    well, that was an awkward first comment to the thread.
    I liked both, but I thought Justice League was a better, more ambitious show.

    ^ Yeah. Though Superman TAS deserves more props then it gets :)

    definitely deserves more attention, gets forgotten about since it was sandwiched between BTAS and JL

    Tell me about it! It's like the black sheep of the DCAU.

    Justice League. The characterizations are just ok, but I really enjoyed the storylines and dialogue.

    JL had a rocky first season but an awesome second season. STAS was pretty good throughout with a couple of bumps here and there and has some really awesome episodes in the third season.

    Hmm, tough to decide, but I'll go with STAS since Daly > Newbern.

    This is a useless thread.

    It does not belong here and is adding to a part of this board already filled useless threads.

    This is an original thread, compared to some thread have multiple iterations (the 3-5 Star Trek Into Darkness ones, the 3 about the Com. Gordon series, and so on.)

    Hate to be a prick but this has a relevance to the Superman vs Batman movie how?

    So now that Breaking Bad is over, people are going to allude to spoilers in their sigs/avatars/names now?

    Great.

    I find STAS to be OK-at-best to be honest, far away from being a favorite for me as a Superman fan.

    I liked JL more than BTAS so JL vs STAS is a total non starter.

    Yeah, but its still a topic that doesn't really need its own thread. Especially in this part of the board where, other than featuring Superman and Batman, it has no relation.

    It'd be one thing if it was a thread to discuss what influences the DCAU might have on this universe, and what similarities BVS might have to the World's Finest episode of Superman: TAS. But instead, it just asks if you liked one show over the other.

    Its not an entirely pointless thread, but it doesn't belong here.

    It belongs in the tv thread or JLA World or Superman world threads.

    I didn't really care for either shows characterization of Superman, but I did like how WW and MMH were used in Justice League, so I voted for that.

    For what the OP was alluding to here, I prefer the hero-to-hero interactions more than the heroes to their peripheral characters, which is another reason that I'm optimistic about Superman vs Batman.

    I've been trying to watch Justice League on Netflix but am having a tough time moving through it. Mostly, I'm not too big of a fan of Newbern and I really can't stand the super-cheek bones. He also seems stiff and lives up the that Big Blue Boyscout view that I can't stand. TAS has more personality at this point.

    But like anything, I'm sure it gets better so I probably just need to stick it out.

    Justice League, imo was probably the best supehero cartoon ever made next to B:TAS. Like others have said the first season is rocky, but as the show progressed and the characters developed it was a truly remarkable show. Season 4 in particular, the whole Cadmus/ Luthor storyline was incredibly well done and very intense and ambitious. As a whole though, this was an amazing achievement on DC/ Warner Bros' end. I've yet to see a cartoon that could dethrone this ( Avengers EMH came close though).

    I thought JL had a few interesting Superman moments, my favorite being the fistfight with Darkseid, where he delivers the "I sometimes feel like I live in a world made of cardboard ..." bit, I thought that was a nice little bit of writing and a good insight as to Superman's innermost thinking. That's what I liked about JL, those little bits of insight into the heroes' minds.

    Both were good, but both frustrated me. Superman was so powered down and reduced to a punching bag. I hated the fact that, in Justice League, that neither Superman or Flash could out maneuver a bad guy, but Batman could effortlessly escape. Made no sense to me at all.

    They had to power him down so that he didnt make the other members look obsolete. I actually like how they made him more vulnerable. One thing I noticed in rerospect however is that Superman seemed very...on edge throughout most of he series. Like he was much more militant and serious, he seemed more Captain America-ish than Superman. It doesn't necessarily bother me but just something I've noticed in retrospect.
