Superman-by-jim-lee-jpgw389

The welfare of Earth and all its people will always be my primary concern. But if there is a solution of hunger, it must be one that comes from the compassionate heart of man and extends outward toward his fellow man. There's an old saying: 'Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him to fish and he eats for a lifetime.' That simple message asks humankind to nurture with knowledge, to reach out to those in need and inspire others to do the same. That is life's greatest necessity and its most precious gift.
~ Superman

I feel like I live in a world made out of cardboard. Always taking constant care not to break something, to break someone. What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose and show you just how powerful I really am.
~ Superman to Darkseid

Something happened in Africa. Something pretty awful. But for a minute - just one minute, and for the first time - i got called upon to give my all. to have purpose. Like I was finally part of something rather than standing alone on the sidelines. like I was connected to the world... and man I want to feel that way again. That means no longer running from who I really am.
~ Superman

Superman where are you now. When everything's gone wrong somehow. The men of steel, men of power. Are losing control by the hour.
~ GENESIS - Land of Confusion

Yes, they did see. They saw the ugliness of violence as a solution and it frightened them. It frightened me too when I decided to cross that line and do what you do. It's so easy. Anger... vengeance. Luckily, I'm not you [Manchester Black]. And I never will be.
~ Superman vs The Elites

Kal-El, Earth name Clark Kent, is the Kryptonian known as Superman. He is a superhero from DC Comics. He previously fought Goku in the 25th episode of Death Battle, Goku VS Superman, he would fight Goku again in a rematch. He also faced Saitama in the Season 3 Finale of One Minute Melee.

History

While the individual details vary, certain key elements have remained consistent in almost all retellings.

Superman is born Kal-El on the alien planet Krypton. His parents, Jor-El and Lara become aware of Krypton's impending destruction and Jor-El begins constructing a spacecraft that would carry Kal-El to Earth. During Krypton's last moments, Jor-El places young Kal-El in the spacecraft and launches it. Jor-El and Lara die as the spacecraft barely escapes Krypton's fate. The explosion transforms planetary debris into kryptonite, a radioactive substance that is lethal to superpowered (as by Earth's yellow sun) Kryptonians.

The spacecraft lands in the rural United States, where it is found by a passing motorist. Jonathan and Martha Kent adopt Kal-El and name him Clark Kent. As Clark grows up on Earth, he and his adoptive parents discover that he has superhuman powers. The Kents teach Clark to use these powers responsibly to help others and fight crime.

Clark keeps his powers secret in order to protect his family and friends, who might be endangered by his criminal enemies. In order to use his powers to help humanity, Clark creates the alter ego of Superman. A number of elements are added to each identity to keep them distinct enough to prevent the casual observer from matching them. Superman wears a characteristic red and blue costume with a letter "S" emblem and a cape. Clark Kent takes to wearing glasses, styling his hair differently, changing his body language, significantly altering his voice, and wearing looser clothing and suits that hide his physique.

Clark Kent moves to Metropolis and takes a job as a reporter at the Daily Planet, where he meets his friends and co-workers, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and Editor Perry White. Superman becomes the subject of frequent headline stories written by Lois, and the two become romantically attracted to each other.

Death Battle Fanon (Info)

General Info (data that applies to multiple, or most, if not all versions of Superman)

  • Name: Clark Kent (Real name: Kal-El)
  • Race: Kryptonian
  • Gender: Male
  • Occupation: Superhero, Reporter, Journalist, One of the Founding Members of the Justice League

Physical Abilities

  • Kryptonian Physiology: As a Kryptonian, Superman's powers rely on his cells' ability to absorb and metabolize solar energy from yellow stars like Earth's Sun. His Kryptonian body is a living "solar battery" that absorbs solar energies and converts them to fuel for vast superhuman abilities that wouldn't otherwise be afforded under Rao, Krypton's red supergiant. His cells also store yellow sun energy so he can use his powers under objects, at night, in dark places, and in space. Pre-Crisis, yellow stars were said to emit "ultra solar rays" which enabled Kryptonians' superpowers; penetrating the Earth itself, said rays also enabled Kryptonians to stay super-powered at night. Post-Crisis, it is the overall high intensity of yellow solar radiation, versus the far weaker red solar radiation of Krypton's sun, that is shown as causing Kryptonians' superpowers. The more yellow star rays Superman absorbs the stronger he gets; in some instances he has been shown to enter the sun in order to increase his powers to their highest potentials. Superman can also absorb solar energies of other class stars such as white stars and also when he absorbed the solar energies of a blue star that increased his abilities to a higher degree and gave him additional abilities. The light of dwarf stars, pulsars, and quasars also grants Superman different abilities. However, he cannot gain enhanced abilities from the energy of red stars; various reasons have been given for this.
    • Superhuman Strength: Enhanced physical strength infinitely above that of a human and even most super-humans, making him "more powerful than a locomotive," is one of Superman's signature powers and has often been described as chief among his other abilities. Superman has consistently been shown to have strength levels that would rank as "Class 100+" on the Marvel Comics Power Grid. Depictions of the upper limit of how much weight he can lift have ranged from being able to do the work of several laborers in half the time, crush diamonds in his grasp, lift objects hundreds of times his own weight including any sized vehicle over his head, bend steel with his bare hands, and lifting mountains, even lifting the weight of Earth for days without rest or sunlight. It is possible that Superman's powers have no upper bound as long as there are stars or star like objects.
    • Superhuman Speed: Another one of Superman's signature abilities is his superhuman speed, allowing him to move, react, run and fly faster than the human eye can perceive. It was originally—and famously—classified as being "faster than a speeding bullet," allowing him to catch bullets in mid-air before they hit him, or anyone else. His top speeds have ranged from nearly a hundred miles per hour when he was first created in the 1930s to speeds surpassing the speed of light. His thoughts, perceptions and reflexes are also accelerated to be able to control his actions while moving at high speeds and being able to perceive the world in slow-motion. Superman's running speed has often been shown to be on par with that of The Flash's.
    • Superhuman Durability/Invulnerability: Immunity to almost all forms of harm and ailments, including extreme force and extremely high temperatures. Explanations for this ability have ranged from Kryptonians having a molecular structure with a density superior to that of titanium and having strong bonds within the cells of his body that cannot be pulled apart.

Powers and Abilities

  • Superhuman Breath: The ability to inhale and exhale huge volumes of air with great force, capable of extinguishing large fires and moving heavy objects such as cars. Super-breath also allows Superman to hold his breath for extended periods in airless environments. The release (exhalation) of highly compressed air through a valve (such as pursed lips) causes it to drop radically in temperature. This is known as the Joule–Thomson effect, and when Superman does this, it is usually referred to as Freeze Breath, Freezing Breath, Arctic Breath, or Ice Breath, and can cool almost anything to sub-zero temperatures and freeze air moisture solid, effectively creating ice.
  • Healing Factor: Superman is shown, especially in recent comics, to possess remarkable recuperative powers that allow him to quickly heal from wounds and makes him immune to all forms of human or Earthly diseases, illnesses, viruses and toxins. Superman heals faster when he is closer to the sun and absorbing more solar rays. Once, when his body was hit with the full force of a nuke, he absorbed solar energy from the plant life around him, re-energizing him, but killing the plants around him.
  • True Flight: Because Earth and the Sun exhibits less gravitational pull than that of Krypton, and also due to his solar-powered body, the Man of Steel can also alter his personal mono-directional gravity field to propel himself through the air and through outer space at will.
  • Superhuman Senses:
    • X-Ray Vision – The ability to see through solid objects, usually with the exception of lead. Early stories assumed that hiding objects in lead would prevent him from finding them; however, more modern stories have Superman being able to take advantage of lead's x-ray opacity to do a wide scan of an area with his X-Ray vision in which the lead objects become immediately visible and then narrow his search to those specific locations. Explanations for how this power works vary, but rarely include the emission and perception of actual X-Rays, as such high-energy radiation would actually be dangerous to living things on which he uses it. Another theory involves being able to see and concentrate on the patterns of natural cosmic radiation as it reverberates off objects. X-Ray vision was first used by Superman in Action Comics #11 (April 1939), where it was called "Superman's X-ray eyesight."
    • Superhuman Hearing – Can hear far more sounds with far more detail and at far greater distances than normally humanly possible, including sounds on frequencies undetectable by humans such as dog whistles. Superman is able to mentally screen out most of these sounds to be able to function normally, even in a noisy environment, and can focus in on specific things, like a person's voice or heartbeat, even if they are in another part of the city. He can sometimes be shown to hear sounds on other planets, which makes it likely that his hearing is fundamentally different from that of a human, as sound cannot travel through the vacuum of space. Like humans and most animals, he is skilled at automatically noticing his own name out of the jumble of several overheard conversations, making him adept at quickly responding to calls of distress all over the city.
    • Superhuman Vision – His senses grant him the ability to see farther and with greater accuracy and detail than humanly possible. Sometimes includes the ability to see EM frequencies invisible to humans, such as radio transmissions, infrared light, and the bioelectric aura which surrounds all living things, even in pitch-black darkness. Offshoots of this power include Telescopic Vision, which allows him to "zoom in" on far away objects, sometimes hundreds of miles away, and Microscopic Vision, which allows him to zoom in on objects that would normally be too small to see, like those on a cellular or molecular level.
    • Superhuman Olfaction – A heightened and highly accurate sense of smell comparable to some animals such as dogs. Can be used to detect things like the chemicals in a bomb hidden somewhere in a crowded room. Not all versions of Superman display this power.
    • Vocal Abilities — Superman has shown possession of various vocal abilities. Stories have shown him being capable of raising his voice to loudspeaker levels, for purposes such as delivering a message to a large crowd.
    • 4d vision- Superman can adjust his vision to see other dimensions.
  • Heat Vision: the ability to emit solar energy from his eyes. This usually resembles bright red or orange laser-like beams, which may be invisible at low temperatures but extremely bright at high ones. The effective range of his beams are hundreds of feet. It can also reach hundreds of miles wide, instantly disintegrating a person, and creating a destructive wave of heat capable of wiping out an army of Doomsdays in seconds (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse). In addition to varying the beam width, height, and intensity, Superman has demonstrated a high degree of skill and accuracy in manipulating his beam, being able to use this power with surgical precision and at microscopic levels. Superman can lobotomize or excise someone's psionic powers as shown in The Elite when he cut off Manchester Black's powers, or performing a brain surgery on himself. Since the power can be used invisibly, Superman often takes advantage of that to perform tasks subtly without needing to get into costume. In some versions, these beams can also be used to rapidly expand air or other matter to produce great concussive force. The beams are tremendously powerful, and can be used to rupture steel plates and pulverize rock. Also in some stories, it can be reflected like a true laser, able to use great skill and accuracy in manipulating the blasts off multiple targets in rapid succession, or more mundanely to remove his very durable facial hair. Sometimes shown to be one of his more physically draining powers to use, as it uses such concentrated solar energy. In the Pre-Crisis stories, Clark wears glasses with lenses made of Kryptonian glass (initially salvaged from his rocket ship's transparency dome) so he can fire his heat vision through them without damaging them. In the stories from the 1986 relaunch onward, Clark wears glasses with regular lenses, which force Clark to momentarily lift them out of his eyes' firing arc to use his heat vision effectively. In revision in Superman: Secret Origin, Clark wears glasses with Kryptonian glass that are intended to contain unwanted firings. Heat vision was initially introduced as "the heat of his x-ray vision" (a byproduct of his existing x-ray vision powers) in Superman (vol. 1) #59 (July 1949); heat vision as a separate power first appeared in Action Comics #275 (April 1961).
  • Bio-Electric Aura Manipulation: Superman can manipulate his bio-electric aura to form a forcefield to protect himself and others.

