Re: The Superman: TAS discussion thread.
It's always funny from a hindsight perspective, that there are alot of fans displeased with the diluted strength of the Timmverse Superman when I recall not long before STAS had started on network tv way back that people thought the character had become too boring because he was too invincible and a little outdated.
The Spears series of the 80s was awesome and I hold it in high regard but I think that DC/Timm had to shake the mythos up a little with this venture...IMO, it worked.
"Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but it's certainly no less valid and true to the character's roots as the tortured avenger...crying out for Mommy & Daddy..."
