I think the OP said that he wasn't including JLU, just JL.

Agreed, but STAS was NOT boring.

I can tell you as a Superman fan since I was 2 years old that S:TAS, for me, was a boring and lifeless attempt at doing Superman for a modern audience, especially, I think, a modern young audience. The creative team simply did not do a good job of showcasing the character or his appeal.

JUSTICE LEAGUE had similar problems, but by the time the JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED episodes had arrived (and much of the same creators of B:TAS/S:TAS were far less hands on in Warner Animation at the time) the writing and presentation of Superman had become far better to many fan's eyes.

For myself there is no question that S:TAS has far fewer well animated or well written episodes than the totality of the JL/JLU run. I think writers like Dwayne Macduffie had a much better handle on Superman as a character than Timm, Dini and that crew, which is the main reason why Superman fans don't complain as much when it comes to JLU as opposed to TAS.

The season long story arcs were the first time I saw it in an animated cartoon with such a level of depth and complexity. It drew on story elements that were years in the making. I thought the Cadmus storyline was simply incredible. Best animated show ever imho.

Except we're comparing JUSTICE LEAGUE, NOT UNLIMITED. And I think they did a great job with the STAS episodes such as the Darkseid ones('Apokolips..Now' and 'Legacy' were hands down some of the best episodes in the entire DCAU) and his teamups with Batman. IMO in Justice League S2 and onward he didn't seem so much like the boy scout he's supposed to be, he became more harsh. Just watch the JLU episode "Clash".

I'm not a Superman fan but JLU made me at least 'get' the character a little more.
The 'I live in a world made of cardboard' is superb. I didn't get that with the STAS, I'm sorry but I just didn't.

Well we did see that he cares for people and he'd sacrifice his own life to save people.

Nope. It had some of the best episodes of the entire DCAU; "World's Finest", "Apokolips..Now" and "Legacy" to name a few.

Just because it's had a few good ones doesn't mean that overall the show wasn't a bore. As a matter of fact, World's Finest is really the only episode that I can watch with complete interest all the way through. Us arguing this isn't going to change my opinion, and you won't be changing yours. So we might as well drop it.

That could be why JL has way more votes so far than STAS

Wait, why is JLU being excluded anyway? That's still apart of Justice League, no?

BTAS' name was changed to the Adventures of Batman and Robin,then later the New Batman Adventures (with a completely new art style) yet its all considered "Batman: The Animated Series" as it should be. Justice League and Justice League Unlimited should be considered the same thing by the same logic

Hard to answer the question. I liked Superman the Animated Series, but Justice League had more interesting stories and I was happy that Superman's power level was increased.

My favorite of the Justice League series is the Superman themed "For the Man Who Has Everything".

Go to Wikipedia and look up Justice League and then Unlimited, they're separate shows.

I gotta go with Superman: TAS on this one. I liked JL/JLU as well and I found Batman TAS dull and dry as hell. But the Superman one was more focused than JL/JLU. It was the first time I ever saw Superman really delved into and his rogues gallery given a place to shine. IMO, it's DC's best show to date. I just loved it.
