These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: All-Star Superman
Angst? What Angst?: Superman, upon learning that he's dying, merely proceeds to quietly put his affairs in order.
The same applies to Lex concerning his imminent execution. Though in his case, it's possible his escape was already planned.
Fridge Logic: Something seems odd when Batman (the world's greatest detective) doesn't make a single appearance in this story. Not even for a cameo, or to comfort one of his closest friends (in most continuities at least) as he's dying.
The series deliberately doesn't feature anyone from outside the Superman stories note Unless you count the Sun Eater.
Hype Backlash: When the introduction to volume two contains a promise that chapter ten proves Superman is cooler than God, well, this sort of hype has lead some fans to hold the story to an unreasonable standard.
Rule of Symbolism: The whole series is 12 issues and in those issues Superman's story is following a sun's path throughout the sky. By the middle of the series he's entering his "winter" phase and we finally see Metropolis at night. In the end of episode 5, Lex's sidekick and niece rows a boat with Clark out of the prison where Lex is. It is heavily based on the Greek conception of the dead being sailed to the underworld on the river Styx by Death.
Win BACK The Crowd: In the sense that the story allowed Morrison to use some of the concepts from his aborted Superman 2000 pitch and bring back his DC One Million continuity.
Adaptation Decay: The film changes Solaris' fate from being captured and reprogrammed to being executed by Superman. It also changes the pacing of the prison riot so that Clark fails to save some convicts from the Parasite. The adaptation also cuts two of the comic's most affecting moments; where Superman gets to say a final goodbye to his father, and the famous scene with the attempted suicide.
Harsher in Hindsight: As mentioned on the main page, writer Dwayne McDuffie died suddenly of complications from emergency heart surgery the day before the film was released on DVD. Made all the more poignant because the film concerns Superman facing his mortality, and he had been giving interviewsabout the film mere days before.
Magnum Opus: Some fans even consider All-Star Superman to be McDuffie's Swan Song.
