Injustice 2 Trailer: Superman And Batman Take on Brainiac

What if Superman was manipulated into inadvertently killing Lois Lane and their unborn child? What would that do to his psyche? It's a question explored in the 2013 game (and subsequent comic book series) Injustice: Gods Among Us, which postulated the Man Of Steel being so desperate for justice, that he essentially takes control of the entire planet. And what follows are the struggles between he and his allies, and his opponents — led by Batman.

Next month will see the release of the game Injustice 2, the latest trailer for which focuses on the arrival of the android Brainiac. It's Brainiac who was responsible for the destruction of Krypton, and now, having discovered the existence of Kryptonians on Earth in the forms of Superman and Supergirl, is driven to complete its mission and destroy them, destroying the planet in the process if necessary. A variation of this plot can actually be found in the 2013 animated film Superman Unbound.
