You can spot impulsive people or bad decision makers when they start complaining that they got a tattoo and regret it. To me, a tattoo is a measurement of how well somebody knows themselves.
But yeah, only an idiot would stand opposed to them. It's not like they affect anyone else, unless you intentionally get something offensive.

Is that in the game? Cause clearly the game doesn't seem to have any affect on the storyline of the comic except in very broad strokes and the general idea of the comic itself. I may be wrong here but I think it's like Mortal Kombat lore versus the actual stories, the games may affect the lore in general, but there are several things that are overlooked about it. Also it'd be kinda difficult for him to have done that since Shazam/Batson are still allied with him and currently abducted by Harley Quinn...

The comics are suppose to lead in to the game, so yes the game is canon.
I do agree somewhat with your earlier comment though. Superman is employing tyrannical methods to maintain peace, but at least peace is the goal. DC is trying to paint Batman as the good guy but like you I just don't see it aka I also think Superman is doing good.

What I've read is that Injustice (comic) is BASED off of Injustice (the game) so like anything else that is" based off" something else, it probably isn't the same "universe" just two alternate takes. Now I haven't played the game so maybe Supes IS totally evil in that, I don't know.
And yeah alot of their Superman is bad stuff has felt extremely forced, like when it shows his super police or whatever being assholes to civilians....like what is that? Superman and his allies SAID they would use people they trusted as the police force, so that would suggest other superheroes, sidekicks, or their associates....so logically those guys would be very good people-probably even more so than Superman himself since they'd be long term associates that were on their side even before the events of Injustice began.
One of my biggest problems with comics is how they recycle villains. In some cases it works like Lex Luthor or others that are only villains in secret, too powerful, or just not ALL THAT evil. But in regards to guys like the Joker I always found it incredibly stupid that this guy is KNOWN to CONSTANTLY break out from prison and each time people are killed by him, sometimes large numbers of them.....and yet what do the heroes do? "Imma beat you up and take you to JAIL that'll show you!" And Superman does this too in many cases. When heroes do that they-in my mind-become accessories to every crime the villain commits because they KNOW he will escape, and they KNOW he will kill again if able. I get that it's this whole idea that superheroes are more morally upstanding than the common man but STILL. Think about if the police let Charles Manson escape 20 times and each time he goes back on a murder spree and by arrest 21 they STILL won't just kill him.....there'd be outrage. At one point is it worth tarnishing their pretty little morals to save so many innocent lies? Superman killing the Joker? 100% agree with that Batman should have seen that was the onyl way a long time ago.....and I think he DOES know deep down that he isn't stopping the Joker, only pausing him, so really Batman just didn't want to tarnish his own perceived moral code no matter how many people must die for it. There are plenty of heroes that should be shown mercy, but the Joker? No.

You havent played the game nor read the comic, so I understand that youre a bit misunderstood, but they are in the same universe. The comic is just about the events leading up to the game. Think of it as a prequel, simple as that.
I agree with your first paragraph.
Second one however, it gives the impression that youve never really read DC intimately, which is fine, but do correct me if this isnt the case. In injustice Luthor was never a villain (he is a good guy in that universe). I understand your frustration with the Joker. But remember that these superheroes are essentially vigilantes that get a free bypass from the law in apprehending criminals (they are widely accepted by the public after all) BECAUSE they are expected to not kill and be the most moral out of everyone. Imagine if you are an ordinary citizen and you realize that someone like Flash just killed someone. Well thats abuse of his abilities and all, but whos gonna stop him? The heroes know that they must be above the common man, so they are. They will not kill no matter what, because that will set the foundation that killing is alright for the greater good (which u can argue I guess, but DC has always seem to hold this viewpoint)

