* KneelBeforeZod: Surprisingly averted. At no point in the movie does Zod command anyone (not even Kal-El) to kneel before him. Funnily enough, Superman indeed involuntarily falls to his knees when brought before Zod on the Black Zero ship (but only due to its unfamiliar atmosphere).

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] given that Zod had previously admitted to murdering his Kryptonian father. Upon subsequently witnessing him attack his mother, it naturally follows that he felt [[HeroicResolve all the more resolved to insure that Zod didn't take away any more people close to him]].

* CivvieSpandex His suit seems to be some sort of Kryptonian formal wear, either a scout uniform or, considering the ceremonial cape, some kind of diplomatic dress. The "S" symbol is the House of El crest standing for "hope." He wears it unaltered throughout the film. * ClarkKenting: Par for the course in the Superman mythos, being the TropeNamer. Clark is shown disguising himself with nothing but a pair of glasses, as he joins the crew at the ''Daily Planet'' in the conclusion to ''Man Of Steel''. ''Dawn Of Justice'' [[JustifiedTrope makes this more convincing]] by showing Clark with a different posture and demeanor and having him wearing loose-fitting clothing to hide his HeroicBuild.

* GeniusBruiser: Closer to his comics counterpart, this Clark is established as being quite intelligent, knowing how to treat wounds, maintaining a high degree of control over his powers, being a pretty good tactician, and being knowledgeable about science and a fan of the classical greek philosophers. He may have been the first "genetic roll of the dice" in the Krpytonian civilization in centuries, but those "dice" (Jor-El and Lara Lor-van) were loaded towards intellectualism to begin with. Also, like in the comics he eventually chooses a civilian career where his powers give him no special advantage over anyone else (well, typing at super-speed ''does'' help with the deadlines).

* LightningBruiser[=/=]JackOfAllStats: He's not as brutally fast as Faora, but holds his own quite well against her and Nam-Ek since he has the advantage of flight. And in the climactic battle with Zod, he flies fast and hits ''hard''.

* CanonForeigner: Doesn't exist in the comics. However, he could be: ** {{Expy}}: One for General Sam Lane (Lois' father), who has a prominent role in one of this film's sources, ''ComicBook/SupermanSecretOrigin''. It can be said that Swanwick is basically Sam Lane with a RaceLift, his family ties to Lois Lane removed, and being more reasonable.

* ClarkKenting: Par for the course in the Superman mythos, being the TropeNamer. [[spoiler:Clark is shown disguising himself with nothing but a pair of glasses, as he joins the crew at the ''Daily Planet'' in the film's conclusion. For this movie, both Clark and Superman are the "real person" wearing different clothes, neither being a disguise. The issue of a disguise persona isn't dealt with until the end. It probably helps that no one at the ''Planet'', apart from Lois, has ever seen him up close, and he spent the last several years keeping a low profile, jumping from odd job to odd job in places of low population and changing his name frequently]].

* UnskilledButStrong: Played with. He's only unskilled in that he isn't a trained warrior compared to the ''very well-trained'' elite Kryptonian soldiers he has to face off with for his ''first'' real outing. Note, for the brief time they were on Earth, Zod manages to overcome his PowerIncontinence and need for a breather apparatus, and Faora manages to outright ''master'' SuperSpeed on second contact. All of which took Clark much longer to hone, and even then, he's never had a chance to test himself to the limits. However, since he has been exposed to the yellow sun for 33 years, he was able to match them on raw power, but it became a problem when Zod caught up. ** It's also shown in the fight scenes that his style of hand-to-hand combat, while understandably not on par with the soldiers, is still more advanced that we've ever seen him display on screen where he often relies solely on his devastating power rather than technique.

** Its more well suited to say that he can't ultilize his speed in combat as good as Faora. Furthermore [[UnskilledButStrong he displays more raw power than any other Kryptonian]]. ** Because of his origin, Superman can be considered the JackOfAllStats for the entire Kryptonian race. He might not be an expert scientist like his father or a trained soldier like Zod, but in terms of adaptability and improvisation, Superman is unparalleled.
