Based on the fans’ favorite game and the comic book series that continues the story, Injustice: Gods Among Us will adapt the story to a dark alternate timeline in the DC Universe.

After the murder of the Joker, Superman continues to execute criminals as he becomes more and more corrupt. Five years later, Superman formed the One Earth regime to enforce global peace, but many of DC’s most famous superheroes, led by Batman, have come together to oppose the regime.

In a tweet pointing to the news, Ed Boon, the director of the original game, tweeted a screenshot showing the word “injustice” on social media.
