* CrazyAwesome: Lex Luthor's introduction. A top scientist at STAR Labs, he's taking a coffee break playing (and winning) [[SmartPeoplePlayChess fourteen simultaneous games of chess]] while reading Machiavelli's ''ThePrince'' and also listening to a teach-yourself-Urdu tape on a Walkman of his own invention "to keep my mind occupied". He designed and invented the walkman only a few hours earlier.

*MythologyGag: The time travel ending is similar to one of Superman's co-creator Jerry Siegel's original concepts in 1934 where superman comes from the future and sent by his father ,the last man on earth to the past.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: When Superman asks Lex how he managed to circumvent the Fortress' defences?
--> Defences? Oh, I just thought they were decorations for some cheap Russian folk festival.

* MartyStu: Lex Luthor, '''holy cow'''. Smart beyond belief, multitasking while learning a new language, everything he plans works out, even if it makes no sense and would be utterly impossible. Moreover, he [[spoiler: singlehandedly defeats Red Supes and his whole empire at their own game; wins global power through elections that make a point of showing off how much he is utterly loved by crediting him with a 101% result; creates a utopia that will last millions of years -all thanks to an ideology named after him- and finally set up a bloodline that will always keep the power during those millions of years.]] This is a VillainSue that is (ab)using ArtisticLicense to oblivion and is truly and completely playing the intellectual and political PowerFantasy UpToEleven.



* WhatAnIdiot: Pyotr is totally confident of his ability to defeat Batman [[spoiler: once their plan to overthrow Superman is complete, right after Bats ''kidnapped him from his own private car.'']]

** One part of Superman mythos that this Superman lacks is that there is no Kryptonite in this story (as Luthor would have undoubtedly used it against him if it did). [[spoiler: The reason is that because this story has the infant Kal-L being sent from a far distant future, ''there is no Krytpon, so there is no Kryptonite!]]

** The idea of a Communist Superman is actually an incredibly interesting concept if the comic engaged with the real history of the [=USSR=] rather than retread tropes from anti-communist propaganda.
