YMMV / Superman/Batman

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: This was the last series Jeph Loeb worked on before his infamous Creator Breakdown following the death of his son Sam. It makes his funnier stories bittersweet knowing that in advance.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the "With a Vengeance Arc", Batman and Superman take on the Maximums, a team of alternate-reality superheroes who are all obviously based on Marvel's The Ultimates. Not long afterwards, Loeb actually ended up writing for The Ultimates.
  • Ho Yay: The point of the series was to make Clark and Bruce friends again, and boy did it. They think about each other all the time, they hang out all the time, Bruce meets Clark's family, and Clark looks out for Bruce's family.
  • Strawman Has a Point: At the climax of "The Search for Kryptonite" Amanda Waller argues for keeping a large store of Kryptonite on hand in case Superman goes crazy. The message is suppose to be "The American government is controlling and paranoid" (all the American flags around the base really sell it), but she has a point about someone having something around to keep Superman in check. Even worse at the end Batman himself is shown to have his own store of Kryptonite, which just brings up the question of why the guy responsible for the "JLA: Tower of Babel" story is the only person equipped to handle a rogue Superman.
  • Unexpected Character: In The Supergirl From Krypton, Kara Zor-El makes her first appearance in the mainstream universe since 1986.
