While Batman readies his security team to protect the Presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C., Batgirl leads the other heroes on a mission to invade Ra's al Ghul's jungle stronghold. In addition to Green Arrow, Black Canary and Wildcat, she’s also bringing along their secret weapons—two nearly invincible players who could tip the odds in their favor and enable them to rescue the kidnapped children.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 3, 2018

    Heading back to the central conflict is an excellent move at this point. However, seeming like a simpler narrative, it has a lot of subtlety in characterization and thematic element. Don't be afraid to read a little deeper. There's a thoughtful reflection here that will seem familiar. And, of course, Batman and Ra's could've been allies in another life as well. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jan 3, 2018

    We're doing some setup here for the next horrible plan in Ras' playbook of demented world-dominating schemes, but some genuinely nice character moments and one extinction-level event keep this story progressing forward in surprising leaps. Tom Taylor has not yet begun to exhaust the possible patheon of villains to put into play here, and the further he reaches back into DC history, the more interesting it gets! If you're looking for fresh faces and brand new devious dynamics, Injustice 2 is the place for you! Read Full Review

    The real strength of Taylor's run on Injustice 2 is the way he is able to seamlessly weave together violence and destruction with some great emotional moments. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 3, 2017

    At this stage I just can't bring myself to read most of the books these characters appear in with the mainstream titles because there are so many things intertwined and the characters don't feel really well realized. Taylor's work on Injustice 2 brings me a cast of characters that I know in very difficult circumstances after all that has happened and is putting them through the wringer while still being the very characters that I've known for years. Though we get the death and less than heroic side of several this is still a series I'd recommend over most mainstream books simply because it's barreling through a strong story with great character work.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 2, 2017

    Injustice 2 Chapter 17 did a very good job showing us how Batman and the Justice League Task Force are being more proactive in taking on Ra's group of heroes and villains. The chess game between both sides continues to be a fascinating thing to see play out as it still not clear how this conflict will turn out. The mystery around the outcome makes the anticipation for what comes next from Tom Taylor even more exciting as we come back to the Injustice 2 world on a weekly basis. Read Full Review
