In Superman #38, Superman in his battle with Ulysses unleashes the super flare, that releases all the energy stored in his cells and makes him human for 24 hours.

From IGN:

In the pages of today’s Superman #38, Superman’s discovered he has a new “super flare” power where he expels all of the energy in his cells to create a bright, powerful blast capable of incinerating everything within a quarter mile. The downside — aside from the mass destruction — is that using the super flare ability depletes his cells, essentially making Superman human for 24 hours.

During his fight with Ulysses, a meta-human who can absorb energy, Superman blasted Ulysses with heat vision that Ulysses absorbed which resulted in Superman unleashing his Super Flare, as he started to glow. (Superman’s New Super Flare Power and Costume Revealed)

The fight resulted in the destruction of Superman’s armor costume in the New 52 multiverse which was created as a Kryptonian nano-tech armor that would cover his body, and the creation of a new costume.

At the end of the comic book, Superman reveals his secret identity to Jimmy Olsen: “I’m Superman Jim.”

Super Power: Super-Strength

What super power do you want?

Today, we take a look at super strength. In DC comics, there what is called the “superhero brick type”, an assortment of Superman-type characters that have various powers such as super strength, super speed, flight, invulnerability, and energy projection.

These characters include Superman, Captain Marvel/Shazam, and Martian Manhunter, as well as members of the Captain Marvel family.

In the case of Captain Marvel, his super strength is a gift of the Olympian gods. He is blessed with the powers of the gods by speaking the name SHAZAM which stands for the Wisdom of Solomon, the Strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles and the Speed of Mercury.

Captain Marvel owes his super strength to Olympian magic, derived specifically from the demi-god Hercules. He is on par with Superman physically, and able to perform similar feats such as in Superman Beyond #1 lifting with Superman in Limbo the Book of Limbo, a book with infinite pages.

SUPER FEAT: In ‘Final Crisis: Superman Beyond’ (2008) #1, Captain Marvel helped by Superman lifts the Book of Limbo, a book with infinite pages.

Super feats of super strength are par for the course in comic books and they are displayed everyday by everyday people. We must always remember that we are all super strong, or at least, strong enough to overcome any challenge. We simply have to work at it! And apply our God-given talents!
