Was not that good
22 May 2014 | by dtaylor68-8-549203See all my reviews

All I can say is...not much.

My kids enjoyed and was entertained by it so I guess that is the only thing that matters.

Both the animation and story was alright, but both could have been better. Like some of the other reviewers mentioned it did feel a bit like a 1 hour Super Friends television special with the all too familiar Legend of Dome headquarters and Hall Of Justice.

There was some heavy hitters in the voice acting department at least.

Didn't like the inconsistency of when Superman disappeared, so should have Bizarro since he was an imperfect clone of Superman. No Superman, No Clone!
