LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League takes the LEGO version of DC's heroes and puts them in a new adventure, this time with LEGO versions of their Bizarro alternates.

The story starts off with Superman (Nolan North) having to save yet another group of civilians from the acts of Bizarro. No, Bizarro (also played by North) isn't actually trying to harm the people of Metropolis, but the duplicate's badly-executed do-gooding ends up causing a lot more harm than good. In the aftermath, Superman leads Bizarro to an isolated planet with strange physics. He convinces the dud of a duplicate to stay on the new world and help protect its "citizens" (really just hunks of crystal).

Fast-forward a year and the Justice League is fully established and fighting crime, when a report of Superman breaking into Lex Luthor's office buildings causes the entire League to rush to Metropolis only to find that the culprit is actually Bizarro. Before the group has any chance to work out what is happening, the backwards character hits Batman (Troy Baker), Green Lantern (Diedrich Bader), Wonder Woman (Kari Wahlgren) and Cyborg (Khary Payton) with the same duplicator ray that made him. The result is Batzarro, Greenzarro, Bizzara and Cyzarrow (all voiced by the same actors as their non-duplicated counterparts).

When the Justice League follows the newly-minted Bizarro League to Bizarro World, they learn that the planet is under attack by Darkseid (Tony Todd). The villain seems to be collecting all of the strange crystals that are found in abundance on this planet because of their odd effects on the physics around them. Now the Justice League, along with the strange new team, must work together in order to stop their common enemy.

Given that each Bizarro character is an opposite of the hero they were made from, characters like Greenzarro are incredible cowardly, while Batzarro's none-too-swift thinking can be a problem. The low-tech Cyzarro also has a few issues, especially when he tries to "break" things, and Wonder Woman is at first appalled, but later impressed by Bizzara's fighting technique. In the end though, the off-beat team just might have what it takes to save the day, you know, on Bizarro World.

This Blu-ray release comes with a few amusing special features. One is a TV special called "Batman Be-Leaguered" where Batman is finally convinced to join the Justice League. Unlike most special features, I would actually recommend watching this (and its bloopers reel) before starting the main movie. The short acts as a prequel to the rest of the film and it also explains Batman's distrust of the Man of Steel.

The last special feature on this release is a featurette about Bizarro and his history. While I knew about Bizarro and his amusing backwards-talk, I wasn't aware of a lot of the parts of this character's history that were discussed in this featurette. This featurette also talks a bit about the creation of the film and what the creators were hoping to get out of the film. It's definitely worth the time to watch.

LEGO films always have a good bit of silliness to them, and Justice League vs. Bizarro League is no exception, thankfully. The Bizarro League itself offers a lot of opportunities to have slapstick humor, but don't think that all of the ridiculousness is constrained to the unusual new team - many gags accompany the main heroes as well. As a result, this film is a good, solid piece of family fun for LEGO and DC fans alike that even comes with a Batzarro mini-fig for your collection.
