Manchester Black and The Elite in Superman vs. The Elite (2012) Movie Image

DC Comics Premiere and Warner Home Video have released three new short clips featuring members of The Elite in action, plus new images from the upcoming original animated movie. Check them out below, check them outers. It’s funny, the Elite looked way more powerful in the comics. Almost Godlike in their abilities. Here, though, they sort of look somewhat average, even generic.

In SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE, Superman’s effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as “The Elite,” appear on the scene. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy — putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.

Featuring the voices of George Newbern as Superman, Pauley Perrette as Lois Lane, and directed by Michael Chang.

Superman faces off against the Elite June 12, 2012 on DVD and Blu-ray.

    I can’t wait for this. I mean DC has been pretty darned consistant with these. Say what you will about the change in art style, the story will be great! Action Comics #375 was an awesome look at how Superman is still relevant. The art style reminds me of “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest HEroes” which I didn’t like until I saw it in motion. The artist for the comic at the time Doug Mahnke has a very stylized art style that wouldn’t translate well to an animated style. After “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” tried to mimic the art of Ed MCGuiness and had them look like animated action figures, i say go close to the style but get something that evokes the energy of the style and this does it. Mahnke also drew the comic for “Under the Red Hood” and they went with a style that was a bit more realisitc which works perfectly for that story. This is a story where Superman is seen as a larger than life figure so the super square jawed look is perfect. Also like “Under the Red Hood,” this story was adpated by the original writer, in this case Joe Kelly.
