* TruerToTheText: While the series may have had the cases of AdaptationDistillation, AdaptationalOriginConnection, AdaptationalWimp[=/=]{{Nerf}}, CompositeCharacter, and CanonForeigner, ''Superman: The Animated Series'' is the most faithful (and [[CanonImmigrant influential]]) adaptation of the Creator/DCComics series as well as Superman (along with his mythos, supporting characters, allies, and rogue gallery) in general in comparison to all of the Superman adaptations that have been created both before and after the show (particularly the live action ones).

Added DiffLines:

** Luthor is very similar to Telly Savalas' portrayal of [[Characters/JamesBondBlofeld Ernst Stavro Blofeld]] in ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService''. Like Blofeld, Luthor is a rich cretin with a thirst for respectability. Also, he's quick to drop the genteel act and throw down if necessary.

* GPSEvidence: Jimmy Olsen finds a game token dropped by Intergang in "Little Girl Lost" and believes that tracing its source will lead them to Intergang. He and Supergirl travel all over Metropolis looking for an arcade that uses that particular token, but when they find it [[SubvertedTrope it is just an average arcade than some members of Intergang happen to patronize]]. [[DoubleSubverted Including two members who are there right at that very moment.]]

Standalone episodes were, of course, not unknown. Intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo showed up to collect a Kryptonian pelt. Toyman was recreated as a thoroughly creepy PsychopathicManchild. A new female villain, Livewire, was introduced, and while not as popular as ''Batman: The Animated Series''[='s=] Harley Quinn, similarly [[CanonImmigrant made the jump to the mainline DC Universe]]. An [[GreatGazoo imp from another dimension]] named Mr. Mxyzptlk showed up twice to give Superman fits. A pair of Kryptonian criminals were paroled from their [[PhantomZone extradimensional prison]], only to wreak havoc on Earth. And, of course, {{Franchise/Batman}} came to town, hot on the Joker's trail after the latter had gotten his hands on a massive chunk of Kryptonite. The more sci-fi feel of the show allowed DC characters that would have seemed out of place on ''Batman'' (like TheFlash, the {{Franchise/Green Lantern}}s, and ComicBook/DoctorFate) to show up.

** TheFlash. Although it is never stated which Flash is in ''Speed Demons'', he is confirmed to be Wally West in WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague. His personality has a lot in common with Bart Allen and he has Barry Allen's day job as a forensic scientist.

** Lois and Lana can slip into this when they are in the same episode. At first sight, Lana would be Betty and Lois would be Veronica as in the comics; but Lois's proximity makes her more attainable, while Lana grew from Clark's tame childhood friend into someone who freely manipulates through sexuality, in stark contrast to the comics of the post-Crisis DC Universe.
