Trivia:
While this film features the same character designs, general look and style, and some of the previous cast members of "Superman" (1996), this film is in no way part of the same universe or canon. Duane Capizzi stated that this was indeed a film for children and was not intended for an adult audience that the animated series had been written for (despite being marketed as a Saturday morning show). He said that he and the creative team simply "borrowed" the designs of the former television show.See more »

Oh, how I wish I had read the reviews first!!!, 21 June 2006
Author: Taigan from Boston

Excited by the release of the Animated Superman's 3rd season and the 2nd of Justice League, I decided "what the heck" and bought Braniac Attacks on DVD. There, quite simply, could have been no worse way to spend $15.

The counter on my DVD player read one minute and 34 seconds when I realized I had made a mistake. It's one thing if they couldn't get Clancy Brown to reprise his role as Luthor, but it seems that the writers also forgot who he was. This Lex Luthor was far more reminiscent of Gene Hackman's unbelievable geek (and, as I understand, the upcoming Kevin Spacey portrayal). The characters all have drifted from their origins (since when did Lois actually *moon* over Superman?) I am not one to be surprised when direct-to-video animation sequels turn out to be cheap imitations of the original, but this is so far beyond that!

Whether you are a fan of the series yourself, or have kids who are, you absolutely should *not* waste money on this piece of trash.
