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.
Narm / Narm Charm: yo-yo's back and forth between these, with the slightly cartoony and over the top narration and the generally cheesy nature of some of the dialogue, particularly in the earlier stories.
Strawman Has a Point: Robert Kelly and Nick Fury had their reservations about Superman and later General Zod, which the latter came out true in the end when he is at command of Sentrius.
What an Idiot: Duncan stupidly punched Superman in the face when it was clear his attempts at racist bullying weren't working...and broke his hand in the process while Superman was completely unfazed.
Cadmus fiddles with a piece of Kryptonian technology despite not knowing anything about it, and end up nearly dragging the Earth into a black hole while also causing the release of General Zod.
The Friends of Humanity in general fall into this trope due to several factors, including countless examples of Bullying a Dragon, having no members within their ranks who can match the heavy-hitters of the Justice League in a fight, severely overestimating humanity's opinion of them, having comparatively primitive weaponry, and being overall dumbasses in general. Really, it's a wonder how they lasted as long as they did when, compared to the Big Bads of the series, they're nothing but a joke.
