But the biggest thing to me was him meeting Lois before even becoming Superman.
Actually, in the Donner film he spent 12 years in the fortress.
One gripe some have against MOS is "how did Clark get a job at the DP." However, he actually is only a stringer. The big question in STM was, how did Clark get a job? But maybe there was more between the end of his 12 years in the fortress and his coming to work at the DP.
