Superman Vs. the Unauthorized Authority



?TV Guide revealed DC’s next animated straight-to-DVD movie, and it’s Superman Vs. the Elite, based on Action Comics #775, a.k.a. “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?” According to Wikipedia, the 2001 issue is a response to the popularity of the popular, quite-willing-to-kill antiheroes like the Authority, and why they’re bad. The first look at the character designs is to the right; I assume that the finished product will not have random pictures of NCIS‘ Pauley Perrette in it, and TV Guide inserted the pic because Perrette is voicing Lois Lane for some reason. Although inserting random pictures of Pauley Perrette into reality does sound like something Mr. Mxylptlk might do. (Via CBR)
