* SuperReflexes: Implied to be one of Judy's RequiredSecondaryPowers, given that her bike has SuperSpeed and she doesn't crash it.


* HilariousInHindsight : At one point, Bronze Eagle is handed something by the arm of a rubber-man hero with familiar looking hair in a blue and white costume, to which he says, "Thanks, Reed.", a lawyer-friendly reference to Mister Fantastic. Nowadays, though? No lawyers need be consulted, since the House Of Mouse bought the House Of Ideas.


* FlyingBrick, Like Superman (his long-time rival), Franchise/WonderWoman and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}, Steel Condor has {{Flight}}, SuperStrength, and NighInvulnerability. However, unlike Superman, Steel Condor ages normally, and his abilities degrade over time (it's faster for him to take a cab then fly).

* CelebrityParadox: Averted. Both {{Superman}} and SpiderMan exist in the film's 'verse. In fact, SpiderMan and Mary Jane visited Jim's parents last week, and the former left spiderwebs all over Doris's carpet. Steel Condor has a long-standing rivalry with Superman due to similar abilities.

* EyeBeams: Molly has the typical {{Superman}} laser beams, which she uses to prank Scott. According to him, she had the ability at the age of 2. It's a wonder she didn't set the house on fire.

* AnimalWrongsGroup: While Nina genuinely cares for the environment, her methods (using MassHypnosis on children) are decidedly unethical. Malcolm just wants to be rich and dupes Nina into helping him. He even convinces her that robbing banks is necessary to fund her crusade.

Malcolm just wants to be rich and dupes Nina into helping him. He even convinces her that robbing banks is necessary to fund her crusade. Nina is also blind to the fact that Malcolm couldn't give a crap about the environment and later admits that there were many warning signs (e.g. drinking out of a styrofoam cup, wearing a leather belt).


Malcolm manages to capture Scott's parents and brother using their WeaksauceWeakness, aluminum foil. Using foil, he weakens them, while using the program to brainwash them into his personal super-{{Mook}}s. Scott, Randy (his best friend), and Amy arrive and manage to defeat Malcolm without any powers. Adam erases Amy's memories of the events but allows Randy to keep his memories, so that Scott has someone to talk to. Scott and Amy agree to become co-captains, while Randy suggests to Scott that he should become a {{Batman}}-like hero with Randy as his sidekick.
