Trivia

Much of the plot (Kara's arrival on Earth, her time with the Amazons, the kidnapping by Darkseid) is actually a review of the introduction of the modern incarnation of "Supergirl" as seen in earlier issues of the "Superman/Batman" comic. This is currently no longer considered canonical after DC's reboot in 2011 due to Supergirl's origin being changed in the "New 52" storyline when the issue was released in September 2011. See more »

Goofs

In the final battle, Darkseid Omega Beams Kara into unconsciousness. As he leaves her, she's lying face-up. But when Superman sees her, she's lying face-down. See more »

Quotes

The New (Super)girl In Town
31 May 2011 | by madbandit20002000See all my reviews

The DC Comics Animated Universe has another high quality, fun DTV animated film in its' library, the sequel to "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies". A little longer, "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" is darker and effective.

If you haven't seen the first one, don't read this and see it. If so, you know a big meteor, composes of Kryptonite, has landed in Gotham City Harbor, containing a Kryptonian spacecraft, containing Kara Zor-El (voiced by the cherub Summer Glau of "Firefly" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Superman's adolescent cousin. The Man of Steel (Tim Daly of "Private Practice" is more than welcoming to her than the brooding Batman (Kevin Conroy of "Dynasty"), who sees her as a potential weapon.

Apokolipian monarch Darkseid (Andre Braugher of "Men of A Certain Age") takes advantage of that point by kidnapping Kara and molding her to be his captain of his Femme Furies squad. Even with the help of Amazonian princess Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg reprises her role from "Justice League: The Animated Series") and ex-Furies leader/Mr. Miracle's wife Big Barda (Julianne Grossman), can the Big Blue Boy Scout and the Dark Knight save Kara from Darkseid's clutches?

Nicely adapted from the story arc/graphic novel, "The Supergirl from Krypton" by Jeph Loeb ("PE") and the late Michael Turner (miss him), "Apocalypse" packs a punch at 78 minutes, giving an ode to anime, with a fun script by Oscar nominated scribe Tab Murphy ("Gorillas In The Midst" and the animated takes on "Tarzan" and "Atlantis") and crackerjack direction by Lauren Montgomery ("Green Lantern: First Flight").

As usual, Daly and Conroy are perfect reprising the roles they did when they had solo shows. Braugher's no Mike Ironside, who voiced Apokolips's lord in "Superman: The Animated Series" and "JL", but is dutiful. The female voice actors are equally superb, yet it's screwball funny to head Ed Asner ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show", "Up") as Darkseid's lieutenant, Granny Goodness.

Like the other recent DC Comics animated films, "Apocalypse" has a hard PG-13 rating; this isn't light kids' fare. Still, it's damn cool.
