Injustice story trailer explains hero-on-hero violence

Injustice Story Trailer

With just two-and-a-half months until the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios has decided to finally lift the curtain on just what the heck happened in DC-land to turn Batman and Superman into mortal enemies. A new story trailer explains that quite simply: The Justice League failed.

Though the backstory will be fully explained in an Injustice comic series that begins with today’s release of the first issue, the trailer gives those who aren’t picking it up a clue. Somehow, someway, The Joker is able to set off a massive bomb in the heart of Metropolis, decimating the city.

In the aftermath, a distraught Superman and fed-up Wonder Woman argue that humanity can not longer govern itself. Batman and Green Arrow disagree, claiming that the Justice League cannot become ruthless dictators and rob people of their freedoms, even if it means the elimination of criminals and prevention of atrocities.

The former two heroes refuse to listen to the latter and take it upon themselves to force martial law upon the Earth and rule as its leaders to ensure a “safe” and “secure” society. Those opposed are forced to operate underground, becoming insurgents with the intent of liberating the world and returning it to normal. As the struggle intensifies, both sides go to the extreme of recruiting those they once fought and imprisoned in order to achieve victory.

To see the battle lines get drawn and see some quality hero-on-hero violence, you can check out the full trailer below. Also, don’t be shy to post your thoughts and comments on what you think of the game’s backstory and what you predict will happen when the game releases.

Injustice: Gods Among Us arrives for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on April 16 in the North America and April 19 in Europe.
