    Oh no, not AGAIN. That may have been fresh and clever the first time it was tried (Dark Knight Strikes Again, wasn't it?). But by now it's been sooo overused that it's as stale as a truckful of Twinkies.

    Superman working for Darkseid is over-used?

    They only did that in the cartoon.

    This book is about to take off, I think, after Robinson's slow burn. If Taylor brings some of his Injustice magic over to this title, it'll be great. I doubt he'll have the ability to kill anyone at any moment like he does in Injustice, but I'm excited to see how Earth 2 goes from this point forward.

    Nope, Evil!Supes vs. Batman is overused. In fact, Evil!Supes has been overused for years.

    Wasn't all deaths in Injustice enforced by game canon? I think this title might actually give him less limitations.

    That Superman cover is pretty awesome. Anyone know the sales for this series? I just wanna know this won't get cancelled in another six issues.

    I read the first issue of Injustice and it was just one "dark" cliche after another. And seeing Batman and Superman become the focus of Earth 2 is not what I was looking forward to when they launched the book. Robinson's departure seems like the perfect jumping off point for me!

    Alright, should last a while longer as long as not too many Robinson fanatics jump off on this one.

    Read a few more issues of Injustice. Trust us, you will enjoy it. And the Superman/Batman focus is just that first arc.

    Well with Superman and Batman returning I bet it will see a significant jump in sales at least for the short term. If its a really awesome story it might keep those newcomers around potentially. I'm mostly buying it because Batman did return, but I do enjoying seeing some long lost or just not used characters getting the spotlight for once and I hope it doesn't become Bat-centric.
