Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • When Jonathan Kent suffers a heart attack, Superman rushes to him so fast that his hair catches on fire from the friction, but he's still too late.
  • The Unknown Superman's comment to Jonathan Kent, "It all works out in the end." Becomes one retroactively.

Superman: Pa? Why can't I hear his heartbeat?

  • Superman: I love you, Lois Lane. Until the end of time.
  • That heartwarming moment with the suicidal kid is also a tear jerker. If you took all eighty years of the character's history and distilled it into a single pure moment containing all his best qualities, that one page would be it. He inspires strength, wisdom, kindness, freedom, value and hope in just a few words. And he saves a life. I'm crying just thinking about it.
