Inspired by the fighting game series Injustice: Gods Among Us and the tie-in comic series by Tom Taylor of the same name, Injustice depicts a world wherein Joker tricks Superman into killing a pregnant Lois, causing the Man of Steel to kill the clown and despotically seize control of the Earth.

In an environment where the Kryptonian demigod rules all and doesn’t give a second thought to killing anyone who stands in the way of his goals, it’s up to Batman and his allies to stop him.
