More trivia for Superman II

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.

Matty Blast

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.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: I think people put too much emphasis on that kiss as some kind of power. Think about what happens when you kiss someone. You know the expression to suck face? He is slowly but unintentionally sucking the air out of her lungs. That is why she becomes dizzy and almost thanks. When the weed comes in she is finally starting to breathe normally the reason why people think that she forgot Superman a daddy at Clark, is because she asked a question what we talkin about. If you think about it logically, how would kissing her make her forget that information? I mean, if he kissed her too long could she possibly forget who she is?
