    Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

    ★★★½

    Definitely better than its predecessor!

    As a narrative line, Public Enemies is a bit stronger. But Apocalypse delivers in just about all other areas. The characters are way more fleshed out. The action is way more impactful and creative. I think it could've really been elevated with more of a central focus on Supergirl's perspective, but its good to see her story here. Its cool to see the New Gods! Its cool to see an army of Doomdays face off the trinity (mainly Batman with a battleaxe)! Its very cool to see the Captain Raymond Ho- I mean Darkseid fight at the farm on the end!

    All of the Easter eggs and callbacks are...a lot. When its…
