I saw this at work and had to read it. I love the Masters of the Universe, and the thought of He-Man vs Superman was just too good to pass up! And wow, Injustice vs Masters of the Universe was quite the wild ride!
It starts with He-Man vanquishing a robot named Faker, who had taken control of Eternos, Capital City of Eternia. But the civilians berate He-Man for liberating them, because under Faker, they felt safer. He-Man tells them that he fights for their freedom; Faker was a dictator who tortures people and strips the civilians of their voice. Zatanna and Swamp Thing overhear this, and decide that He-Man is the perfect man to recruit in their war against Superman back home. After the Joker tricked Superman into killing Lois and their unborn child, Superman established a totalitarian regime to stop such tragedy from happening again. Unfortunately, many suffered under his tyranny. He was overthrown once, but after Brainiac attacked, he was released. Afterwards, Superman reestablished his regime. With the Sorceress's blessing, He-Man, along with Teela and Orko, accompany the Justice League to Earth. Swamp Thing, Starfire, and Cyborg remain on Eternia to help out in He-Man's absence. Unfortunately, not long after He-Man leaves, Darkseid arrives with the intention of wresting the Anti-Life Equation from the spirit who resides within Castle Grayskull!
Injustice vs Masters of the Universe was such a fun romp. I absolutely loved it and would love to read more (which the book clearly lends itself to - Hordak running Apokolips, anyone?)
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
