For a story that has mass appeal, The Death of Superman has tons of goofy, unexplained things from the 1990s continuity: Matrix Supergirl, the War Worlders, Jimmy Olsen dressed as a Turtle, Bloodwynd, Redhead Australian Luthor. I can't imagine what Theoretical Casual Buyer thought of it.
I understood that stuff happened when I wasn't reading these titles and I quickly adapted. Lex Luthor II must have been explained, because I got his backstory somehow.
