* TearJerker: Comes with the territory. Watching Superman's last blows with Doomsday, as his friends, colleagues, and family watch helplessly, is truly heart breaking.

* HeartwarmingMoments: During ''A World Without Superman'', {{Batman}} intercepts a terrorist who wanted to blow up the funeral, and stated that in honor of his fallen friend, he was playing it by ''Superman's'' rules.
* HilariousInHindsight: During "Reign of the Superman" a fan commented in his letter that "It's amazing how far comics have come in twenty years. Then Doomsday would have been some monster thrown from Krypton or something". When Doomsday's origin was eventually revealed, it turned out comics actually hadn't changed that much.

** It was hard to take seriously at the time for comics fans, given that NeverFoundTheBody predates the medium, and [[ComicBook/XMen Jean Grey]] had [[OlderThanTheyThink already returned from the grave.]] Heck, even mainstream {{Superhero}} TV show pulled this stunt before such as ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'' in the 1970s reviving the supposedly deceased Jamie Sommers for her own series, ''Series/TheBionicWoman''. Superman's death is the TropeCodifier.

* TheWoobie: Lois Lane. Watching the man she loves fighting and dies while still determine to recording the fight is hard enough, but what made her cross into this territory is that, unlike the other heroes and civilains, she is both completely powerless to do anything and, at this storyline, knows both Superman and Clark Kent. While the story focus is on actions, Lois's grieve and pain is detailed very clearly, especially with the four new Superman crop up later in the story.

** During his fight with Doomsday, Superman muses that he would suspect Luthor was responsible for creating Doomsday if he were still alive. Sure enough, Luthor ended up being the one who created Doomsday in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''.

* IdiotBall: Doomsday may be really tough, but he also presented absolutely no threat if he couldn't get within arm's reach of anything. Despite the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} having multiple telekinetics at the time, nobody thought of simply picking him up.

Granted it probably wouldn't have worked since Doomsday was made unstoppable but point for trying.
