* TheMerch: InUniverse, Bibbo comes across a man selling the "Death of Superman" issue of the ''Daily Planet'' along with a black armband. Outraged at someone profiting off his dead friend, Bibbo yells at him and buys every copy so he's out of business. When the man explains that he lost his job in the Doomsday disaster, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Bibbo calms down and offers him a job]].
*** And can't forget GBS, Lex Jr., and Rex Leech treating Superboy like a piece of property to be acquired. Leech also gets a trademark on the "S" shield logo.

* IOweYouMyLife: John Henry Irons' life was saved by Superman, who told him to "make it a life worth saving". Becoming the "Man of Steel" was his way of doing just that.

* BatmanGrabsAGun: The real Superman comes back armed with GunsAkimbo. Justified, in that he's depowered and needs help. He still maintains a ThouShaltNotKill and uses the guns only on robotic enemies.

* BruceWayneHeldHostage: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Metropolis goes searching for Clark Kent, not knowing that, because Superman died, Clark died. Clark's {{Secret Keeper}}s (his adoptive parents, Lana Lang, and Lois) resolve to not tell the world his secret, and Metropolis just assumes that Clark was one of the several hundred people killed in Doomsday's rampage. Superman later resolves this issue by having him rescue [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Matrix]]-shapeshifted-as-Clark (complete with that awful mullet), so that Metropolis assumes that Clark was [[VoodooShark just buried underneath the rubble for months. It helped that he wasn't the only Metropolis citizen who was trapped under the rubble, lending credibility to his alibi]].
