Who wants to bet that Ra's isn't really dead, but that he hired Deathstroke to do this as some sort of test for Batman/Damian (I mean, Deathstroke is a mercenary, so why would he be doing something without being paid?)
And on a side note, they had really, really better not make Slade look like a chump and job out to Batman (or Damian...) again. I can't take that anymore.
Yeah, this is the first issue of Injustice that I've actually hated. There are deaths that are shocking, and then there are deaths that are just shock value.
And man, was Superman a colossal jerk to Gordon, or what? Don't crush a man like that and then just fly away.
Same. I've loved every issue of Injustice before, but I really hated this one, though. There was no care or build up given to the death in this issue. No focus on the character, no meaning. Just "oh hey look, this character is in the comic now... oh no wait sorry, he dead."
Disappointed not to see Nico here - very - but not surprised, especially since Hopeless would want to push his creations. Also, it would take the heat off him for his atrocious treatment of previously established characters (I wish Hazmat good luck).
Also, didn't Hopeless state he intended to continue his "Battle Royale" premise in a new book with a new set of characters? I know I read that somewhere. Glad it's not happening, either way.
Except he's already said that Nico and Chase ARE in the book. But, you know, why advertise the two most popular characters that would be in the book? That wouldn't make any sense at all. Of course, I'm hoping he was just lying and neither of them are actually part of the main cast, because the last thing he needs to do is keep writing the Runaways, ugh.
Also, that first variant artist was apparently never told how old Deathlockette is supposed to be, and neither cover gets her cybernetic arm on the correct side. Further proof that no one on this project knows what the hell they're doing.
@explodingpineapple: she was around 17-18 by the time the reboot happened. It's a mystery in New 52 since the Wilson family history is so convoluted and conradictory, it makes determining her age impossible. I'd guess late teens, though. Possibly early twenties at most.
