Plot hole: Superman traps the supervillain (whose power depends on sunlight) inside of an elevator to incapacitate him. Superman then ripped the elevator out of the building. He then plants it on the far side of the moon. Later on, sunlight starts to shine into the elevator through a slit at where the doors meet. The villain of course recharges and comes after Superman again. Now, if light could get through that crack there, then why couldn't it get through when the elevator was ripped out of the building in BROAD DAYLIGHT?
Factual error: When Nuclear Man takes the publisher of the newspaper out into space. Humans cannot breathe in outer space. Even if they could, wouldn't she burn up in re-entry? It can't be Superman's powers are transferred to someone he's touching, otherwise in the second film he could never have crushed General Zod's hand...
Plot hole: When Nuclear Man sees a picture of Lacy Warfield on the newspaper he decides to go after her. When confronted by Superman he asks "Where is the woman?" Superman responds that he'll never find her. How could Superman know which woman Nuclear Man was talking about? There was no indication that Superman knew that Nuclear Man was looking for Lacy.
Continuity mistake: Whenever there is a shot of Superman flying taken from directly in front of him, against a blue screen (watch out for the oh-so-visible black outline and loss of colour), it's always the exact same shot. Obviously the producers could only get one day with the blue screen, then.
