While we're close to wrapping up our celebration of Superman turning 80 soon at SYFY WIRE, we hope that our spotlight on the Man of Steel has rekindled some of the magical stories and comics he's been involved in, no matter the media. Take Superman: The Animated Series, for example, which aired off the heels of Batman: The Animated Series and is arguably the finest non-comics treatment of Superman.

Developed by screenwriters Alan Burnett and Paul Dini, Superman: TAS gave us a much longer look at Krypton before it blew up, way before it was done in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Superman's rogues gallery was given the true spotlight, pushing beyond Lex Luthor and General Zod. The action was always big whether, Supes was fighting Mentallo, Brainiac or the Parasite. There was also the classic team-ups with Batman, and with appearances of the Flash and Green Lantern we were offered a glimpse of the future Justice League Animated Series on the horizon.

The show featured incredible voice talent, including Tim Daly as Superman, Dana Delaney as Lois Lane, and Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor, with a guest star lineup that still stands up. With 54 glorious episodes over three seasons, there are many standouts and we managed to narrow down our seven favorites.

Did you see your favorite episodes of Superman: TAS on our list? Do you think we missed one or that another was more worthy? Let us know in the comments.
