Re: Max Fleischer Superman or Bruce Timm Superman, which do you prefer?
Incredible yes, but TIMELESS?
I am quite struck that you say this.
Not really. Very much set in a 1940's world (THE CITY OF METROPOLIS SHOULD FOREVER AND ALWAYS STAY THIS WAY) and the last 8 episodes are very much centered around WW2.
The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
