Super Power Explained: How Do Superman’s Powers Work?

 

SUPER POWER

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

In Power Level Explained: Superman Shatters Epoch’s Omega Barrier With His Heat Vision, we rated Superman’s Heat Vision feat Galaxy-Level. Now, we attempt to answer a popular question about Superman and his powers.

PHYSIOLOGICALLY, SUPERMAN IS A SOLAR BATTERY

The Man Of Steel (1986) #1. DC Comics.

Perhaps, the most popular question in all of comicdom: How do Superman‘s powers work? There have been multiple explanations for Superman’s fantastic super powers under the yellow sun.

During the Golden Age, his abilities were attributed to Krypton having a higher gravity than Earth, granting Superman a stronger, denser more durable skin.

Over time, the Kryptonian’s powers grew and new explanations were added. During the Silver Age and the Bronze Age, Superman’s powers were explained as the products of Earth’s weaker gravity and the radiation of Earth’s yellow sun.

During that time span, Superman truly became a god-like being capable of moving planets or withstanding nukes.

POST-CRISIS

Post-Crisis, iconic writer and artist John Byrne completely revamped the Superman mythos. In fact, Byrne Superman was again the Last Son of Krypton.

In addition, his humanity mattered more than his alien heritage, as Superman was depicted as a human with superhuman powers.

Controversially, the artist reduced Superman’s powers to a more realistic level in order for the hero to be challenged in stories. As an explanation, Superman’s powers were a manifestation of telekinesis.

As a result, his super powers developed because his Kryptonian cells absorbed yellow solar radiation. After Byrne’s departure, Superman’s powers were again increased to be limitless. Visit Superman’s Powers And Abilities on Fandom.

Though this explanation has proven controversial among fans, let’s explain why John Byrne’s theory makes some sense. Though Superman’s powers and telekinesis are ultimately not mental, but physical.

Now, let’s answer the user’s question by referencing relevant research and the comics.

HOW SUPERMAN’S POWERS WORK

WHY SUPERMAN USES SOME FORM OF TELEKINESIS

1. A BIOLOGICAL MOLECULE THAT ABSORBS LIGHT AND PRODUCES ELECTRICITY
In 'JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice' (2003), Stargirl recharges Superman's powers with sunlight.

In Lex Luthor, Action Comics Annual Vol 1 #11, we explain how Superman’s vulnerability to green kryptonite potentially works. As we know, green kryptonite interferes with a Kryptonian’s ability to absorb yellow sunlight.

From a study, we found that a molecule called xanthopterin may absorb violet light in the Oriental hornet. We hypothesized that Superman uses a homolog of the molecule that evolved in parallel on Krypton.

More importantly, the Oriental hornet absorbs light in order to produce electrical power. Perhaps, this relates to Superman’s bio-electric aura and his superhuman powers under the Earth’s yellow sun.

In a similar process, Superman produces a bio-electric aura that powers his telekinesis. Later, we explain why this process is physical.

2. SUPERMAN'S BIO-ELECTRIC AURA CAN WORK LIKE A SUPER-CONDUCTOR NEGATING THE EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD
Superman editorial. DC Comics.

Generally speaking, Superman’s bio-electric aura is an addition from Byrne’s revamp of the Superman mythos. As the image explains, Superman’s bio-electric aura explains his invulnerability. Also, it may explain his other super powers. Let’s explain.

Since Superman absorbs yellow sunlight, it is possible that the process reaches very high temperatures allowing him to produce electricity. Though it is unclear how he is able to maintain normal body temperatures and homeostasis.

In 1911, superconductivity was discovered by a student working with the Dutch scientist Karmelingh-Onnes. Centrally, at near absolute zero or at very high temperatures, elements and metals display the ability to conduct electricity with no electrical resistance.

Surprisingly, one remarkable feature of superconductivity is the ability to negate a magnetic field. Indeed, this is called the Meissner Effect named after Walther Meissner who discovered it in 1933. Remarkably, a magnet is able to levitate above a superconductor.

