Cover Artist: Mico Suayan

Injustice: Gods Among Us continues to shine with a brilliant story in issue #4. Who would have known Aquaman could be awesome? Well it’s no surprise that The Deep creator Tom Taylor could pull it off. While the art does take a hit in this issue, the dialog and story are top notch.

Not all of the panels in the comic were disappointing. This one stands out as one of the better ones.

For most of this issue, the attention is on Aquaman, the king of the sea. Some whaling ships make the unfortunate decision to go killing whales on Aquaman’s bad day. Perhaps taking things a little too far, Aquaman declares war on the whaling fleet and begins sinking ships. The Justice League tries to stop him, but he’s not too happy with them either. As far he’s concerned, they can rule the surface world, but the ocean is his turf. Refusing to back down, he reminds the world just how much power he has. But Superman is no slouch when it comes to turning the tables.

There’s also some interesting dialog between Batman and Superman as they confront their differences. The story pokes into Batman’s motivations and flaws. Unfortunately a good chunk of the story is lost in the underwhelming artwork. Whether its a lack of detail or dull coloring, the visuals aren’t anything to get excited about. They’re not terrible, but they’re not great either. In the end, the okay artwork hurts the issue a bit.

Still, I love this series. The territory it’s covering with the superheroes is great. There’s drama, humor and surprise. With Aquaman’s stunning debut in this issue, I hope he’ll be back for more. With great storytelling and so-so artwork, I give Injustice: Gods Among Us #4 a four out of five metal bikinis.
