The following video clip is reportedly the set-up to the Injustice story mode. If you're familiar with the first six chapters of the Injustice comic book -- you've got nothing to worry about.

Update: After being removed for copyright violotion, the video has since been redistributed via Gamestop.

As noted -- if you've read the tie-in comic [specifically issue #2/Chapter 4] -- you're not going to see anything new. The bombshell of that particular chapter is realized here in real-time, seeing Superman, Joker & Batman play out the scene that starts The Regime.

The video sequence comes courtesy of PS3GamingHD [via @MKServer]. It is believed to be the opening to the story mode, but it does skip over the events of The Line trailer, which set this up.

Not to be overlooked -- an opening quote from Lex Luthor: "I can say without a doubt that there are an infinite number of universes. Some are just like our own... but for one or two significant events, exactly the same."

Not the evil geniuses' most eloquent of moments, but it does harken back to the question of alternate universes within the plot of the game. We got our first hint in official concept art [full story], before the existence of parallel universe counterparts was blown open in the Harley Quinn Story trailer.

Injustice: Gods Among Us promises content in abundance, with modes like S.T.A.R. Labs Missions expanding the scope beyond the central plot.
