Why are we here, and how does Superman shave, clearly the two biggest unanswered questions known to man.

Many of the questions he raised about Superman's sex life is exactly why I hated Superman Returns, the last Superman movie. Because when *spoiler* that kid tosses that piano across the room and reveals himself to be the unknown offspring of LL and Supes *end spoiler* I'm like WTF? That isn't some third act twist you just throw into a movie, you have to explain how the hell Superman is able to procreate with a human. I was completely pulled out of the movie. But even if I was to let that pass, then the ending is complete BS.

How is it that *spoiler* Superman on an island made of Kryptonite can get shanked in the kidney by a kryptonite blade, then fall 200 feet into the cold Atlantic ocean, get rescued and just shake it off like nothing happen. He just flies up to the sky, absorbs a little sunlight (apparently to recharge his battery, which frankly is ridiculous because Superman has been slowly absorbing sunlight for 30+ years, there's no way the previous incident could completely sap him of that) then just go and pick up the entire continent of Kryptonite (which only minutes before immediately began killing him by stepping foot on it) and have the strength to toss it into space *end spoiler*

Superman is nearly omnipotent. But you gotta play by the rules. You can't just make up stuff as you go along that is just convenient to the story/plot. That's bad writing.
