* DuelingMovies: With 2010's ''Film/KickAss'', which had a similar premise of dark, realistic superheroics. ''Super'' is even darker and more [[RealityEnsues grounded in reality]]. Both MarkMillar and Gunn are friends in real life, with the former defending the latter's work when accusations of copying came up (both films were developed around the same time independently of one another). Millar even screened ''Super'' at his own Kapow! comic convention in London. There's a third movie to factor into this with ''Film/{{Defendor}}'', which played at festivals before either film came out. ''Film/{{Super}}'' could be considered half-way between ''Film/KickAss'' and ''Film/{{Defendor}}'', or maybe even more similar to the latter in many aspects.

* PlayingAgainstType: One of the reasons why Ellen Page took on the film was because she was tired of getting typecast in ''Juno''-type roles.
