Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #11 continues the battle until things get weird. The epic duel between Trigon and Mxyzptlk gets to the point that they begin distorting reality. This third threat causes sides to get blurred as they begin helping one another to avoid getting sucked into hell.

This issue is a little better than the last one as there’s more story to it. I liked the angle where a third threat causes the two sides to work together. Sadly, not everyone makes it to safety. At least one hero dies and another one quite possibly meets their doom. Still, it’s an interesting change in the story.

There’s some give and take with the characters. Poison Ivy comes out of nowhere in this issue, and could have benefited from some previous character development. Swamp Thing could have used some better dialog and, in general, character usage. The story overstates his role compared to what we actually see, and he gets taken out very quickly without much being done with him. There’s a scene with Batman and Nightwing that feels very heavy handed and squeezed in rather than being a natural part of the story. However, there is some good character usage. My favorite parts are the scenes with Wonder Woman, Huntress and Scarlet Witch as they duke it out and when Flash comes to the rescue. It kind of evens itself out but that’s not the best place to be in storytelling.

For the most part, the artwork is good. My one complaint is Poison Ivy who is way too over sexualized and is barely wearing anything. On the flip side, everyone else looks good. The art team does a good job with all the action. The distortion effects were confusing at first, but made more sense as the plot point was revealed. I think the Flash panels also turned out really good with him zooming around to save everyone.

In the end, this wasn’t a bad issue, but it’s still not quite on par with where it could be. It feels like these last three issues are going to be one big climatic arc. On one hand, that could be a good when it’s done. On the other hand, they suffer when held on their own. As is, I give Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #11 a three and half out of five metal bikinis. It’s almost a four but not quite.
