Reviewers' Comments:
Superman Returns narrowly missed earning a pink lung for all of its anti tobacco messages with Superman encouraging Lois Lane not to smoke by showing Lex Luthor smoking a cigar with no anti message to counter the images of power and celebration. KT

Anti-Tobacco Message 1:
Comment
Health of Smoker
Superman tells Lane she shoudn't smoke and blows out the flame that would light her cigarette. Later Richard states out of concern to Lane "Were you smoking?"
At end of film Lane goes outside to smoke but doesn’t light up, seemingly realizing it's a bad thing to do
