This unusual chapter in the Superman saga finds the Man of Steel questioning his relevance when a new, more aggressive, crop of superhero crusaders captures the public's imagination. When catastrophe hits Earth, Superman springs into action as usual, but this time he gets some unexpected help from a new squad of superheroes who call themselves The Elite. Composed of four powerful beings and led by the brash and calculating Manchester Black, this new force brings a raw, wild mentality to the battle against evil, never hesitating to kill their foes -- even on a massive scale -- something Superman would never consider. Despite public support for the bloody methods of The Elite, Superman knows they are in the wrong, creating more harm than good. Tensions between Superman and The Elite rise until Superman challenges them to a showdown. The residents of Metropolis watch from a safe distance as the superheroes fight on the Moon.

Strong violence countered by positive messages, good story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Superman vs. the Elite is one in a series of feature-length animated DC Comics superhero movies that have been released direct-to-video. Like the others, it's filled with fantasy and comic-book violence, though the movie's ultimate message is one of tolerance and fairness. Language is fairly frequent without being terribly strong and includes many British slang words, like "bugger" and "wanker," as well as several uses of "ass" and "damn." There's some sly but frequent sexual innuendo, and one major character seems to have a drinking problem.
