Justice League didn't have great characterization of Superman or the rest of the leaguers, but I think the characters were used more in service to the stories, which were cracking.

But like anything, I'm sure it gets better so I probably just need to stick it out.
Tim Daly was always better to me. I guess I'm the only one here who liked STAS more.

I haven't seen the entirety of JL or JLU so I don't think it'd be fair to vote. TAS is just my favorite at this point in viewing JL, which isn't very far.

I like both a lot but Justice league was richer and the character interaction was wonderful. That show is what made me refall in love with the DC characters as an adult. I went back and sought out the other TAS after that. I love them all but Batman Beyond.

If Unlimited doesn't count then I have to give it to STAS. The first season of Justice League was really weak in my opinion. It's amazing how much they improved later. I like STAS just as much as BTAS.

Season 2 of JL and season 1 of JLU were mind blowing. I remember actually clapping at the end of the penultimate episode of season 1 of JLU. Mind blowing. As good as BTAS was I thought JL/JLU was better, so much tension and drama.
Release the rest of the Blu rays already!!!

I think STAS is one of the most overrated versions of Superman, and dosen't get remembered as much as BTAS and JL because its not as remarkable as BTAS and JL.

JL/JLU however was an excellent cartoon.

As far as STAS Supes vs JL/JLU Supes, they're about even to me. People like to complain about JLTAS Supes as if he didn't curbstomp most of the people he fought from Season 2 onwards.

STAS and the word underrated don't mix.

STAS for me was 'meh'.

My top 3 Animated shows of all time.
1) JL/JLU
2) Spectacular Spider-Man
3) BTAS

There were some great STAS episodes with Lex, Brainiac, Darkseid and Metallo, but there were way more great JL episodes

I don't particularly love most of the characters in the Justice League. I'm a big fan of Superman and Batman, primarily. Flash, to an extent. So by that token, I prefered STAS. I certainly enjoy Justice League as well.

This.

It's not hard coming up with story lines or ideas that could be kid friendly. They could draw from any of the 75+ years worth of stories from most places. They could even bring in the writers for the current "Adventures of Superman" comic(which is pretty kid-friendly) for ideas. Heck, they could even pay homage to Smallville's "Freak of the Week" episodes by bringing in wacky Kryptonite mutants wrecking havoc in Metropolis. Then you have overarching plots of Lex Luthor, Brainiac and Darkseid per season, with the last one a possible vehicle for a Justice League team-up.

There you go WB/DC. I just mapped out the first 3 seasons for you, now stop milking the Batman cow for animated series ideas.

Yeah, I'm surprised we haven't had a new Superman series to coincide with Man of Steel.
