    Injustice 2 #6 is yet another stellar addition to this ongoing series though can be read as a standalone if you're just in the mood for some Supergirl origin. But as a fan of the character this one really made me want to play the game because I'm now even more excited they added her into Injustice 2. I really do enjoy how this series manages to mix great action and excitement with gripping human emotions we can all relate to, even without having super powers. Comic books are a great storytelling medium and alternate universes are a brilliant way of giving new life to beloved characters. Read Full Review

    This series keeps getting better! The focus on character has made this series worth reading! It doesn't really matter that I don't care about the Injustice 2 video game, the stories are putting character first and telling engaging tales that find a truth about familiar characters in an unfamiliar world.

    In conclusion, this is what I would unofficially call the rap up to the first arc. We have the Suicide Squad and League of Assassins, acting as opposition to Batman which is an unexplored idea, especially with Batman’s team as crippled as they are. Hopefully the next arc focuses a bit more on building up Batman’s team. Read Full Review

    This wasn't a major issue in the ongoing story. It made for an entertaining read. With the ominous warning of the major consequences to come for those who oppose Superman, things are only going to heat up. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 18, 2017

    Plain and simple, this book is a whole lot of fun. Events are moving along, character interactions are solid, the healthy dose of humor isn't overplayed or at the wrong place within it, and there's more than enough serious material and action to really make sure that it's a vital part of the overall Injustice mythology. Daniel Sampere and Juan Albarran really kick it into high gear here as I'm just in love with the character artwork and how their looking with expressions, making the whole experience even more exciting and engaging. Great stuff all around that leaves me wanting more and incredibly thankful that it's a weekly book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 16, 2017

    This is another good chapter of Injustice 2 and one I can get behind as usual. There are some nice reveals and great art, but still, it all is a setup for the ending where the big stuff happens. The big stuff being a dark threesome that I can't wait to see more of. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 17, 2017

    Injustice 2 Chapter 6 was another strong issue that further built on what has happened in the Injustice Universe. Tom Taylor delivered a great clash between Batman and Superman that was nicely transitioned to an intriguing reveal involving Damian Wayne. With the reveal of a new character to the Injustice world things should even get more intense as we enter the next stage of Taylor's story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 19, 2017

    Supergirl hasn't even been christened with her "super" moniker on Earth, but Black Adam is already corrupting her to the Superside (which we all know is bad and evil), while poisoning her against the Batside (which is all cake and puppies). It will be interesting to see if Kara susses out any nuances in this war that will give our now black & white world some shades of grey. While this issue feels a bit like a digression and some of it is heavily expository, the writing is still good and the story is moving forward. It will be interesting to see how Batman & Co. may deal with this new Superthreat! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 20, 2017

    Miller's style doesn't quite have the clean, dynamic appeal of artists like Bruno Redondo, but he succeeds in crafting emotionally rich figures and in capturing the scope of Krypton's destruction. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jul 19, 2017

    I was a little bored during this issue, in all honesty. Not much happened and the only action was kind of a throw away moment. I did like how the beginning was fleshed out a little differently than usual. Kara's story is one we all know very well so this is more of a checkpoint issue, than a good story, but I have plenty of faith in Tom Taylor to reel me back in next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Jul 24, 2017

    Despite that it is a compelling issue. Kara is portrayed as a little nave and gives off stranger in a strange land vibes which is interesting because it allows me as a reader to empathize with her a little more than usual. Read Full Review
