When villains dump superheroes into death traps, they will leave, always assuming their plan is fulfilled, even though it never ever works out that way, ever.

    It's a good idea to reveal your power's limits on the newspaper so any villain can use it against you.

        If you're a kid, don't ever let Superman help you. Your mom will slap you because she will think you're lying when you tell her.

            Fragments of the planet Krypton apparently made their way to Earth despite the two worlds being many light-years apart. How fortunate for Lex Luthor.

              Superman fights for truth, justice and the American Way, but what if he'd landed in the Soviet Union?

              Christopher Reeve got no respect in this movie. Of course, he was a no-name actor going in, but he was credited third in the film, behind Gene Hackman (#2, not unreasonable), and Marlon Brando (#1, who got like 15 minutes or so of screen time.)

              Superman can NEVER lose. If he does, he will fly backwards around the Earth until he gets to the moment before he fails, and fix it every time.

                  After Superman spun the world around, people can still remember a nuclear bomb going off and the ground and electric poles behind them were collapsing even though it never happened.

                          It's no wonder Miss Teschmacher remained a villain for Superman II. Asking Superman to sacrifice the West Coast to save New Jersey?

                              If Lex Luthor had picked just about any location for the second missile's destination, ANY ONE AT ALL, Superman would have died from Kryptonite exposure at the bottom of that pool, and the new West Coast would belong to Lex. Talk about extraordinarily bad luck.

                                There was two missles because Otis screwed up the coordinates of the first one.

                              It took Clark about seven seconds or so to describe the exact contents of Lois' purse. You're supposed to be maintaining a secret identity! You couldn't have added or subtracted one or two items from your analysis?

                                If Superman goes back in time to save a single person, he'll forget that there are nuclear explosions and earthquakes going on elsewhere while he has a tender moment with Lois.

                                    Red sun makes Kryptonians human. Yellow sun makes them Jesus.

                                      If our yellow sun gives Kryptonians super powers, does a red sun give humans super powers?

                                              There has never been a live launch of a Nuclear Missile by the United States. Ever.

                                                The Untied States Government was actually very upset that the movie used a live Nuclear War test of missiles flying over the US.
