** 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.

** Also, the rocket wasn't designed to fly with her and Kal-El, just Kal. Jor-El would have had to do some super fast last minute adjustments, and with planet collapse imminent, there would be no time to double check to make sure the rocket would stay on course and keep two passengers alive instead of two. Staying with Jor-El probably maximized Kal's chances of surviving (at least the initial) trip off his planet.

* In "World's Finest", Superman tells Batman that he doesn't like vigilantes in his town. Wait...what? Isn't Superman a vigilante as well? I don't see a badge on Superman's chest.

** I think he meant "pretending to be nothing more than an ordinary journalist", and the rest was just implied.

* Also from Legacy, why didn't Superman delay his raid on Apokolips so that he could oversee Supergirl's whole operation? Given Hamilton's reluctance and newfound distrust, Supes had no guarantee that he keep it up throughout the end. And then there was the risk of the government showing up and stopping it or taking Supergirl, or STARS handing her over to the authorities.

* Is it just me or Luthor's behavior in A Fish Story makes no sense? Aquaman goes to Luthor on behalf of Atlantis to demand that he stops using the sea as testing grounds for explosives, so Luthor deals with the problem by capturing him. Um, what? Did he expect Atlantis to forget about Luthor and move on because he took away their king?

*** As stated above, people have no physical form in the Phantom Zone, so they can't harm each other.

Added DiffLines:

*** Luthor has a history of dirty dealings (for instance, the illegal weapon sale that led to his first run-in with Superman was apparently [[ButForMeItWasTuesday a bit of routine business for him]]). He'd be known as a player to the criminal underworld, even if nobody's been able to pin anything on him. The Joker could assume that Lex would be interested in a plan to get Supes out of his hair, so to speak.


Added DiffLines:

** Because that would put them at the nonexistent mercy of the criminals in the Phantom Zone.

* In World's Finest, why did Lois get so mad at Supes for leaving to stop some bank robbers at the beginning of the episode that she lost all interest in him? That was his job and was pretty much the only thing he could do; as Lois herself said, people might get hurt if he didn't stop them. Did she have PMS?
