* PuppeteerParasite: Brainiac resorts to taking over Luthor's body. Also deconstructed, because while it works fine while Luthor's alive, when Lana kills him, eventually [[RealityEnsues rigor mortis sets in]] and Brainiac shuts down after ejecting from Luthor's body.

** Bizarro, strangely enough, has never been more [[NotSoHarmlessVillain terrifying]] ''or'' more pitiable than he has here. In his desperate quest to become superman's "perfect imperfect duplicate", destroys his own planet, comes to Earth as an adult, and finally, because [[InsaneTrollLogic Superman is]] ''[[InsaneTrollLogic alive]]'', kills himself with blue kryptonite. His last words are [[TearJerker "Hello, Superman, hello."]]

* AlasPoorVillain: Most of them, in fact.
** Lex Luthor spends most of the story in [[MindRape complete]] [[AndIMustScream agony]] and finally [[ICannotSelfTerminate begs Lana to kill him]], which she does.
** Brainiac spends his final moments reduced to [[HowTheMightyHaveFallen a pathetic crab-like little creature]] who can't even get close enough to ''touch'' Superman as rigor mortis sets in on Luthor's corpse. Even after detaching itself, all it can do is drag itself a few feet before collapsing and shutting down.

Then came the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', a mega-event that reset the continuity of every DC title. Thus began the modern, Creator/JohnByrne era of Superman which strove to be more "realistic". Realizing that Silver Age Superman deserved a grand finale, editor Julius Schwartz hired Creator/AlanMoore, and Superman ur-artist Curt Swan. The first issue was inked by none other than Creator/GeorgePerez and the second issue was inked by Kurt Schaffenberger (who was also best known for defining the look of ComicBook/LoisLane, and his work on ''{{Shazam}}'' and the Captain Marvel Family tales), and made the last Silver Age tale -- an "imaginary story." Published in September, 1986. For Moore, a lifelong Superman fan, specifically the Silver Age Superman, this story was the "final" Superman story. For many writers, it's one of the greatest Superman stories ever written with Neil Gaiman claiming that the opening is the greatest triple entendre in comics and a goodbye to a Superman that existed in Moore's heart.
