** The kryptonite in the mountain was a weak copy of the real kryptonite he was stabbed with. Note in the first movie a chunk of green K the size of a baseball made him weak as a newborn kitten; if he flew anywhere near a mountain of that he'd likely drop dead instantly. Yet he was able to land on that kryptonite island with enough force to fracture the ground, and seemed strong enough that even Lex seemed to think the K copy wasn't working ... until Supes walked up to Lex WHO HAD A SHIV OF REAL GREEN K IN HIS POCKET and started to sweat/weaken. That was what depleted him enough to be brutalized and stabbed. Which does, however, raise the question of how he could lift it with that kryptonite shiv lodged in his back...

*** The machine was a major plot point in Superman II, which took place in the same continuity as this movie, so it makes no sense for it not to exist.

**** If it was the Richard Donner version, then he likely has no memory of it.

** Clark didn't "disappear" though. When he comes back, people are asking him how his trip was -- he left a cover story behind, an excuse to be gone for years at a time. Also, seriously, don't assume that everyone is paying ''that'' much attention to Clark Kent. He's a dorky nobody that, maybe, his small handful of friends wondered what he was up to for a few years before they continued what they were doing.

* No one notices Superman and Clark Kent disappeared and reappeared a few ''years'' later on the same day. No level of ClarkKenting would fool anyone at this point if they weren't dumb as a bag of hammers.

** It's explained that because Superman wasn't around to be the key witness, there wasn't enough evidence for a trial. Flimsy, perhaps, but that's the explanation in the movie.

* How does Luthor get parole? At all?! I'm not a legal expert, but I'm pretty sure trying to sink California ''with everyone in it'' is more than enough grounds to get "without the possibility for parole" to get tacked onto "life in prison". Moreover, he saw seen talking to General Zod, even helping him; that's treason.

Moreover, he saw seen talking to General Zod, even helping him; that's treason. Furthermore, this Luthor is supposed to be the same one that Gene Hackman played and that Hackman was proud of and boasted about the fact he was a ciriminal!

* Why does SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor seem content with just growing ugly rocky crap using the Kryptonian crystals? He does know they are much more than that, part of an alien supercomputer, but the moment that he finds that adding water results in said ugly rocky growths, he forgets about any further researching on what they can do.

**Suoerman never destroys the Fortress in the theatrical cut of II; that was a deleted scene added to some broadcast versions, but not in the theatrical cut.

* Which version of Superman II is this move a sequel of: the theatrical version, or the Ricard Donner Cut? If it's the former, why is the Fortress of Solitude intact after Supes destroyed it in the Superman II? If it's the latter, why does Jason exist after Superman rewinded time and undid the night he had sex with Lois?
