Injustice Battle Arena Quarterfinals End With Few SurprisesBy: Zach Walton - March 15, 2013
After a week hiatus, the Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena is back. Instead of making us wait four weeks to see each quarterfinal matchup, the Injustice team has dumped all four fights on us at once in preparation for the semi-finals a few weeks from now.
First up, we have the much anticipated match up between Batman and Wonder Woman. Since the victors are decided by popular vote, it’s pretty obvious that Batman would win this fight. That being said, Wonder Woman puts up a great fight. Her stage is also a thing of beauty.
In what is possibly the strangest matchup today, The Joker and The Flash face off. I would have figured that The Joker would win the most votes, but The Flash came through to earn himself a spot against Batman in the semi-finals.
On the other side of the bracket, we first have Aquaman versus Green Lantern. While it was nice to see Aquaman come away with at least one win, he couldn’t stand up to the might of Hal Jordan.
The final fight is by far the most unfair of the bunch – Superman versus Green Arrow. Green Arrow has some amazing trick arrows, but Superman was guaranteed to win.
The results of the quarterfinals ensure that we’re in for a treat once the semifinals start up a few weeks from now. I’m especially interested in seeing that Batman versus The Flash fight. It’s sure to be exciting.
