I was looking through my YouTube feed trying to find something to watch during my break time when I came across Caped Joel’s video on the Adventures of the Super Sons series. I thought it had been cancelled, so I clicked on the video. Yeah, it turns out it is still cancelled but they are doing a short run to finish up what was already done.
It’s a shame that the series is ending because it was great to see Robin (Damian) and Superboy (Jon) team-up. It’s like reading a Batman and Superman comic only more…uh, teenage. The two aren’t young version of Batman and Superman; they have their own personalities; but at the same time, it kind of makes you feel like this is how Batman and Superman would have acted towards each other if they’d meet as teens. You feel like you’re reading a comic from “the good old days” but also reading a “modern” story.
It’s really entertaining to see what kind of mischief, misadventure, and more traditional heroics the two get involved in. The two make a great team and the stories are well written and well drawn. I hope DC will bring the series back one day in some form.
