@Primmaster64: I agree.
#8 Posted by Precise (22886 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, he should get a new one. Same with Wonder Woman.

@Primmaster64: Certainly do. The episodes with Darkseid were awesome.

@Primmaster64: If he ever gets a new show, I would like to be something serious, not like recent Batman.

Superman's had a lot of shows. 
 
Adventures of Superman 
Adventures of Superboy 
Superboy 
Lois & Clark 
Smallville 
 
Fleischer shorts 
Filmation series (New Adventures, Superman / Aquaman Hour, Batman / Superman Hour) 
Hanna-Barbera series (Super Friends, etc.) 
Superman (Ruby Spears) 
Superman (Bruce Timm; which could fairly include the JL & JLU series) 
Krypto the Superdog 
Legion of Super Heroes 
 
Not to mention appearances in Static Shock, Batman Beyond, The Batman, Batman Brave & The Bold and the up coming Young Justice... and all the direct to disc features like Doomsday, New Frontier, Public Enemies, Crisis on Two Earths, Apocalypse, Shazam!, and All Star! 
  
... 

I'm not saying I don't want to see a Superman cartoon, but I also wouldn't mind focusing on building on the rest of the DC IP a bit as a breather after Smallville and before the 2012 feature film (after which, I can pretty much guarantee some form of Superman TV property- as much as comic fans like to bag on him, the Big S is $ for Warner Bros).

@Mainline: Animated show...of him only
#18 Posted by Shanana (53023 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd personally like to see more Green Lantern and Flash

#19 Posted by Mainline (1129 posts) - - Show Bio

If Young Justice gets a second season and GL is going strong after Superman 2012... you might be able to watch full 90 minute block of DC animated shows on CN (if not more, Nolan's Batman 3 might spark yet another Batman series).

#20 Posted by Theworldbreaker (1642 posts) - - Show Bio

What the guy above me said...but some cameos of other characters should happen every now and then.....and it should be WAY better then that stupid batman the brave and the bold show they need to eather make it as good as the TAS or BETTER.

Green Lantern will have a show soon. As for the Flash, I agree, he should have one.

Then he's still tied with The Bat.  Although I'm kinda of torn on this.  Bruce Timm got to do the perfect exclusively Batman series, but Timm's take on Superman had guest stars in about a third of the episodes, the villain origins occupy the other third, and serial storytelling and Supergirl crowded Clark out of the final third of episodes such that Superman's characterization almost took a backseat in his own series- compared to Batman where the character was crystallized so perfectly.  That serial style of storytelling was developed in Superman and carried over to Justice League. 
 
So, on one hand, I would love to see a Superman person (versus Timm who, while talented, is very much a Batman person) do their take on an exclusively Superman show so that he gets that same sort of iconic treatment.  I think it's fair to say there are far fewer people who feel strongly that Timm's interpretation of Superman is the best if not the one and only... compared to how people feel about his Batman.  So it would be cool to see that for such a marquee character. 
 
But, on the other hand, because Superman such a household name he's easily a better gateway character into the DCU than most.  So it makes sense for his show to be flooded with guest appearances and crossovers- stealing the spotlight, sure, but Supes is an icon who can afford to.  I'd say this latter bit is better for DC awareness in general but the former is better for Supes.  I dunno... it sounds weird, but despite being one of the less grounded and more fantastical comic book characters, it seems like Superman inhabits pop-culture through live action more powerfully than animation. 
 
All that said... if it's just wishful thinking, no strategy or long term goals in mind, and pure selfish desire... of course I want to see a new animated Superman series!

No my point is that something Supes is a lock after Superman 2012.  So you will get Young Justice (hopefully season 2, but maybe just reruns, heaven forbid), Green Lantern, and Superman something by 2012... I'm saying that if Nolan Batman 3 is big enough you will have Batman something too
 
Which would mean two hours of animated DCU.

Flash, GL, and Booster Gold should have their own shows...

#29 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

GL is getting its own show soon ( thank God, its about time)., But I want a Supes cartoon...I'm tired of Bats dude.

@Primmaster64: awesoness is not about physical strenght, otherwise superboy prime would be cool, he is not. The awesome of Superman is him showing the entire universe what a hero is while wearing a costume that looks totally silly.

the only place superboy prime would have in that show is getting his ass rightfully handed to him.

that's why he won't appear. No TV station will air a show with Superman beating up a kid.

What about Bizarro? He Wasn't Even a Week old and Supes let him blow up.

he had the body of an adult, so it makes it O.K. TV stations are not the smartest bunch and moral dilemmas are beyond them.

I would like to see this again, but others should get a spotlight too like Captain Marvel and Flash. What would Keystone City look like animated...?
