Embittered by Superman's (voiced by Tim Daly--"The Nine") heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor (voiced by Powers Boothe--"Deadwood") forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Braniac (voiced by Lance Henriksen--Appaloosa). Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor redesigns Braniac specifically to defeat the Man of Steel. But when Braniac betrays Luthor and reveals its sinister plans for world domination, Superman must brave the mysterious Phantom Zone to find the strength to survive this deadly showdown.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Superman: Brainiac Attacks is an excellent animated standalone Superman adventure that features heavy-hitting -- but exciting -- fight scenes and threat. The fights between the Man of Steel (voiced by Tim Daly) and the bio armor clad Brainiac (Lance Henriksen) destroy buildings and cause chaos. But members of the public are always shown to be running away from the destruction. Military hardware is also used against Superman, with a bombardment of missiles and rockets fired at him. Superman's friend Lois Lane (Dana Delany) faces mortal danger but he manages to save her. Superman and Lois share a kiss, while other characters discuss dating and crushes. A character ogles photos of a villain and calls a woman he works with a "geek" in comparison. The women in the movie are drawn in a style that gives them long legs and poses that make sure their legs are noticed.
