In addition to the 79-minute film itself, the Battle of the Super Sons includes a new featurette titled Rival Sons: Jonathan and Damian. “Legacies collide as Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne set aside their differences, forming an unlikely alliance to save the world,” its official description reads.

Created by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert, Damian Wayne – the son of Bruce Wayne / Batman and Talia al Ghul – was formally introduced to the DC Universe in 2006’s Batman # 655 (Bruce and Talia’s son was initially introduced as Ibn al Xu’ffasch in the non-canon 1987 graphic novel Batman: Son of the Demon). Damian soon became the fifth character to take up the mantle of Robin in mainstream DC continuity, succeeding Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake and Stephanie Brown.

Meanwhile, Jonathan “Jon” Kent was created by Dan Jurgens, first appearing in 2015’s Convergence: Superman # 2 as the son of Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman and Lois Lane. Jon became the third major DC character to go by the name Superboy, following Kal-El / Clark Kent himself, as well as Kon-El / Conner Kent. In 2021, Jon even assumed the mantle of Superman in his father’s absence. Jon and Damian first joined forces as the Super Sons in late 2016 amid DC’s Rebirth initiative.
