Injustice: Gods Among Us is something I have a passing interest in. I like the look of it and I am a fan of fighting games. However not so much of fan to pay £40 for the privilege to play it. So I am currently waiting for it to drop in price and/or appear on Sony’s PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection. (Are you listening Sony?) As ever with any comic book video game there is a tie-in comic associated with it. Giving the back story and fleshing out the game’s narrative. Setting the stage for the craziness that has all these heroes and villains fighting and killing each other in a DC Universe gone mad! I have be keeping up with the comic by reading re-caps and breakdowns of it via places like scans_daily and tumblr. It seems like the usual alternate reality everyone you know dies in a ridiculous way type deal.
But one death takes the cake. The prize. All the awards for the stupidest thing I have seen in a comic book for a long time. In my daily check of tumblr my feed was filled with reactions. Reactions that range from pure white hot fan rage to literally falling of your chair laughing. Yes it is one of those deaths. A death that will go down in infamy for its levels of stupidity and poor storytelling.
SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP!
Take it away Injustice Damian Wayne and Dick Greyson!
Nightwing gets killed by a rock!
Not just any rock. A rock just casually laying on the floor minding its own business!
I can’t stop laughing!
