* AmbiguouslyJewish: PlayedForLaughs. When Superman saves a boy who was about to plummet into the NiagaraFalls, a stereotypical [[AlterKocker old Brooklyn lady]] exclaims: "What a nice man! Of course he's Jewish!" This can also be seen as a ShoutOut to the character's creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who were Jewish.

* CanonImmigrant / RetCanon: It actually took the better part of thirty years for these versions of the evil Kryptonian characters to arrive in the comics. Zod, who appeared in several Silver Age comics, had turned into a clustered mess of a character with about four different versions of the character appearing between DC's 1985 ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths and 2005's ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis, so GeoffJohns made the decision to introduce the most memorable and iconic version of Zod - '' that of the film'' - into the DCU. Ursa, in the meantime, had a basis in the Pre-COIE comics - she was ''Faora'' (presumably [[AdaptationNameChange renamed]] to make a PunnyName for those that would get the joke) and was a Kryptonian murderess who hated men. However, much like Superman II's iconic Zod, she's more famous than any of the other Kryptonian villainesses, and she and Non joined Zod in the 'Last Son' story of Action Comics, before becoming one of the focuses of the 'New Krypton' storyarc.

An alternate cut of this film -- ''Superman II - The Richard Donner Cut'' -- was eventually released on DVD in 2006. While several scenes had to be reconstructed from incomplete materials (in one case, a 1978 ''screen test'' between Creator/ChristopherReeve and Margot Kidder was used), this cut is as close to Donner's vision of ''Superman II'' that anyone will ever see.
