Top 10 Superman Animated Series Episodes

Following the massive critical and commercial success of Batman The Animated Series, we were treated to the new animated adventures of Superman. Helmed by the same crew, Bruce Timm and company presented us with a Superman who, while maybe not the strongest version ever, was still smart and tough enough to call himself the Man of Steel.
