Hot on the heels of Justice League: The Complete Series, Warner Bothers has hit another home run with its relase of Superman: The Complete Animated Series. This seven disc set will be available for you to own on DVD when it hits the stores on November 24, 2009.
This 54 episode collection features the complete Superman Animated series. In the fine tradition of the Batman Animated Series, these episodes are jam-packed with Superman stories featuring many of his well known villains and supporting cast. The set is packaged in a limited edition collector’s slipcase that will look great in your DVD collection. The seventh disc contains extra content, including a retrospective, “The Despot Darkseid: A Villain Worthy of Superman”.
Here’s WB’s official release:
Your spirits will soar with this complete series set from the popular TV series! Portraying the man and hero as human while keeping the comic book action at full speed, each animated adventure is a fast-paced spellbinder. Beginning with his arrival on Earth, Superman fins his place in his adopted home and accepts his role as its champion – facing mortal enemy Lex Luthor and countless other criminals like the Weather Wizard and the Toyman. High-Flying excitement, boundless thrills and revealing Exclusive Extras collide in this superior collection about the dynamic hero that inspires us all to strive for truth and justice.
The total run time of this great set is 1182 minutes and the menus are easy to navigate and very well done. This set would make a great holiday gift for any fan of The Man of Steel! This set retails for $54.98 US but can be found at a discount on online sites such as Amazon. Please note that the discs in this set are double sided which some critisize as being prone to scratching; however, I have not had that problem.
Thanks to WB for sending this great DVD set to me for review.
