Superman: Man Of Tomorrow is an origin story because it starts at the beginning. Don’t we all love origin stories? They’re usually the easiest story to tell because who the hell knows how a fictitious story is going to end. That being said Superman: Man Of Tomorrow ignores the typical Superman origin story and goes straight into the action.
Instead of General Zod or Lex Luthor doing something zany, we’ve got Lobo, an alien Parasite, and Superman figuring out what to wear from his costume. It’s actually nice to see new things happening in an origin story. Many things feel modern such as Clark Kent and Lois Lane being interns at The Daily Planet because as we all know companies don’t just hire unexperienced employees. I wonder if The Daily Planet is paying its interns. If not how is Clark affording to pay his rent?
Thankfully the story doesn’t focus on my questions. Speaking of the artwork and visuals it’s a very pretty animated film. In many ways it seems like it was pulled straight out of the comics.
Fun facts this movie comes in 4K ultra HD, Bluray, and Digital Code. Surprisingly there’s lots of bonus content included such as docs about Lobo and Martian Manhunter, sneak peaks for new animated DC Universe movies, and two episodes of the 90’s Superman cartoon featuring Lobo.
This package is like the ultimate for fans of Lobo.
