INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US
IN Franchises, Comic Values And Collections
*In celebration of Independence Day, we go over the best fighting techniques in Injustice 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.
THE BEST FIGHTING VIDEO GAME
The Injustice: Gods Among Us video game series has been both a financial and a critical success for WB Games.
Based on the popular comic franchise titled Injustice: Gods Among Us, the series centers on the events after Joker brutally kills Lois Lane, Superman becomes evil and sets up a tyrannical Regime on Earth. And Batman forms a coalition of heroes to oppose Superman’s Regime.
Since we are interested in the fighting game, let’s rate the main characters’ fighting techniques and how they compare to the comic. For the most part, we are interested in strength, speed, and damage.
So, from our video above, let’s find out which Injustice 2 character has the most comic-accurate fighting technique.
5. COMIC-ACCURATE: DARKSEID
Generally, Darkseid’s fighting moves are inspired from the classic Bronze Age version though his costume and powerset take some inspiration from the New 52.
Really, Darkseid is imposing and his fighting moves make for some economy of movements, with strength, power and size. With his imposing physique, Darkseid can deal up to 40 hits of combos with at more than two-thirds of your life bar.
Certainly, his Omega Beams are his finishing moves showing that he may be the best for defensive-minded players who like to deal maximum damage in a few moves.
4. COMIC-ACCURATE: BATMAN
Usually, Batman uses shadows, deception and technology to defeat his opponents. In fact, his fighting stance is usually a crouching, mysterious and exploiting technique.
Since Injustice is influenced by the Elseworld and its armored characters, Batman’s fighting techniques show a more offensive-minded and open-combat Batman. In fact, his techniques reflects the comic more accurately.
And Batman’s grappling hook is the difference-maker. Effectively, he uses it offensively to trap his opponent and throw him/her across distances. Certainly, moves reminiscent of Batman v Superman. With 40 hits, Batman can cost more than two-thirds of your life.
3. COMIC-ACCURATE: DOCTOR FATE’S SPELL OF JUDGMENT
With the Black Adam movie, Doctor Fate and the JSA are getting some interest. Though the powerhouse is not well-known, his appearance in the game is very comic-accurate. In fact, Doctor Fate is a playable anti-hero in the game.
And this video game separates itself with the improved gameplay and design. Though Doctor Fate’s Spell of Judgment combos only deal 14 Hits, they damage about two-thirds of a life bar. What is special about his fighting techniques is that they accurately reflect the comics.
VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE
2. COMIC-ACCURATE: SUPERMAN’S SPEEDING BULLET
Perhaps, one disappointment from Injustice 2 is the downplay in Superman’s combos in terms of hits, strength and damage. The first game featured Superman‘s Flying Ground Smash and other special moves.
However, our game shows moves more consistent with Superman’s fighting techniques Post-Crisis. Usually, Superman uses a lot of haymakers, crosses and bullrushes at super speed. At the same time, this reflects an aged and powered-down Superman.
Neverthless, the fallen hero still deals about half the damage in 14 hits.
VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE
1. COMIC-ACCURATE: FLASH’S LIGHTNING PUNCHES
Before, we published an article about Flash’s lightning punches. In fact, the article asked how Flash’s punches can hurt Superman. In Injustice 2, the gameplay answers the question.
Without a doubt, Flash sports the best fighting techniques of any character in the game. Certainly, the improved mechanics make Flash’s lightning punches flow better. And really, Injustice 2 may be the most-accurate portrayal of Flash’s super speed.
From the gameplay, to the fighting techniques to the super speed, Flash simply appears and disappears like a bolt of lightning. In 20 Hits, the hero is able to beat a third of your life in damage. Really, Flash sits at the top and faithfully his special moves display the comics.
VERDICT: BEST COMIC-ACCURATE
