I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout last night. With the release of Superman: The Animated Series In high definition on HBO Max back in March, it seemed like an opportunity to look back at the underrated entry in the DC Animated Universe.
Superman: The Animated Series tends to be overshadowed in discussions about the DCAU by the two shows on either side, the earlier ones Batman: The Animated Series and of the two later Justice League Series. However, Superman: The Animated Series is an interesting bridge between the two that avoids them “Villain of the week” the structure of Batman: The Animated Series Instead, we should focus on long-form storytelling, which developed the character and built the world in a way that pays off in the later spin-offs. It remains one of the best settings for the Man of Steel.
