Things get real in Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #4 as a trap is laid out and thing to to hell. The Raven comes back into play, as does Superman, Spectre and Shazam. Constantine almost pulls it off but then, of course, the tables are turned.

Fair warning, I’m going to delve into some spoilers with this review. After the recon in the last issue, Constantine devises a trap to catch Superman. It involves using Raven as bait and the Ragman as the rat catcher. And it works! Superman goes into the trap and is ensnared by the Ragman’s cloak. Now this isn’t a character I’m familiar with but the issue does a good job of explaining it. If a person is corrupt, they get absorbed by him and become another patch in his cloak. As Constantine explains, Superman killed an entire planet, so he’s got plenty to answer for. Yet Superman isn’t done yet, and he escapes. That’s when things get real. People are about to die.

Once again, there is some great artwork in this issue. With a lot more action this time around, we get to see some suspense and desperation as Superman and Ragman get the tables turned on them. Even Spectre shows some concern when Superman is snatched. But some of the best scenes are when Superman is trapped in the cloak and struggling to get out. His face is riddled with emotion. Then there’s Constantine above him, smug in an easy victory. It’s great stuff.

Tom Taylor and all the artists involved continue to kick this out of the park. This issue reads great and looks great. The characters are excellent, the story is entertaining as ever, and it’s keeping the series rolling on high notes. I give Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #4 a five out of five metal bikinis.
