I think Superman is going to convince some of the other heroes (flash, ww among others) that they need to be more forceful with criminals, I think they will agree and as the 5 years passes they will turn more into dictators. Batman I think will start his resistance to overthrow them becuause he knows they are getting out of control, but the "dark" jla will probably be running things, thus the "batman wanted" in the trailer and batmans line of "weve been hiding in the shadows too long" Flashs line in the trailer implies that maybe hes reconsidering his allegiance to superman and is beginning to see its wrong, im thinking some heroes on supes team will turn on him at the end.

Injustice appears to center around the detonation of a nuke but it seems that Superman just takes over on his own initiative. Story seems more similar to DC's Kingdom Come story....a story that came out b/f Marvel did the Civil War.

My Theory of the Story Mode:
Joker and Harley Quinn plant a nuclear bomb which was Lex Luthors idea. The nuke explodes destroying Metropolis and its people, including Lois Lane and Baby Supes. He goes to Joker and tries to kill him. Batman stops him and then Superman says that hes going to kill every villain because all they do is hurt people. Some of the Justice League like Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Aquaman go with him to kill the villains while others like Nightwing, Catwoman, Green Arrow and Black Canary (If she makes it) try and stop Superman from killing. Villains like Lex Luthor, Bane and Deathstroke may join Batman for a little bit but have their own secret alliance. Superman and Batmans teams both try to recruit other heroes while they try and kill the villains. In the end Batman and his team and Superman and his team have a huge all out battle and the final boss (Whoever it is) take advantage of this and then you battle the final boss. Afterwards the effect of the war get to Superman and he realises what he did. He returns to normal and helps the others.

Batmans Team:

From Start:
Batman
Nightwing
Catwoman
Green Arrow
Cyborg
*Black Canary
*Raven
*Zatanna

Supermans Team:
From Start:
Superman
Wonder Woman
The Flash
Green Lantern
Aquaman
*Martian Manhunter
*Captain Marvel

Villains Team:
Lex Luthor (May join with Batman for the start)
Bane (See Lex)
*Captain Cold
*Sinestro
*Ares
*Black Adam
*Black Manta
*Circe

Jokers Mini Team:
Joker
Harley Quinn


By themselves: (Might join either team)
Solomon Grundy (Might join Supermans team)
Deathstroke (Dont know maybe Lex's team)
*Doomsday (Might be sub boss)

+ Another villain

This is probably totally off anyways but oh well

The sad part of that is that the new warriors weren't in experienced they were trained by captain America and had other training as the leader of that team had been trained by his Marin body guard. But marvel had been doing a lot of stuff since the movies came about that makes it seem like it's arguing with it's self, with what the heroes should be so what ever they want . they were trying to one up one of the former stories that dc did with kingdom come
set up formerly which was repeated in the JLU animated series . their version of the Heroes versus the government. and it still didn't hold up to well after it happened.


And Night Thrasher (Dwayne Taylor) of the new warriors was born in 1985 with in the comic's that's stated on his grave stone. That's hardly a teen.

Thanks, this kinda sounds like kingdom come, which i think is what Injustice is really based off. Since Lois was killed by Joker in kingdom come, i wont be surprised if she is killed in Injustice. Plus I wonder if Shazam will sacrifice himself like he did in Kingdom Come.

My predictions are very similar to yours. The recent trailer suggest that Flash is on Superman's team but seems to regret it....I'm thinking Flash might switch sides as the story progresses. Also, since NR suggested they hope to build a franchise off these games, I'm guessing teams Batman and Superman reconcile near the end....maybe they all come together for a common end-game type enemy.

the one thing they haven't explained yet ( and they say they will ) is how the characters, including the non-superpowered ones, can fight on equal footing.

they have said on numerous occasions that they will explain it. so it has to go beyond "it's just a game" or "fighting game logic."

Superman can always be depowered by Kryptonite. However, others like WW, Flash, GL, etc. would NOT be affected by Kryptonite.

so I don't think it will be as simple as Kryptonite making Supes weak. it has to be more "global" and far reaching to affect all the characters.

I'm thinking either magic, reality-altering power, or an alternate universe/dimension.

Even though the "HUGE" trailer didn't really satisfy me, i think the weekly comic will. Hopefully we get to see more characters in issue 3.

I love the weekly comic. Hoping the Aquaman predictions for issue 4 are true.

Until we get the May solicitations, it unconfirmed. Wait until the middle of February when the solicitations come out. But from my guess i would think so. The Arkham series is still going.

I can't find the video I seen that helped me find out about these comics, but the guy in the video said they would come out with a new one EVERY Tuesday until the game comes out, cause I looked at my iTunes balance and was like .99 a week? I need to go get an iTunes card haha. He also said in the video that it'd be like 3 digital ones put together to make one printed edition every time.

I just started comics last year, and I'm not far into them. I started reading for the arkham asylum pre arkham city comic. Does arkham unhinged have anything to do with the Arkham games or are they just called that? I only read the prequel to arkham city digital, but would like to buy copies. I know most things going digital, but I don't like them saying comics need to go digital. What about having them 50 years from now, of course they're in good shape, they're in my computer? haha. I don't know, I just don't like I end up double dipping a lot with music and comics on iTunes, since they only thought of putting digital copies with movies.
