    Injustice puts the Flash in a new place and I'm curious to see how it plays out because you can see a number of very bad end paths for him based on what's happening. I liked the time with him and Iris as it reconnects him to the past he separated himself from in order to try and work the greater good in keeping Superman on the right path, but I also really liked that we see that Superman is anything but on the right path and is nearly unhinged as he goes after Flash over what happened with Batman. It's putting the Flash in a real pickle that he can't exactly outrun as the only thing to do is actually make a real choice that will alter his path significantly. Read Full Review

    This chapter starts a new arc for the story and as such, it's a lot of setup.  Barry's days with the Regime appear to be over and if they are not, he needs to rethink that.  After Superman tried to take his head off, he ran to Central City, but learned very quickly that there are some problems you just can't run away from.  The story and art are good and if you are a Flash fan, you might enjoy it more than most.

    I haven't missed an issue of this since it started. Too me it's felt like one long DC What If or Elseworlds where anything can happen. I wouldn't want to see any of this stuff happen in the main DCU but being able to read it here, self contained with infinite possibilities feels just right. Here's hoping they do an Injustice II comic when the new game comes out.
