Trivia

Though Lobo was virtually unchanged from his comic appearances, the character is, nevertheless, significantly different from his comic book roots, as his modus operandi has been simplified for younger audiences. Much like appearances by Carnage and the Punisher on FOX Kids' Spider-Man (1994) series, Lobo had to be toned down in terms of his activities, resulting in a character that alluded to excessive violence without perpetuating much of it on camera. Gone was the "kill 'em all" approach to bounty hunting, as well as his trademark metal hook (seen briefly on this series, but replaced by a crowbar in most scenes), as he took his targets alive rather than dead.

Superman rocks thanks to this cartoon!
8 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

I was never a big Superman fan growing up. I watched Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, love Christopher Reeve's Superman, and I watched this animated series. The animated series is a personal favorite of mine along with my favorite super hero, Spider-Man. I loved both these series in the 90's. I don't like Batman though. The animated series is back on JETIX. As is Spider-Man. I highly recommend this show. Along with Smallville. Forget Superman Returns! It was an absolute failure! The Spider-Man films are perfect along with Christopher Reeve's Superman movies! But, skip Superman Returns! The voice acting is awesome.
