fails in comparison to any other batman animated movie
Edited from 3 episodes of "The New Batman Superman Adventures", this cartoon has Lex Luther accepting the Joker's offer to defeat Superman for him. But Batman follows his arch-nemeses to Metropolis and finds himself teaming up with Superman to take these two villains down. I was a huge fan of "Batman: The Animated Series", but found Superman's subsequent series to be lackluster at best. So this is a halfway decent film, namely the Batman half (Well it's not really a half, as Superman hogs up most of the running time). Overall the film is the weakest of any of the animated Batman films Doesn't help that the story is mediocre as best.
My Grade: C
DVD Extras: Cast & Crew Information; "The Joker's Challenge" game; Conversation with Producer Bruce Timm;How To Draw Batman & Superman featurettes; The Art Of Batman featurette; Music Montage; Theatrical Trailer; and Trailers for "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker", "Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero", "Scooby-Doo Sneak Peaks", & "Scooby-Doo" Teaser Trailer
