On the consoles, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a traditional fighting game where DC Comic heroes and villains rip one another to shreds in glorious 2D combat. The Android version isn't quite the same beast. These classic characters still despise each other, but now they're waging war in a 3 on 3 collectible card game.

Readers will be able to buy and read individual issues of comics, as well as large collections of back issues at once. Read More
