YMMV: Superman: Doomsday
  • Adaptation Distillation: The story works out well, considering the sheer volume of things that had to be cut to fit the storyline into one movie.
  • Ho Yay: Lex Luthor's obsession raised quite a few eyebrows. His interactions with clone Superman in the red sun room don't help matters.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Clone Superman walking into a random barber shop and performing brain surgery on himself.
    • When Clone Superman rescues the cat, you're not sure if he's gonna return the cat to the old lady or kill it in front of her.
  • Squick: Suspicious of Luthor, Clone Superman casually walks into a beauty parlor and sits at one mirror in what at first is a really bizarre scene. He then uses his x-ray vision to spot the kryptonite encased in lead that Luthor planted in his brain. He then surgically removes it with his heat vision and a pair of scissors. We don't see any of this, but it's no wonder one of the workers fainted.
