When developing this show, the crew was playing around with different ideas. According to producer Bruce Timm, at one point they said, "Well, what if we did Superman and the Justice League, where every episode would have Superman in it, plus two other members of the Justice League?" Timm sat down and did a bunch of different characters, even some that had never even been in the JLA, like the Question. They tried to put in as weird a mix as they could so it wasn't just Superman, Aquaman, Hawkman etc... Batman wasn't going to be part of it since he already had his own show. In the end, DC President and Editor-In-Chief Jenette Kahn put a stop to it. She thought it was not a good idea, since they were just reintroducing Superman to the audience, and she thought teaming him up with the JLA would be diminishing to him.

When you are watching this series you are feeling Superman is one of the greatest heroes in comics history. This series contains every details about Superman history. The history of his planet Kripton are the first three episodes of the season. You will learn about his weakness, his enemies and his friends through the episodes.
Later in series you will see Superman teaming with another greats superheroes like Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and more. The episodes of Superman and Batman are excellent because are mixing enemies from both series. I recommend to watch Word's Finest episodes.
Lex Luthor is the main enemy of Superman but you will see in action more enemies like Metallo, Darkseid, Braniac, Joker and more. I like this series because Superman appear like he can be beaten. He have all the magnificent powers but the enemies are smart and they can destroy Superman if they want it. This make suspense in the series.
This is a very short series compared with Batman animated show. But every episodes are great and you don't wanna miss any one of them.
I recommend this series.
