Best of Superman, The (DVD)

The super-human crime-fighting champion who started it all battles the forces of evil in 14 breathtaking fan-favorite, animated episodes drawn from multiple Superman series. Together for the first time ever on two collectible DVDs, it's the Man of Steel starring in over four hours of the most astonishing animated adventures. "The Last Son of Krypton" chronicles the young Kal-El's journey from infancy to invincible superhero. Then, witness more gravity-defying exploits in the Academy Award (R)- nominated classic "Superman" and an Earth-shattering fight against the Legion of Doom in "Wanted: Super Friends". Next, Kryptonian rogues run amok in "Terror from the Phantom Zone" and Superman takes on his most formidable arch-nemesis in "The Doomsday Sanction." And that's just a sampling of the action-packed super heroes awaiting you in The Best of Superman.

I guess I came into this with very high expectations after the excellent Best of Batman DVD release, but sadly this was greatly disappointing.
Whereas Batman's "best of" sourced episodes primarily from Bruce Timm's run on the character throughout the nineties and 00s, this one only features the three-episode "Superman: The Animated Series" and two episodes of "Justice League Unlimited". Which may not be a bad thing, after all, other Superman series had good runs, such as the Max Fleischer series of theatrical shorts, the 1960s "The New Adventures of Superman" series and the 1988 Ruby-Spears cartoon simply titled "Superman". Sadly, only one Fleischer short was included, only one short (less than 15 minutes) segment of "The New Adventures of Superman" was used, and nothing was included from the Ruby-Spears series.
Instead, the primary "meat" of this DVD is Super Friends, and about half the Super Friends episodes featured on this DVD set do not even feature Superman in the spotlight. In fact, some do not feature him at all. Given that over half the set's content is Super Friends, it leaves us with a depressingly Superman-free "Best of Superman".

There are so many good Superman cartoon episodes out there, including the "Justice League" two-parter titled "Hereafter", that to call this not-even-all-that-Superman-heavy DVD set a "Best Of Superman" is insulting.
All in all, save your money, buy the "Best of Batman" DVD set instead, or better yet, use the money you saved by not buying this to save towards purchasing a Superman: The Animated Series boxset, a Justice League boxset or a Max Fleischer's Superman boxed set.

More team stories here than Superman solo. All shows are represented from the 40s to the 2000s. Nice way to get a sampling without having to buy all the shows separately.
