You know you are a major fan, or geek, if you prefer, when you can look over an MSN infographic about Superman and find at least two errors on it.
It seems interesting that for a company that has not been able to stick a landing in the theaters (the Batman movies excluded), DC Comics’ animated DVDs are head and shoulders above the competition (namely, Marvel). Given the choice, I would much rather watch any of the DC titles that have come out on DVD than the few Marvel titles, most of which have just been pretty bad.
For those who are looking for a good watch, and are not sidled with the conception that animation is only for children, I have a few suggestions for you.

They called you exotic. Which is just people talk for awesome. Which you are.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Mark Hamill was the perfect voice for the Joker in the Batman animated series. He managed to capture the maniacal psychotic so well that they have returned to Hamill over and over whenever they have needed a voice artist for the clown prince of crime.
I’m over it. What about you two?
Batman – from “Superman/Batman: Apocalypse”
1) Swamp Thing – Specificly The Anatomy Lesson story written by Alan Moore.
2) Metamorpho – He’s been seen in guest shots, but nothing that is completely his own.
3) Starman – Jack Knight returns in a retelling of his origin as Starman.
4) Blackhawks – Set in either the WW2 or post WW2 era.
5) Dial H For Hero – Would like to see the concept of a variable hero animated.
6) The Creeper – Jack Ryder’s crazed alter ego would make an excellent dark piece like the Spectre short.
7) Camelot 3000 – Not a DC Universe title per se, but a series that would make an excelent animated feature
8) Blue Devil – Would be interesting to see the origin story of Blue Devil (before the mystical stuff really took over).
9) DC Detectives – Bringing together a trio of DC’s classic detectives, Roy Raymond, Jason Bard and Mysto, combining their investigative skills to solve “the crime of the century.”
10) G.I. Robot – Set in WW2 Pacific, This gritty version would bring the Weird War Tales character to life.
