If I recall correctly, Superman actually _pushes_ it into space. But I
could be wrong.
(And, for the record, I think SUPERMAN RETURNS is one of the best
super-movies I've ever seen. Certainly better than the last two
Superman films. The film reduced me to tears several times, simply
because they had gotten things *right*. It's the same reason I perfer
BATMAN BEGINS to the other four Bat-films: it understands the character
and takes him seriously and at face value.)

Though, come to think of it, Obscure Trivia Lad _is_ a shape-shifting
liquid-metal cyborg. So even if my physics was wrong, Obscure Trivia
Lad would not only be able to break Adamant Authority-on-Everything's
nose, but would also be able to withstand any reactive force-- since
his limbs are made out of indestructable metal. :-)
I always enjoy the DD/MB specials. I can't really do an in-depth
review of them/character analysis, but they're very amusing and well
worth the wait.
