Added DiffLines:

* Bruce discusses with Alfred at one point that his ancestors made their fortune by trading raccoon pelts with the native tribes of Gotham. This was the same backstory behind the Wayne family fortune given in, of all things, a story arc in ''Series/Batman1966'' involving Creator/VincentPrice as Egghead and a character named [[EthnicScrappy Chief Screaming Chicken]].


** Robin's costume in display, with "HA! HA! HA!" written in yellow paint over it.



** Bruce asks Alfred that after 20 years in Gotham, "How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?" He's most likely talking about Two-Face.

Added DiffLines:

* WordOfGod states that the scene where Clark travels alone and talks with a vision of Jonathan Kent in the snow is a metaphorical MythologyGag to the Fortress of Solitude.

Added DiffLines:

* Like in Post-Crisis, Lex still has hair when Superman made his debut, and eventually went bald due to stress over his conflicts with Superman. This is also not the [[Series/LoisAndClark first adaptation]] to follow that same direction.

* Superman's [[https://i.imgur.com/663ZrV4.png statue has the boots with the square-shaped rims]] from his [[https://i.imgur.com/i2OUV8g.jpg New 52]] incarnation pre-[[spoiler: ComicBook/SupermanReborn]], instead of the ones from his actual costume with the double M-shaped rims.

Added DiffLines:
