We got to see a special screening at WonderCon for DC’s new animated movie Superman vs The Elite. The film is based on the story “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way”, in the 2001 issue of DC’s “Action Comics” #775, written by Joe Kelly, illustrated by Doug Mahnke and Lee Bermejo.
The film starts with a mysterious man in a Union Jack shirt watching a network of video screens that display trouble around the world. In one of the screens Superman stops a explosion but other horrors occur at the same time where the Man of Steel can’t be. The man watching the screens is Manchester Black, leader of The Elite. The Elite is a team of super-powered anti-heroes, who gained worldwide popularity for killing their enemies.
