Added DiffLines:

** The scene where Superman's with Lana and the warped kryptonite begins to affect him. Take the fear a woman can feel at realizing she's alone with a man she doesn't really know and multiply it by, oh, a ''million'' or so. Nothing happens, but it's still probably the most effective and disturbing Evil Superman moment in the movie.

Added DiffLines:

** Ross Webster was Lex Luthor's replacement as a CorruptCorporateExecutive instead of MadScientist. Post-Crisis Lex becomes one himself.

** Well, this troper did not remeberer Lana that much after seeing this movie for the first time...But rather her son. It's probably because she did not have mythic scenes such as [[Film/SupermanTheMovie "Can you read my mind?" sequence, the earth course reversal to save her life]] or Superman [[SupermanII giving up his powers for love]], like Lois had.



*** Once again, this troper have fonder memories of Margot Kidder. Her absence is explained here by the actress's bipolar disorder, rather than the character being "bad". At least she is a more likable Lois than [[SupermanReturns Kate Bosworth]] or [[ManOfSteel Amy Adams]].

**Due to the overuse of BewareTheSuperman years after with the man of steel himself or expies in the comics, the potential been explored intensively since then.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The scene where the two traffic sign 'walk' and 'don't walk' figures fight each other. It's weird, bizarre, and nonsensical even in this context, and isn't mentioned again.

* NightmareFuel: It [[SpecialEffectsFailure looks silly years after]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuSsSwg9MXs&feature=related but a certain scene in the climax]] was certainly this. People who haven't seen the movie may even be familiar with it. If you don't want to click the link: [[spoiler: the computer the villains built turns against them, and as they flee, it catches Vera. It ''pulls her inside its workings and turns her into a robot'']]. This scene likely scared more children than any other scene in the entire series, not helped by the fact that it's easy to miss that [[spoiler: she returns to normal once the computer is destroyed]].
** What helped sell it is that [[spoiler: she's still ''screaming incoherently'' as electrified mechanical devices are ''attached to her skin at high speeds''.]]

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Despite how incredibly stupid the film is the late ChristopherReeve still gives a sincere performance as Superman, both good and bad - which just makes the wasted plot even more offensive.
