Just as good as Batman the animated series
13 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is show came after Batman:tas, it is just as good if not better in my opinion. The relationship between Lois and Superman/Clark is great right from the beginning. The crossovers with batman are great, and provide some of my favorite episodes. My favorite episode was when superman went undercover as batman and teamed up with robin because Bruce Wayne went missing.The Animation is great. While it was not as thin and cheap looking as "The New Batman Adventures" (don't get me wrong, that animation looked great) it wasn't as good as the animation in Batman Animated Series. While Batman TAS had the best animation, there were some episodes that had HORRIBLE animation, but with Superman this doesn't happen.
