for Superman's 50th anniversary, DC Comics had Ruby-Spears make a new Superman cartoon. it's now been released on a 2 disc DVD set. I watched this when it debuted in 1988, well, some of the episodes, anyway. I don't remember much about them.
I remember thinking it still didn't have enough action for my liking. it was definitely a step up from the anemic Superfriends, and had some gorgeous designs by the late comics legend Gil Kane, but there was no hard hitting super fights. how boring is that? pretty boring, actually. Superman did get to fight a variety of robots, and I think Titano makes an appearance (I have only watched 6 of the 13 episodes.
Marv Wolfman's name is a plus as well, though apparently he was hired not because of his comics expertise but based on a Superman parody he did for The Garbage Pail Kids.
whatever got him there I'm thankful for. the episodes are all followed by flashbacks to when Clark was a kid, and these range from cute to something Uncle Mort would be proud of (nearly too sweet).
and apparently I needed to watch one more episode, as Wonder Woman herself shows up to help Superman out on a case. I do wish they hadn't used Luthor as the villain in nearly every episode. got old in a hurry.
a good show.