SUPERCONDUCTOR

Similarly, with yellow solar radiation absorption, the Man of Steel is able to act as a superconductor. Effectively, he produces a bio-electric aura that allows him to negate the Earth’s magnetic field at the local level.

Partly, this explains his super powers of flight and invulnerability since he negates the Earth’s magnetic field.

In fact, it may suggest he can be powered by cosmic rays and not just solar radiation. In addition, it explains why his powers of telekinesis are mental and physical since he is able to extend his bio-electric aura in order to perform feats of super strength.

Let’s explain further how super-conductivity allows him to negate gravity.

 
3. SUPERMAN'S TELEKINESIS ALLOWS HIM TO NEGATE GRAVITY ON EARTH TO BREAK THE LAWS OF PHYSICS
In Superman (2004) #207, Superman performs a super speed feat. During the fight, Superman speedblitzes Equus. DC Comics

In Superman, ‘Superman’ Vol 2 #207, we rated Superman’s super speed feat during the For Tomorrow story arc. In a fight against Equus, Superman performed the Speedblitz technique.

Amazingly, with his cells charged by yellow sunlight, Superman is able to break the laws of physics. Let’s explain.

Since we hypothesized Superman is able to act as a superconductor, he is able to negate magnetic fields. Importantly, the Meissner effect predicts he can negate gravity.

GENERAL RELATIVITY

According to Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, gravity affects the space-time continuum. In effect, changing the gravitational field can either speed up or slow time.

Hence, Superman acting as a superconductor allows him to affect the space-time continuum. When Superman negates gravity locally on Earth, we can hypothesize he can move faster or slower in time relative to humans.

Also, this explains in part his super strength. Indeed, he is able to bend space-time with his telekinesis allowing him to lift incalculable amounts of weight. And without telekinesis, the heavy objects Superman lifts would crumble under the weight of gravity.

4. SUPERMAN'S KRYPTONIAN PHYSIOLOGY MAKES HISE CELLS DENSER AND MORE DURABLE
In 'Superman: Birthright' (2004) #9, Superman protects Lois Lane from gunfire.
In Superman: Birthright (2004) #9, Superman protects Lois Lane from gunfire. DC Comics.

As we already know, Superman is an alien from the planet Krypton. From the beginning, writers have attributed Kal-El’s super powers to Earth having a weaker gravity. For the most part, this explains Superman’s superhuman strength and invulnerability.

With his denser and more durable skin, the Last Son of Krypton has very strong muscles and is able to withstand high impacts, injury, diseases and toxins, as well as blunt force.

Importantly, Superman’s super strength allows him to move planets. Indeed, since his muscle cells are charged with yellow sunlight and metabolize energy with maximum efficiency.

As a result, we can explain his super strength, invulnerability and longevity with the fact his cells produce no fatigue toxins.

WHY SUPERMAN IS A SOLAR REACTOR

LIKE THE SUN, SUPERMAN PROJECTS ENERGY OUT OF HIS BODY
In Superman/Batman (2004) #10, Superman performs an energy projection feat. Superman vaporizes an army of Doomsday “animates” with heat vision on Themyscira. DC Comics

In Superman, ‘Superman/Batman’ Vol 1 #10, we rated Superman’s heat vision against Doomsday animates. Generally, Superman’s heat vision is the most difficult of his super powers to understand.

In some respects, the Man of Steel may function as a solar battery or a reactor. Since the sun is a nuclear reactor, Superman’s cells may function as nuclear reactors.

Though difficult to really reconcile, since the superhero may be radioactive and emit harmful rays. But his heat vision may be one of his most exotic powers. Since he is a solar reactor, Superman should be able to project energy out of his whole body.

Visit our article on Superman’s Super Flare.

Finally, his other vision powers are likely an enhanced perception from his conversion of electromagnetic radiation.

VISIT SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/BATMAN VOL 1 #10

ANSWER:

Under the Earth’s yellow sun, we hypothesize that Superman’s denser and more durable cells absorb yellow sunlight to produce bio-electricity.

Thanks to some form of telekinesis and Kryptonian physiology, Superman can negate gravity to break the laws of physics for various effects.

And that’s our super power! Please rate our article or share with friends and followers if you liked the Super Power Explained.

