90's Superman Animated Series

Recommended Posts

What did everyone think of the 1990's animated Superman series? Overall, I liked it, though not as much as Batman. Dana Delany did a marvelous job as Lois Lane.

My favorite episode of the entire series was the episode where a bomb was planted in Clark Kent's car that would cause him to careen over a mountain ledge. Obviously, the bomb had no effect on him since he's Superman, but if he went back to Metropolis, people would find out that the only way he survived that was because he was Supes. But anyway, at the end of the episode, the real culprit is convicted and sentenced to death in the gas chamber. As he sits waiting for his immenent demise, he wonders quietly to himself how Kent could have possibly survived that crash. Then, he figures it out (with bloodshot eyes and all):

"He's Superman!"

At the very moment of his epiphany, the gas chamber lever is pulled and the episode ends. It was so awesome.

I'm extremely pleased that the three-part "World's Finest" will be on here as well. I feared that they would leave it off because they already released it on DVD.
