Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #7 is Tom Taylor’s last Injustice comic. For this parting story, he goes back to the beginning to a what if tale. What if Lois didn’t die? What if Superman didn’t kill the Joker? What if there was a happy ending? Well, in this case, Tom gives us the happy ending.

In the last issue, Batman put Superman to sleep. As he goes into dreams, this issue dives in to show us what could have been. It goes all the way back to when Superman launched into space and realized he was carrying Lois. In this case, he returns to Earth in time and she doesn’t die. Nor does their child. Batman takes care of the Joker, and they save Metropolis. The dark times are averted. Best of all, we get to see Superman’s child grow up.

She becomes Laura Lane. Yes, Superman has a daughter, and she seems pretty awesome. We see her first word, her first steps, and her first flight. Superman mentors her with her laser vision, with fighting bad guys and saving the world. It’s a nice montage of moments, and highlights what Superman and superheroes in general should be.

As a send off story, I really like what they did here. In a way, this is how it should end: a happy ending. Alas it will return to a darker reality, but it’s interesting to see how things could have been. Better yet, it’s interesting to see Tom’s take on a female Superman. If only that could be.

It’s fitting that Tom’s last injustice comic should end on a high note, and this one is well justified. I give Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #7 a five out of five metal bikinis. This issue wraps up a very long, and successful run on the heroes and villains of the DC universe. While the series will go on, I have to applaud Tom and all the artists that have worked on this series so far for their outstanding work. Issue #7 showcases just how well they’ve managed to blur the lines between visual and written storytelling. It’s a great comic, and well worth reading.
