    One thought on “Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four, Vol. 1”

    1. Full disclaimer: I went into this one without having read the previous volume. I have no idea whether or not that had any effect on my enjoyment, butMinor Spoilers AheadSo far, this was the weakest Injustice installment that I've read. Maybe because of Wonder Woman I'm just full-up with Greek gods in comic books or something? Pfft. I don't know.Doesn't matter, because these gods weren't all that scary, even though they were probably the best pick for Batman & Co. to ally with at this point. [...]

    2. I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. Ugh, where to start with this one. My greatest fear when Brian Buccellato took over was that this once-great series would lose its direction and drive. And that, unfortunately, is exactly what is happening. The story is very convoluted, and getting worse. All of a sudden, the Greek gods decide that Superman is not worthy to rule the earth, so they jump into the fray, initially siding with Batman and his crew. Throw in [...]

    3. Series went downfall for good after Tom Taylor left it and this was another weak volume for me, but Diana pummelling of Supes was an epic one.

    4. I know a lot of people hate Year Four but I found it pretty entertaining. I mean people doing stupid shit for no reason but still. There's moments of true stupid as fuck moments. One being with Seristo. It makes no sense and it adds nothing to the story beyond "Oh another save" moment. I also dislike how they made everyone just rush into fighting without seeing any sense in it. However the fights themselves are entertaining. Watching Wonder Women face off against Superman is fun and exciting. I [...]

    5. While not quite up to the level that year 1 and 2 brought us this was still much better than year 3. The deity angle worked better for me than the magic angle. 3.5 stars.

    6. 2.5 stars It pains me to give a lower rating to what used to be my favorite series, but I'm afraid that's all it can get.The departure of Tom Taylor has been a huge blow to the series and while Bruccellato tries his best to continue the story, it's not entirely convincing.The first volumes were everything that a comic should be - they had fast paced, intense plot, mind boggling twists, breath taking action and extraordinary characterization.Up to this day these are the only comics that have made [...]

    7. Not on the same level of the first two Years, but better than Year Three. Gone are the deep philosophical conversations and ethical dilemmas about what is right and what is wrong, how far a person should go to enforce peace before he violates another person's freedom of choice, and what is more necessary: Peace or Freedom? Instead, its pretty much bang bang fistfights and one on one combats all the way (making it more and more like a video game-tie in comics that it really is, but we didn't real [...]

    8. Brian Buccellato hits his stride as Injustice begins it's fourth year. The numbering of the series hides the fact that it's now on it's seventh volume, but Buccellato handles the prolonged conflict between Batman and Superman's forces well, setting up a new and unexpected threat, while also showing the consequences of their ongoing rivalry.The book is aided by series regulars Bruno Redondo and Mike S. Miller alternating art duties for the first six issues, resulting in one of the most visually c [...]

    9. (Received from Netgalley for review.)Is this what we're going to do now? Every "year" will have some sort of themed enemy that Superman will eventually vanquish? Last year was magic, and now we're on to the Greek gods. So seemingly on a whim, the Greek gods have decided that Superman's rule is a blasphemy against themselves, and so go to war with his side what Batman and company sort of awkwardly watch? Because they're very outclassed. Still, even with slight plot justification, there's some rea [...]

    10. 2.5 Stars.Okay, this is going to be a bit long 'cause I don't know if this volume is enough to keep reading this title. I'll explain.Injustice: Gods among us was a fantastic title. I consider Year One and Year Two to be one of my favorite comics of all time. The way Tom Taylor presented the story, the way he included and presented every character and their position in this conflict was perfect. Every character had a moment to shine, a witty line, an amazing scene, you didn't have to spend a lot [...]

    11. Another good volume in this series.So apparently the Greek gods have been manipulated by Ares into a fight against Superman's forces. The fight scenes are interesting. Especially those with Wonder Woman. Superman is still a hypocrite and a tyrannical doucheface. It is taking a god-awful long time for Superman to realize how flawed his decisions are. But they're finally starting to realize that maybe they've chosen the wrong side, and they're realizing that Sinestro = scum. TOOK THEM LONG ENOUGH. [...]

    12. Yeesh, when I said I wanted more after the first volume I really should have held my tounge. Dragging it out is an understatement.

    13. Collects Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four issues #-7This collection pits Superman's regime against the Greek gods of Olympus. Batgirl joins Batman's side in the war, and we find out more concerning what Lex Luthor is up to.

    14. 3,5 tähteä. Jotkin juonenkäänteet menivät jo liian överiksi minun makuuni ja osa hahmoista epäuskottavan passiivia. Kuitenkin viihdyttävää luettavaa ja mukana edelleen hauskoja hetkiä sekä aiemmissa osissa käsiteltyjä teemoja.

    15. This was probably the weakest volume in the series, at least to me. With the introduction of the gods of Olympus I feel as if we've deviated too much from what should be the main focus of the story -- team Batman vs. team Superman. The issue did have some heartfelt moments between characters that I appreciated, not to mention that Barbara once again took up the mantle of Batgirl which was great to see.

