Superman vs. The Elite 

Directed by Michael Chang (DC Comics/Warner)

Despite the man of steel’s super strength, what carries the weight of Superman vs. The Elite is its well-woven social commentary. It loosely, yet effectively, explores humanity’s lust for capital punishment in the name of safety and justice, spawned by a global disdain for Superman’s refusal to kill his adversaries. Superman’s moral code battles this hypocrisy while he goes blow for blow against young super-powered humans known as The Elite, who gain global support for an energizing campaign and their murderous conviction. The movie sports some great dialogue that springs from a refreshingly candid take on the Superman-Lois Lane relationship, as well as Superman’s interactions with The Elite---all compelling characters. Vibrant animation and a strong voice cast work with the slick writing to create a self-contained movie that can be enjoyed by the casual viewer or the hardcore fan.
