Injustice 2 #16. Together with the preceding issue kicking back into a groove that Tom Taylor appears most comfortable in, character introductions and character minutes in general, I’m anxious to jump into this issue to get down to Plastic Man. Along side that the total story appears to be getting into the meet of this show with Ra’s Al Ghul’s plan becoming famous with either side now clearly on a path leading forward. Check out after the jump to find out what I thought of this issue and in which the story’s going from here.
He calls out the real identity of this man immediately to be Plastic Man’s son, which kicks him off right into a match of ISpy in which Batman calls out each thing he portrays in the endeavor to hide out of Batman.
Once the guy has given up we catch up on a little of this background, most of that had happened off panel. Although some did happen during year four of the first Injustice, at which we saw Plastic Man go to Superman requesting the launch of his son that had been taken prisoner for becoming a part of a resistance group. It ends up being this resistance group, using a ridiculous acronym, that is the reason for Batman’s visit. It is at this stage Plastsic Man himself looks, as he seemingly was his son’s opinion the entire time. After a little more debate Plastic Man and his son both consent to go off with Batman, but it’s not too long until a different guest joins the party.
It is here where I’ll cut off, not a whole lot more really happens, but that’s not a terrible thing. In a series that is chiefly known for being a fast and effortless read this issue actually seemed really packaged. It had a whole lot of fantastic humor and it was wall to wall personality. After the narrative focuses on what Tom Taylor does best this publication is completely at its very best. I enjoy the callout to the previous stories and I love that the Plastic men would be reluctant to join up with anything again later where it ended up that the final time. On top of all this the humor is top notch.
