* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Fictional character version - [[spoiler:Dan Turpin]]'s funeral is attended by Jack Kirby characters such as the Franchise/FantasticFour in their civilian identities; sadly, later versions of the episode remove these characters to avoid lawsuits. [[WordOfGod Bruce Timm admitted]] that Dan Turpin was modeled on JackKirby himself.

Since Superman does not quite have the enormous A-list RoguesGallery that Batman has, the creators chose to largely dispense with the stand-alone format of the previous series, instead focusing on three concurrent {{Myth Arc}}s:

** Despite the show's version of {{Supergirl}} being a loose adaptation of Kara Zor-El, the then-current Supergirl, Linda Danvers, wore the costume of ''STAS'' Supergirl for the rest of her tenure.

** In an example mixed with a TakeThat, another episode has {{Supergirl}} reading a comic book about a [[ComicBook/SpiderMan spider-themed superhero]] before disgustedly stating that the character is gross.

Since Superman does not quite have the enormous A-list RoguesGallery that Batman has, the creators chose to largely dispense with the stand-alone format of the previous series, instead focusing on three [[MythArc Myth Arcs]]:

* The first arc of the series concerned ComicBook/LexLuthor, the most powerful man in Metropolis before Superman's arrival. The CorruptCorporateExecutive version of the character from the ComicBook/PostCrisis Franchise/DCUniverse, he is ever the MagnificentBastard. With heavy doses of the VillainWithGoodPublicity, he immediately sees the man flying around righting wrongs as a threat and he begins a number of plots to either destroy Superman or [[WeCanRuleTogether get him on his side]]. These attempts include utilizing an [[KryptoniteFactor unusual rock from space that seems to give Superman a hard time]], [[CloningBlues cloning]] Superman (resulting in [[CloneDegeneration a creature that could only be described as ''Bizarro'']]) and [[WeCanRebuildHim recreating a foreign mercenary as an android assassin]]... all in just in the first season.
* The second arc concerned the character of ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}. [[RetCanon His origin was rewritten for the series]], tying his origin far more closely with that of Superman. Here he is the [[DeusEstMachina computer system]] responsible for the upkeep of the entire planet of Krypton and he darn well knows in the pilot episode that the planet is doomed. However, he does not want the people to know because he is too busy making provisions to save himself. After the planet explodes he becomes an [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal]] [[PlanetLooters Planet Looter]], determined to repeat Krypton's fate ad infinitum: collect all the data in the universe, then destroy the originals to keep his collected info from becoming obsolete. His quest brings him into conflict with Superman a number of times--though, in practice, most of his schemes just involve him trying to rebuild himself after the last time Superman destroyed him. Again, and again, and again...

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: In their first meeting, Batman judo-flips Superman across the room. The look of shock on Superman's face is priceless.
