Injustice: Gods Among Us #10 kicks off by wrapping up the conflict stirred up in the last issue. From there, things go crazy as the story packs in some shock value. For the end note, the issue leaves off with a glimpse of the Superman we all remember and a commentary on what he has become.

Part one pits Batman and Superman against each other. The Justice League is fuming after finding out Batman kidnapped Hawkgirl and replaced her with the Martian Manhunter who has been spying on the League for weeks. Tired of being out maneuvered by Batman, Superman decides to strike back by revealing Batman’s identity to the world. I won’t spoil what happens, but it’s a nice back and forth game between two excellent competitors. Tom Taylor does a great job of making each pinnacle superhero retain their majesty and grandeur even though one side has to win.

Part two goes for crazy as it opens with Wonder Woman begging Superman to burn her with his laser vision. The ‘why’ makes for a fun story, though I was a little sad how it turned out. Either way, the storytelling was able to grip its claws into my emotions, and that’s what counts. On a side note, the art for this section was my favorite of the issue. Very bright and colorful. It really stood out.

Part three jumps back six years in time for a whimsical, nostalgic flashback. A kid remembers one day when Superman helped him out. He reminisces on how things used to be in Metropolis. It shows the ideal we all hold for the Man of Steel: the ultimate superhero. Then end is especially poignant and it’s a great way to end the issue.

With one of the strongest stories we’ve seen since this series kicked off, I give Injustice: Gods Among Us #10 a well deserved five out of five metal bikinis. Great artwork, great characterizations, and a great story.
