Backstory and setting[]

On an alternate world, Joker has destroyed Metropolis with a nuclear weapon that went off when Superman was tricked into killing Lois Lane and her unborn child. Batman interrogates Joker on where he got the nuke until the interrogation is crashed by a saddened Superman who avenges Lois and those were killed by killing Joker. Since this incident, Superman decides to protect Earth his way by taking over it. The superheroes are divided into two groups: the One Earth Regime led by Superman in his position as High Councillor and the Insurgency led by Batman.

Five years after the Injustice: Gods Among Us Comic, the Insurgency discovers an alternate universe where Joker's plan did not succeed. The Insurgency transports several members of the alternate universe's Justice League (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Green Lantern) to their world in order to help them to defeat the Regime. Unbeknownst to them, Batman and the Joker were also accidentally teleported along. Batman and the Joker are confronted by the Regime in a dystopian Metropolis, but Batman uses his gear to help them both escape, where they both go their separate ways.

Having arrived in this world's Gotham City and attempting to learn what has happened, Aquaman heads to Atlantis to see what he can dig up in the Atlantean Archives, while Green Lantern travels to Ferris Aircraft to find a recharging station for his ring. After discovering and defeating Raven and Cyborg and subsequently freeing Deathstroke there, Green Lantern returns to Gotham City where he faces Sinestro and his own counterpart Yellow Lantern, who has joined the Sinestro Corps. He escapes with Wonder Woman and Green Arrow where they subsequently meet the Batman of this world.

Aquaman travels to Atlantis to research the archives, learning of Superman's descent into tyranny. Learning that Atlantis has agreed to a treaty that puts Superman in total control of Atlantis, Aquaman rejects it, defeating the Flash, Shazam, and his own counterpart before Ares appears. Acknowledging that he is weakened by the lack of conflict, Ares sends Aquaman to join the Insurgents, which includes this alternate timeline's Lex Luthor who never indulged in criminal activities and is in fact one of Superman's best friends and secret benefactor to the Insurgency. Batman explains that he has a kryptonite weapon that can defeat Superman in the Batcave, but it requires DNA samples from the other four heroes to unlock, as Batman wanted to ensure he could not make the decision to stop Superman by himself. The heroes from the other universe became necessary after Green Arrow died trying to reason with a grieving Superman and the other three aligned with his new regime.

The displaced Batman is captured by the Regime members Yellow Lantern and Hawkgirl after being injured by Joker. The Joker allies himself with the Harley Quinn of this world. After Harley's gang, the Joker Clan, is attacked by Regime forces led by Nightwing and Hawkgirl, they are rescued by the heroes. Before being locked up by the Insurgency's Batman, Joker reveals that the Regime has Batman.

The Insurgency travels to the Batcave to recover the weapon. Green Arrow helps to fight against Killer Frost, Solomon Grundy, Black Adam, and Wonder Woman where they are successful in claiming the weapon. When Superman later arrives at the Batcave moments later, he learns of their plot and makes plans to flush them out. The Insurgency watches Superman's press conference where he reveals that he will have Batman executed at Stryker's Island causing the Insurgency to take action.

Meanwhile, back in the Justice League's universe, Superman, the Flash and Cyborg attempt to recover their comrades, but their attempt accidentally sends Cyborg to the alternate reality. Cyborg overhears Lex Luthor and Deathstroke discussing plans to defeat Superman, prompting a brief clash before the other displaced heroes explain the situation to him.

Cyborg begins his infiltration where he fights Catwoman and his own counterpart. Afterwards, Deathstroke takes out Flash and Shazam and then heads to Ferris Aircraft where he defeats Killer Frost and Wonder Woman.

With Cyborg and Deathstroke having taken control of the teleportation system on the Watchtower, the heroes stage a break-in on Stryker's Island and rescue the displaced Batman from his planned execution. At the same time, Joker convinces Harley Quinn to release him. While Batman had defeated Catwoman, he then fights Nightwing (who is Batman's own son Damian Wayne who stopped being his son when he killed Dick Grayson) and then frees Green Arrow from Raven's control. Superman then confronts both Batmen as the Insurgency's Batman tries to reason with Superman. Before Superman can attack, both Batmen disappear. Realizing that the Watchtower has been taken over, Superman flies to it only for Deathstroke's bombs to have destroyed it and that everyone on board it was teleported off in time.

Hours earlier, Lex Luthor is prepping the weapon to be used on his army. Upon attaching it to his armor, Lex Luthor dons it and flies towards Stryker's Island and is attacked by Joker. After Lex Luthor defeats Harley Quinn, Joker plans to violently punish her for her failure only for Lex Luthor to defeat Joker. While Harley Quinn and the Joker Clan have Joker locked up again, Lex Luthor makes it to Stryker's Island where he lures away Black Adam and Hawkgirl. After shooting down Black Adam, Lex Luthor defeats Hawkgirl and tries to take her Nth Metal Belt only for him to fight and defeat Shazam. Lex Luthor's attempt to use the kryptonite weapon against Superman is stopped by Shazam as Superman slams into Lex Luthor enough to badly injure him and break his armor. Superman feels betrayed by the one man he trusted. When Lex Luthor claimed that Superman herded humanity like sheep, Superman puts Lex Luthor out of his misery. Overhearing humanity's newfound fear of him, Superman takes off in anger.

