* FiveEpisodePilot: "The Last Son of Krypton"

to:

* FiveEpisodePilot: "The Last Son of Krypton"Krypton" took place over three:
** Part One portrayed the last days of Krypton, ending with baby Kal-El being launched into space to escape the planet's destruction.
** Part Two shows how Kal was adopted by the Kents and grew up in Smallville, as well as how he discovered his heritage and came to terms with his powers.
** Part Three cuts ahead a few years to Clark Kent signing on with the Daily Planet, and showcases him as Superman in costume for the first time, as well as marking the first appearance of Lex Luthor (although in this instance his role was very small). In the final moments, [[SequelHook Brainiac's satellite is found by extraterrestrials in space, and he seizes control of their ship]]...

** Lois actually has a very varied wardrobe of different styles of clothing (Shorts, skirts, dresses, gowns, etc.) and Clark mixed his wardrobe up on occasion. It is mentioned on the commentary of "The World's Finest" that the creators tried very hard at averting this trope, but were limited by budget constraints, so instead of getting different outfits they would just change the color of their regular clothes to give them several different combinations

* LittleNo: When Mala hears of Krypton's destruction, a shocked, mournful "No..." is the only response she can muster.

* VillainessesWantHeroes: Maxima and later Mala to Superman. And then she Maxima met [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Lobo]].Lobo]].
* VillainHasAPoint: Luthor's rant in "Blasts from the Past" about how Superman should send Mala back to the Phantom Zone for Earth's sake. Her actions and those of her partner-in-crime, then and since, only served to vindicate his attitude entirely.

As befitting a Franchise/{{DCAU}} production, the voice work is absolutely top notch. Creator/TimDaly plays both halves of the title character with authority and distinction. Dana Delany gives us an utterly no-nonsense ComicBook/LoisLane who absolutely will not tolerate babysitting the newcomer from Kansas, and is skeptical about the man in the red cape flying around doing good deeds. Ultimately, Creator/ClancyBrown is the perfect ComicBook/LexLuthor, smooth and cruel, slimy and utterly charming at the same time.

** The Cthulhoid Karkull. He and his shoggoth minions were pretty much straight out of a [[CthulhuMythos Lovecraft story]] and compare quite blatantly to Nyarlathotep.

* AGodAmI: Darkseid has something of an ego -- a [[PhysicalGod completely justified]] ego -- and rules over Apokolips by asserting his own godhood. Even when he is physically defeated [[DoWithHimAsYouWill and thrown down to the clutches of his oppressed slaves]], he points out, as they gently tend to his wounds and carry him away on their shoulders, he ''cannot'' be beaten since, as he says: "I am many things, Kal-El, but here, I am God."

* AdaptationalWimp[=/=]{{Nerf}}: A very, very downplayed example with Titanos; this version lacks the ability to shoot Kryptonite EyeBeams he had in the comic, but he still manages to be strong enough to be a match for Superman.

** Superman's power level was noticeably lowered by comparison with the comics and most incarnations in order to keep his opponent viable threats.
