The iconic superheroes of DC Comics unite once again in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths with the group consisting of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and J’onn J’onnz the Martian man hunter. In this feature, there’s another world where all of the superheroes and super villains are all opposites from the real ones.
The only surviving member of the Justice League in that other world is the leader, Lex Luthor. He arrives on Earth to seek the help of this Justice League to save that other world. It doesn’t take much convincing to trust Lex, thanks to Superman’s x-ray vision that he used to check on the real Lex Luthor in prison.
Later at the Justice League’s home base, Lex explains the situation to the other heroes. His world is in danger from the Crime Syndicate. They consist of Ultraman (evil Superman), Owlman (evil Batman), Superwoman (evil Wonder Woman), Johnny Quick (evil Flash), and Power Ring (evil Green Lantern). The Crime Syndicate rules the other world through fear. Anyone who stands up to them pays the ultimate price, if you know what I mean.
The Justice League agrees to help Lex, but Batman chooses to stay behind. Once they all arrive in the other world, the Justice League already has to go into battle, which is a real exciting one against Owlman, Superwoman, and a group of other colorful counterparts I don’t recognize.
Superwoman calls for backup, so the battle continues in the sky. I can’t help but feel sorry for Flash because he’s the only one who can’t fly. I still can’t figure out how Wonder Woman can fly without the invisible jet.
Afterwards, the Crime Syndicate creates a bomb powerful enough to blow up the world. However, Owlman discovers that there are many other worlds out there in the multiverse. In order to truly succeed, the Crime Syndicate must destroy the source world called Earth Prime. It takes a while to find, but once Earth Prime is destroyed all of the other Earth worlds will go with it.
The president in the other world is Slade Wilson. He believes that in order to keep the people safe, he should let the Crime Syndicate do whatever they please without consequences.
The Justice League disagrees with that notion and so does Rose, the president’s daughter. She’s not afraid to speak out against those super villains.
Meanwhile, Owlman discovers that the quantum trigger, which activates the bomb, is back at the Justice League home base because Lex hid it there. So Superwoman and some henchmen go to look for it. Batman struggles to fight them all by himself. Luckily, he called for backup, which includes Red Tornado, Black Lightning, Firestorm, Black Canary, and Aquaman. It seems like it’s been ages since Aquaman fought alongside the Super Friends.
This was a good film about the Justice League. One thing that’s different about this story about another world with evil counterparts is that when one dies, the other doesn’t die too, which is very good.
