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.
As the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps faces a battle with an ancient enemy, Hal Jordan prepares new recruit Arisia for the coming conflict by relating stories of the first Green Lantern and several of Hal's comrades.
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.
Superman learns that there is a new superhero team around, The Elite. They quickly prove themselves a team of extraordinary power guided by a confident sense of direct practicality. As their popularity grows, Superman finds that they are outshining him with disquieting methods that grow more ruthless by the day even as the public appears to approve of their sneering dismissal of the Man of Steel's sense of moral restraint. However, as Lois Lane digs into the truth of the Elite, the secrets discovered combine with the team's escalating arrogance to create a menace determined to destroy Superman for their own power. Against that, Superman will have to resort to a disturbingly unorthodox solution to defeat them with a new perspective they cannot ignore. Written by

Dawn, I guess.
Why did you have to do this? Why can't you call someone else?
The Elite didn't take the fight to anyone else. They chose me.
No, you went after them!
They're slaughtering people and laughing about it.
Black can punch a hole through a mountain by thinking! The Hat tosses around demons like trained birds, and Pam...
They have to be stopped!
I think they can beat you!... I'm sorry. But they're willing to go places you won't. And they're so damn strong...
I heard a child say...

Superman vs The Elite is one of the darker animations of it's kind, and I liked that.
Superman comes into contact with a new superpowered group calling themselves The Elite, but they have a different way of doing things and that brings them all into conflict.
The Elite believe in killing the bad guys, and I sided with them throughout. Superman captures bad guys, they escape, countless people die, rinse wash repeat. I firmly believe that eradicating the threat makes more sense, and such a fear would also lower crime as well.
Because of that I found myself disliking the hero and that's simply bad writing, he came across self righteous and this all built to a damaging finale.
You see I was enjoying the film, it was one of the better DC outings I'd seen in a while so thats why the final 10 minutes were such a shame.
Superman vs The Elite will be a fantastic watch for folks who believe in Supermans message, but if you're like me this was radiate disappointment.
The Atomic Skull & Menagerie were great
Superman looks goofy, like Solomon Grundys slow half brother
This movie actually made me dislike Superman
Not keen on the ending
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
I firmly agree with The Elite over Superman
4 vs 1 is a "Fair fight"
