Greetings Bat boys and girls. Time for a new match-up. Lex Luthor vs. Batman. Just to reiterate, we’re using the same criteria as Superman vs. Batman.
We’ll be looking at Jeph Loeb’s Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. If you’re not familiar with the plot, Lex puts a bounty on Superman’s head and Bats help Big Blue get out of trouble. Especially considering Lex is the President at this point in continuity. Now, to business kids.

Round three. Hush shall be our battleground. Towards the end of the first volume, one of the greatest showdowns actually occurred within the DC Universe’s continuity. This occurred in the original storyline for Hush, an exceptional book written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by the legendary Jim Lee. Kids, the artwork is exceptional. I’ll try not to gush too much, but this is the first book I picked up as an adult and chose to read. It will always be…

While the Nolan Batman films have done many terrific things with the film franchise, one of the best things about the two films is how well the Nolans and David Goyer have been able to choose the correct supporting characters to inhibit their Batman Universe. Mainly the villains; each villain they have chosen has carried much more dramatic weight and meaning to the films. After Christopher Nolan's announcement that The Riddler will not be in the upcoming film, The Dark Knight Rises, many fans now are scratching their heads wonder who will be villain?
Well before I run down the…

The next film from Warner Bros. in the line of DC Animation gives us another Superman/Batman film. Last year around this same time, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies was released and I thought it was a very poor film. So this year when they announced Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, I have to say I did not have high hopes.
Ultimately, this proved to be a little bit of a surprise.
Superman/Batman: Apocalypse takes the origin story of Supergirl from the pages of Superman/Batman and turns it into a film. The story was originally written…

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse marks DC's ninth entry in their animated films universe, which is somewhat a sequel to last fall's animated film adaptation, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. Fortunately for the viewers, Apocalypse delivers a much more emotional and intense storyline compared to the previous film.
Upon viewing, Batman: Under the Red Hood, I was given a new sign of hope. One of things that film was successful in doing was, presenting us with a storyline that was new and was not a exactly "faithful" adaptation to the comic book series it was based…

So the latest DC Universe animated Direct-to-Video film has come out, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, which of course is taken from the Supergirl From Krypton storyline in Superman/Batman #s 8-13 written by Jeph Loeb and art by the late Michael Turner.
I went in this with some low expectations, considering the way the “ripped from the comics” (Superman: Doomsday, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Batman: Under The Red Hood) had left me a bit lukewarm in terms of how they dealt with what needed to be changed in order to fit a narrative that needed…
