Fans of angrier, surlier versions of the classic DC Universe characters are currently overjoyed by the release of the Injustice 2 game, the sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us. How gritty/grim/gnarly is this series usually? Well, it’s said to be Zack Snyder’s favorite DC related property, so make of that what you will. But if you love your DC icons wearing lots of extra armor and padding all over their costumes, then this is the video game franchise for you.
Now a YouTube user by the name of LOSTyGIRL has gone and uploaded the funniest clash interactions and quotes from the game. Some are genuinely funny (when Flash is asked if he’s familiar with the laws of physics, he cops to breaking them all, so yeah, he’s familiar). And then, some are just lame, like Green Arrow telling Dr. Fate he needs to get laid. They weren’t even trying with that one.
Injustice 2‘s storyline centers around Batman and his insurgency’s attempt to bring society back after the end of Superman’s regime in the original game. However, the new threat of the supervillain group “The Society”, which is basically a version of the Legion of Doom/Secret Society of Super-Villains, together with classic Superman baddie Brainiac, force Batman to free the imprisoned Man of Steel to help end the bad guys once and for all.

But just because Injustice 2 is all grim and hopeless and dystopian, it doesn’t mean there isn’t room for some humor. The DC characters definitely are getting their wisecracks in, although the success rate of said jokes is 50/50 at best. But hey, I’ll take any attempts at humor in a DC property featuring Batman and Superman at this point.
What do you think of Injustice 2, both the game and its attempts at humor? Let us know down below in the comments.
