From 1996-2000, Superman: The Animated series followed in the footsteps of Batman: The Animated Series by introducing an entire generation to a version of Superman who fought to do what was right no matter what and always found a better way in the face of adversity. Sure, he had to wear a suit to survive the vacuum of space long term and got banged up by lasers once in awhile, but when it came to raw characterization, most would agree that the cartoon presented a definitive version of the last son of Krypton. A true hero. Then there's this past summer's Man of Steel, which... did not necessarily communicate the same characterization. Screen Junkies contrasts the two versions of Supes in a new "Man of Steel: The Animated Series" mashup parody, which you can see after the cut. Spoiler warning if you haven't quite seen MoS yet, although if you've read the comics internet at all since June you don't have too much to worry about.
