INJUSTICE 2 (2017)

 

 

INJUSTICE 2 is a fighting video game based on the DC Universe, published by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. It is the sequel to INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, in which Superman is a tyrant. The storyline centers around Batman's attempt to restore society after the fall of Superman's regime; however, the arrivals of the newly formed supervillain group "The Society" and the alien Brainiac forces Batman to consider freeing the imprisoned Superman to help overturn the threats.
   The game contains an Arcade Ladder (also called Arcade Mode), in which a single player battles a ladder of combatants in a bid to reach the final level.
   Once that status is attained, it is revealed that the evil Brainiac is defeated by a doppelgänger who turns out to be Brainiac 5 in disguise. The Coluan has travelled back in time to beat the villain and restore the good name of his race.
   Upon his return to the 31st century, he expects to be chastised by Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy for stealing a time bubble, but feels that all will be forgiven. He signs off with the rallying cry of "Long Live the Legion!”
   ** Note that in the INJUSTICE 2 comic, the Legion is brought in by Booster Gold to rescue Superboy and Wonder Girl, both of whom were left for dead in the vacuum of space by Brainiac.
