IGN:
Injustice: Ground Zero #1 Review

1 post in this topic

DC's Injustice universe is trapped in a sort of limbo right now. The prequel comic recently wrapped up after devoting years to exploring the lead-up to the video game in painstaking detail. And while there's a sequel comic on the way, that series won't be debuting until closer to the release of the Injustice 2 game. So how to fill that gap? DC's solution is to introduce a new Injustice comic that directly adapts the events of the original game. It's not necessarily the most exciting angle, though the fact that Harley Quinn is the main protagonist promises that this series won't be a straightforward rehash.

That's the hope anyway. It's tough to get a good sense of how Ground Zero will adapt the game based on this first issue (which, as per usual, reprints the first two digital chapters). The first chapter boils down to Harley recounting the events of Injustice Years One through Five, ranging from Superman's ll-fated clash with the Joker to his ultimate rise to power as a global tyrant. The fact that all of this is filtered through Harley's whimsical worldview does help give it a little added flavor, but at the end of the day this chapter is still more recap than real story. But things do pick up in the second chapter, when Batman dispatches Harley (mostly to get her out of his hair) to attack a factory producing more super-pills for the Regime.
