Default Re: Max Fleischer Superman or Bruce Timm Superman, which do you prefer?

I hated several things about the Timm/Dini version.

1) Brainiac from Krypton.
2) the character designs. I think Timm's original designs were better. The final products for Lois, Perry and Jimmy were okay, but Superman was too blocky/bulky IMO.
3) the tone was too light in a lot of episodes.

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.
