to:

%%* CloningBlues* CloningBlues: [[spoiler:The "revived" Superman turns out to actually be a clone, who ultimately goes off the deep end. Though whether this is due to being a clone or because of Luthor's own ineptitude is hard to really determine.]]

%%* CreepyDoll* CreepyDoll: Toyman's arsenal incorporates these, as is standard for the character.


Added DiffLines:

* TooCleverByHalf: All of Luthor's plans to handle [[spoiler:Clone!Superman]] are very smart on paper, but fail miserably in practice because of how badly Luthor underestimates the intelligence of the man he's dealing with.

* BloodierAndGorier / DarkerAndEdgier: The sheer graphicness of the violence in the movie along with Toyman's paedophilia seem to be an exercise in seeing how much the moviemakers could get away with now that the rating was PG-13.

* {{Dark Skinned Blond}}e: Mercy Graves.
** This, coupled with her role as Lex Luthor's [[TheDragon Dragon]], has the effect of making her look like an {{Expy}} of the similarly dark-skinned, platinum-blonde Mirage from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.

* SexyDiscretionShot:''Twice'' with Superman and Lois. One at the beginning when she arrives at his Fortress of Solitude after having a shower, both sharing a kiss, and their next scene together first showing a bed that looks like it has been used. The second one is near the end where they are at her apartment and he comes out of her shower.



* [[CloningBlues SuperCloning]]: One of the few times it was done successfully (i.e. not counting Bizarros and other screw ups). Generally, they have to wing it or fake it (like with ComicBook/{{Superboy}}.
* TakeThat: The giant robot spider is a ShoutOut to an infamous (never filmed) draft for a Superman movie.

** The above mention line about curing AIDS but deliberately stretching out the treatments is a reference to an early ComicBook/PostCrisis storyline. In the comics, Luthor came up with a cure for Lois's mother's unspecified illness, but manipulated the formula to require extended and unaffordable treatments to maintain leverage over Lois.

* WithholdingTheCure: Lex apparently figured out how to cure Bird Flu, [=AIDs=] and muscle dystrophy but is keeping it secret until he can make more money than the millions he would already get for selling it. Superman on the other hand is despairing that he cannot find the CureForCancer even with his advance Kryptonian tech.
