Really? The only thing I remember from that movie is Superman lifts things. That's part of the problem with Superman, he's so powerful that every thing is super mundane. When every problem can be lifted away it gets kinda boring. Oh no, a falling plane, I'll just lift it up. Oh no, a mountain of Kryptonite, yea, I can lift that too somehow. Oh no, he's shooting me with a machine gun, yea, you bet ya I'm going to just lift that barrel and bend it. Falling woman, lift her up. Zzz....
