    Well, they needed a reason for the heroes to all be fighting each other, and I thought what we got in the Injustice was a lot more interesting that just doing a brain washing story or something like that. By splitting the heroes and villains down the middle the way they did, it gave us some pretty interesting conflicts for everybody.

    For me it is all in execution. I don't usually like villains and I hate how people lionize them in pop culture (Joker, Vader, etc.). But, Injustice was something that I found endlessly fascinating is what happens when he loses that battle. I completely understand what you're saying regarding the internal struggle-I just also am fascinated by consequences, both positive and negative.

    Injustice would not have been as interesting if it hadn't been done well. But, I think it is done well so it engages me, for the most part.

    I'm not a fan of most DC stuff. I get that.

    The premiere dates for neither show has been announced. The article on DC's own website states:

    "You’ll have to stay tuned to learn when these two new sure-to-be-anticipated adventures will be making their debut, but it’s good to know that Superman and Batman’s animated legacies are still as strong as ever."

    In Batman: Endgame we saw something worse than a Justice Lord...Superman on Joker venom was about the most frightening thing I’ve seen in comics short of Immortal Hulk...but I don’t want to see that in this Superman series....which has such an innocent, cheery look to the drawings.

    This should be about situations. No Darkseid here I hope.

    I'm just not interested in Superman being frightening. As a bullied child, I was routinely afraid of people stronger than me. That's far too familiar a feeling. What made Superman meaningful to me, then and now, was that he was stronger than any of us but we never had to fear him. So I'm not one of those people who thinks he needs to be darker and edgier to be interesting.

    I don't Superman needs that. I just find it interesting. Superman is interesting in multiple interpretations.

    Yeah, what makes things like Injustice work for me, is that it's a alternate take on Superman, separate from the regular version. I don't think something like that would work as the regular version, but for a limited, alternate universe version it does.
    It's also worth keeping in mind that we do also get the traditional version of Superman in the first game, which is about the traditional versions of the characters getting pulled into the Injustice universe to help it's Batman and his allies fight their Superman and his allies.

    Except haven't they continued to do more stuff set in that universe? Makes it less limited.
