Injustice: Gods Among Us #5 starts with a story focused on the Flash, a character we haven’t seen too much of yet in the series. Writer Tom Taylor uses a protest to generate a moral dilemma for the super hero. He’s forced to look at whose side he’s on. And yes, now there are sides. The world of super heroes is beginning to split. It’s a nicely done tale of drama and perfect for the Flash.

The rest of the issue focuses on Arkham Asylum with even coverage on Batman, Nightwing and Robin. Superman and friends show up at Arkham and decide that the criminals there need to be dealt with once and for all. Batman and Nightwing try to stop them. It’s a tense standoff with some dark foreshadowing. It also highlights a lot of Batman villains, especially Two Face.

With this issue, the story continues to be top notch. Art wise, it’s pretty good. My favorite parts are those done by Tom Derenick, Andrew Elder and Alejandro Sanchez. Tom and Andrew covered the Flash story, while Tom and Alejandro did the last part of the Arkham story. Both of those had some really nice artwork and the other parts weren’t too bad.

In the end, this turned out to be a good issue and well worth a four and half out of five metal bikinis. If the artwork were a little better, and if the story didn’t leave on quite so much of a cliff hanger, I’d give it the full five. Still, the series is putting out some entertaining issues and #5 doesn’t disappoint.
