While Marvel have got out a few live action movies, DC have been pumping out animated movies.... although I do prefer the live action stuff, DC have produced solid work and have built up quite a large collection of movies.

The latest introduces Kara and is partially set on Apokolips. Yep, once again we have various superheroes quite easily going up against Darkseid, and while Darkseid should stomp them without a second pause, well, I'm sure you can see where I'm going. (Not that it's that easy, but the worse the heroes seem to end up with is a couple of bruises, whereas Darkseid's forces...)

As well as a set of movies, DC have also set up a continuing set of actors. Kevin Conroy has Batman's role set, and Tim Daly is the voice of Superman. Susan Eisenberg has Wonder Woman, and so on... but as this is Kara, we need a new voice. And so we now have the addition of Summer Glau (who also plays Supergirl in DC Universe Online, although I have no idea which came first). But the best casting is, of course, Ed Asner as Granny Goodness. Just spot on casting there.

Despite the range of movies, there hasn't really been a standout one (although I could biasedly point at Green Lantern...). Apocalypse is... good. Not great, but... good.
