Superman Movies Animated list

Son of Batman is the 20th DVD film released in the “DC Animated Universe Original Movies” collection since October of 2007. Debuting on DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday from Warner Bros. Home Video (a division of Time Warner), it’s sadly one of the worst such films in the library. With flat acting, trite dialogue, and a simplistic plot that turns Talia into a damsel-in-distress, this is not one of the DCAU’s shining moments. But while I may review the film at length early next week, for now I wanted to focus on the positive. In short, spanning from Superman: Doomsday in 2007 to Son of Batman next week, here are the five very best DC Animated Universe Original DVD features, along with what we can commercial lessons we can take from their respective artistic successes.

5. Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
I’ve complained any number of times about how the powers-that-be have become over-dependent on Batman and Superman stories, so this 2013 entry was a true breath of fresh air. Yes, it involves the Justice League and Batman plays a key supporting role, but this is a Flash adventure through-and-through. It’s a classic “I messed with time travel and screwed up the future” saga, with grand-scale action and emotion to spare. It cleverly uses the vocal talents from various prior DCAU projects, with Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman, Dana Delany as Lois Lane, and Kevin Conroy cameo-ing as “our-world” Batman. The film works and the action is grand, but the biggest kick last year was finally seeing a DCAU feature centered around someone other than the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel.

4. Superman Vs. The Elite
Loosely based on Joe Kelly’s acclaimed comic issue “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?”, this ripping and thoughtful Superman adventure takes a hard look at the absolutist morality of the big blue boy scout. The Man of Steel is shown up by a new band of superheroes who aren’t afraid to exterminate their opponents. The original comic, from early 2001, was a commentary on those who preferred their superheroes in the Spawn/Punisher variety. But the 2012 film used the material for a look at relative morality, of in a post-9/11 America, contrasting that of course with the heightened violence in a super-powered universe. The film doesn’t exactly offer any real answers, and the ending is a slight cop-out, but it was using superhero stories as a metaphor for drone warfare and extra-judicial executions way before it was cool.

3. Green Lantern: First Flight
Warner Bros. could have saved themselves much hassle and arguably lost a lot less money if they had just produced a live-action remake of this 2009 cop drama and called it the Green Lantern movie. The film is somewhat of an origin story, but it also doesn’t waste a moment of time with any “hero’s journey” shtick, sending Hal Jordan into space immediately and having him just as quickly accept his new role as an outer space cop. The rest of the film is basically Jordan and his mentor Sinestro solving interplanetary crime as the rookie learns the ropes from the veteran.
