    Omniman had to be discreet because he knew the heroes of his Earth would never side with him. Injustice Superman got most of his universe on his side. He isn't a buffoon because he didn't need to use the same methods as Omniman.


    Injustice isn't really about evil Superman, it's a typical dystopic future power fantasy about a resistance vs a regime.
    This is like saying Avatar wasn't about Aang or Star Wars wasn't about Luke Skywalker. Just because other stuff is going on doesn't mean there isn't a central character to the story.

    Omniman pretty much had the world in the palm of his hands, he just ultimately couldn't go through with it, his methods over all worked perfectly fine arguable more so than Injustice Superman's until he had to face Mark.

    Aang and Luke Skywalker are the protagonist, Superman is the antagonist in Injustice.

    Injustice Superman practically took over the entire world over night. Omniman had to wait years to make his move and then failed requiring another Viltrumite to step in.




    Aang and Luke Skywalker are the protagonist, Superman is the antagonist in Injustice.
    Omniman isn't the main protagonist of his story either.

    Superman is the main figure of the Injustice games, honestly. Batman may be the "hero" figure, but the story of the games is all centered on Superman and Super-verse characters (Clark himself, Lex Luthor, Kara, Brainiac).

    Not sure how Superman looks better here. Its the whole theme of the year four that Superman can't do anything by himself.
    Superman was already proven to be above shazam in injustice. So it shows WW once again, as the weakest of them all. SM also took the explosion of captain atom blank point range. injustice WW was at a bigger distance and yet she almost died and was not fully recovered after 7 months. You call that powerful? Injustivce SM is far from being treated as badly as WW.

    Trash can take over the world(that could literally happen at the rate we are going)..But,it would remain trash..Unless, someone else tries to clean it up.
    I applaud for being the other side of the debate.The interesting thing about injustice superman is his trauma from nuking metropolis and being the gun that killed his wife.That's it.But,they have never had us truly sympathies or wanted us to root for the bad guy in anyway.That happens when the villains are awesome.

    No he isn’t. It’s 100% centered around Batman. He gets the majority of the screen time and the lines, he’s the one who ultimately knocks Brainiac out (it should’ve been Kara).

    Kara should have beaten superman as well.Instead we got batman..The mortal kombat guys clearly have a favourite.

    That's from Tom Taylor under whom Superman was indeed more powerful than Diana. But not under the new writer Brian Bucceleto who made a point of humiliating Superman in every fight. And how's Shazam beating Hercules who knocked out Superman in one punch shows Superman above Shazam?
