[Anime] Superman vs. The Elite

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXUu91Jr ··· u91JrpzA


On DVD/Blu-ray June 12, 2012.

In Superman vs. The Elite, Superman's effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as "The Elite," appear on the scene. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy, putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.

It was decent. They changed voices on the main characters again, and it was a fairly dark storyline. Worth watching.

Who does Superman? From the clip he sounds like the same one from the animated series (before JL).

I'll have to pick this up, it looks great.

Watched it last night on Amazon, pretty good.

I like these "WB Premiere" videos. as they tend to be darker and for more mature audiences.

Overall I thought the movie was really well done, but the art style left something to be desired. Superman was Superchin, and looked wrong. But I liked the story. It does a good job of explaining what's wrong with superheroes. They just catch the bad guys, the bad guys escape, run wild, get caught again, etc. etc. Never ending cycle, and rather unrealistic.

On a side note, when looking up this movie on Amazon last night, I noticed Justice League: Doom, and realized I hadn't seen that one yet. Short DL later, I have to say, I liked that one better. GREAT story. The part that was foolish was Superman's question to Batman at the end: "Why is there no contingency plan for yourself?" Ummm, because I'm human and have no special powers? Just tech? Duuuuuuuuuh!"

Still a great story. If you missed this one, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

I also loved Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, and Batman: Under the Red Hood.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies was decent.

I didn't like the voices, the animation style, the storyline, and the fact that Superman dies and is cloned by Lex.

Didn't care for Justice League: The New Frontier either.

The DC Animated movies that I like are:

• Superman vs. The Elite
• Justice League: Doom
• Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
• Superman: Doomsday
• Wonder Woman
• Green Lantern: First Flight
• Superman/Batman: Apocalypse
• Batman: Under the Red Hood

• Superman/Batman: Public Enemies was decent.
