We wrap up our Thanos vs. Darkseid series by watching the series finale of Superman: the Animated Series, “Legacy.” In these episodes, Darkseid brainwashes Superman into doing his bidding in an attempt to invade Earth. We talk about Darkseid as a character, the show’s metaphor for the eternal struggle between good & evil, and the challenges of fitting a story this big into an episode this short.

Our “DC Let Downs” series concludes with one of the most lauded comics of all time, “Final Crisis” by Grant Morrison. This 7-issue comic is the end play of the incredibly long build-up that spanned multiple DCU-wide events. We talk about all the narrative problems, the character problems, and the WTF problems because, really, none of the good ideas from this comic had any room to shine through a cloud of anti-life haze.
