The Cartoon Hero vs. Justice League: War from Eli Stone on Vimeo.
This isn't DC. It's Frank Miller's Heroes with Ultimate Marvel Universes's Citizens.
That scene of Darkseid is from Superman: The Animated Series; the finale "Apokolips Now!" to be specific. As for a better villain for this first arc, I think Despero, Steppenwolf, heck even Desaad. Or like the original Silver Age origin with Starro The Conqueror.