This comic completes “The Death of Superman” storyline. It provides an origin story on Doomsday and belongs to your ’90s Superman collection.

The comic stands out because of its fast pace and the urgency of the storyline. This is Superman at his most vulnerable and confronting his mortality. Doomsday is depicted as a threat not even the Man of Steel can overcome on his own power. The comic definitely changes the DC Universe status quo by modifying the hierarchy of power.

This product has excellent reviews and has 26 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5. There is a great satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “I’ve been fascinated by this story since I first read it. I ordered this book for my niece to get her on board with what to me is the greatest story ever told in comic book history.

This story is actually the sequel to the classic Death Of Superman trade paperback. In this collection they go back and tell how the aliens created Doomsday.”

The reviews were overall very positive with 3 negative reviews. A problem cited by a negative review was the poor writing: “When is someone going to write Superman so that it does not sound like the same writers that were writing for him in the 1930’s? This book is full of the same cornball dialogue that has become a plague throughout Superman’s career. Superman grew up human – why not make him sound like it? This book does allow us to see a more human side to Superman – one with fears and an eroding self-confidence. The problem is that this unique storyline is overshadowed by the grade school, dumb it down writing. The story also uses the old fail safe, when it doubt make it Kryptonian safety net. ”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback format available.
  • Sequel to “The Death Of Superman.”

NEGATIVE:

  • Poor writing.

After an attack by H’el, a powerful Kryptonian, Superman visits Lex Luthor in a military prison designed to specifically hold him. General Garrison initially refuses to let Superman meet Lex Luthor, but Superman convinces him. Lex Luthor is held in a containment cube defended by antimatter cannons. H’el has taken control of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude and only the most intelligent mind on Earth can help him. Luthor has a scarred face which was caused by Superman. He reveals to Superman that he is aware of H’el and Superboy.

Superman asks if it is possible to go back in time in order to prevent the destruction of Krypton. Lex Luthor reveals Superman’s mind is second to his. He asks to speak with Superboy which results in an exchange about Superboy’s genetic structure. Luthor reveals it is possible by creating a reverse Big Bang that will destroy the solar system. Luthor tells Superman that the Man of Steel already guessed it, though he meant to ask whether it would have to kill H’el in order to prevent it. Superman and Superboy depart with the Man of Steel contacting the Justice League.

Though Wonder Woman admires Supergirl’s bravery, she has no sympathy for her misguided grief. In the mean time, Superman fights H’el. He scolds H’el for manipulating Supergirl’s grief to his nefarious ends. At that moment, H’el punches Superman into space.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman has managed to tie Supergirl in her Lasso of Truth. She comments that though they are a close match in strength and speed, experience is the difference-maker. This is significant since in Post-Crisis continuity, Supergirl has been stated to be stronger than Superman. Though, however, Superman is ranked as stronger than Wonder Woman by Checkmate.

ORIGIN STORY


200,000 years ago, an alien scientist named Bertron had the dream of creating the Ultimate on Krypton. Early Krypton was very harsh and hostile and the life-forms living there were the deadliest creatures in the universe. The child that would become Doomsday was created by a process of forced evolution. He was exposed to the harsh environment, killed, its remains collected then cloned then the process was repeated a thousand times. Eventually, the creature evolved the ability to come back from the attack that killed it. Doomsday proceeded to eradicate all the harsh life-forms on Krypton.

Per it’s genetic programming, it returned to Bertron’s lab and killed Bertron and all the scientists there. Then it boarded the cargo ship that supplied Bertron’s lab and went to other planets destroying lives.

Doomsday ended up on Calaton, a very scientifically advanced world. For three years it laid waste to the planet until it reached the capital. The scientists worked to devise a solution and finally, the members of the Royal family who had meta human abilities were merged into the being called the Radiant. For a week, he battled Doomsday until in an all-out energy attack he was able to kill the creature. Doomsday was bound but its body was not destroyed to prevent it from entering the afterlife and sent into space. It crash-landed on Earth, buried deep within its mantle.1

DOOMSDAY AND SUPERMAN DIE IN BATTLE IN METROPOLIS
