* During ''A World Without Superman'', Franchise/{{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 ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'s'' rules.
* The Man of Steel AKA John Henry Irons is the only replacement who admits upfront he is NOT Superman; Rather, Superman saved his life and when he found out his inventions were being sold to gangsters, he created the Steel armor to fight crime in Superman's honor. Lois Lane notes later that, even though he's not Superman, he at least has plenty of Superman's spirit in him.
