“Dredd” Villain’s Backstory Explored in Motion Comic Prequel

by Caleb Hamilton

Mega City One, a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and (instant) executioner. Dredd (Karl Urban), the ultimate Judge, is challenged with stopping a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed. You can learn all about this drug’s supplier, Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), in a motion comic that serves as a prequel to the upcoming film. Check it out after the jump!

While it could’ve been longer, this gives you a quick look at Ma-Ma’s past and her motivation for what she does in the movie. Will Judge Dredd be able to stop the distribution of “Slo-Mo” and take down Ma-Ma?

Dredd 3D opens in theaters September 21st.
