Justice League Gods and Monsters Superman

The second installment of the Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles is available now on Machinima. This time around we get to see Superman in action as he attempts to save the city from annihilation. Sound familiar? Well it should because that’s what Superman does… It’s kind of his thing. However, in this alternate universe Superman is the son of General Zod and America’s meanest woman, Amanda Waller, is the President. Yikes!

It’s no secret I didn’t get much out of the series premiere, which featured Batman as an actual vampire battling Harley Quinn. While I enjoyed the style reminiscent of Bruce Timm’s Batman the Animated Series, I thought the episode fell flat and was ultimately a missed opportunity. There was certainly a creepy serial killer vibe along the lines of The Silence of the Lambs or Seven, which are films I greatly enjoy, but they also benefit from a slow burn. Perhaps the 5-minute runtime had something to do with Batman’s episode missing the mark.

The pacing in episode two is far better and manages to give us a beginning, middle, and end. Right from the get-go we have a crisis on our hands. The city is about to blow. Who you gonna call? Superman! Now it’s a race against time and if the man of steel can’t get the job done then President Waller will nuke the area. Sure this sounds cliche and why shouldn’t it? How many times have we seen this story? The difference? Superman is the son of Zod and has his own way of dealing with Brainiac.

Watch Episode Two: “Bomb,” below and get ready for the third and final episode launching on Friday, June 12. Additionally, this beast will be available to purchase by way of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on July 28. It’s also worth noting Machinima has already announced a second season scheduled to release sometime in 2016.
