I have to admit, I've been a life-long DC Comics fan, so as much as I like seeing new Marvel cards; I get way more excited about a new DC set. Today is no exception, as we here at Pojo get to be the first to show you a new cards from the DC Legends set. The Legends idea is a great one; allowing fans of the classic and iconic characters from the last 50 years of comics to get an extra big helping of their favorite characters. Everybody loves Superman, Batman, The Flash, etc...of course, some of us love their evil counterparts even more. We love it even more when they all get together to make the heroes lives more difficult (and take over the world). The Injustice Gang fills that role nicely.

Created to counter the Justice League, the Injustice Gang is usually a Who's Who of Who's Bad in the DCU.

The incarnation I'm most fond of is the one from Grant Morrison's JLA run; featuring Lex Luthor, Joker, Dr. Light, Mirror Master, Ocean Master, and Circe. They made life difficult for the JLA, and now they give you the ability to make life difficult for everyone at the table foolish enough to oppose you.

Injustice For All is reminiscent of Bad Press, an ongoing plot twist that made your opponent's plot twists and locations cost one more to play. Injustice For All takes that a step further by making plot twists cost 1 more for everyone to play, including you. However, it doesn't stop at just making them cost 1 more, if you play your cards right, you can shut out every plot twist in every deck.

See, Injustice For All makes all plot twists cost 1 more for every chaos counter on Injustice For All, and Injustice For All gets a chaos counter every time an Injustice gang character attacks a player directly.

It doesn't have to be your character, and it doesn't even have to be an opponent. If your opponent happens to be playing Injustice Gang also, or more than one opponent in the case of a multiplayer game, then Injustice For All can keep gaining more and more counters, locking out more and more plot twists.
Multiple copies of Injustice For All would trigger off of each direct attack, and that really would add chaos to the game.

"But wait!", you ask. "Doesn't that hose your own deck too?" Sure, it will make your own plot twists cost more to play...but unlike your opponent, you know that your plot twists are going to start costing more.
That's why you stock your deck with other cards that do the same thing as plot twists, without having to be plot twists. Locations, equipment, and characters can duplicate the effects of plot twists in the hands of the smart deckbuilder, and while your opponent is staring at his useless fistful of blue, you're equipping Lex Luthor with some Power Armor, sending the Joker into the fray with help from an Arkham Asylum activation, or discard Dr. Light to give Dr.
Light some extra juice. If you just really want to play plot twists, prepare your deck with 0 and 1 cost tricks, so you can pile on the hurt while your opponent's deck just becomes a pile.

This card will make you unpopular in multiplayer, just to warn you.

We'll be back next week with another exclusive DC Legends preview, to get you ready for your local Release Celebration.

What time is it? Preview Time!

Injustice For All
Ongoing Plot Twist/3
Play only if you control an Injustice Gang character.
Ongoing: Whenever an Injustice Gang character attacks a player directly, put a chaos counter on Injustice For All.
Plot twists cost all players 1 more to play for each chaos counter on Injustice for All.

I always liked the Injustice Gang mechanic of putting cards into your opponents hand and then penalizing them for it. And what better way to spit in their face by telling them they can’t play any plot twists? With the crazy 4-drop Joker, there was always a plot twist playing problem for your opponent. Now, with Injustice for All, there’s an even bigger problem.

Whenever an (not necessarily your own) Injustice Gang character attacks a player directly, plot twist essentially cost 1 more to play. Multiple direct attacks will cause problems. Multiple Injustice For All will cause problems. Mirror matches in drafts will cause problems.

But there’s two choices, you either play this or the Joker. Both have their pros and cons. Injustice For All restricts all players from playing plot twists. But it can be easily abused and searched for as early as turn 3. Joker only prevents your opponents plot twists, but has a weakness of being a character with a big red bullseye.

My advice, use Injustice For All if you feel you don’t need to play any other plot twists, such as a deck full of locations. Otherwise, the Joker is superior.

Constructed: 3/5
Sealed: 3/5

Too bad it doesn’t actually support the card mechanic…


Its preview time again!  Lets check this one out...

Injustice for All

3 cost Plot Twist

Play only if you control an Injustice Gang character.

Ongoing: When an Injustice Gang character attacks a player directly, put a chaos counter on Injustice for All.

Plot twists cost all players 1 more to play for each chaos counter on Injustice for All.

Hello, now, whats this?  Lets stop everyone from playing Plot Twists.  This card looks quite fun.  Um... I really don't have much to say on it, unfortunatly because I don't know how Injustice Gang decks run, but I can say single card strategy that this one looks like fun.  :)

Sealed: 2/5 Not so amazing here as you may not end up with a lot of Injustice Gang characters in sealed.

Constructed: 4/5 With this card, you can quickly make it impossible for your opponents to play plot twists. 
jajais4u This looks good, actually. A little scary. Did we forget that Revenge Squad/Injustice Gang had a little thing going on a while back? This here is the link between the two decks. Honestly, I see how I could abuse this kinda easy. Maybe revenge of the X-Men? I like this a lot...
