See all reviews of Injustice 2 (9)

Sorry, gaming fanatics: the Injustice 2 comics have become so much more enjoyable than the video game; pick any of the stories so far from the comics and hands down it’s more interesting than what we got in the video game. Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo are the dream team. The art by Redondo is beyond impressive; every detail is smooth and masterfully colored especially the pages featuring Poison Ivy, it’s hard to find any flaw in the Injustice 2 books.

Injustice 2 #11 continues the story of the heroes trying to save their children from Ras al Ghul, which sounds like a harrowing situation but turns out making for some really fun scenes that we aren’t accustomed to seeing; like Batgirl and Black Lightning working together. The team also discovers that Black Canary and Green Arrow’s son has powers so going forward it’ll be interesting to see where they’ll go with that. A lot of this part drags but it doesn’t cripple the issue too much. The dragging parts could have been replaced with some story about characters we aren’t seeing as much like Plastic Man.

There are some amazing moments with Batman and Poison Ivy where Batman stops Ivy from poisoning him but that was overshadowed by the emotional fight sequence between Batman and his son Damian. As we’ve seen recently Damian Wayne has abducted the body of their dead butler Alfred and has used the Lazarus Pit to bring him back from the dead and use him as leverage against Batman and stated that Batman didn’t treat Alfred with the respect he deserved. Batman finally confronts Damian and every page that follows is breath-taking and heart-stopping. The moment that stands out the most is when every hero catches up and finds them fighting and not one of them tried to stop them. It was a fight between father and son that needed to be dealt with and leads to a final moment and cliffhanger in the last panel that is so shocking and emotional you’ll wish you had just one more page.

Injustice 2 #11
Is it good?
Injustice 2 #11 has everything you need in a great comic: excellent story, action, and heart. The story continues the search for the heroes' children and the rescue mission of the Reanimated Alfred from Damian. If that isn't enough to pull someone into this issue then I don't know what else can. This direction with Injustice 2 is so excellent that the Injustice 2 video game isn't even in the same ballpark.
The fight between Damian and Batman was one of my favorite fights in comic books. It was very emotional to see them fight while undead Alfred watched.
Every cameo and character in the story are always lovely. Because it's not limited to the video game roster the possibilities are endless
The story is great but we've come so far and it still feels after 11 issues nothing has been accomplished yet.
