Men of steel, chins of hugeness

Seriously, I think the Paul Dini, Bruce Timm, and company were at least a little influenced by the old Mighty Hercules cartoons when designing the look of their Superman series, don't you?


Not making any sort of accusations here... I'm sure it's completely intentional act of homage, but still, not the sort of thing I've ever heard referenced anywhere, and I think it's kind of cool.

Bruce Timm confirmed the Hercules inspiration in his "Modern Masters" book. He says he was stuck on how to design Superman and didn't know what direction to go in until he came across the show.
