Product Description

When a spaceship splashes down in Gotham Harbor, Batman and Superman encounter a mysterious Kryptonian with powers as great as Superman's. When Darkseid gets wind of this, he has the Kryptonian abducted and brought under his control on Apokolips. It's up to Batman and Superman to retrieve the Kryptonian, forcing them to infiltrate Darkseid's hostile world where superpowerful threats lurk around every corner. This story is based on Jeff Loeb's popular mini-series from the Superman/Batman comic books.

Amazon.com

DC Universe's direct-to-DVD animated feature offers not just another team-up of its most iconic heroes, but an origin story for Supergirl, whose arrival on Earth is chronicled here. Picking up from where Superman/Batman: Public Enemies left off, a shard of the giant Kryptonite meteor that threatened Earth crashes in Gotham City, bringing Superman and Batman to the scene. A young girl is found within the wreck and is revealed to be Kara Zor-El, Superman's niece, and his equal (or better) in regard to power. Being a teenager, she struggles to accurately wield those abilities, which requires the Man of Steel to call in Wonder Woman for some superhero training. Unfortunately, Kara's talents have also caught the eye of evil New God Darkseid, who wants Supergirl to lead his royal guard of Female Furies. With the assistance of former Fury Big Barda, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman must travel to Darkseid's home planet of Apokolips and fight for Supergirl's freedom. Though not quite the seamless blend of drama and action that was Batman: Under the Red Hood, Apocalypse is a solid adventure that delivers where it counts--most notably, the final showdown between the children of Krypton and Darkseid--while paying homage to its comic book roots. Vocal talent, led by Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy as Superman and Batman, respectively, is top-notch, with Andre Braugher lending the right note of imperiousness to Darkseid and Summer Glau capturing Kara's impulsiveness; Edward Asner is also on hand as Granny Goodness, with Susan Eisenberg returning as Wonder Woman. The animation style, inspired by the late Michael Turner, is visually striking, and the extras are typically first-rate: the DCU Showcase, directed by Joaquim Dos Santos (who pulled similar duties for Jonah Hex) here focuses on Green Arrow (Neal McDonough), who takes on Merlyn (Malcolm McDowell) to stop an assassination plot. There's also a sneak peek at the next DCU feature, All-Star Superman, as well as featurettes on the complicated worlds of the New Gods, and parts one and two of "Little Girl Lost" from Superman: The Animated Series that were handpicked by Bruce Timm. --Paul Gaita

I watched this movie with my little niece the other day. I'm a big comics fan and I thought it wasn't bad. There was some good action, a bit of humor and pathos, and the animation wasn't mind blowing but it did the job. All in all, this is a decent if not memorable movie. That's my take on it.

My niece on the other hand loved it. She's in her pre-pre-teen years and while she loves animation (she still calls them cartoons) what she really likes are stories with strong female leads. She likes it when girls are the heroes. I think that's why she loved this movie.

You have a few cute scenes with Super Girl (Kara Zor-El) palling around with Clark Kent when she first arrives on Earth. You have some great fight scenes involving Super Girl, Wonder Woman, Big Barda, the Female Furies and an entire nation of Amazon Warriors. This movie showcases tough, capable women warriors as well as a strong, tough-minded teenage girl. My niece ate it up. She can't wait for more like this. She is even getting into the comic books. Seeing "girl superheroes" on an even footing with "boy superheroes" made a big impression on her. I hope the studios produce more like this one. So does my niece.

I say that because that's really what this story is about. It isn't really about Superman/Batman Vs. Darkseid as it is more about them (along with Wonder Woman and former Darkseid soldier Bertha) fighting over the fate of Kara Zor-El, better known as Supergirl.

Kara comes to earth and is lost when Batman finds her. Superman and Batman both argue over what to do with her while Wonder Woman enters the fray and takes her to train with her on Themescyra. Meantime, Darkseid has been monitoring the events and decides to make Kara one of his new lieutenants!

What comes is an all out battle over the fate of Kara. Will she become one of earth's newest saviors or one of their biggest threats?

Also included is 4 episodes from the 90's Superman series that centers around Darkseid (Apokolips....Now! pts. 1 and 2) and Supergirl (in her own two parter). You also get a 10 minute short featuring Green Arrow and some behind the scenes extras mainly discussing Darkseid and the mythology behind him, Mr. Miracle, Orion and New Genesis. All created by the late, great Jack Kirby!

Overall, a good use of $20 if you have that to spend!

Well, we have Superman, Batman, Wonderwoman, Darkseid, and some step characters really expressive, like Barda, the furies and a solid story. And, introducing Kara Zor-el, the Supergirl, back from the death!!! Lots of extras, including the old Kara story, back from the beginning till her tragic death on Crisis on Infinite Earths, best DC saga ever!!!! Really this is a must have on the fans collection, the animation is beautiful, and, whoever likes Superman or Batman, or even Wonderwoman, will enjoy a really good time watching this pic.

Superman / Batman Apocalypse... mainly dealing with a newly arrived Kryptonian, an overdue return of Wonder Woman
(voiced by Susan Eisenberg) and the being that menaced the DC Universe beyond Lex Luthor... Darkseid. As many
disagreements that Superman and Batman have had in roughly 70+ years, they actually are more alike than not so.
Granny Goodness, played by Edward Asner.... great choice. The `Apocalypse' incarnation of Darkseid is more reserved,
patient and yet... devious (as only the great Jack Kirby could develop). The most brutal battle between Superman
and Darkseid other than `Twilight' from Justice League and `Destroyer' from Justice League Unlimited. Intense and
loaded with action.

What these other reviewers fail to realize this is an amazing adaptation of Jeff Loebs', and Michael Turner's Superman/Batman Volume 2. The animation reflects The late Turner's artwork, scene for scene. The pacing is quick, and Timm's production values are outstanding.
The retelling of the Supergirl saga, updates that particular chapter in Superman history, placing Darkseid into the mix just makes for more cohesive storytelling. The extras, are right on and DC pulls no punches in offering it's audience, a total package of classic animation
Thank you DCU for releasing this direct to DVD release

Format: DVD
The good: I like the cast and the art is very well animated (though some of the designs are a little weak).

The Bad: the characters play hot potato with the idiot ball the entire script, failing to work together like friends should (seriously, the Amazons and Wonder Woman kidnap Supergirl, and the damage Supergirl causes resisting is what they point to as a reason for taking her in; question, why didn't Wonder Woman just say, "hey Clark, I have experience training women with super powers, let me teach her and have her stay on Paradise Island for a while", in stead of the kidnapping). And when the characters act out of character, and the dialogue and story progression are so stilted and poorly done, it is hard to care about the action sequences.

I love DC comics, and I love Timm's animation productions, and I don't think this measured up to the lofty work of the past, nor stood alone as a good picture on its own merits.

Agreed on the counterposting 1 star review point. The proper action is using the voting button to say the review is not helpful. Posting a 1 star counter review perpetuates, not solves the problem.

Slip Cover & Digital Copy from Amazon???
The first one, Public Enemies, I ordered from amazon. The one that they sent me didn't have the slipcover. So, they sent me another one. That didn't have the slipcover, either. They said that they probably wouldn't be able to send me a copy with a cover so they haven't sent me any more. Luckily,... Read More

Stories that DC/Warner Premiere Should Adapt to Features
I think Under the Red Hood was the best of the buch but Death in the Family has always been one of my favorite stories. To be honest I think there is to much Superman in these things. I like All Star Superman but wish the Bat could get a deep story like that one.
