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.

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

I choose this rating because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that “She will prove a treasure for your world.” (Superman Translating Kryptonian) A mysterious spaceship from Planet Krypton crashes on Earth with a beautiful girl inside, and everyone wants to meet the new kid. Superman embraces the connection to his past, Batman suspects a traitor, Wonder Woman senses a kindred spirit, and Darkseid desires a champion. But this feisty teen has her own ideas, none of which include a secret identity, a cape or heroics. It will take a life or death battle with Darkseid to uncover her true purpose on Earth. A dynamic voice cast Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Andre Braugher and Summer Glau highlights this DC Universe Animated Original Movie introducing the world to Supergirl! What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.

The Big Three (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) did a GREAT job of making this animated adventure realistic. The most dominant flaw is that the movie should have been darker as it pertains to Superman's character and and the dialogue sessions.

I compare all DC Animated Adventure to Under the Red Hood. This movie is Extremely Good but it does not Measure us to that emotionally gripping storyline.

As a stand alone, it is Fantastic!
