Injustice: Gods Among Us #2 | Writer: Tom Taylor | Art: Jheremy Raapack | Colors: Andrew Elder | Letters: Wes Abbott |Publisher: DC Comics | Price: 99¢ | From my column THE PULL LIST @Forces of Geek.com

 

The events in the last issue and in this one are pushing Superman towards a fall from grace in the worst possible way. Friends are dying, loved ones are in peril and The Joker is holding all of the cards.

Suffice it to say, Tom Taylor’s impressive story telling has thus far heightened the gravity of the situation the Man of Steel is facing. Jheremy Raapack’s art direction delivered some great moments such as Batman telling Flash to run faster so no one can see Flash carrying him. Speaking of Flash, there was another great visual moment where one minute he is vegging out on his couch in Central City, and the next minute, he’s in Metropolis and already investigating.

It was the perfect way to not only show how fast he really is, but to show Barry Allen’s personality. There is a lot of content packed into these digital shorts which makes it disappointing when you get to the last page.

In a way, Tom Taylor is giving fans a story filled with those speculative “what if” scenarios you shared with your friends. For example, what if Superman is trapped in a room full of Kryptonite and Doomsday is blocking the only exit?
