They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but that doesn’t mean you should dismiss it. Every now and then a cover catches your eye and demands further attention. Sure, Injustice: Gods Among Us #3 has an attractive Wonder Woman front and center, but look closer. See that shield? There’s blood on it. See that sword? More blood. In fact, Wonder Woman herself is splattered in blood. If this were a Conan comic, that wouldn’t be surprising. But this is Wonder Woman. This is the Justice League. When’s the last time you saw Wonder Woman get bloody? And we haven’t even addressed the bigger question yet: whose blood is that? After all, this is Injustice: Gods Among Us. We’ve seen Louis Lane die. We’ve seen the Joker get his heart ripped out by the Man of Steel. In Tom Taylor’s world, anything can happen.

Issue #3 is broken into two parts. The first half pits the President against the unrestrained threat that is Superman. The President goes after Superman’s second greatest weakness; his parents. With the Justice League united behind Superman, things get interesting. It’s as Batman feared.

The second part focuses on Wonder Woman who runs into Ares, the God of War. Not only does the artwork and the coloring look spectacular for this half, but Tom packs in the humor. He also adds some nice depth to Wonder Woman’s character. This was easily my favorite part of the issue.

Overall, Injustice: Gods Among Us continues to be a great series with a tremendously wonderful story. With Wonder Woman head butting tanks and threatening a god with a dominion over ponies, it couldn’t get much more entertaining. I give it a five out of five metal bikinis.
