Who would have thought when DC first started publishing their Injustice: Gods Among Us prequel comic that the series would eventually span several years, five volumes and hundreds of digital chapters by the time it finally concluded? This series certainly ranks among the most comprehensive prequels ever conceived. But there’s a reason this comic has proven so popular over the years, and that appeal remains in the series finale.
Issue #20 carries Injustice: Year Five right up to the events of the game. Writer Brian Buccellato creates a tense “ticking clock” situation as Batman and Luthor struggle to bring the alternate universe Justice League into their world even as a vengeful Superman finally discovers Batman’s hidden fortress. Even though the outcome of this battle is preordained, Buccellato has no trouble generating plenty of suspense along the way.
