** Conduit, due to being an EvilFormerFriend of Clark, who could have been a recurring enemy with a personal history. But then gets killed after his single appearance

** The third Post-Crisis Zod, the dictator of Pokolistan. He could have easily been the Doctor Doom of the DC Universe, but ends up getting killed at the end of the storyline. Another possibility is this Zod could have been the second Post-Crisis Zod.

* AndTheFandomRejoiced: This seems to be the reaction, given all the news coverage, to the announcement that the iconic red trunks will be making a permanent comeback as of Action Comics #1000.

** With almost every other DC Comics fandom! Especially ComicBook/{{Shazam}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and, for the less militant of the fandom, Comicbook/{{Batman}} fans.

** Superman's post-''Action Comics'' #1000 costume, which effectively brings back the missing red trunks has gotten some contention because there have been fans who ''like'' the ''Superman Reborn'' costume and feel that the red trunks are now outdated, a vast 180 from its disappearance on the New 52 costume.

** In ''ActionComics #275'', Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} dreams that Superman never turned up and she lived her cousin's life. In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', written 37 years after, Superman never turned up and Supergirl was world's greatest hero... because [[spoiler:Lex Luthor found Kal-El's rocket and murdered the baby]].

** The "T-shirt and jeans" look in GrantMorrisonsActionComics was at first well-received, mostly because it was used in Superman's new origin story and was only temporary. By the time ''ComicBook/SupermanTruth'' hit the shelves, however, such outfit had outstayed its welcome with the readers.

** ''ComicBook/SupermanGrounded'', JMichaelStraczynski's half-aborted run on the main title which involved Superman [[WalkingTheEarth walking across America]] "to rediscover the country" was so critically derided that it was called the worst comic of the year.

-->''While it would take them a while to finally acquire [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], they got something more important out of it than the character. They got Otto Binder, the writer of those classic Captain Marvel Adventures stories, who would go on to be the definitive Franchise/{{Superman}} writer of the ’50s, and certainly one of the most influential of all time. His tenure at DC saw the creation of some of the most popular elements of Superman, the stuff that’s still in use today. Supergirl, Kandor, Bizarro, the Legion, the concept of the out-of-continuity “imaginary story,” — those are Binder stories. He didn’t create Jimmy Olsen (Jimmy, the Harley Quinn of his day, was an import from the radio show), but he certainly defined his character and with it, the feel of the Silver Age. And he did it by just continuing the style he and CC Beck had been honing on CMA...The irony of DC suing Captain Marvel [[LostInImitation because he was too similar to Superman, and then hiring a writer to make Superman more like Captain Marvel is staggering]].''

* OlderThanTheyThink: Fans who resent Superman losing his "Last of his kind" status blame it on ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} and the Silver Age, but other Kryptonian survivors showed up for first time in Golden Age story ''Superman'' #65 (July, 1950).
