* 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 [[UnwillingRobotization 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''.]]
** The above nightmarish scene is ramped UpToEleven when the same thing [[spoiler:starts to happen to Superman himself not long after. If it wasn't for the beltric acid heating up at just the right time...]]
** 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.

* FridgeBrilliance: It's interesting to see Clark is far less stiff back in Smallville than he is in Metropolis. That's because he's dealing with a girl he knew as a teen, and therefore is more himself around her, even being pixie-ish around Lana. If you wanted to see a midway point between Supes and Clark by Reeves, the picnic scene is it.

** 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.
