Clark's face in the last panel: there is a man who's just caught a glimpse of the true depth of the batdickery pit.

And that can be taken any way you want.

This is Scans Daily. It will be taken *every* way

I'm really impressed this is still going- since it is a prelude, I really figured, y'know, it'd be a limited series that'd end in a year!

I wonder that too. I mean I actually enjoyed the game story for what is , what it needed and tried to accomplish, but it's obvious with this game getting it's expected sequel ,that all of this is ignored. Then again, I have read that some people like this comic, due to how death sticks in this comic and the world is actually evolving and changing.

It's a surprisingly good comic. I don't think they expected it to be as popular as it was.

Frankly, the comic seems to tell a bigger story.

Injustice!Diana agitates me all kinds of ways (I was happy to see Main!Diana kick her butt in the actual game) but this level of batdickery is hilarious and kind of clever.

I don't quite understand how Batman can choose Wonder Woman as the Olympian champion, even if she does have Olympian blood. It just doesn't seem like a particularly functional way of resolving things if one side can choose for the other.

Diana is trying to have her cake an eat it to. She doesn't want to turn her back on her people or her gods, but she doesn't want to give up her and Superman's cause either. Her call for a trail by combat was a way for her to split the Gordian knot. If she won she would get to stay on Superman's side and still stay true to her people and gods.

Superman not looking ahead farther than his own ego allowed Batman to force her in a lose-lose situation. Either betray her principles, gods, and people by throwing the fight/refusing to be champion OR betray Superman by beating him. Either outcome Batman wins.

Of course there is an obvious way out of this trap...but it relies on Injustice Superman to actually keep his ego in check and his eye on the prize.

MY interpretation is that Bats is allied with the Amazons, and can choose any Amazon as his champion. Diana, while allied with Clark, is still an Amazon. Thus Bats can be a dick and pick her as his champion.

It might be a qualifier that the Olympian deities never saw as being necessary, because, bad as they are, they're not quite the level of manipulative bastard that Batman is.

Or Athena is on FIRE today in terms of tactics.

Damn. Best Bat-tactic I've read in a while. Jesus, they were your friends, Bruce!

Yeah, but they stand for the side that killed one of his children, and stole another. Could you see him ever forgiving that?

Nothing about Batman in all of this has made me think his is the 'right' side.

For me it is such a stretch to see how the characters on Superman's side have turned.

The idea that Hal Jordan is working with Superman, after the fight with the corps...

One thing I'll comment, I am pretty tired of 'Wonder Woman forced by her 'honor' into fighting people she doesn't want to' situations.

Yea, she has honor, but it conveniently puts her into fighting Batman or Superman or whoever too much, and it's not/shouldn't be her overriding character trait, which would be her compassion.

Well, Injustice!Diana's most prominent trait seems to be her aggression to the point that the Amazon's had all but abandoned their peace-seeking ways until the main universe Diana reminded them of what they were supposed to stand for.

Still, it seems to me that "I decline the role," should be doable. If someone's not compelled by their honor to accept, this type of thing shouldn't be automatic.
