Superman II

Realizing that the battle of the titans in Metropolis will accomplish nothing but death and destruction for the city and its human inhabitants, Superman flies away to his Fortress of Solitude in the far north. The super-villains follow close behind, with Lois Lane and Lex Luthor in tow. After attempting to battle in the Fortress of Solitude, the super-villains threaten to kill Lois unless Superman gives up. He steps into the chamber that removed his powers earlier in the film, but has anticipated this move and so has reversed its effects--the chamber protects him from losing his powers, while the super-villains who are standing outside the chamber instead lose theirs.Superman finally kneels before General Zod, only to crush his hand and throws him into a deep crevasse. Non tries to fly to the rescue of his master, only to fall into another crevasse himself. Finally, Lois punches Ursa, who then falls into yet another crevasse. Superman and Lois fly back to Metropolis, leaving the traitorous Lex Luthor to fend for himself. Back in Metropolis, Superman causes Lois to forget his secret identity with a super-kiss so as to spare her from the despair of knowing that they can never be together. He is again and forever Superman, and ties up a couple of other loose ends as the movie closes.


Superman II mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: Ursa throws the sewer lid at Superman sending him flying backwards into the car windshield. Watch the sewer lid carefully when Superman actually hits the windshield. You can see that the sewer lid was actually attached to a belt around his waist so that it would stay in place for the shots where he is flying backward through the air. (01:39:50)

Question: At the end of the movie when Clark and Lois are talking to each other at the Daily Planet, Clark kisses Lois and she forgets that Clark is really Superman. How could that happen and why would Clark make Lois forget that he is Superman, since she promised not to tell anyone?

Answer: Superman was be able to kiss Lois in such a way that the heightened emotion wiped out her memory of his identity. To answer your second question, even though Lois promised not to tell anyone, Superman decided he does not want even her to know his secret identity.

Answer: I don't agree that he didn't even want her to know because he struggled in the beginning of the first movie with telling her on the first date. He was about to tell her from the beginning who he was. I don't understand why he was breaking it off with her at the end of the second movie and erased her memory to help her get over him. This confusion continues when he develops a relationship with another woman in the third or fourth movie.

At the end of the movie, he realises her love for him is torturing her, so he decided to remove the memories to end her suffering. It works, too, because as soon as she forgets, she's back to her old, happy self.
