** This troper thinks the opposite: the truck driver was already bullying the patrons of the diner and he surely would have continued to do so [[spoiler: unless Superman had intervened. And notice that Superman touches the bully only ''once''; when he puts him on his tray of food on the counter. Superman dealt with the bullys behavior without any violence on his part.]]

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Miss Teschmacher just disappears after the visit to the Fortress of Solitude in ''Superman II''. And, if you are watching the original cut, where is Jor-El? It's pretty clear that the cost of Superman regaining his powers is that the essence of Jor-El contained in the crystals has to be sacrificed.

you are watching the original cut, where is Jor-El? It's pretty clear Jor-El after Superman regains his powers? Bear in mind that this only applies if you are watching the original cut; in the Donner cut, it's clearly stated that the cost of Superman regaining his powers is that the essence of Jor-El contained in the crystals has to be sacrificed.

** Superman regrets his decision to become a mortal after learning that General Zod has effortlessly conquered the world:
-->'''Clark Kent''': I have to go back.
-->'''Lois Lane''': You can't go back, there's no way now.
-->'''Clark Kent''': I have to. I've gotta try dammit, I've got to try something. Anything!
-->'''Lois Lane''': It's not your fault. You didn't know this was going to happen.
-->'''Clark Kent''': They knew. They tried to tell me. But, I didn't listen.

* ChekhovsGun: The molecular chamber which Superman uses to become mortal in order to fall in love with Lois, plays a crucial part in the climax when he's forced to enter it again after Luthor lets the cat out of the bag. [[spoiler:Fortunately, Superman manages to turn the tables on Zod and his mooks.]]

* KansasCityShuffle: Superman utilizes a heroic one in attempting to lure Zod and his mooks into the molecule chamber. Once Luthor spills the beans, he takes over, thinking he can operate the molecule chamber with the crystal, when Superman is apparently the only one who knows how to use the Kryptonian device, and this is the first any of the villains have heard about this.
-->'''Superman''': Try and get them all into this molecule chamber. It takes away their powers, see... and turns them into ordinary human beings. Now if you could... Shh, shh!
-->'''Lex Luthor''': General, don't go in there. It's a trap.
-->'''Superman''': Luthor, you poisonous snake!
-->'''Lex Luthor''': That's a molecule chamber. It makes people like you into people like me.
** Superman goes off into a chamber, where unbeknownst to the criminals, he is shielded from the radiation, and Zod believes he has the advantage over Superman, until the Man of Steel crushes a powerless Zod's hand, and the Kryptonian criminals each fall into the icy chasm below. The main twist was that Superman would pretend to be weakened inside the chamber, when he was actually shielded from the red solar rays which occurred outside of the chamber.
-->'''Lex Luthor''': He switched it, he did it to them! I mean, the lights were on out here... while he was safe in there!
-->[Superman nods and gives Luthor an OK sign]

* UselessWithoutPowers: While at his Fortress of Solitude, Superman gives up his superpowers so he can be with Lois Lane. When they return to civilization, he runs into a bully who beats him up badly. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRRFMrzTYpE here]].
-->'''Clark Kent:''' [To Lois] Maybe you ought to hire a bodyguard.
-->'''Lois:''' I don't want one. I want the man I fell in love with.
-->'''Clark:''' I know, Lois. I wish he were here.
