A nice origin of Superman... and Brainiac too
16 April 2018 | by Milk_Tray_GuySee all my reviews

This compilation movie from Superman: The Animated Series (STAS) condenses Superman's origin into three arcs and locations - Krypton, Smallville, and Metropolis. It's close to the original comic, the only major change being that Superman's origin is now interestingly - and cleverly - linked with that of his famous foe Brainiac. We see Superman's introduction to Lois Lane and the Daily Planet, his first meeting with Lex Luthor, and get an early hint of the shared continuity that will become known as the DC Animated Universe (DCAU) (an amusing mention of "that nut in Gotham City"). It's not all great; the Krypton segment drags in places, the Smallville segment feels like it needed more time, the dated art/animation style jars, and the final showdown isn't that exciting. The voice work is all good though, and it does serve as a nice introduction to Superman generally and STAS in particular. Overall 7/10
