I'll keep it simple. It has a character called Karate Kid (!?) - yeah I'm not joking! The best scene features Bizarro and Solomon Grundy having a low IQ conversation. That's it. Bad beyond belief. Imagine the power of time travel preventing this flick from being made. That may be a better story.

As a side note, why are they making more and more preschool friendly animated movies? Marvel's Black Widow and Punisher movie was equally bad. The days of JL Unlimited storytelling seem to be over. :(

P.S. The guy who said that this is more watchable than JL: War clearly doesn't watch enough animated films.
