The boys continue with their stay in Metropolis, covering two episodes of Superman: The Animated Series once again on this week’s edition of The DCAU Review.

Listen to the brothers talk about Brainiac’s character motivation, his chemistry and contrast with Lex Luthor, a important moment that goes on to impact Justice League Unlimited, and the return of Liam talking #CapeMovement.

Just like Superman and Batman, Cal & Liam RETURN, this time with the 16th episode of the DCAU Review. This week, the brothers dissect the Superman: The Animated Series episode entitled “Brave New Metropolis” and are surprised to find it doesn’t quite hold the nostalgic charm with which they had remembered. Topics discussed include the hit and miss aspects of this story’s execution of the “rogue Superman” storyline, Liam’s rage at an incredulous Lois Lane, and way too many references to a certain despised episode of Batman: The Animated Series.
Episode 15 of the DCAU Review find the brothers finishing their trip to Apokolips in this classic episode of Superman: The Animated Series. Cal and LIam discuss the first appearance of *gasp* blood, Superman as Jesus and the incredibly moving on screen death of a beloved supporting character. All of this plus the return of #CapeMovement and our overall episode scorecard!
