* FanonDiscontinuity: This feature was considered so terrible that virtually all fans pretend it does not exist.
* HollywoodHomely: Bizarrely, there's an animated version with Sara, who Jimmy dismisses as not being anywhere near as hot as Mercy solely on the basis of her wearing glasses, despite her being drawn just as attractively as most of the other female characters in the movie.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Despite how horrible it is Creator/TimDaly still gives a sincere effort as Superman, as do Creator/DavidKaufman as Jimmy Olsen and George Dzundza as Perry White. With Creator/DanaDelany as Lois Lane it's hard to tell...
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks[=/=]WTHCastingAgency: Creator/PowersBoothe, Creator/LanceHenriksen, and Creator/TaraStrong weren't well received in the respective roles of Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and Mercy. Part of this is due to them replacing Creator/ClancyBrown, Creator/CoreyBurton, and Creator/LisaEdelstein in the roles and part of it is due to many fans feeling they didn't fit the characters.
