  • Quotes

    • Lois Lane: (Looking at a video of Superman as he flys away after saving an airplane and refering to the S logo on his costume) Nice S.
      Clark: Excuse me?

    • Clark: Now that the terrorists have your prototype, the Pentagon is undoubtedly gonna want you to build a bigger and better version for them. When all is said and done, this could net you a multimillion dollar windfall.
      Lex: Lois, it almost sounds as if your friend here is suggesting I should be glad that my suit was stolen. You're very amusing Mr.... Kent, is it? Yes, I'll remember that.

    • Martha: I don't want anyone thinking you're like that nut in Gotham City.

    • Superman: (to Corben) Shall we go a few rounds without the suit?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • At the docks, a burly man in a captain's hat is seen. The sailor has one eye squinched--a reference to Pop-Eye the Sailorman.

    • Lois: He is the Nietzschean fantasy ideal all wrapped up in a red cape. The Superman.

      Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-10-15 – 1900-08-25) was a German philosopher. One of the concepts in his philosophy is the Übermensch, which is frequently translated to Superman.

    • Batman

      When Martha Kent says "I don't want anyone thinking you're like that nut in Gotham City" she is obviously referring to Batman.
