** The final story of the one-shot issue ''The Legacy of Superman'' which came out in between the "Death" and "Funeral" chapters, seems to drop hints of Superman's eventual revival; said story features Waverider one of the time travellers known as the Linear Men, who intends to alter time and prevent Kal-El's death, only to be talked out of it by Matt Ryder, another member of the group:
-->'''Waverider:'''(as events take their natural course and Superman dies) Enough. I can watch no longer.
-->'''Matt Ryder:''' Welcome to the curse of being a Linear Man, Waverider. The blessing, though, is that we already know what tomorrow will bring.

** Played straight a little later in the story when Doomsday, imitating a commercial he saw for a pro wrestling event at Metropolis, raids a construction site:
--> '''Doomsday:''' MUH-TRP-PLIS!
--> '''Construction worker:''' Metropolis? It said Metropolis! It said--*neck snap*

In this story, a monster named [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Doomsday]] comes out of nowhere and thrashes both Superman AND the ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational. When it attacks Metropolis, Superman must [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech unleash all of his hidden power]] to stop it, killing Doomsday but also getting mortally wounded in the process (they were fighting at night, though, when Supes was weakest and most deprived of sunlight). He dies in ComicBook/LoisLane's arms, and his ragged cape ended up hung on a pole as a sort of tragic flag in what's possibly the most effective visual ever seen in comic book history.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After [[spoiler:Cyborg Superman tosses him into space]], Doomsday wakes up and starts laughing. This plot twist has no impact on the remainder of the story... not until several years later, in ''Superman[=/=]Doomsday: Hunter[=/=]Prey''.

** Superman had that problem with Maxima, as well. However, this was because she wouldn't bother to stop, aim and realize what was around her.
