Michael C. Hall,
Several ways the Fatal Five are depicted significantly different from the source material: Mano is the leader rather than Tharok. The Emerald Eye is shown effecting Mon-El. In the comics, its power is based on Kryptonite and Mon-El is one of the few Legionnaires immune to it. The Emerald Eye's power is being related to Green Lantern technology. Validus is shown as slightly taller than human with equivalent strength to Superman rather than being around 50 ft. tall and much more powerful. Tharok can create weaponry from his body. He does not have this ability in the comics. Mano and the Empress are in a relationship. See more »
Being DC the creator of animated masterpieces like Mask of the Phantasm, Under the Red Hood, Gods and Monsters, the Dark Knight Returns, Crisis on Infinite Earths and a long etc, I was letdown by this. Sure, it had a lot going on, specially the classic animation of the Justice League, the greatest superhero cartoon show only second to the original Batman the animated series. But this was this film's only redeeming quality. I enjoy marvel films on the big screen, and without being a hardcore DC fanboy, I know DC has the best story telling in the supehero genre. Too bad DC hasn't been able to bring that success to the big screen (with a few exceptions like the first classic Superman film and Nolan's Batman trilogy). But animated films were Dc's strongest point. Except this time with this bland film. Not the worst, but very bad in comparison to most of it's predecessors. I don't hate it, but it sure was a letdown not even worth discussing.