    16. Mad this alternate history story line just keeps getting better and better. Every "year" of story arc is full of new surprises and events. I never know if another major character will make it to the end of the arc or who will get pulled into the story. If you are looking for a new vision of your classic DC heroes here it is! Great art and story. Very recommended

    17. I eagerly tore into this one to see what would happen next and within the first few pages I was struck by how different the writing was. Superman on a throne? Lame puns? Clunky exposition? What happened?oh, new writer. Gotcha.This is simply not very good. This volume is the sort of thing I initially expected when I read the very first collection: a below-average comic about superheroes fighting for no good reason as an excuse to give a video game some background.In this issue Ares, the god of Wa [...]

    18. Some old same oldexcept the quite moments don't even make sense now.World: Art is meh, the emotions portrayed are a bit wonky and sometimes when smiles and smirks are unclear the art drops the ball. The world building here is okay for what it is. Playing with the Gods was a nice touch and a logical step, their portrayal on the other hand is another thing all together.Story and Characters: I don't care that Shazam is an adult when he's Captain Marvel but you can't do what you did with him as Bill [...]

    19. a whole lot of fighting. and then some more fighting. that's what happens when the god of war gets involved. even though tom taylor isn't writing these last couple of volumes, i feel like it's still one of the most fun reads out there. and the good news (at least for folks who really like injustice in comic form) tom taylor is back writing injustice 2! plus there's the expanded side stories involving harley (ground zero). there were no real 'oh shit' moments in this, or least they didn't carry t [...]

    20. "How do we defeat Superman?!"- "Magic green super soldier pills! They're > Superman!""Oh no, that didn't work!- "Umm Green Lanterns! Willpower > Superman!""No, no, Sinestro got involved and everyone knows Fear > Willpower except that it's literally always been the exact opposite every time the Green Lanterns defeat the Sinestro Corps in previous continuity"- "Okay, how about magic?! Magic > Superman!""Good idea, let's do it! Oh no, His Magic > Our Magic, bamboozled again!"- "What [...]

    21. NOTE While this review will be relatively spoiler-free, there may be some spoilers for previous volumes in the series. This installment follows in the pattern of becoming one gigantic battle. I do think there were some more interesting turns than the last one had, but there still felt like there was something a little lacking here in terms of the overall narrativeARACTERSThe cast of INJUSTICE gets a whole lot bigger with the inclusion of Greece's most legendary heroes and gods. If you're like me [...]

    22. YESSSSSSSS!!! I have said it once and I will say it again "Injustice" is probably one DC comics best superhero stories ever. What could the world do if Superman went rogue. Four years have past and obvious Supes still has not been stopped. It is a dark time for Batman and his allies who have gone underground to plan their next attack. There have been many losses on both sides. Superman knows Batman is not going to quit. Batman has tried magic but even with the help of the DC Universe's top magic [...]

    23. This series is still amazing, but I've noticed that this volume lacks some of the mind-blowing magic of the first two years. I really liked year three, since that involved all the magic users and mystical stuff is my jam. Year four, still good - and now we're adding in the Greek gods, which is pretty awesome. But there was something about the first two years that made me hyperventilate, and this year is lacking that.

    24. While I would say Injustice is slowly going down in quality of stories, it's still pretty good. What happens when the gods get involved in the fight between Batman and Superman? well Wonder Woman v Superman is the answer. Some fun moments mixed in, but the Harley Quinn side stories, while fun and I do like them. I understand that people would get sick of them. I did like this, and I'm excited to see how things progress from here.I recieved an Advanced copy of this from Netgalley and DC

    25. Amazing!Another year goes on as in the alternate universe in which Superman becomes a tyrant and the divided Justice League continues. Year Three brought the forces of the Justice League Dark against Superman's regime, but that fight ended with a stalemate as both forces of Superman's Regime and Batman's Insurgency fought each other to a standstill. Justice League Dark was not enough to decide anything and in turn created more death in this alternate universe. Magic has been in force since this [...]

    26. Year Four, Vol. 1 has a few things working for it. To begin with, Hal's starting to have doubts about Superman's holy crusade. About damn fucking time! I still remember how you killed Guy Gardner! It goes nowhere, of course, but at least it's something. I'll take anything I can get at this point. On the other side of the spectrum, Wonder Woman really goes off the deep end, encouraging Superman to kill Bruce Wayne in front of the whole wide world (who, by the way, have been conspicuously absent t [...]

    27. And then we have Year Four - more unintentionally funniness. So, let's just focus on that: Batman and crew at in a an abandoned lead mine (because where else would you hide from Superman?) which apparently has a fully stocked kitchen. Somehow Alfred turns up in a tux with Mac & Cheese and a fresh green salad - in an abandoned lead mine. I'll let that sink in for a moment. Why Alfred doesn't also bring clothes and a razor for Bruce is a bit of a mystery - Bruce is still wearing his uniform (m [...]

    28. Right, so if random spirits and mages wasn't weird enough for you, this one has the literal gods jumping in, which feels forced at best. Honestly, I found the resisting Superman storyline really compelling but now it seems like the writers are just using a magic 8 ball or somethingThe only reason I am still reading is I legitimately want to see how Superman's regime goes. Does he beat Batman, or does Batman convince his followers he is a tyrant? All the addition of these random background things [...]
