* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0QVvbhMm24 this video]] from "The Main Man" Clark confesses his secret identity using a shield of sarcasm to troll Lois. Fair enough, but he uses the phrase "pretend to be a journalist." Huh? Clark ''is'' a journalist. He went to school and earned his credentials. Bending the rules with Superman powers once in awhile doesn't mean he's a complete fake, does it?

** That was part of the trolling and sarcasm.

** Why does it work against Electro? DCAU Livewire probably isn't an electric "elemental" like most versions; rather she likely still has to conduct the electricity through her own body. Water probably interferes with her ability to do so. In essence her entire body is an electrical appliance.

* Why is High Wire vulnerable to water? Water is one of the best conductors of electricity, like metal is, she can use water to transport herself as she use metal. I know that electricity cause short circuits to electrical appliances, but she is not one, the reason why electrical appliances are vulnerable to water is because water is an electrical conductor, not the other way around.

***** Actually it glows when The Joker discovers it's Kryptonite. Prior to that, the statue was portrayed as not glowing. The small pieces of the statue left behind were glowing a tiny bit but overall the statue appeared to be jade. It's a very curious property of Kryptonite that it doesn't start to actually glow until it's being used/acknowledged as Kryptonite. Happens on {{Smallville}} all the time.

*** Besides, you know, if his plan was successful, he could sell the first half too - AFTER he used it to kill Superman. Superman's death wouldn't turn Kryptonite into lead after all.

** Maybe rather than specifically tracking it down the Joker just happened to hear about 'that green dragon statue whose every owner died before his time' and thought 'Hmmm, there is some kind of green alien rock that's lethal to that Superman guy. What if it also kills humans - it's just since he is Super-man it kills him Super-quickly?' And once he had the Dragon he could carry a chemical analysis to make sure it's indeed no ordinary jade.

** A high-quality photograph (which this one probably is, given that it was one Jimmy Olsen took with his professional equipment as part of his job) could easily contain fine details inaccessible to normal human vision but readily apparent to Superman.

As for how his vision works, he has both telescopic and microscopic vision; the latter would be the relevant one in this situation.
