Superman vs The Elite is a movie in the DC Original Animated Movies line based on the Superman story, "What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, & the American Way?", centered on the Man of Steel dealing with a new group of anti-heroes called "The Elite", who kill criminals, earning them public acclaim. Superman opposes this, and attempts to take them down before things get worse.
The voice cast features George Newbern reprising his Justice League role as Superman, David Kaufman reprising his DCAU role as Jimmy Olsen, Robin Atkin Downes (No More Heroes) as Manchester Black, and Pauley Perrette (NCIS) as Lois Lane.
Tropes demonstrated in this film include:
- Animesque: Unlike previous films which used the aesthetic that would be adapted by Young Justice, this film uses art much more similar to that of Teen Titans.
- Expy: The Elite are based upon The Authority.
