I can sympathize with that statement a little

While I always felt Batman The Animated Series was far better, I enjoyed some episodes of Superman (others not so much). I thought they drew Clark/Superman too bulky. I enjoyed the 3 part origin and I loved the Metallo episodes. Did not like their take on Lex's look and felt they could have featured the Fortress of Solitude more often.

Overall I thought it was good

Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
