Did You Know?


On the audio commentary for the dvd release of this episode, Bruce W. Timm personally storyboarded the showdown between Superman and Darkseid, because he felt he knew these characters well enough, and he knew how much they despised each other, and it would only work properly if that energy and emotion was captured properly on paper first.

Superman: You're first on my list!
Granny Goodness: A joke! It was only a joke, my little sugardrop!
Superman: I'm not laughing...
Granny Goodness: Now, now, don't be cross. Let Granny make everything... better...

a metaphor for the whole series
15 February 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Not merely a great 2-parter to end the series, but there are subtle messages here as well. Why (you ask, or at least YOU SHOULD ASK) did the Batman TAS capture so many viewers over so long a run yet, the very same production team essentially (until arguably the final season) stumbled and fell with Superman? Why have there been so many iterations of Spiderman, Wolverine and other Marvel characters -- yet, from the DC side, Dini's two series pretty much represent the highpoint of these sagas in the current era? The answer to these questions (and I have touched on this in earlier reviews) has to do with the character as originally drawn. In a sense, the Marvel stable tends to create characters without limitations and - speaking broadly here -- the DC team, especially with their forebear, Superman, tends to go the opposite way. So little can hurt him. He is so unambiguous morally. And Lex Luthor is so $^$*^% boring. With this 2-parter Dini and co. took off the gloves, and want "Dark Knight" on old Supe. Turns out at the end of the day, he is still an alien and no one really ever accepted him. Turns out that Lex is not the only one (on Earth) who would like to do him harm. Turns out he is (err...) human sometimes and has a temper. Turns out that he can reach wrong conclusions like anyone else. All in all, a tremendous ending, and one which ironically shows us HOW THIS SERIES COULD HAVE GONE if they had freed themselves of the character's "restraints" from the getgo.
