  • Superman Changes

    Legacy altered Superman forever in the DCAU. Darkseid like Star Trek's Khan did worse than kill Superman he hurt him by having the . to fear him and was the catalyst for the formation of Project Cadmus.
  • Superman breaks free of Darkseid's control and goes to Apokolips to try to stop Darkseid once and for all.

    You couldn’t pick a more satisfying series finale than “Legacy”. With the world viewing him as danger to mankind and then locked up in secret military base, what is left for the Man of Steel? Revenge! The story is nicely structured and the ending is both clever and moving. There are some good emotional moments through out this episode like Supergirl being seriously injured and an old friend refusing to help. The relationship between Superman and Lois Lane was nicely presented. The slugfest between Superman and Darkseid is the real highlight of this episode. There are some fierce blows, great quotes and an interesting outcome. Overall, “Legacy” is the best episode of the series.
