Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Lana Lang is noted to have disappeared from Smallville at some point before the beginning of the story. That element never comes up again, and the only other appearance she makes is during a flashback to when they were in highschool.


** It takes him some time to fully get into the groove of it though. Martha advised him to keep his voice softer and higher, but at first he makes himself too soft, with multiple characters telling him he needs to speak up.

Martha advised him to keep his voice softer and higher, but at first he makes himself too soft, with multiple characters telling him he needs to speak up. However, he eventually gets so good at it that he starts getting ignored at the office, with the cleaning crew not even noticing he's still there.

Added DiffLines:

* DudeNotFunny: Apparently Lex finds a great deal of humour in informing [[spoiler:Superman that his homeworld is gone and that he is all that's left of his people]]. He even takes a picture of his face so he can capture the moment.


* ClarkKenting: Martha and Clark go into detail on his new "[[ClarkKentOutfit disguise]]." Never wear clothes that show off his physique, unkempt hair, his mannerisms and Martha even {{lampshade|Hanging}}s the fact the glasses aren't there so much to hide his face as to tone down his "unique" eye color.

Added DiffLines:

* ThouShallNotKill: Superman's traditional rule is explored through "soul vision". Clark can now perceive auras in living humans and other animals. He grows up vegetarian since plants don't have auras and he feels profound sadness when such auras fade away.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: As Luthor is trying [[spoiler:to communicate with Krypton,]] a voice in the background exclaims: "Such a Lovely daughter, Allura!" Allura In-Ze is the mother of Kara Zor-El alias ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', who was restored to the main universe a few months later. It must be mentioned that Mark Waid [[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2014/06/another-reason-why-mark-waid-is-one-of.html is a big Supergirl fan]].

Added DiffLines:

* BulletCatch: Superman shoots an illegal arms dealer and catches the bullet just before it hits him so he'll know what it's like when someone shoots you.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonWelding: Was originally intended as an an AlternateContinuity but DC decided to make it canon and replace ''Comicbook/TheManOfSteel'' .

Added DiffLines:

* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: It's made very clear that Jor-El and Lara aren't sure if they'll be able to get their son to an inhabitable planet. They intended that the computer on Kal-El's spaceship might find one but then Jor-El discovered Earth just before he launched the rocket. We also see that the ship had just barely enough fuel to reach Earth.
