You’ve probably noticed that we’re more than a little excited about Injustice: Gods Among Us dropping next week. As fans of DC Comics and fighting games, this is like a dream that’s come true and taken us out for ice cream. Right now, there’s little that’s exciting us more than the chance to finally sit down and play the game.
Aloha, and welcome to Caption This! our monthly mash-up of collectibles, captions and cleverness. If you’re new to the beach, the rules are simple. We give you an awesome photo featuring a newly released DC Collectible, and you comment with your best caption for it. Unable to come up with your own caption, but see one you think is really righteous?
We’ve all be there. Discussing our favorite super heroes with our friend (let’s randomly say, oh, Jimmy) and suddenly the conversation turns to who would win a fight.

It’s been a little while since Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained landed a pair of Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (for Christoph Waltz’s sublime performance as Dr. Schultz), and we still have another week until the movie hits Blu-Ray and DVD. And you know what we’ve realized?
Despite the shocking event in the final pages of issue #10, the Ravagers finally come together as a team -- and more importantly, a family. But a visit from Deathstroke, world’s deadliest assassin, changes all of that as their world is turned upside down! Ravagers fall, a new threat rises, and the stakes shoot higher than ever for DC's on-the-run team of teen heroes!
If we were a roll of a certain popular, circle-shaped hard candy rather than a comic book publisher, we’d be one of the multi-flavored ones. At least this week. (And yes, we do spend our lunch break thinking up analogies like that. What of it?) We started the week off with a laugh and a wink before getting very serious for a moment.
Real talk, guys.
Last year, DC Entertainment launched the We Can Be Heroes campaign, dedicated to raising $2 million dollars over the course of two years in order to aid the 8 million lives affected by the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.
