Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Read Just finished. I can't wait to start volume 2!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A story that's fun, but lacks any depth From the art to the plot, it's noticeable that this isn't as serious as the major DCU series . It makes sense, after all; it's based on a button-masher fighting game. The colours pop and the overdone costumes make it look like a Saturday morning cartoon; a large change of pace from the darker Batman and Justice League material I'm used to reading. Superman is attempting to take over and govern the world after a huge personal tragedy. Heroes and villains alike all throw their sticks into center ice and seem to randomly pick sides. For an arc so big, the focus is more on hilarious one-liners and the story lacks any kind of depth. Once you figure that out and stop searching for any kind of motivation, emotion, or rationality, it's actually not that bad. The story moves from battle to battle, with little time to see the characters reflect on their actions with others. It's quick pace sucks you in, but at the same time the story feels hollow. It's saving grace is it's hilarity. If you've played and enjoyed Injustice: Gods Among Us, then it's an excellent prequel book. Otherwise, I'd probably skip it.
