Superman: The Animated Series Easter Egg - Mourners at Dan Turpin's Funeral

In "Apokolips Now! Part 2", at the very end, as Dan Turpin is laid to rest, your POV scans the assembled mourners. You will see many superheroes in funereal clothing; The Fantastic Four (Thing is shadowed), Nick Fury, Peter Parker, and others, all characters that Jack Kirby had worked on thru his long career. Consider that Kirby was the visual model for the animated Turpin, a character he had created. Now see the last frames.....words fade in on screen that say "Dedicated to the memory of Jack Kirby
Long Live The King".
Jack "The King" Kirby had died not long before this episode was made.

Among those people are Various DC staffers and also Alex Ross who painted one of the greatest Superman stories "Kingdom Come". Though it may be hard to see in America because on in the UK the inking job wasn't as blurred.
