In a time where every film franchise has an interconnected universe and a plethora of spin offs, its nice to be able to sit down and watch a hero's journey from beginning to end. 'My Adventures with Superman' does everything that the films are afraid to do, its funny, crazy, action packed and centered around love.


The most important aspect to any good Superman story is his connection with Lois Lane and this series gets it right. You see their relationship grow and thrive in front of your eyes in a way that's only been accomplished by the CW's 'Superman & Lois' series. Another aspect of Superman that has been long forgotten is Jimmy Olsen. This series captures his fun and whittyness perfectly. He's adventurous and easily the funniest part of the series. All 3 main characters feel incredibly natural. Their relationships and problems aren't just shoved under the rug in place of action, the last over episodes and grow as the plot grows.


Superman's origin story has been told over a dozen times now and is known to almost everyone. It's so sacred that it takes a special kind of person to mess with it. This series is that person. While the changes aren't crazy, you see a new side of superman's origin that hasn't been done before. While it will work for most, the "pure" DC fans will most likely be up in arms at any change whatsoever.


While this show does a lot right, it also has a few glaring issues. The overuse of technology in the series villains is definitely an odd choice. Characters that were once labeled "metahumans" are now normal people with pieces of tech. There was a point i had to stop and read the voice acting credits to figure out what characters i was actually seeing on screen. Going in hand with that, many design choices of the characters are very odd. The main trio are fantastic but many of the villains look almost like original characters.


A stellar cast and great animation, this series feels like youre reading a superman comic... or manga? DC's roster is full of characters that work with anime style animations. Characters like Superman, Green Lantern, and The Flash have such bright and flashy powers that this style allows you to go more crazy and wacky that you'd see in classic DC animation.


While not a perfect series, this show is just pure fun. Almost every character is great and the plot never feels boring. While i've only seen the fits 7 of 10 episodes, there's no doubt in my mind that with what was set up that this show is going to end with a slam dunk.
