  • "Injustice: Gods Among Us" takes place in an alternate reality, the Joker has tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane and their unborn son and destroying Metropolis. In retaliation, Superman murders the Joker in front of Batman in a fit of rage and establishes a new world order as the High Councillor. A war ensues between the forces of Superman's Regime and those allied with Batman's Insurgency. Five years after the war's start, the Insurgency discovers the Justice League's universe where the Joker's plan did not succeed and transports several of its super heroes (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Green Lantern, with Batman and the Joker being caught up in the transfer by accident) to theirs in order to help them defeat the Regime. Batman and the Joker are confronted by the Regime in a dystopian-like Metropolis, but Batman uses his gear to help them both escape and go their separate ways.

    Having arrived in this world, attempting to learn what has happened, Aquaman travels to Atlantis to research the archives while Green Lantern goes to recharge his ring. After discovering Raven and Cyborg torturing Deathstroke, Green Lantern faces Sinestro and his own counterpart under the identity of Yellow Lantern. He escapes with Wonder Woman and Green Arrow in a Gotham City similar to that of the other Metropolis, subsequently meeting the Batman of this world. Learning that Atlantis has agreed to a treaty that puts Superman in total control of Atlantis, Aquaman rejects it, defeating the Flash, Shazam and his own counterpart before Ares appears. Acknowledging that he is weakened by the lack of conflict, Ares sends Aquaman to join the Insurgents, which includes a Lex Luthor who was never a criminal. Batman explains that he has a kryptonite weapon that can defeat Superman in the Batcave, but it requires DNA samples from the other four heroes to unlock, as Batman wanted to ensure he could not make the decision to stop Superman by himself. The heroes from the other universe became necessary after Green Arrow died and the other three aligned with Superman. ...

    Did You Know? The story of "Injustice: Gods Among Us" is similar to the 2 part episode of the animated series "Justice League" (2001) called "A Better World" where the Justice League are sent to an alternate reality where Superman has become a tyrant and the Justice League have taken control of the world.
