I love the JLords. I think they are amazing, and the fact that they areactually acting for good is what makes them great, for me. I consider them as a kind of ultimate anti-JL. They are so great ; I was all excited when they reappeard at the end of the season 2 of JLU, created by Luthor. I was almost crying. I wasn't a big fan of the all suit nevertheless.

Oddly enough I think the episode is sometimes boring. I like the episode, I think it's excellent but I wasn't a big fan of the ExoSkell-5000. Nor the idea, nor the fight.

I watched two episodes today, "Father's Day" and "Speed Demons." Watching the former, I finally understood why people consider Superman to be boring in the show. Superman's fight with Kalibak and Desaad's machine were pretty bland, considering the powers Superman has been tied with for decades; no super speed, no heat vision, no ice breath, nothing. It was pretty much "punch, get punched, repeat."

That being said, I still enjoy the show, at least for now, but I do wish they had lightened up about his powers. There is a way to give him all those cool powers without turning him into SuperGod.

Awesome animated show and as good as Ruby Spear's version and Lois and Clark at the time and i was 15 when this first aired as i knew they should do a Superman toon from the same makers.

Tim Daley and Clancy Brown were both perfection and who knew Timm made Lois hot? lol.

One of the greatest animated shows of all-time, very underrated it was more consistent than Batman TAS and the two parter episode Legacy is in the top 2 or 3 DCAU episodes ever made.

Such an awesome show, the way they reinvented and even create villains really helped Superman's rogue gallery.

A great show imo. Just about as good as Batman. The de-powered Supes is overblown and exaggerated by people. At times a bit irksome, but it was a way the maintain a level of suspense within each episode. If Supes showed up and kicked ass right from the get go each ep. would be over in 5 minutes. He's still Superman in the show, just not the Superman that can do everything ever without breaking a sweat.

I just picked up season one from Walmart. I never caught the series during it's run. I felt I had outgrown cartoons at the time , now here I am years later about to jump into it.

I don't feel this show was anywhere near as good as BTAS. That said, it was still really good and I enjoy watching it.

I actually enjoyed it more than BTAS, even though I'm a bigger fan of Bats than Superman.

More consistent than BTAS for sure and been a Superman fan I'd even say better.

Agreed. It was different but still enjoyable. I look forward to seeing a new Superman series that push the boundaries even further.

I'm surprised they haven't pushed one out to cash in on Man of Steel.

Such a classic show, and one that as a kid in the '90's, was a definitive take on the Superman mythos. Much like Batman TAS.

The Darkseid episodes were the best. Just masterful storytelling.

Yes especially Apokolips Now! and Legacy (which I think is quite possibly the greatest episode(s) of the entire DCAU).

For me, the Brainiac episodes were pretty solid as well, especially "Stolen Memories" and "Ghost in the Machine".

Yeah those two were awesome, infact watching Stolen Memories straight after the Last Son of Krypton 3 parter makes it even better.

Ah yes, another Brainiac episode, and a nice follow up to "World's Finest" and the previous two Brainiac eps. He also has a great line to Superman-as-Batman:

"You're every bit the detective you're followers on the Internet believe."

I sort of missed out on watching STAS when it was out for some reason unlike BTAS (wasn't a big superman fan as a kid). Is the show still enjoyable to check out as an adult without having any of the attached nostalgia to it?

BTAS is still pretty enjoyable.

I'm in the middle of the series. It's really fun , but doesn't reach the depth of BTAS. I would still recommend this to fans of BTAS because it's still good quality and takes place in the same universe. I'm excited to move onto Justice League.


The last episode I watched was "Monkey Fun" . It's basically Superman vs King Kong , which is awesome.

Wait til you watch Apokolips Now! and Legacy, in my opinion no episode of Batman the Animated Series reached the level of those.

I'm actually surprised at some of the "adult themes" that were slipped in there.

I wonder if kids cartoons today even bother?
