** Rather obviously, it becomes a CurseCutShort in ''Justice League Unlimited'', as Wonder Woman fires the weapon just before she can say "hell".

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Superman deals one to Mongul in a fit of rage. Of course, Mongul absorbs his punches like a steel wall, but still.

* WhatAreYou: Asked verbatim by Batman of Mongul in the original. Mongul scoffs that if Bats doesn't know who he is, then he's not worthy of an introduction.

The [[Franchise/TheDCAU animated version]] removes the darker aspects of the original dream world and gives Superman a mostly idyllic life. In this adaptation, he is a Kryptonian farmer with his wife Loana (three guesses as to which two characters she's an amalgamation of -- her voice actress is the same as ComicBook/LoisLane's, to boot), his son Van-El, and [[ComicBook/KryptoTheSuperdog a pet dog named Krypto]]. Jor-El appears as a contented, doting grandfather (who is somewhat dismissive of Kal-El's farming lifestyle), and his bitterness at his false prediction is reduced to a single line about how his reputation took years to salvage. Brainiac even appears as [[AIIsACrapshoot a dutiful household A.I.]] The only clues something is amiss are a constant stream of random earthquakes and Jor-El's voice continually changing. Jason Todd is also absent from this adaptation; Batman instead escapes from the Mercy's dream with Wonder Woman's help, and Wonder Woman is the one who puts the plant on Mongul.

The story works around the idea of TheFinalTemptation: Superman's mind is trapped in an illusion [[HappilyEverAfter of him living a happy life]] on an intact [[DoomedHometown Krypton]]. In the illusion, he's married to a former actress and has a large, loving family. However, Krypton is shown to have changed since the time it would have been destroyed, turning from the [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas idyllic representations]] in the {{Canon}} to [[TheEighties a dystopia teetering on social collapse]]. Amongst other things, Kara is in the hospital after being assaulted by a anti-PhantomZone protester. Further compounding the problem is Kal-El's estrangement from his father, [[IgnoredExpert Jor-El]]; while the latter was often portrayed as a heroic visionary in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, this Jor-El is a bitter shell who turned to [[StrawCharacter radical reactionary politics]] after [[CryingWolf wrongly predicting]] Krypton's self-destruction (his wife [[MissingMom dying]] of cancer might have something to do with it, too).
