4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of shorts, but only worth owning for those who don't already have the special editions of other DCU flicks, November 9, 2010
This review is from: Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam, is actually a compilation of DC Universe animated shorts, the main attraction being the main title of course, which is also the only one here that's new. In Superman/Shazam, the evil and ultra-powerful Black Adam (voiced by The Mummy himself Arnold Vosloo) seeks to take out the new inheritor of the Power of Shazam, which happens to be young Billy Batson (voiced by Zach Callison). Superman (voiced by Justice League Unlimited Supes George Newbern) shows up to lend a hand as Billy gets a crash course in being Captain Marvel (voiced by Jerry O'Connell), and there's some great action and animation throughout. As said before, Superman/Shazam is the only new short to be found here, but that's not saying that what's also included is bad either. The short featuring The Spectre is worth the price of admission in itself, as DC's resident spirit of vengeance (voiced by Gary Cole) exacts brutal retribution upon the guilty in a noir-ish type style, while a short starring Green Arrow (voiced by Neal McDonough) finds the Emerald Archer defending a princess from his arch-nemesis Merlyn (voiced by Malcolm McDowell), and finally a short starring Jonah Hex (voiced by Thomas Jane) finds the scarred bounty hunter taking on a murderous madam (voiced by Linda Hamilton). The other three shorts have been released before on special editions and Blu-Ray's of previous DC animated features, so if you already own them, there isn't really much here to warrant a purchase unless you're a die hard completest. If you don't already own them however, then by all means pick this up, as you won't find many better animated comic adaptations in the market today.
