You know, if there’s any other reason to enjoy TSSM because of writing, characterization and faithfulness to the material? Same reason I enjoy the DCAU and Young Justice.
In my mind they’ve been the perfect marriage between Silver Age and Modern Age comics. Good at crafting serious stories and getting dark, but unapologetic for the fun moment or comic bookish elements.
Actually same can be said about the A:EMH and Wolverine & The X-Men. Best of both the Silver and Modern.
I love all those shows
