The popular DC Comics game Injustice: Gods Among Us pitted superhero against superhero, supervillain against supervillain, often from a variety of different parallel universes.
I returned to it the other day after completing it on the iPad a while back, to discover a bunch of new levels, new characters and a Darkseid character challenge. So I’m back into swipe left, swipe left, swipe up territory again. It can be rather addictive.
But what effect has it had on comic creators?
I’m told that The DC Band-Aid project as I am still calling it, given no other alternative name, consists of twenty two part stories plus a weekly book running through the two months, totalling 48 books in all.
But the content will be modelled in part on the playing experience of that game, and others such as Infinite Crisis. Pitting various DC character of various realities together, against each other, with various outcomes.
What realities, I don’t yet know. But popular amongst such games as the Red Son characters, so that’s probably a lock. So… who would you like to see in combat against each other from the DC Multiverse? And who would you like to see write and draw such confrontations?
Seriously, DC Editorial will be watching and listening. And, as the title of this piece reflects, one creator described the project to me as “a love letter to DC Comics fans.”
Are you ready to feel the love?
