* OvernightAgeUp: Due to the antimatter barrier that gave him his powers, he went from a baby to a teenager in hours before aging to a thirty five year old man with none of the experiences to go with the aging. This lack of a childhood and experience with others contributed to his eventual descent into villainy.

* TheResenter: Of the survivors of the Crisis.Crisis and the reality of the New Earth.

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: {{Trope Namer|s}}. His sole reason for being was ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman. And to defeat Superman, Doomsday had to be overtly strong and feral to the point he has basically no personality, being comparable to an angry stampeding animal.

Added DiffLines:

* TerminatorImpersonator: Sports much of the aesthetic of a Terminator, what with half its body being a {{Skelebot|9000}} complete with GlowingMechanicalEyes. You could basically call him a "Terminator in a Superman costume", but he is a human whose intelligence was merged with machinery and then created an artificial body to impersonate Superman. His similarity to a Terminator was played up in ''Superman Versus The Terminator'', where he allies himself with a Terminator so that the two can destroy their mutual enemies (Superman and John Connor) and pave the way for machinekind to rule. Further, in order to combat the increased threat that Kryptonians pose, Skynet upgrades its Terminators with abilities like [[EyeBeams Heat-Vision]] and {{Jet Pack}}s.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: While the cover of each issue of ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'' features a character facing the reader, Issue 5 has his back facing the reader. A nod to the pre-Crisis Bizarro being a mixed-up, backwards creature.

She mesmerized Superman into believing he was their husband, and erased his memories of Earth and Lois. They lived together for a while, raising a son as ordinary citizens in Kandor. All the while, his spirit was slowly being broken, because although he loved her, life in Kandor is just too depressing. When she was ready, she copied his powers and escaped the bottle city, intending to rule Metropolis as its new God. She was shocked to discover that Superman was simply Metropolis' protector, not its ruler, and angrily tried to destroy him and the city. In the end, she realized that she truly had feelings for him, and seemingly sacrificed herself to save him from another threat. She hasn't been seen since her storyline, ''Superman: Godfall'', but she may come back, one day.
