Reign of the Supermen Overview

In the wake of The Death of Supermen, the world is still mourning the loss of the Man of Steel following his fatal battle with the monster Doomsday. However, no sooner as his body been laid to rest than do four new bearers of the Superman shield come forward to take on the mantle. The Last Son of Krypton, Superboy, Steel, and the Cyborg Superman all attempt to fill the vacuum left by the world's greatest champion. Meanwhile, Superman's death has also signaled to the universe that Earth is vulnerable. Can these new Supermen and the rest of the heroes prove them wrong?

Reviews for Reign of the Supermen

Author: Sheldon Nylander

"The Death of Superman" was a great film and adaptation of the source material (yes, they changed a few things, but not so much as to drastically alter it beyond recognition). "Reign of the Supermen"...not so much. Part of the problem may be that while the Death of Superman comic storyline was relatively short and concise, the Reign of the Supermen comic storyline was epic in scale with far-reaching consequences for the DC Universe at large. That's pretty hard to cram into an hour and a half, and even with a pretty cool final battle scene, they're not successful at conveying any kind of major or lasting impact. The villains don't feel right either. One comes off as rather whiny, another is just completely ineffective. And characterization in general are rather shallow. We don't get to know these Supermen well enough to really care about what happens to them. While still better than "Superman/Doomsday", "Reign of the Supermen" is still a pretty disappointing follow up to one of the better DC animated movies.

The voice cast is solid, and _Reign of the Supermen_ works well as a sequel to last year's _The Death of Superman_, but it is not one of the various DC Animated universes' truly great entries. At least it wasn't another re-do of a story they've already done. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
