- Spider-Man tells he has heard of Superman all his life. Well, considering Superman is an older character... and in the Amazing Spider-Man #3 Doc Ock called him Superman... But, seriously, Clark is around ten years older than Peter, and in the Pre-Crisis continuity he started out his heroic career in his teenager years. Peter had to be a little boy when Superboy first showed up.
- Lex Luthor is clearly loaded. He can afford dozens of super-villain lairs, massive mechas, doomsday weapons... It's unsurprising that he doesn't actually want to blackmail the USA Government. What does he need money for?
