* In Issue #3 of ''Superman: American Alien'' Deathstroke tries to assassinate Bruce Wayne. He ends up mistaking [[NighInvulnerable Clark Kent]] for [[BadassNormal Bruce Wayne]]. The results are HILARIOUS, with Deathstroke giving Clark a neurotoxin that would kill a normal person that ended up just making Clark acting like a goofy drunk, bent his sword into a mess trying to slice Clark in half, had Clark break the sword in half while proclaiming "Ta-dah! Sard borken" before flicking Deathstroke and sending up flying off of the cruise liner he was on.

* Superman guest-starring on ''ILoveLucy.'' 'Nuff said.

** There's a bit of overlap with Awesome there; the writers managed to pull off the story so that there was no illusion broken for the younger viewers. It wasn't George Reeves guest starring, SUPERMAN was hanging out with Lucy and Ricky.

* In Issue #5 of ''Superman: American Alien'', in the early days of his career the hero-that-will-be-called-Superman attempts to give a scary Batman-like threat to a bunch of criminals he's just apprehended about how the underworld should watch out for him from now on. He's not very good at it:
-->'''Clark:''' Okay guys... Don't do crimes. Don't do crimes, or... I'll fly down from the sky and getcha. Next time -- ''Wham! Pow!'' Um... Tell your friends I said that. ''[Flies off]''

!!Film
* In the first Christopher Reeve film, Superman is being interviewed by Lois Lane on her apartment balcony. Regarding his x-ray vision, she jokingly asks what color underwear she's wearing, only for him to reply that he can't tell because the planters she happens to be standing behind apparently have a high lead content. This was forgotten for a few moments, but after she walks away for a moment, he suddenly informs her that her underwear is pink. She immediately steps back behind the planters... but also shyly asks if he likes pink.
* Superman has just broken into Luthor's underground lair.
--> '''Lex Luthor''': Otis, take the gentleman's cape.
--> [''Otis approaches Superman, who glares at him'']
--> '''Otis''': I don't think he wants me to, Mr. Luthor.
** Also Hackman's cavalier, ad-libbed "Come in, it's open" just before.
* "Otisburg? ''Otisburg?'' '''''OTISBURG?!?!?!'''''"
** "Ms. Teschmacher has a place of her own. It's a little bitty place." (Perhaps [[EverytownAmerica Otisburg is like Smallville]].)
** What sells the scene is the fact that the "S" in "Otisburg" is written backwards.
* "Something wrong with the elevator?"
* When Superman shows up during his opening night to save Air Force One when an engine blows out. The pilot's expression as he looks out the window, sees a guy in a cape holding up the wing, and tells the rest of the crew "Just fly. We got... something... I ain't saying what, just... trust me."
** In fact, a lot of the reactions people have when Clark suits up for the first time:
-->'''Pimp''': Say Jim, that is a BAD outfit! ''(Supes flies off)'' Whoa!
-->'''Desk Sergeant''' (finding a boat loaded with tied-up robbers on his doorstep with a caped hero flying into the night): First drink's on me, lemme go get my hat...
* When he interupts the crooks on the boat, one of them comes up behind and hits him in the back with a crowbar, only to end up standing there as it vibrates in his hands.
-->'''Superman:''' Bad vibrations?
* The scene in the original film where Luthor explains to Superman that he'll never stop both missiles, because one's aimed at Hackensack and the other at the San Andreas Fault:
--> '''Miss Tessmacher''': But Lex, my mother lives in Hackensack!
--> '''Lex Luthor''': *checks his wristwatch, looks back up at her and shakes his head 'no'*
* An earlier exchange between them:
--> '''Luthor''': Miss Tessmacher, when I was six years old, my father said to meó
--> '''Miss Tessmacher''': "GetOut!"
--> '''Luthor''': ''(cheerfully)'' Ha ha. Before that.
** ''SupermanReturns'' [[MythologyGag plays with that scene when Miss Kowalski says Tessmacher's line once again to Lex.]]
*** As well as another similar bit that was [[MemeticMutation rather well received by the fanbase.]]
---> '''Lex Luthor:''' Come on, let me hear you say it, just once, come on.
---> '''Lois Lane:''' YoureInsane
---> '''Lex Luthor:''' No. Ha ha. Not that, no, the other thing. I know it's just dangling off the tip of your tongue, let me hear it just once, please?
---> '''Lois Lane''': Superman will-
---> '''Lex Luthor''': '''''[[BigWordShout WRONG!!!]]'''''
* Superman attempting his classic costume change in a phone booth, only to find it's just a phone on a post. It can be pretty weird to realize the concept was being mocked as early as 1978.
* From the helicopter rescue, this absolutely ''classic'' exchange:
-->'''Superman''': Easy, miss - I've got you.
-->'''Lois''': You - you've got me ... (looks down) ''WHO'S GOT YOU''?!?!?

* In the {{New 52}}, when Superman is first captured and studied by the military, they think he's a shapeshifter whose true form looks like a 5-legged goat creature. A flashback in a later issue reveals that the "alien" corpse they obtained was [[spoiler: a malformed stillborn goat the Kents had passed off as an alien corpse after discovering baby Kal-El, bribing the soldiers investigating the crash with the body so they could leave the area undisturbed with the normal-looking humanoid infant that was readily accepted as their son]].
* The Pax Galactica, an ancient group of space warriors, declare Superman their leader after he defeats their mortal foe, the Lexus. Superman's first order of business.

* A darkly funny moment from ''Batman/Superman'' #21, part of the ''ComicBook/SupermanTruth'' storyline: Clark's found himself reduced down to around his Golden Age power level, and his secret identity's been revealed to the world. While investigating a case, he finds a lead to Gotham, and decides to check in on Bruce. What he doesn't know, however, is that Bruce has disappeared, replaced by a new Batman in PoweredArmor...
-->'''Clark:''' [narrating] But if the threat's really coming from Gotham, I can talk to Bruce. I should have gone to him earlier, anyway. He'll help me figure this out...
-->[''[[DescriptionCut cut]] to Clark getting the stuffing pounded out of him by the new Batman'']
-->'''Clark:''' [narrating] Unless, of course, he's been replaced by a ''giant robot''.

* In the ''very first'' Superman adventure, Supes is trying to see the governor, and since he's just starting out, no one is willing to let this weird guy in tights in the house. Superman is forced to break down several doors on his way up, and finds that the last door is not only locked, but made of steel. The governor's butler dares Superman to knock that one down, which Supes does quite easily.
-->'''Superman:''' ''(To the shocked butler)'' It was '''your''' idea!
