Superman vs The Elite
On DVD today is the new animated video “Superman vs The Elite.” This is the 15th superhero animated movie by DC/Warner Bros. It is part of their DC Universe Animated Original Movies line. I have seen many others in the series, although I have not seen this yet, the reviews for this are very positive. This is on my short list to view.
Here is the synopsis of the movie:
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, led by British public identity hero Manchester Black. 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 and decidedly non-lethal Man of Steel. (wikipedia).
This story is based on “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice & the American Way?” Published in March 2001 the movie was adapted and written by Joe Kelly, who also wrote the original comic and this animated film was directed by Michael Chang.
