Building (Critical) Consensus: Injustice: Gods Among Us

injustice-gods-among-us-box-artI don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a DC Comics guy. I feel as though that would make a good t-shirt. Specifically, I’m a Superman guy. I know I mentioned this one last week. Now, we finally get our chance to pit Superman against Batman. Oh, and most of the other DC Comics regulars also appear in NetherRealm’s new fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us.

We’ve gotten a DC Comics fighting game from a Mortal Kombat developer before. That was the entirely forgettable Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe by Midway. With NetherRealm now at the helm of Mortal Kombat and having just released the best story in fighting game history in Mortal Kombat (9), could they do something special with Injustice?

Superman vs. Batman: Who Wins?

Ahead of next week’s release of the DC Comics fighting game Injustice, Jackie and I have been debating who would win in the ultimate fight between Batman and Superman. No other pair of battling superheroes can stir up the same debate that these two can, even the whole lot of Marvel heroes.

Superman wins because he’s freaking Superman! That’s it. Mic drop…

Okay, you want an actual answer? Well, Superman is very appropriately named because he is the most super of all superheroes. He can fly, he has x-ray vision, he has super hearing and vision (not just x-ray vision), he can shoot solar energy from his eyes and is almost completely invulnerable.

Superman vs. Batman: Why Batman Wins

batman rulesIn anticipation of the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, Steve and Jackie are tackling the ultimate question as we look forward to the game’s release. Today, we would look at who would win the fight between Superman and Batman. While Steve chose to back the dude in the red cape and tight blue spandex, Jackie looks at why Batman would win.

So why would Batman win you ask? Well he’s the freakin’ Dark Knight! He’s badass! He’s the Batman! That’s right. Crushed it.

Sure, Batman doesn’t have the superhuman abilities like Superman. He can’t fly. He ain’t got no super hearing. He certainly doesn’t have x-ray vision. He can’t shoot solar energy from his eyes, but at least he ain’t afraid of Kryptonite! Read the rest of this entry

Fortunately, we got one for NetherRealms upcoming DC Comics fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. The game has been hyping the debate between comic book fans as to whether Superman or Batman would win in a fight but is there more to this game than that?
