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."

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: It is Superman, so one has to expect an elastic relationship with the laws of physics, but ''anything'' being strong enough to '''push a spaceship out of a black hole's gravity well''' is pretty hard to swallow.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: In "Legacy Pt. 2" [[spoiler:after Superman overcomes his [[{{Brainwashed}} brainwashing]], he opens a boomtube to Apokolips, vaporizes the army sent to meet him, electrocutes Granny Goodness, knocks the TerribleTrio through a building, swats away [[TheBrute Kalibak]] without a second thought, and burns Darkseid's face and eyes.]]

* 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.

* DistressedDamsel: Lois Lane is the traditional damsel, frequently being rescued by Superman, but the trope is discussed in the episode "Target." Despite a madman consistently attempting to murder her she remains unconcerned and defiant, continuing her own investigation against the advice of others. She points out that she remains in control of her life despite the danger she is in and, even if she needs Superman to physically save her, [[WillNotBeAVictim she will never]] ''[[WillNotBeAVictim let]]'' [[WillNotBeAVictim herself become a damsel]].
