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.

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…

Next up on the DC Universe Animated Direct To Video docket is Superman-Batman: Apocalypse which some are calling a sequel to Public Enemies, but in reality it is a sequel only in that it is the next story line that follows in the S/B Jeph Loeb series. Following a quick one shot featuring Robin, Tim Drake, and Conner Kent the story, titled Supergirl in the trade that came out in 2005 played out in issues 8-13 (running through the spring and summer of 2004).
To set things up, a little history…
