Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
When LexCorps accidentally unleash a murderous creature, Doomsday, Superman meets his greatest challenge as a champion. Based on the "The Death of Superman" storyline that appeared in DC Comics' publications in the 1990s.
Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
The Justice League are a team of great power, but also of personal secrets they thought safe. That changes when the immortal supervillain, Vandal Savage, has Batman's Batcave secretly raided to learn them all and more. Soon, the Leaguers are individually beset by their enemies who attack them with inescapable death traps specifically designed with that information. With that, all seems lost until an indomitable Knight and a young Titan combine to deliver salvation even as Savage uses the opportunity to implement a far grander scheme. Written by

The communication with Superman when he flies to the sun is traveling faster than the speed of light.
Radio waves/electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed as light, and should thus have taken several minutes to reach Superman when he was close to the sun. See more »
Our business is completed. You are, of course, free to go.
You hinted at a larger scheme and said there would be a place for us in it should we so choose.
I did. And the offer remains open to you all. But I fear you lack the vision to go along with me. The next stage of my plans might be considered genocidal.
What are you gonna do, destroy the world?
Nothing so crude. Half. Two-thirds at the most.
It's not a joke. It's the next step in a plan to transform the planet in a manner ...

Vandal Savage steals Batman's files on his Justice League teammates and uses them to learn the weaknesses of the heroes. He then sends the Legion of Doom to take out the Justice League one by one. Entertaining animated DC movie adapted from the comic book story "Tower of Babel." Some things were changed, of course. For instance, Hal Jordan and Cyborg were shoehorned into things because DC wants them to be a big deal these days. Most importantly, in the comic it was Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul behind everything. Here it's Vandal Savage and the Legion of Doom.
The voicework is mostly good. It's great to see Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, and Tim Daly back, as well as some of the other actors from the Justice League series. I've been unimpressed by the stunt casting of the DCAU movies from the late '00s to today. The animation is fine. The movie's not without flaws. As is often the case with these movies adapted from comic stories, they seem to take for granted the audience is familiar with the mythology and history behind the various characters and stories. This doesn't bother me specifically because I am generally familiar with the source material, but it could be a problem for viewers who don't read the comics or haven't watched many of the animated movies or the TV series. There's something to be said for making these stories accessible to both fans and new viewers. If you're a viewer familiar with the material, you should definitely like this. If you're new to it, I still think you will be able to enjoy it. You might not get every little detail but you won't be lost in the plot, I'm sure.
