The Death and Return of Superman

I'm not a fan of Superman.  I quite dislike him as a character and usually sum up my feelings towards him by calling him a 'living macguffin'.  I've seen some good stories that involve him but none of them are actually centered on him (I have yet to read Red Sun though, which I keep hearing is quite good).  Every story I've seen where Superman is the focus is riddled with lazy writing and painful plot conveniences that make suspension of disbelief a trying chore.
This video takes a good look at one of the most popular of those stories.  It also has Simon Pegg, so if there wasn't a reason to watch it before, there is now.

Super Best Friends Forever

So it would appear Lauren Faust is working on another new show that shows some serious promise.  This is a clip from 'Super Best Friends Forever' which involves established female superheroes from the DC Universe in an animated comedy.
This woman made My Little Pony great; this should be freaking fantastic.
