Superman Returns

Lex creates a giant kriptonite encrusted Island and stabs Superman with Kriptonite. Superman falls into the sea and it looks like curtains for him when Lois and her husband Richard come and rescue him. Lois takes the Kryptonite out and Superman, half recovered goes back to the island, lifting it up with all his strength. Lex and his buddies go to leave but his henchman get killed and he and Kitty leave in a helicopter, Kitty dropping the crystals as they leave. Superman throws the island from Earths atmosphere and tumbles back to earth with a thump, leaving him in a coma. Superman lives and finds out that Lois Lane's son is his. He says the same thing to the boy (the son becomes the father and the father becomes the son) that his dad said to him. It is left very open at the end, for sequel's sake I take it, but Lois makes it clear she wants Superman in their lives and her current boyfriend is out of the picture. She asks him whether he she will see him around and he replies 'I'm always around Lois' and flies off.

Deliberate mistake: When Lex tests the crystal fragment, it knocks out all the power on the airplane Lois is flying in, yet the flight attendant's amplified voice can still be heard over the speakers. (00:30:40)

Question: I've always been led to believe that the suit is as impervious as Superman, hence the bullets bouncing off his chest with no marks on the suit. Yet at the end of the movie, the doctors and nurses cut the suit and tear it off of him. Is the suit affected by kryptonite as well?

Answer: There are two stories: a) the suit was made by Martha Kent from the blankets which came with Superman when he was a child and these blankets got superstrenght from the sun too. b) Superman generates an aura which protects him and his suit against such forces. Both stories can be true: either the suit itself is weakend by the kryptonite or Superman's aura was weakend by it. Currently it is said that the blanket-story is the correct one. Also, they don't actually cut it off him - it appears to open along a predefined line (coupled with someone exclaiming "got it!"), presumably the method Superman uses to get into the suit himself.
