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

While I still think Fleischer's series was technically better... it was limited. It had no mythos to fall back on the way STAS did.

Now, if I had done STAS and had complete control, I would have gone much more traditional with Brainiac, made Lex a businessman/mad scientist hybrid... not used Lobo at all, introduced Mongol, not relied so heavily on The 4th World, used more gangsters/Intergang and made it look more like BTAS.

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.
