You have probably seen the Superman 75 animated short, and now we get a behind the scenes look at the piece thanks to Dusty Abell.

I got to be a part of the cool little Superman 75 short spearheaded by the amazing Jay Oliva and Bruce Timm. This is a line-up I did of all the different incarnations of Superman through the years that were being considered for inclusion in the short. It’s kinda fun to see them all next to one another and observe what changed from year to year and decade to decade. This project was a lot of fun to be a part of.

    Interesting that there is no Lois & CLark Superman represented or no Smallville Superman represented. I wonder if that is more to do with the fact that these examples were not really Tales of Superman, but tales of Clark Kent with Precursers and Portence of the Man of Steel? But if that is the case… Was Brandon Routh Seen?

      There was the Smallville series logo on the water tower when Kingdom Come Superman flew by, so that was at least represented to a degree. I think it fits, too, since he wasn’t truly Superman until the very end of the final episode.

    I still like to appreciate that barring some brief past, (and current) changes, that Superman’s costume has largely remained unchanged.

    Am I the only one that didn’t absolutely hate the whole “red and blue” Superman/men?

      I like the costumes and power concept, just not for Superman of the main DCU. For an alternate Earth Superman or as a different character/characters in the Superman stable (not unlike Steel having at least once been part of that while not having Superman-like powers) I think it would work much better.
