When Jeremy appears at the press conference, his response to the reporters is "I wish Superman would've said yes." The Daily Planet publishes the headline as "Superman Says Drop Dead to Kid!" In 1975, when New York City was facing bankruptcy, Mayor Abraham Beame asked the government for a federal bailout, and President Gerald Ford gave a speech denying federal assistance to New York City, and the New York Daily News published the story with the headline "Ford to City: Drop Dead", misquoted words which Ford never himself said when turning down New York City's request for federal relief.

SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE pits the Man of Steel against Nuclear Man, Lex Luther's newest creation while ridding the world of nuclear weapons. This is easily the worst of the SUPERMAN movies, and it was doomed to fail right from the start. Cut from its original 134-minute version, it is full of plot holes resulting in a movie with some scenes that just don't make any sense, but even with the extra 45 minutes intact, the movie still wouldn't work because the special effects are cheap and ridiculous, and it shows. Unless you are a diehard fan of the Superman genre, this movie should be avoided.
