Hi Amybal.

Titles need to be identified - you can use inverted commas or italics (sometimes bold letters are used).
"Namely" is not really necessary, though it's not wrong.

A great collection of Superman movies - "Superman Doomsday", "All-Star Superman" and "Superman vs the Elite" - in one thrilling set with memorable characters to be enjoyed with your kids and family.

"Superman" is the 'object of the preposition' "of" - there should not be a comma between them.
"Follow the adventures of Superman."

"Follow the adventures of Superman, as he meets . . ."

Drag0nspeaker thank you.

And noted on the Titles need to be identified - you can use inverted commas or italics (sometimes bold letters are used).

"Superman Doomsday" is typical written as "Superman: Doomsday" if you are refering to the 2007 animated film.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Ah!
Not one of my areas of interest, really - though I did enjoy the Superman film with Richard Pryor (mainly for the rather camp/burlesque humour).

I enjoy animated films Studio Ghibli, Pixar, Dreamworks and the D.C, Animated Universe and others.

Another comment I would make is not of a grammatical nature, but one of content Superman : Doomsday was given a PG-13 rating in America and is 12 rated in the UK due to onscreen blood and violence, it's not really a family film for adults and kids alike.
I think All-Star Superman has a similar rating in the UK as well.

Obviously different countries have different standards but it's worth bearing in mind.
