Superman and Supergirl take on the cybernetic Brainiac, who boasts that he possesses "the knowledge and strength of 10,000 worlds." This movie has a pretty cool opening i won't lie Supergirl comes and she's a total badass saving Lois but also it's Brainiac who i also liked he comes and starts sucking things you know in order to become stronger and stronger each time but in the end as always Superman destroys him which it makes sense because it's not easy to beat the Man of Steel. There's a nice pacing, story and some action i had fun with the film and personally i think DC animation is much better than Marvel's cause it's dark but also fun and not boring or anything. Superman Unbound gets an A+ pretty good movie.
