Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam(DC Showcase: Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam) ((2010))

This collection of DC Showcase animated shorts boasts the teaming-up of two of DC's most powerful heroes -- Superman (voiced by George Newbern) and Captain Marvel (Jerry O'Connell) -- as they battle villain Black Adam (Arnold Vosloo) and cope with the ethics of utilizing superpowers. Billy Batson, who assumes the mantle of Captain Marvel, turns to Superman for guidance on the moral implications of seeking justice ... or is it revenge?
Loved the whole showcase. The Spectre was probably my favorite overall. Love the dark, gritty way it was shot. I would love to see a full length feature on him. Definitely worth a viewing.

This dvd is a collection of 4 short movies involving Superman and Captain Marvel, the Specter, Green Arrow, and Jonah Hex. I gave this dvd a 4 because of the Specter and Jonah Hex shorts. I though those were great and very well done. Superman/Captain Marvel and Green Arrow were both good too, but the two I mentioned really stood out for me.

  1. The trouble with the spectre is really you have to handle him sort of like the crypt keeper because he's so all powerful that there's no dramatic tension. He's not the protagonist, he's what happens when you tempt fate.
