially since Injustice 2 only four years old at the moment. Seeing that Injustice: Gods Among Us is getting a animated film series eight years shows how popular the game itself was back in 2013.
