Superman vs. the Elite and Lego: DC Superheroes Trailers

Elite one first,

Get More: MTV Shows


I am wondering what changes they must have made to the story, considering how Dr Light and the Atomic Skull weren't in the original version. The Elite themselves actually look pretty accurate to the comics though.

And the Lego trailer,

It has Clancy Brown and Mark Hammill in it, so it does. :)

And for the legalities, Conner and Tim talking about Cass,

Superman Vs. The Elite...eh. I was never a fan of the story it was based on and found it really overrated and doesn't really address well the kind of trend it was trying to talk about.

Lego Batman 2, on the other hand, YES. YES. I NEEDS IT NOW.

What book is this from? I take it this takes place before Cass meets Conner in her own book (on a cruise ship) and then when she goes to Smallville for a "date"

The link for Superman vs. The Elite does not work. Not for me, anyway.

Lego Batman 2 looks great fun!! I hope we'll see more heroes than those there, the toy range does include Wonder Woman after all.

I am, in fact, holding in my hands the "Lex Luthor Power Armor" set that includes Wonder Woman, which I bought for that very reason. I need to set aside some time Saturday to assemble it.

Seems like a very odd thing to release now, since the original Elite story was, from what I've heard ostensibly a condemnation of the hyper-violent, "edgy" style of 90's comics, while the majority of the nu52 very much feels like a retreat to exactly that mindset.
It would appear that irony is completely lost on some people.

THE CHIN OF STEEL!!!!

My god. You could crack open walnuts by nodding with that chin. Its like a geometrically perfect rectangle. D:

So, i just realised, with wildstorm folded into the normal DCU, we could actually do this story, with Superman versus the Authority. Scary.

Superman Vs. The Elite is looking nice.
I actually like his big cartoony chin. The world needs more simple cartoony looking character.
I dont wanna turn this into a flame war, so don't read too much into it, but these days things are always looking so "manga". One big cartoony Superman is honestly fine by me.

Also, I miss this Conner! His dynamic with Tim was so much fun than the way things turned out like in the years after that/at the moment.

Forget Supermans chin, what the hell is up with Manchaster Blacks mouth?!? I don't recall him using lipstick in the comic.

I don't really mind cartoony style, but I do mind a lot, that they choosed it for THIS story. And why Black doesn't have a cigar? They seriously won't let character smoke, but they have no problem letting him murder people?
