It looks like the Injustice 2 story mode will coincide with the events of the ongoing tie-in comic. While it was billed as a prequel, the events in the comic are too similar to the game’s story mode. This has lead to some speculation that the killer Batman from the comic will be an alternate skin.
Many are predicting that the killer Batman is Jason Todd aka Red Hood and the latest issue doesn’t disprove them. The latest digital chapter of the comic revealed that the imposter Batman has no powers, so Jason is a possibility. Reddit fans expressed interest in seeing a version of Jason Todd in the game, especially his infamous Red Hood persona.
According to Injustice narrative lead Shawn Kittelsen, the latest comic chapter ties-in to the highly anticipated Injustice 2 story mode. The description in Comixology confirms this, since the chapter involves Superman’s breakout from the prison he was put in. It will be interesting to see who Batman’s two allies are, though Green Arrow and Black Canary are likely choices.
With Superman’s breakout and a killer Batman on the loose, there’s a lot of intrigue with the comic tie-in. Now that the two stories are sort of crossing over, it looks like the comic will be even more important. Playing the game and reading the issues look to be the best way to get the complete Injustice 2 experience.
Who’s The Killer Batman?
It’s not clear if the Injustice 2 story mode will cover the imposter Batman angle, but fans are enjoying it. Should the killer end up being Jason Todd, there’s a good chance he will be a heavily downloaded DLC character. If the writer makes it someone less obvious like Thomas Elliot aka Hush, expect killer Batman to be a skin.
Whatever the result ends up being, there’s no denying that the comic is officially a hot commodity for fans. The first Injustice was a surprisingly great comic book, so seeing the sequel get similar praise is great. Expect the collections to sell like hotcakes, especially due to the reputation of the first five series’.
Injustice 2 is slated for a May 16 release and will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. Those that pre-order the game can get Darkseid as a bonus character, no matter what version is purchased. Fans of mobile games can get the free-to-play version of the game on May 11 for iOS and Android.
