‘Justice League: Doom'
Writer Dwayne McDuffie's final contribution to the “Justice League” myth
In the film, the immortal Vandal Savage wants to exterminate most of humanity, and lead the rest from the ashes. Knowing the Justice League stands in the way of his plans, he steals backup protocols developed by Batman in case the League ever went rogue.
Armed with the Justice League's weaknesses and a team of their greatest enemies, Vandal Savage attempts lethal variations on Batman's plans against the members of the League.
The League must overcome these deathtraps in time to thwart Vandal's
The film brings back several popular voices from the “Justice League” animated programs to voice the League characters, including Michael Rosenbaum (“Smallville”) as Flash and Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman. Tim Daly, who voiced Superman in “Superman: The Animated Series” and Kevin Conroy, who has voiced Batman in scores of projects including “Batman: The Animated Series” return as the World's Finest team. “Castle” and “Firefly” star Nathan Fillion, who portrayed Green Lantern in two previous DVD adventures, likewise voices Hal Jordan here. Carl Lumbly (“Alias”) voices the shape-shifting Martian Manhunter. Cyborg, a recent addition to the Justice League in the comics, is part of this adventure, voiced by Bumper Robinson.
The animated film does a great job of presenting the threat and raising the stakes, as well as developing the character of each Leaguer. This action-packed adventure stands as one of the best yet of the DC animated direct-to-DVD films.
