Invulnerability: Superman is nearly invulnerable to weapons used by normal humans in warfare and we believe that, fully powered, he could survive a near-direct nuclear strike with a ten megaton warhead.

Super Strength: The upper limit to his physical strength is not known but with the telekinetic lifting capabilities possessed by Superman, he could conceivably lift objects weighing 100,000 tons or more.

Energy Projection: He may project beams of force that have the ability to reach temperatures of 11,000 degrees F, sufficient to melt steel in seconds.

Super Senses: He also possesses a superior sensory arrangement of microscopic, telescopic, infrared and ultraviolet visual capabilities. His hearing is so acute and precise he can detect a whisper at 500 yards.

Superspeed: He has been seen flying from the Moon to the Earth in under 2 minutes. That is the equivalent of 2000 miles per second or 1% the speed of light.

Weaknesses: Kryptonite, Magic, High Energy Attacks or Radiation

In my opinion he is alot more powerful compared to most superheros, but for the enimies he faces I think he isn't too powerful.

*Pssst* Um superman isn't real.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:19:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think a good question to ponder IF Superman was/is too powerful is this - how would he fare in a communist or socialist state, having all that power?

Wait. Did someone say he ISN'T real? No way!

I know he's not real @ssholes. This is far from the worst of questions that have been accepted.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 8:12:29 AM EST (GMT-5)

Batman is much, much, much, cooler, and better, and smarter, and cooler.

The original Superman got his strength from stronger gravity on Krypton. He could only leap over buildings then and run faster than a locomotive. How do they explain that he is so much faster and stronger now than comic book Superman?

When Christopher Reeve was Superman, he flew around the world so fast he sent us all back in time an hour or so. That would have to be faster than light.

This is quite a pointless thread
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/27/04 - 3:53:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe some people are interested in comic books dumbass.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/27/04 - 4:29:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
considering he's not real, NO!
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/27/04 - 4:30:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Shut up bitch.

Superman is a little bit too powerful. But, that probably has allegorical meaning. So much power, that can be overcome by a few grams of Kryptonite.
It shows that everyone, from the most powerful to the least, has their own kryptonite with which they must deal.

The hard part is finding out what that kryptonite is...
