The year is 2019, and superheroes are a reality. However, after the death of Superman, the world is left in shock and without its symbol of hope. This is where "Reign of the Supermen" begins. The movie takes place six months after Superman's death and is a continuation of the story that started in the 2018 film "The Death of Superman."

As the world mourns, four new characters emerge, each claiming to be the true successor to the Man of Steel’s legacy. The characters are Superboy, who is a clone of Superman, Steel, a man armored in a high-tech suit (with an S on the chest), Cyborg Superman, a robotic version of the hero, and finally, the Eradicator, who is a being from Krypton.

The plot revolves around the rise of these new Supermen and the reactions of the other superheroes who are left to deal with them as the world struggles to choose who is the true Superman. The Justice League is skeptical of the new Supermen, but they cannot deny that the world needs a new hero.

To make matters more complicated, a new threat arises in the form of The Cyborg, who is revealed to be one of Superman's deadliest enemies, Hank Henshaw. Henshaw blames Superman for the death of his wife, and he's determined to enact his revenge on the new Supermen.

The story follows the last son of Krypton's friends and allies as they navigate these new arrivals and the schemes of the villainous cyborg. Lois Lane, for instance, is heartbroken by Superman's death, but she begins to suspect that one of these new Supermen might be her beloved Clark Kent returned from the dead.

Meanwhile, Batman is on edge as he investigates the new heroes with his usual suspicion and doubts their capabilities compared to Clark’s. Green Lantern is more inclined to believe in the new breed of superheroes emerging on behalf of their new seeming dedication to the protection of the Earth.

With these new Supermen around, it seems that the world is once again safe from the forces of evil. But then, one of these heroes turns out to be an imposter. The Justice League will have to come together to stop the imposter and unravel the mystery surrounding the true identity of the new Superman.

The visuals in the movie are fantastic, and the animation quality is top-notch. Each new incarnation of the Man of Steel is beautifully and distinctively depicted. Fans of the DC Universe will appreciate the attention to detail in the character designs, which are all faithful to the comic book versions.

The voice acting is also impressive, with well-known actors and actresses lending their skills to the characters. Jerry O'Connell, who also voiced Superman in the previous movie, continues to bring the character to life with warmth and conviction. Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane, Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor and Cress Williams as Steel all conveyed their characters with vitality and authenticity.

One of the strengths of "Reign of the Supermen" is the emotional depth of the story. The world is still hurting after the death of Superman, and the new heroes’ arrival breeds both hope and suspicion in the hearts of the heroes and the public alike. The film explores themes of loss, grief, healing, and redemption.

Overall, "Reign of the Supermen"is a fantastic animated movie that delivers on every front - action, drama, suspense, and thrills. It is a tribute to the greatest hero of all time, a story about his legacy and the heroes who step up in his absence. Featuring a stellar cast, beautiful animation, and an engaging storyline, "Reign of the Supermen" is a must-watch for any DC Universe fan or anyone who likes superhero movies in general.
