- During a conversation with J'onn, Vandal Savage makes a reference to Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of the Übermensch. The term has been often interpreted in comparing Superman to Nietzsche's ideal, though under a misunderstanding of Nietzsche's meanings. The Übermensch concept was also alluded by Lois Lane in the Superman: The Animated Series episode "The Last Son of Krypton".
