I’m a big fan of the superhero genre. I had nearly the entire Super Powers Collection of action figures when I was a kid. I watched all the different incarnations of Super Friends in the 80s, then the animated series of Batman and Spider-Man in the 90s. I read comics when I could find them as a kid, and for a few years again as an adult (had to quit that; too low of a quality-to-dollar ratio.) And if I have an opportunity to watch a superhero movie, even if I think it’s probably bad, I’ll usually take a chance on it. So when I had such a chance to watch Mosaic online, I took it.
Mosaic, more fully titled as Stan Lee Presents: Mosaic, is a straight-to-video animated film from POW Entertainment and Anchor Bay Entertainment. Scott Lobdell, who wrote the Uncanny X-Men comics for a period in the 90s, adapted a screenplay from Stan Lee’s story of a new superhero. It’s one of a handful of direct-to-video superhero films “presented” by Stan Lee around 2006-2007, and of the three I’m aware of (the others being The Condor and Lightspeed) it seems to have gotten the best reception on IMDb. It’s still not setting the world on fire there, it’s just falling on the right side of the good/bad line.
