JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS

I watched a film that depicted a very interesting version of the DC Comics Universe, complete with its own versions of the DC Trinity (Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman). Unlike most versions of the Justice League, who were the ideal superheroes, this Justice League is a trio of morally ambiguous anti-heroes who are willing to kill to get the job done. In addition to the DC Trinity, we also got to see alternate versions of other classic DC characters such as Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Amanda Waller, Steve Trevor, and countless others. I particularly like this version of Superman because he is so much different than the one we all know and love. While the traditional Superman is the son of Jor-El and raised by the Kents, this Superman is the son of General Zod and was raised by migrant workers. The rage and trauma of being persecuted as a migrant combined with being the son of a supervillain like General Zod is a dangerous mixture, which makes this Superman aggressive and morally flexible. I would recommend this film to anyone who is seeking a new way of looking into the DC Comics Universe.
