Readers of DC's digital Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book prequel have already begun piecing together the tragedy that turns Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League against each other, but NetherRealm's new story trailer provides a proper video game look at just what happened to transform the DCU downright dystopic. Turns out that, somewhat similarly to previous DC twists in tales like Kingdom Come, that the Joker is behind a devastating attack that destroys all Superman holds dear and splits heroes and villains into factions that square off over questions of liberty, free will and all of that good stuff. Rather than talk things out, fighting game fans should be comforted to learn that DC's most iconic characters -- including the newly revealed Bane, Hawkgirl and... two very different-looking versions of characters who appear to be Deathstroke and Batman -- have elected to fight to the finish to settle their differences. You can check out all of the new Injustice Gods Among Us reveals after the cut.
