Our Video Game Comics series wraps up with “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” This comic, written by Tom Taylor with art from Jheremy Raapack, sets the stage for DC’s one-on-one fighting game. The story creates an alternate universe where Batman can face off against Wonder Woman and the Flash can fight Superman. But is that even really necessary? Do we need a whole comic book series to set up a video game? Maybe not, but we’re pleasantly surprised by the outcome here. Strap on your headphones for a listen while we take you to the Quiver and punch some people really far away. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
We wrap up our Thanos vs. Darkseid series by watching the series finale of Superman: the Animated Series, “Legacy.” In these episodes, Darkseid brainwashes Superman into doing his bidding in an attempt to invade Earth. We talk about Darkseid as a character, the show’s metaphor for the eternal struggle between good & evil, and the challenges of fitting a story this big into an episode this short.

Also, some of the best costume design art we’ve ever seen. For more information on past and upcoming episodes, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com.
