Hmm, alright, maybe I'll give it a shot eventually.

Crisis was good in its first viewing, but rewatching it just reveals how dry the whole thing was. Apocalypse was decent, and probably my favorite after UTRH and Wonder Woman. Flashpoint had an entertaining story, but it's not anything worthy of a revisit, in my opinion. The art style was also atrocious. The worst offender is probably JL War. Continuous mind-numbing action and bad character work - it was a chore to finish that one.

JL Doom was....functional. It wasn't terrible, but nothing to write home about either.

@wolverine08: I'm not sure of the exact storyline, but in WW2 he was captured by Hydra scientists and injected with a serum that the scientists noted would stop his aging.

Hey, @veshark, you want to help us out here? :)

Yeah, that was from the Hail Hydra mini. Supposedly, Hydra injected Steve with the Lazarus Formula during WWII and made him immortal. I don't know if anyone's ever referenced that story again though......Hail Hydra was a pretty mediocre miniseries that pretty much went under everyone's radar.

@veshark: What about New Frontier or TDKR?

I didn't like New Frontier at all. That movie just felt too...I don't know, incomplete. TDKR wasn't bad - I'd rank it as 'decent'. But frankly after having read the book so many times, a 2-hour adaptation came across as being somewhat redundant.

@frozen I'd put it as being decent, though not spectacular.

I enjoyed Invincible Iron Man. Sure it was uneven as hell at times, but the run remains one of the most engaging modern 'superheroic' runs on the character. The opening Five Nightmares arc probably remains my favorite IM story, just before the Knaufs' Haunted arc.

Black. Panther.

I don't know if it's been confirmed, I just remember Feige namedropping him.

I remain skeptical. The only good films in the Animated Original Movies line are Wonder Woman & Under the Red Hood. Everything else ranges from decent (Apocalypse), to mediocre (Crisis), to downright terrible (JL War).

Superman vs The Elite opts to disagree with your analysis my friend :P That comes under the good films category in my books. A damn great adaptation of my second favourite Superman story. Not the best animation I concede but the story and action made up for it.

As for this trailer, it looks alright. A decent voice cast, a serviceable plot and good visuals should make for an interesting viewing when we see more of this film.

I haven't actually seen that one; it's one of the only two Animated Originals I haven't caught yet (The other being Unbound because I have yet to read the Brainiac story arc and I don't want spoilers). I just couldn't get over the movie's art style. Supes looked really funny there. Maybe I'll give it a shot one of these days.
