The movie Superman vs. The Elite is a 2012 animated superhero film based on the DC Comics storyline "What's So Funny About Truth, Justice & the American Way?" by Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke. The film is directed by Michael Chang and written by Joe Kelly, and features the voice talents of George Newbern as Superman, Pauley Perrette as Lois Lane, Robin Atkin Downes as Manchester Black, and Dee Bradley Baker as the Hat.

The movie opens with a scene of Superman preventing a rocket from crashing into the Earth. As he flies away from the scene, he is confronted by Manchester Black, the leader of a group of superheroes known as The Elite. The Elite consists of Coldcast, Menagerie, and The Hat, and they are called in by the government to deal with threats that Superman may not be able to handle.

Despite their initial admiration for Superman, The Elite quickly become disenchanted with him when they witness his adherence to his moral code. Manchester Black believes that the only way to truly achieve world peace is to take down the enemies of humanity by any means necessary, even if it means killing them.

Superman, on the other hand, believes in the value of life and non-violent solutions. He argues that resorting to violence only perpetuates the cycle of hate and violence, and ultimately leads to more suffering.

As The Elite continues to gain popularity for their brutal tactics, Superman finds himself increasingly isolated and vilified. In a climactic battle, Superman faces off against The Elite, determined to prove that his way is the right way.

The animation style of Superman vs. The Elite is reminiscent of classic comic books, with bold lines and bright colors. The action scenes are well-choreographed and exciting, and the voice acting is top-notch, particularly George Newbern as Superman.

The themes of the movie are timely and relevant, exploring the idea of how far is too far when it comes to justice and the pursuit of peace. The film asks important questions about the nature of heroism, and whether or not it is enough to simply defeat evil, or if we must also uphold a higher moral standard in order to truly succeed.

Overall, Superman vs. The Elite is an excellent addition to the DC animated universe. It is a thought-provoking and entertaining film that stays true to the character of Superman while also exploring new territory.

Superman vs. The Elite is a 2012 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 16 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1.
