Injustice 2 - New Comic Book Series and New Characters Revealed

The upcoming video game Injustice 2 from NetherRealm Studios, will be getting the comic book treatment as a comic book series was announced at Comic Con in San Diego.
The announcement from the Injustice 2 Comic Con panel, was that the comic book series will be a prequel to the game, much like the first series which was a prequel for Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Tom Taylor who wrote the first series will also be returning to write the new comic books for Injustice 2. Like the first series, the new series of comic books will be released digitally every week in the lead up to the games release, which is due for release in 2017.

"Having had such a big role in tearing apart the Injustice universe and its characters, I'm very excited for the opportunity to return and do it again," Taylor said in a statement. "To be given so much freedom to play with the world's greatest superheroes and supervillains every week is a dream, and I want to thank everyone at DC, WBIE and NetherRealm for their continued faith in me, editor Jim Chadwick, and our incredible team."
"Our overarching goal is to tell one complete story between the comics and the games," Taylor added. "In writing Injustice 2, there are a lot less 'Gods Among Us' than when we started our story, but I hope to join Batman and the world's finest heroes in cleaning up the mess an evil Superman and his regime left behind. I hope to repair Earth and bring back hope... but this is Injustice. Prepare for tears, comedy, triumph, devastation, shocking tragic twists involving DC’s most beloved characters…and Harley Quinn stealing every scene she's in."

In other news from the Injustice 2 panel, was the reveal of two new characters for the video game. The Blue Beetle and Wonder Woman will join the list of already confirmed characters which include Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus, Supergirl, and Gorilla Grodd.
