Quotes

Superman: Krypto's just feeling a little overprotective. Aren't you, boy?
Batman: I don't know. I've always considered him a good judge of character.
Superman: Look, she's been through a lot. Not to mention learning an entire language in less than a week. Why don't you cut her some slack?
Batman: We don't know anything about her. She claims to have no memory of anything prior to splashing down in Gotham Bay.
Superman: I'm not saying there aren't loose ends.

The New (Super)girl In Town
31 May 2011 | by (Queens, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

The DC Comics Animated Universe has another high quality, fun DTV animated film in its' library, the sequel to "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies". A little longer, "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" is darker and effective.

If you haven't seen the first one, don't read this and see it. If so, you know a big meteor, composes of Kryptonite, has landed in Gotham City Harbor, containing a Kryptonian spacecraft, containing Kara Zor-El (voiced by the cherub Summer Glau of "Firefly" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Superman's adolescent cousin. The Man of Steel (Tim Daly of "Private Practice" is more than welcoming to her than the brooding Batman (Kevin Conroy of "Dynasty"), who sees her as a potential weapon.

Apokolipian monarch Darkseid (Andre Braugher of "Men of A Certain Age") takes advantage of that point by kidnapping Kara and molding her to be his captain of his Femme Furies squad. Even with the help of Amazonian princess Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg reprises her role from "Justice League: The Animated Series") and ex-Furies leader/Mr. Miracle's wife Big Barda (Julianne Grossman), can the Big Blue Boy Scout and the Dark Knight save Kara from Darkseid's clutches?

Nicely adapted from the story arc/graphic novel, "The Supergirl from Krypton" by Jeph Loeb ("PE") and the late Michael Turner (miss him), "Apocalypse" packs a punch at 78 minutes, giving an ode to anime, with a fun script by Oscar nominated scribe Tab Murphy ("Gorillas In The Midst" and the animated takes on "Tarzan" and "Atlantis") and crackerjack direction by Lauren Montgomery ("Green Lantern: First Flight").

As usual, Daly and Conroy are perfect reprising the roles they did when they had solo shows. Braugher's no Mike Ironside, who voiced Apokolips's lord in "Superman: The Animated Series" and "JL", but is dutiful. The female voice actors are equally superb, yet it's screwball funny to head Ed Asner ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show", "Up") as Darkseid's lieutenant, Granny Goodness.

Like the other recent DC Comics animated films, "Apocalypse" has a hard PG-13 rating; this isn't light kids' fare. Still, it's damn cool.
