Superman is a fun show all around. One of the most powerful beings on earth and yet so relatable and humble. You can watch superman grow from a baby on krypton to a leader of the justice league. There are some inconsistencies with his character. It's weird knowing he's almost fast as flash but still gets knocked my someone like lex. Strong enough to go toe to toe with darksied but still gets thrown by a robot. It makes superman look silly and wonder if he even knows what to do with all those powers of his. Besides that, it's still fun to watch.

Completely, absolutely, magnificently wonderful! If you liked "Superman, the Animated Series: Volume 1," then you'll adore and love "Superman, the Animated Series: Volume 2" because the best episodes of the 1997 animated series are here! Viewers first get introduced to one of Superman's most trickiest enemies - Mr. Mxyzptlk!!!!! A powerful being from the 5th dimmension, Mr. Mxyzptlk, is very hard for Superman to beat in the episode. Other great super-villains make their first appearance here too. Such characters include: Luminus, Karkull, Bizarro, and Darkseid (Darkseid made a small cameo in Volume 1, but this is his true first episode). In three of these great episodes, Barman and Superman must team-up in order to defeat Lex Luther and The Joker who are working together to destroy The Man of Steel! Also.....Superman meets his clone, Metallo returns with amnesia, someone is trying to secretly kill Lois Lane (but who?), Braniac downloads himself into Lex Luthor's computer, Parasite and Livewire team-up, Clark Kent is thought to be dead, Lois Lane gets stuck in an alternate version of Metropolis, and Superman must battle a really big monkey!

Here are the following episodes found in this 2-disc box-set and the grades I give them:

DISC 1:
- Identity Crisis (A+)
- Target (A+++)
- Action Figures (A+++)
- Mxyzpixilated (A+++)
- Double Dose (A+)
- Solar Power (A)

DISC 2, SIDE A:
- Monkey Fun (A)
- Brave New Metropolis (A+)
- Ghost in the Machine (A or A-)
- World's Finest: Part I (A+++)
- World's Finest: Part II (A+++)
- World's Finest: Part III (A+++)

DISC 2, SIDE B:
- Father's Day (A-)
- The Hand of Fate (A-)
- Bizarro's World (A+)
- Prototype (A-)
- The Late Mr. Kent (A+++)
- Heavy Metal (A)

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- Verbal Villain Bios by the show's creators.
- Video Commentary on "Mxyzpixilated" by producers, writer, and director of the episode.
- Audio Commentary on "Brave New Metropolis" by producers, art director, and series director.
- Audio Commentary on "World's Finest: Part I" by producers, art director, and series director.
- Trailers/Previews.
- Spoken Languages: English & French (episodes only).
- Subtitles: English & French & Spanish (episodes only).

This volume is very exciting and action-packed. With very, very, very good plots and story lines - this is even better than the comics! While, this is a children's show, I can asure you that it will NOT be ONLY accepted and loved by children. This is true entertainment and adults enjoy it, too. You don't find good shows like these anymore, so I recommend you to start the Timm/Dini animated DC universe collection on DVD box-sets! Even if you're not a Superman fan, if you liked 1992's "Batman: The Animated Series," (and even if you didn't) you'll definetely love this. "Superman: The Animated Series" rocks!!! Buy this for a new generation of children, because it's worth it!

Again, DC Comics please let Bruce Timm direct all your live action films. They will be great just like this series is.

Though often overlooked when paired alongside the famous Batman cartoon, the Superman animated series stands up every bit as well. Dana Delaney's is still considered one of the very best portrayals of Lois Lane, and Clancy Brown excels as Lex Luthor. This is just a great introduction to Superman, remixing the best elements of all of the character's previous incarnations.

Some of the single one-off episodes can be a little silly at times, but they are still fun. Taking this into consideration, the series really grew in the second season. The episodes concentrating on Darkside are some of the best in the series and really set things up for the creators to continue with the Justice League. Overall it was great to revisit the series.

This is the start of the real DC extended universe in this season. I already know at the time of this review, even if WW JL and The Batman films are awesome it will not live up to the DC animated universe because WB rushed to make marketable products instead of real characters.

Once again I like the artwork and stories but in most situations Superman is much too under powered compared to his comic book stories and even the movies. Its almost silly at what makes him strain lol

In the first episode it took everything he had to stop a small to medium sized jet from crash landing.
