Superman's Gods and Monsters Chronicles Episode Stars President Amanda Waller, Sivana and Brainiac

gods-and-monsters-supermanMachinima and Warner Bros. Animation have released the second episode of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, this time featuring Superman.

While the dark, gritty world of Gods and Monsters has primarily focused so far on how violent and extreme even the world's greatest heroes can get, here we get a Superman story which, after a fashion, probably would work with the main-universe Man of Steel, as well.

Titled "Bomb," Superman rushes to save a city that Brainiac has endangered -- but he needs to do it before a nuclear bomb deployed by U.S. President Amanda Waller can annihiliate any survivors in the area.

You can check the video out below.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles turns the DC Universe upside-down. In this dark, alternate world, telling the good guys from the bad guys is never easy: Superman is not the son of Jor-El, he’s the son of General Zod; Wonder Woman is not from peaceful Themyscira, but rather the warring nation of Ares; and Batman is more vampire-bat than man…and he’s not Bruce Wayne. It is unclear if our greatest heroes are here to protect us...or to rule us.

Machinima has already announced a second season, which will come out in 2016.
