Each entry in the Injustice 2 Shattered Alliances video series has helped set up conflict between characters. The first looked at Superman, the second focused on Batman’s issues, the third hinted at Supergirl’s past, the fourth on Gorilla Grodd’s Society, and now we’ve come to Brainiac. With this trailer, we see why all heroes and villains, despite being at odds with one another, could come together.
In the third Shattered Alliances video, we saw Brainiac’s work on Krypton. He was “collecting” that world and destroying everything in the process. Here, he actually shows his face when his forces begin invading Earth. He’s looking for Superman and tearing things up in the process. This means plenty of story scenes, as well as some brief glimpses of Brainiac during battles.
Injustice 2 will come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16, 2017.
