YMMV / Super

  • Alternate Character Interpretation - Intentionally done with Frank. Is he a hero? Is he just crazy? Is he both?
  • Heartwarming Moments - Frank looking at his wall of memories with his new pet bunny at the end of the movie.
    • Not to mention just before that, when Frank recounts all of the good that came out of his rescuing Sarah, culminating in her having a stable, loving family with four kids.
  • Moment of Awesome - Take your pick. Libby's Car Fu and Frank's Roaring Rampage of Revenge at the end come to mind.
    • Frank's last line before stabbing Jacque to death is chillingly awesome.
      Jacques: Do you really think that killing me, stabbing me to death, is going to change the world?
      Frank: I can't know that... for sure... unless I try.
  • Moral Event Horizon - If you needed any more convincing that Jacques is a horrible person, giving Sarah to a fellow drug dealer so he can rape her as part of sweetening a business deal cements it. Even his fellow cronies look disgusted.
    • An earlier scene had Libby killing the guy who allegedly keyed her friend's car. This was cut out in fear that this would cause her to cross this too early.
      • Some would also see Libby raping Frank as this.
  • Older Than They Think - A lot of people have accused Super of ripping off Kick-Ass because it uses the idea of a normal guy trying to be a superhero (even though the film was in the works since 2001) when the "real-life superhero" genre dates as far back to the 1980 John Ritter comedy Hero at Large and had later been used in Defendor and Special.
  • Squick - "It's all gooshy."
    • Frank's visions have a tendency toward this.
  • Tear Jerker - Libby's death and Frank's subsequent devastated reaction is heartbreaking.
  • What an Idiot: Boltie repeatedly refers to The Crimson Bolt by his Secret Identity, Frank, after they beat up the guy that allegedly keyed her friend's car in his house (That The Crimson Avenger is wanted by the police didn't help matters). He promptly starts to leave the premises with her. Perhaps justified by her getting overly excited and panicked during her first superhero outing.
