1992 was a very eventful year in comics. It was the death of Superman. What will Metropolis do? Who will protect the city from the forces of evil?
4 new challengers enter the fray…
The weeks that followed, readers of the Superman comics were introduced to 4 new defenders of Truth, Justice and The American Way. These 4 new heroes were (from left to right): Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and Eradicator.
Fast forward to 2018, Warner Bros Animation release the Death of Superman movie and several months later, we receive the follow-up:
Reign of the Supermen Movie!
Jon and I have recently watched the movie and we go over how well the movie does to try to tell 4 origin stories and then try to introduce a major villain while giving a surprise reveal all within 90 minutes!!
Jon and I agree that overall, the movie is pretty good with its story and animation. I have some minor complaints about the origin of one of the Supermen but its not a deal breaker.
Here is a close-up of Cyborg Superman…
As you watch the movie, Cyborg Sups seems like he is the real deal but is he hiding a dark secret from Lois Lane and the viewers? If you listen to the podcast, you will find out.
Lastly, we do have some Spoilers regarding the plot of the movie. I don’t consider spoilers since the movie is based on a comic that came out over 25 years ago. You have been warned!
