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. Everyone all kind of agreed with that, so the JLA idea was dropped. See more »

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.
