Score: 6/10

Reign of the Supermen is the next movie that’s come out of DC Comics animated division and continues the story of their animated movie universe. It’s an okay movie. I mostly watched it because I want something at the same quality and level of Batman: The Animated Series and this is about as close as I can get. I do like the continuity between movies.

Reign of the Supermen is based largely off the comic book story, just like the animated movie The Death of Superman. Superman has just died and four new mysterious Supermen have appeared and seem to want to protect Metropolis. As the identities of these new Supermen are revealed, a grave new threat arises and the only one who can stop it is the now deceased Superman.

The movie is just okay. I’m familiar with the story since I read the comic books. There weren’t any mind blowing changes and there weren’t any emotional high or low notes. The movie just… was.

Animation was fine. Music was fine. Voice acting was fine. Story was okay.

Overall, this movie was just… fine. This movie is the definition of a straight to DVD movie. You can skip this movie unless you need to see some animated superhero fight scenes.

Score: 6/10