Moments later at the Fortress of Solitude, Superman tells the Regime members present that he has decided to destroy Gotham City and Metropolis to demonstrate the chaos that would arise in his absence. When Shazam protests this and mentions that Lois wouldn't allow it, Superman murders him with his heat vision and asks if anyone else has anything to say which nobody does. Superman orders Cyborg and Raven to take control of all modes of broadcasting, has Sinestro rally his foot soldiers, and orders Flash and Yellow Lantern prep Doomsday for battle. After everyone leaves, Yellow Lantern tells Solomon Grundy to bury Shazam and tells Flash that Shazam is a casualty in the war. Shazam's death causes the Flash to finally accept that the Regime has gone too far and defect to the Insurgents where he starts by defeating Yellow Lantern and Solomon Grundy and even saving some rebels from Sinestro. Then Flash had to defeat Green Arrow in order for him and the Insurgency to listen to him about the Regime's next plot.

With the Kryptonite weapon rendered useless, the dimensionally-displaced heroes suggest recruiting the Superman of their world to stop this one, only to be interrupted by a Regime attack on their hideout. After her fight with Bane, Wonder Woman is teleported to Themyscira by Ares who reveals that Superman's plan will be carried out by an army of Amazons. He desires to stop this plan as Superman's victory will mean an end to the conflict that empowers him. After Ares leaves with Wonder Woman taking his advice, Raven appears where she states that Superman's campaign will help hasten Trigon's arrival. Wonder Woman manages to defeat Raven. At one of Themyscira's ports, Wonder Woman defeats her counterpart before convincing the Amazons to return to their former role as protectors rather than conquerors.

As the battle begins, Batman convinces his counterpart to have faith in their Superman just as he had faith in the other displaced heroes. Superman arrives in this world in time as both Batmen brief him on the situation. Arriving in Gotham City where the fight between the Insurgency and the Regime is being held, Superman freezes Black Adam, defeats Sinestro, and convinces Yellow Lantern to surrender. As Superman fights Aquaman in Metropolis, Wonder Woman's Amazons hold back the armies of Atlantis. After defeating Doomsday in the Fortress of Solitude and trapping him in the Phantom Zone, Superman confronts and defeats his counterpart, rejecting his other self's attempt to defend his actions as enforcing authority over an unworthy humanity and informing him that Lois would be afraid and disgusted at what he has become.

With the other Superman's defeat, the rest of the Regime are either rounded up or turn themselves in. The displaced Joker is returned to his reality by Harley Quinn and the displaced Batman. The displaced Green Lantern hands his counterpart and Sinestro over to the Guardians of the Universe. The displaced Wonder Woman dethrones her counterpart who is taken away. The displaced Cyborg visits the grave of Lex Luthor. The other Superman is placed in a prison where he is exposed to lights emitting red sun radiation, negating his powers. The displaced Superman acknowledges that he could have become his counterpart under the same circumstances, but Batman merely notes that he hopes Superman never has to learn what he could be capable of while vowing to be there if Superman ever falls that far. As Superman and Batman leave, the final scene shows a close-up of the other Superman in his prison cell, his eyes glowing, indicating he still has some degree of his power.


Injustice: Gods Among Us was first announced on May 31, 2012,[3] shortly before the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Developer Ed Boon revealed plans to offer depth and promised a rich amount of single-player content and layered features for tournament players.[4] Similar to Boon's previous DC-related title, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, there are restrictions on how violent the game can be, though Boon states he is planning to push the T rating, replacing violence with "crazy, over-the-top action."

Like Mortal KombatInjustice: Gods Among Us is a 2D fighting game featuring numerous DC characters. Characters will be organized according to skill features: Power Users and Gadget Users. Each type can interact with their environments differently. All characters will have several unique abilities and special moves. The game will feature a single-player component in addition to multiplayer and tournament features.

The game also features the light, medium, and heavy attack array traditional to fighting games. These attacks can trigger various move sets, can chain together to form combos, and will gradually fill up the player's Super Meter. Characters will also have "Character Trait" buttons that activate unique fighting styles and abilities.

While modeled somewhat on Mortal Kombat, Injustice features a new blocking system more akin to Street Fighter and a new "Wager" system. During a combo, the defending player can activate it by pressing forward and (X for PS3)(A for Xbox 360) (ZR for Wii U). At this point, both players place a hidden bet using a portion of their super meters. The highest bidder wins the clash, either rewarding health or finishing off the devastating combo. The Wager immediately ends the combo and triggers unique character dialogue before initiating combat again.

Game Stages will feature destructible environments and character costumes will deteriorate over the course of the battle. Also in the style of Mortal Kombat, the characters will receive notable battle damage, such as exposed muscle, although it will not reach the extremities of the aforementioned series. Some Stages will feature objects that players can use. The Batmobile, for example, can fire rockets at players in the Batcave location.
