----** There's literally no way to tell. But if we work on the fairly reasonable assumption that the older Mr. Schott was convicted some twenty years prior to the episode, then if Mannheim was in his 30s at the time of the factory's construction, he'd be in his 50s at the time of this episode. Many people change very little in appearance during that period; Vincent Price, Michael York and Dick Clark come immediately to mind. And remember that this show used a very simple, very basic art style, which makes ages difficult to judge.

** Water's excellent conductivity is exactly the problem: she has trouble holding herself together against her tendency when soaked to dissipate in every direction at once.

Another [[IgnoredExpert Jor-El]] question: his plan was to put all of the Kryptonians in the PhantomZone: this poses two questions:

** As we later see you can pick and choose who you release from the zone. Also in the zone they all exist as phantoms with no real physical form, so they can't be harmed. The council just didn't like the idea of being put in the same place as criminals even for a few hours to save themselves.

Finally, even if they could affect each other, the Phantom Zone criminals are only a minuscule fraction of the planetary population.

*** 1b. Besides encryption and other computer security, Bruce presumably doesn't keep his Batman-related stuff in Waynetech systems if he can help it, and in cases where he can't help it (e.g. using Waynetech resources to build his Bat-gear) he disguises everything as normal corporate R&D to the point that not even Brainiac connected those dots.

*** Except as I noted, this goes against the show's established pattern of explaining how the villains return, in particular for Superman's rogues who are powerful & dangerous enough that when they break out, Superman and the SCU are at the ready. Intergang was disbanded by that point in the series so it couldn't have been them. There probably isn't a worthwhile explanation since BruceTimm called "Superman's Pal" one of the worst eps in the DCAU.

* How old is Toyman in this show. He looks like he's in his 20s and 30s. Shouldn't Bruno Mannheim be in his 60s if Toyman was a kid when his dad was set up by the gangster?

* In World's Finest, Batman practically threatens Superman, holding a small Kryptonite fragment near him and saying something along the lines of "It doesn't take a lot, does it?". Then he... hands its over to Superman by leaving it there. Um, what!? Why would Batman let go of the only piece of Kryptonite he has for no reason!? That sounds like a rather foolish and out of character thing to do for the master of preparation. You would expect him to hold onto it so that he has a way of fighting back in case Superman ever goes rogue (which ends up happening in Legacy), or the Earth gets attacked by evil Kryptonians (which had already happening in Blasts from the Past, and came close to happening again later). I know he was there to warn Superman about the Joker being after him and having Kryptonite in his hands, but that doesn't mean that he had to hand over his piece of Kryptonite, or even let Superman know that he had it.

** Not quite. Disregarding the fact that Superman acts to some degree with official endorsement from the authorities, technically he is the equivalent of a normal man making an escaping thief fall or doing a citizen arrest, which is perfectly legal. Batman on the other hand does things that are illegal and are only allowed to authorities like tapping phones, entering private properties and using violence. Yes, he never kills and he does delivers the criminals to the authorities for further process, but everything else is mostly illegal for a civilian.
