NetherRealm studios continued their Injustice 2 info drop today with a closer look at Supergirl's role in the fighting game's highly anticipated story mode. The third in a series of Shattered Alliances trailers gives fans their first look at Black Adam's gameplay and super move, as well as a good deal of Supergirl's origins, including the destruction of her home planet and a baby Superman.

The biggest takeaway from the trailer is our first look at Supergirl's side of the story. While we've seen her in action in various trailers and in Injustice 2's closed beta, this is the first time we know much about her motivations, or her relationship with her cousin. Based on appearances, it would seem that Kara's first interactions with Superman happen at the beginning of the game, as she is seen fighting alongside him and Wonder Woman.
At some point in the story, she probably realizes how twisted he's become, and will go over to Batman's side of things. In several comics, Supergirl is actually more powerful than Superman, despite being less familiar with how to control her powers on Earth. With that in mind, I put good money on Kara Zor-El being the one who takes Superman down for good, but that's just speculation.
Black Adam is also a great reveal, and easily has one of the coolest supermoves we've seen in the game so far, if that is indeed what is shown in the trailer. The footage doesn't give a lot to speculate on in regards to his moveset, but if the recent trailer releases have been anything to go by, he should have his own personal trailer sometime soon.
