    Lex Luthor: But he was MY monster!
    • Crosses over into a Heartwarming Moment when in the epilogue, he reveals that he is restarting the cloning program to recreate Bizarro, not make a perfect Superman clone.
  • Lex also reveals through inner monologue that his terminally ill sister never died, but he considers his efforts to save her a failure as they left her an invalid. He then calls her and promises to visit her.