I have read the comic. The whole comic. Or at least what's out so far....what made you think I haven't? Also I'm pretty sure several people in the game are dead in the comics, so how does that get worked in? Joker mainly. And if the comics ARE a prequel then you can't really factor that into whether or not Superman is evil or not currently in the comic....it's like Anakin.....maybe he is going to be a horrible person later but as a jedi he actually managed to do alot of good too, so during his time as a Jedi, does knowing his future make that moment of Anakin bad? I'd say no, and same goes for Superman-in the comic at least. I'm sure at some point he will cross a line and become evil, but for NOW I see someone who has ended the suffering of millions and ended war, political corruption, etc. And has been attacked more than once with the intent to kill and he has defended himself. Perhaps TOO aggressively but still, when your life is on the line you don't hold punches. I'd definitely agree Superman is morally compromised and certainly in such depths of rage it can barely be contained, but deserving of all the effort Bruce has thrown at him? Perhaps not. I mean holy shit. I live in the US and I literally cannot imagine what life would be like without gang shootings, political corruption, war, drugs, and so on CONSTANTLY filling life. Without it.....man I'd almost be okay with being in a police state. (Hell all I do is work, eat, play games, and fuck around on the internet anyway.) I'd feel pretty safe knowing a lethal Superman and his team were watching over me. And one more point, we look at it at a perspective of people that are at least relatively safe day-to-day. He has also brought peace and improved living conditions to the equivalents of the Ukraine, Iraq, North Korea, Somalia, the WHOLE WORLD. So if that requires a few First World people feeling a little constrained I'd say it's worth it.
No I have not read alot of Marvel.....not super thrilled with the New 52 (liked Red Lanterns) but I do like some of their older stuff-even non-comic stuff like the 90's cartoons. Usually more for Marvel.
I get what you're coming from...but at the same time....c'mon....Lex Luthor a good guy? Please I think we all know better. That'd be like making Joker the good guy or Batman evil....it just would go against everything you expect. Maybe he's not AS evil or is kinda like....misled (like in the newer Justice League comics how he eventually teams up with the League once he realizes they aren't a threat ( well ok im pretty sure he'll betray them eventually but still)) I can't accept that Luthor is ACTUALLY a good guy and not just pretending. But that's beside the point. As for the rest of it, it's just SO hard to say......because we have no equivalent at all. The closest we could imagine is if Charles Manson or Hitler still lived and continued to be arrested, break out, and murder over and over and over. At some point the people WOULD cry out and ask why the police are so unable to stop him. I think at that point would be when people would ask for the Death Penalty and if the state proved unable to do this I fully believe you'd see vigilantes and such trying to do it themselves. Like I said, with 90% of villains not killing them is acceptable, but there are a 10% (Joker, Darkseid, etc) who are rotten to the core and should be put down by the state,,,,,but the state seems incapable of this. I understand DC has a longstanding tradition of NOT killing and that that's a big thing for them, but since they're the darker more realistic franchise (well more so than Marvel anyway) I expect it to mirror real life more. Maybe I am missing the point in putting myself in this DC mindset or mentality, but again for me it just remains a big drawback. Also I'd definitely say that Superman killing Joker or an invasion of bloodthirsty alien demon things is much different than the flash scenario you made which makes it seem like he'd kill any old villain.

Paragraph1: Ok so you just havent played the game. I suggest you watch the cinematics on youtube or something. That will clear up a lot of things about joker and stuff, since i dont want to spoil anything here. And like I said, I agree with you on superman, so no need to talk about that.
2. Thats fine. To each their own.
3. Luthor is literally a good guy in this alternative universe. He is not pretending. YOu read the comic, so remember when he was saved and SUperman and him hugged each other? They are besties. And yeah the whole no killing is very dumb. Ive always said that Gotham would be soo much better off if Batman were just willing to snap some necks. I agree with you on these points; merely pointing out why it isnt the case for DC, which is a shame. If they want to continue their edgy dark undertone in the comics, bitches need to die
#18 - lordsnow (05/28/2015) [-]
Id actually say that for Superman to kill is actually the bigger deal, as far as moral rightness/public stature is concerned. I'll admit a big thing that turned me off to the New 52 is how DC has this thing going where they'll have a plotline in one comic that's resolved in another or include constant references to other plotlines. That does create a really cool interconnected universe but it also forces people to buy other comics and can throw people off. It just seems to kinda jump from thing to thing, like the whole Amazo Virus arc just kinda ended with not as much resolution as I think there should have been, like they're cutting off their arcs at the end of the climax instead of using the lowering tension or resolution tropes. Not that Marvel isn't guilty either, lately I've been getting most into standalone series like Star Wars and such. I will also say this; the art in Injustice is maybe my favorite art I've seen in a comic, it's very detailed and very sharp and just looks amazing.
