Image for Superman: Doomsday

In 1992, the comic book industry sent shockwaves throughout the world. How could they do it? He's an icon! Don't kill the Man of Steel! These sentiments were echoed from Boston to Bosnia. DC Comics and the writers of the Superman family of comic books had killed off the symbol of truth, justice and the American way. And finally, 15 years after the original story was told, an animated feature film adaptation has been released to bring this incredible story of heroism to life. Superman: Doomsday, while straying from the original storyline in an effort to focus on the two primary characters, is a powerful reinactment of the seven-part miniseries that made a comic reader of myself, personally. This adaptation features all-new artwork and vocal talents lent from the likes of Adam Baldwin (Clark Kent/Superman) and Anne Heche (Lois Lane), and separates itself from the previous animated Superman television shows. Over an hour of special features is also included on this one disc dvd set, and bonuses include an in-depth documentary on how the writers of the Superman books came up with their plan to revitalize the comic book industry by turning their champion into somewhat of a martyr. Also included is an interactive video game which allows the viewer to take the role of Superman, while the standard commentary track is also featured to make this DVD a very solid offering and a must have for any fan of the Last Son of Krypton.
