Funny / Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

Go To

  • Superman taking Kara...shopping. Think about that for a second.
    • The bit during that segment when two guys stopped in their tracks to ogle Kara, and Clark scares them away with a Death Glare
    • Kara trying on a rather Stripperiffic dress, asking Clark what he thinks, him saying "Uh... NO WAY." and her replying "Perfect, I'll take it!"
  • Superman and Supergirl referring to Batman as "grumpy-ass".
  • The Brick Joke about Superman owing Batman for what Kara did to his computer.
    Batman: Your "cousin" just torched $50,000 worth of custom hardware.
    Superman: Send me the bill.
    Batman: On a reporter's salary. Right.
  • When the Big Three go over to Barda's house to borrow her Mother Box, they insist she not come with them. Cue this glorious exchange:
    Big Barda: I know Darkseid's fortress like the back of my hand. You need me, so get over it. (Opens a secret compartment to reveal the Mother Box, weapons, and Scott Free's costume.)
    (Beat)
    Batman: ... Well, I'm over it. How about you two?

    • Even before that, just the image of Barda opening her door to see Superman and Wonder Woman on her porch. The reactions of the people in Barda's town helps too.
      • Also, while Superman and Wonder Woman make a big dramatic entrance and knock on the door in the first place, Batman's already inside when they enter.
  • "I'd tell you to go to hell, Gilotina, but given the situation, that'd be redundant."
  • The part where Darkseid grabs Superman's cape causing Superman to punch him halfway across the Kent's farm becomes especially funny if you're familiar with the Jim Croce song, You Don't Mess Around With Jim.
    You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind...
    • Could also bring to one's mind Edna Mode's "No capes".
  • The moment after Superman and Supergirl defeated Darkseid, but nearly demolished the Kents' home. Jonathan and Martha Kent's expressions when the came home and saw their house destroyed while Superman tried to introduce Kara to them was priceless.
    • Soon after that, Superman promises he can build a new house for his parents. His cousin only adds to the humor of the situation.
    Kara: I can help, I can... pound...I'm a good pounder.
    • When Kara greets the Kents with a hug, she lifts Jonathan off the ground.
