* WeirdCrossover:
** Even before Creator/WarnerBrothers absorbed Creator/DCComics, [=DC=] had the license to print Characters/LooneyTunes comics. In 2000, [=DC=] launched the four-issue series ''Franchise/{{Superman}} and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'' wherein the wacky Dodo bird (from ''WesternAnimation/PorkyInWackyland'') meets Mxyzptlk, and they form a partnership to wreak havoc on both universes.
** And let's not even get started on the oddity that is ''[[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Superman_Meets_the_Quik_Bunny_Vol_1_1 Superman Meets the Quik Bunny]]''.

** At least once, he [[WouldHitAGirl bound and gagged a woman]] whom he identified as a murderer; he kept her bound while he persuaded the governor to halt the execution of the other woman, who was wrongfully convicted of the same murder mere seconds before she was to be executed. (Later on, female villains always realized defeat before being confronted, or other females would deal with the villain.)

* MysteriousProtector: In the original ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'' miniseries, Clark was this til he was forced to save the space plane in front of a huge crowd. In ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', Wonder Woman commented that Superman could have chosen to remain behind the scenes and do his superheroing in secret but chose to be as obvious as possible. In ''ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark'', he's doing just that, staying out of the way of the New52 Superman but still performing feats of bravery invisibly.

** One can usually spot CharacterDerailment if the writer thinks Superman is all about his powers, and when he loses them, he's either pathetic or {{Wangst}}y. [[invoked]]

* AmbiguouslyJewish: Superman's background story is a pastiche of [[MosesInTheBullrushes Moses]] and the immigrant Jewish experience, with a bit of TakeThat towards the Nazi idea of the Ubermensch.

** Of course, since the BronzeAge (specifically the story "Must There Be a Superman?"), Superman has been very concerned about inadvertently making humanity too dependent on him by solving too many of our problems for us. This concern might apply to introducing super tech as much as it does to his super power feats.
