The DC animated universe introduces us to some engrossing new characters and plot elements with “Justice League vs. Teen Titans”, the recent, exciting adventure in their entertaining DTH-video series.

Fusing traditional Justice League superheroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Cyborg against a bunch of upstart adolescent crime-fighters, and pitting them against each other could easily have turned out to be a convoluted muddle, a la “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, but some fairly solid writing by Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett, and more than a few innovative and pulsating action sequences envisaged by Director Sam Liu (Batman: Year One, Justice League: Gods and Monsters) make this a breezy ride that’s guaranteed to whet your appetite for some plain, simple, no-holds-barred fun. If you still desire to see DC superheroes battling each other, this is a far more rewarding investment than “Dawn of Justice”.

As is the norm with these movies, “Justice League vs. Teen Titans” is short and snappy, clocking in at about 75 minutes, which means its themes are mostly presented on the surface, with little time for any deeper exploration. Nevertheless, this latest offering from DC’s popular and highly entertaining animated universe – the only avenue where they still score over Marvel – has an enjoyable comic-book appeal, and it sets up the Teen Titans nicely for their own series of screen escapades.
