Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Sort of. [[spoiler:Superman manages to prove his point and show everyone that his way of thinking is better than the Elite's, but it took mass shock therapy where he ''scared'' them into realizing it. The display may well have caused nightmares in the witnesses for years to come.]]

** And during the final fight, [[spoiler: Superman uses his heat vision to cut out the abnormality in Black's brain that gave him his powers, echoing Black's pre-fight monologue in which Black promised to "cut out" the cancers plaguing the world. Except it's actually a bluff, Supes used his heat vision to give Black a concussion that temporarily disabled his powers]]

* WhatTheHellHero:
** At first Superman thinks the Elite are a little reckless but basically have their hearts in the right place... [[spoiler:until they demonstrate their solution for dealing with Atomic Skull. And then there's the way they choose to stop two nations at war.]]
** [[spoiler: Speaking of Atomic Skull, when debating about whether or not to kill him, a grieving son calls Superman out on letting him live, as his escape cost a few more lives]].

* {{Eagleland}}: Superman's usual slogan of Truth, Justice, and the American Way, but it takes on a different meaning depending on the context. Flavor 1 if Superman or someone sympathetic to him is saying it, but it takes on somewhat more unpleasant implications in the hands of a commenter weighing in on the debate about Superman and the Elite. Then Black takes the opportunity to sarcastically comment on the US Government and the "American military capitalist way" (ironically, because - as Black ''also'' points out - Superman's ThouShaltNotKill ethos is directly opposite to the philosophy of the US military when it comes to dealing with opposition). A major Type 2 shows up in the first half of the movie: in an interview, Professor Baxter warns the {{Straw C|haracter}}onservative talk show host about trusting the Elite by asking "What happens when they come after you?", to which the host replies "Why would they come after me? I'm an American! We're the good guys!" completely unironically.

* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler: The Elite kill Atomic Skull, a villain that Superman had previously spared and had just proven to be too powerful to imprison. The fact that Superman's no kill policy only cost more innocent lives is what influenced public interest.]]
