The junkyard fight was good, but it made me laugh both Clark Kent and evil Superman thought any of the things they used to hurt each other actually would. The only thing would be Kryptonite, but even then that is harmful to both of them.
I always got the impression that the fight was a representation of the psychological Superman was having, and not that he was actually split in two and was duking it out with himself.
But the place was still smashed up after the fight was done, and it wouldn't be beyond the power of Red K to actually split him in two.
The fight was actually the one thing in S3 that made sense to me as a fanboy. I assumed Pryor had inadvertently created artificial Red K that first turned him evil and then split him into two individuals.

Unfortuantely they had to get them out of Superman's bedpan.

It was clear to me that the imperfect Kryptonite he made was supposed to be the movie version of Red K. They couldn't make it red because then Pryor and co would've known right off the bat they'd got it wrong and wouldn't use it.

Superman III was more of a Richard Pryor movie. At least IV had it's heart in the right place and tried to get back to the magic of the franchise.
Doesn't mean IV didn't suck, which it did.
Oh, it did suck. I just rank it lower on the suck meter next to III.

Didn't President Obama already do this?

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

While I find SIII to be surprisingly watchable despite it's problems, it's still kind of mindboggling to me that they decided to follow up a kickass Superman vs Zod movie.... with a dumb comedy featuring Richard Pryor, a generic businessman, and a plan to use computers and weather satellites to control the economy (or whatever the hell that random, idiotic plan of his was).

I mean, what the fuck? With so many other great stories and supervillains to choose from, they went with THAT??

^ I thought I remember reading that they were considering Brainiac as a villain (hence the focus on the super computers and such), but opted out.

Then again, a lot of Superman's villains would have been hard to pull off, effects-wise, in the early 80s.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Nuclear Man sprung out from not being able to use Brainiac in Superman IV. There is video footage I believe on youtube of Brainiac from IV...think it's even been discussed at one point on the board. Can't remember.

Maybe, but the Superboy series did a pretty decent job realizing some of those villains on their limited budget.

And there were plenty of great robots, cyborgs, aliens, and monsters in scifi movies of the early 80s. Any one of them could have worked, with a few tweaks, as a villain in a Superman movie.

there is a cut scene that explains that:

British diplomat: We have to stop him!

American diplomat: Are you out of your fucking mind? He's got rid of all the nukes and could wipe us all out in seconds. Just shut the fuck out, smile and clap like the rest of us and hope King Superman the first lets us live.
I'd seen this cover before, but didn't know that Superman had enslaved the Dominators and transported them to Ea...

Oh. He's supposed to be Chinese, isn't he? Oh, oh no.

That cover seems another good example of Super Dickery!
