Superman Physics



After watching the original Superman movie from 1978, starring Christopher Reeve, I noticed something strange. This film has a reputation of being the best and most realistic of all the old Superman movies, so I found it strange that it has the most phoned-in plot device I've seen in a long time. Of course I'm referring to the ending where Superman, enraged by Lois Lane's death, flies so fast around the earth that he actually rewinds time to right before she dies. Watching this now that I'm older I know that time has nothing to do with the rotation of the earth, so is the original Superman really the best of the movies? (its definitely still a million times better than Superman IV)
