Some people can say more in a minute nearly without words than others can in nearly 3 hours…nearly without words too.

Whew Ok, now that I’ve stopped tearing up long enough to type, I want to say this was nicely done. In a way while the scene is pretty powerful with the dialog of the actual comic there’s something about the getting it down to just Superman reaching out his hand to someone who is visibly in despair, pulling them literally and figuratively from the edge and embracing them that is just beautiful. One of the single most effective uses of Zimmer’s score I’ve seen as well.

It had a similar effect on me as well. I can’t put into words how I felt while watching the clip. The animation is amazing, but adding Zimmer’s score was just breathtaking.

Cool video! I’m not even a fan of Zimmer’s score, but it was used well here!

Nice job with the animation! Loved the colors and background.

Superman, of course, looked FANTASTIC! Great to see the red trunks/correct costume again… Thank you. :-)

This was awesome! This scene was my favorite part of AllStar Superman. I really wish they would’ve included it in the animated movie. The world at large is missing out. (Also, they should’ve made the movie with the Young Justice art, IMO. I hate Frank Quietly’s style)

I agree with you there. Quietly’s art is one of the things that keeps me liking but not loving All Star. His layouts are alright but his wrinkly lumpy style just doesn’t fit well IMO. I know he was supposedly shooting for a Wayne Boring look but Boring’s Superman still looks like a superhero to me.

The YJ artstyle would be fine with me and it’s definitely the style of designer Phil Bourassa that I prefer over what it turned into for later DC animated projects where it looks like the characters neck muscles are going to consume their heads.
