Necessary Evil

Necessary Evil is better than I expected.  This is the made for DVD special about the villains of DC Comics.  Christopher Lee narrates the special, which is a nice touch.

Commentators include aritsts or writers like Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, Neal Adams, Len Wein, James Robinson, and Scott Snyder.   Other commentators include voice actors like Clancy Brown (who played Lex Luthor), and Phil Morris (who played Vandal Savage).  There was one actor who provided commentary who seemed a bit like an odd choice.  Director Zack Snyder, who directed Man of Steel, is also a commentator.

There was one commentator who was a psychologist.  That was interesting.

Of course this special ties into the Forever Evil mini-series.  That is not a bad thing.  The Crime Syndicate is discussed.

Villains spotlighted included Lex Luthor, the Joker, Catwoman, Ra’s Al Ghoul, Black Adam, Sinestro, and Captain Cold.  The Flash’s Rogues as a group are also discussed.

There are clips from movies, video games, and cartoons.

Maybe this isn’t for casual fans.
