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

Superman All Star was a waste of time for me, I didn't enjoy the moments spent watching it; maybe that is why I enjoyed this one. A step up in the area of story compared to All-Star and a step down in the area animation.
Director Michael Chang, made good use of the time, as we see the dark side of being a hero, this movie mixes it all up, politics, economy and then people's opinion.
It is easy to kill the bad guys once and for all, but Sup believes everyone deserves a fair trial, this belief leads to some of the villains breaking out of their holding cell or get released from jail and innocent people die as a result.
That is my view, but that doesn't warrant anybody to go kill anyone. Killing means stooping to the levels of the villains, there must be a better way. That is Sups story.
The Elite from England had a different perspective to this a view many share, a view that means if you are bad you are going down (down as in six feet under, dead). This led to the death of terrorists, villains and world leaders.
Now looking at their view from a magnifying glass makes you wonder is violence the only answer? Is death the only option out? The movie deals with all this issues and never letting go of the fact that Superman is a goody goody. At one time Sup and the Elite were a team. When the truth of the Elite was exposed to Sup via Lois, the Elite and Sup drew a line and battle began.
There in Metropolis the battle raged and it looked like Sup had gone rogue, as cars were flying here and there destruction in every corner, all being done by Sup himself, as he decides to show the Elite what it means to dish out fire for fire.
Other than the fighting and the destruction (which were cool if I may add), the movie lacked a good story to link you from point A to B.
Why they decided to settle for that mediocre animation is also something that is worth thinking about, the animation made me want to puke, I just never got use to it as the time passed.
Is this a good deal? Well the choice is yours, you will like this flick if and only if, you are a fan of the man in tights.
