    I prefer this series to most of the 90 minutes DC movies that have come since. Both Justice League and Unlimited. Didn't Warren Ellis and JM DeMateiss write some episodes?

    DeMatteis adapted the "For the man who has everything" episode. And it have the merit of being the only Moore aproved adaptation. (At least as told the legend ).

    I remember Dematteis did the Booster Gold episode and that was one of the best ones which is saying something because JL and JLU just hit it out of the park regularly.

    Well, there's also Eddie Campbell's comics of his stage work in the 90s/00s, Antony Johnston's of Fashion Beast & The Courtyard... but that's getting away from the point:

    TZ: My understanding is that you guys sent along [a tape of] "For The Man Who Has Eveything." Did you ever hear back (From Moore)?

    McDuffie: Yep. He liked it.

    I'm usually lukewarm on DeMatteis, but he really did some of his best work on JLU.

    Oh, and speaking of whom, here's an unaired Superbuddys-based script, in case anyone's interested:

    I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed YJ, but there were three things about it I found hard to swallow:
    1) The JL got way too comfortable throwing the kids in the deep end of the pool.
    2) Given they were so comfortable throwing the kids in the deep end of the pool (and that the kids plain butt-whupped Amazo), the kids should have graduated to the bigs halfway through the first season.
    3) It's another case of Bat-worship: any take where Batman has to coach Superman on being kind and sensitive doesn't have a decent grip on the characters.

    That would have been AWESOME! I'm sorry they never made it.

    Oh wow, I never knew about this! This would've been awesome. The only thing missing is Booster and Sue, but at least we'd have finally had Ice speak .

    Young Justice is the only one that can even come close to DCAU

    Disagree with this. Superman has always been a bit standoffish with youth that carry his insignia. Batman on the other hand has trained several sidekicks as well as had close relationships with Batgirl and others. It's an odd paradox the two characters share. Superman is seen as the jovial sensitive guy but actually strangely standoffish even with family members (see Supergirl), but Batman the socalled loner has a huge family around him.

    Warren Ellis wrote the Dark Heart episode.

    Having a large family doesn't make him good at it.

    Seriously, it's hard to say what Superman's attitude toward most things is because there's been so many interpretations of Superman over the ages. IIRC, the Supergirl issues are all post-Crisis (and really, post-Doomsday). However, my point is, being kind has not been an issue for Superman since the Bronze Age, and getting coaching on that from Batman was jarring. With that clarification, I stick with my original comment.

    This show sparked my love for DC. I grew up as a teen watching these shows, and I loved them. The author was right... Unlimited introduced me to DC's 2nd and 3rd tier characters - one's I came to love and respect. I started my comics career as a Marvel reader... but about a year or so later, I became a full on DC fan. Mostly because I was more acquainted with their universe from when I was a child. In hind sight, Unlimited was the beginning of my adoration for DC comics.

    Yep. I love them all. No need to have any more internecine wars.
