Remember when Lois Lane was a feisty, attractive character that contrasted with Clark's plain, dull appearance?

I keep wondering who this is for. I mean, if I'm going to watch something animated, I'm going to watch anime, bar none. Better art, better plot, better voice acting, pretty much better in every way. Like, why would I watch this shit? There's no reason for me to do so.

Even capeshit fans, I don't see a point. Most people want to watch Snyder's shit for DC. The old cartoons were better.

Also...HOW MANY FUCKING COMING OF AGE STORIES DO WE NEED? SERIOUSLY. This is just getting fucking ridiculous. Invincible was a Superman coming of age story, and now we have a literal superman coming of age story.

Superman doesn't need a fucking coming of age story because nearly everyone on the fucking planet knows who he is. Who is this for? New fans? I hate to break it to HBO Max and DC, but younger fans don't give a shit about super heroes. They're busy watching anime and reading manga. They're going to make a face and just go back to watching MHA or Demon Slayer.

They're trying to court a new audience who isn't fucking interested in this shit while at the same time trying to keep the old audience who also isn't interested because they want the old shit.

These companies are so out of touch its unfuckingbelievable. Demon Slayer outsold all of American comics COMBINED. And that was ONE manga/anime. ONE. The amount of brutal rape the Japanese market is doing to the West is unreal, and the West STILL pushes out identical shit that has failed time and again for an audience of tumblrites that just does not exist.

The only good thing is that it isn't CalArts. But that's about it.
 
Thanks, I hate everything about this. Some things that haven't been hated enough yet:

1. What's the deal with Clark's notebook? You can see both covers dangling loosely with paper between them, so what's he holding on to? What's he writing on?

2. Is Black Jimmy #3's tie glued to his clothing? Is it made of adhesive tape?

3. Is Black Jimmy #3 going to take a picture with the lens cap on?

4. Why is Clark wearing a sweater while everyone else is in short sleeves?

5. Why is Ursa/Faora dressed like a human and manhandling Clark?

I think this is why that Superman & Lois series has been well-received. It does something more with the character of Superman. He has to be a father and help a struggling Smallville as Clark Kent. Because we all know that Superman can show up and beat the bad guys in an honorable and heroic fashion. But as cliche as it may sound, can he deal with children, teenagers as a matter of fact? It speaks more to the idea that a superhero is more than just being powerful, that they embody ideals we wish to have.

I'm just re-watching Castelvania, and even with the DotA series, Netflix fully adopted anime style art for their US animated series. But for some fucking reason no one else seems to and uses this trash. I don't understand, it doesn't even look good.

Yeah, that's more interesting than a coming of age story.

It certainly has been. A lot of the better Superman stories are the ones where he can't resolve the crisis, like that one where he tries to end world hunger and gets stopped by the sheer complexity of it all. In a similar vein, the show has Superman dealing with several impenetrable tasks. He has twin teenage sons, one of which has social anxiety disorder and is the only one of his children to develop superpowers. He moves his family to Smallville, which is now a dying Midwestern town. Superman can't fix any of these problems with his superpowers. He has to impart the lessons his parents taught him and rely on the strengths of his family to succeed.

Not to mention that this Superman is portrayed more like the Golden Age version, from his physique, costume, and even his personality. It helps to stand out from his depictions in animated series and the recent movies.

Weirdly enough if you all want an interesting Superman I would advise you all to get into the 1940s radio program. Superman isn't overreliant on his super powers, and some storylines involved him acting as Clark Kent in order to do things like get rid of corrupt politicians.

It was also aimed at very young children, but if everybody's talking about CalArts Superman then this won't be a problem as children were expected to be more intelligent back then than they are now.

It also depicts rural Americans with nuance instead of saying that they’re all racists etc. which is rare to see these days.
