Injustice: Gods Among Us was released nearly three and a half years ago and the game has remained a favorite of NetherRealm Studios’ fighting games as well as the DC Universe ever since. Subsequent to its introduction, the game saw such high levels of critical and commercial success that additional character DLC, an Ultimate Edition, and a mobile version were unveiled to similarly positive reactions.
Also included as part of the original Injustice media mix was a comic book, tracking the events leading up to game. More than just a marketing piece or licensed fluff, the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book has gone on to find its own audience with a compelling story all its own that, on September 20th, concludes with issue 40.
Brian Buccellato, the current writer of the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic who took over the reins of the title from original creator Tom Taylor (who himself recently announced on social media that he had begun writing a similar prequel for the upcoming Injustice 2 game), recently spoke with the website Inverse about all things Injustice. In the wide-ranging interview Buccellato reveals how some of the book’s most unexpected twists were realized and just exactly where Superman comes down on the gun debate.
“I have a feeling he would intervene to some degree,” Buccellato tells Inverse. “I don?t think Superman, the spirit of Superman, would be interested in taking guns away. I think from a political standpoint people do have their right to own guns, but I think some regulation is necessary. Superman is a sensible guy and would probably want sort of sensible laws enacted to maximize the safety of people,” he explains.
It’s a fascinating read for any fan of the Injustice games, DC Comics, or comic books in general. Click here to check out the story.