Weaknesses and Faults

  • Avoids using his full power to not harm civilians or to not accidentally kill his enemy (unless he has no other choice)
  • Will not moves/fights at great speeds in Earth's atmosphere and his super-senses are not always active: hence why Superman cannot be availible to stop all crime in the world. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/12/123129/2873156-450900-07_super.jpg http://static6.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/8/81805/1627991-supes2.jpg
  • Goes out of his way to save others no matter the risk, including saving some of his villains
  • Tends to negotiate with his enemies to prevent a fight from starting
  • Kills only if he has no other choice (Zod, Doomsday).
  • Even at full power; Superman's indestructibility has exploitable weaknesses
    • Kryptonite (various types)
    • Vulnerable to magical attacks (though he has been trained by Zatanna to be more resistant to magic)
      • Magic is able to harm Superman, but most magical attacks do not instantly kill him. He can still tank damage, especially with his healing factor.
      • There are two reasons why magic affects Superman; Magic, like kryptonite, creates a unique type of radiation that harms kryptonians. Also magic in general does not follow the strict laws of reality.
      • Realitywarpers like Mxyzptlk can effortlessly overwhelm him.
    • Red star radiation (reduces Superman to peak human condition)
      • This is best done indoors with artificial red sunlight; as Superman can instantly regain his powers if exposed to yellow sunlight.
    • Other Kryptonians or others characters of godlike or nigh infinite power are sometimes able to harm him, even when Superman is depicted at his strongest [23].
      • Likewise characters akin to Kryptonians also share this trait including Doomsday (sometimes depicted as a prehistoric Kryptonian or infused with modern Kryptonian DNA), and Bizzaro Kryptonians.
      • The Injustice 'Kryptonian Pill' functions the same way (giving people Kryptonian physique), hence why once normal humans like Alfred were able to defeat Superman in a duel [24].
    • Sometimes depicted as being vulnerable to a nuclear bomb due to its radiation.
    • Attacks that bypass or ignore his indestructible skin can still harm him. (Superman vs the Elites: Manchester Black used his psychic attacks to attack Superman's internal organs).
    • Evolving, adapting or copying characters like Doomsday, Parasite or Amazo can develop their powers or weapons to bypass Superman's indestructible skin.
    • Superman has several other obscure or outlier weaknesses. Again, what Superman is weak to varies on the writer.
  • Has been defeated by physically inferior enemies; frequently due to the aforementioned weakness exploitation.
    • For example, the majority of his losses against Batman involved Batman using kryptonite.
    • Superman's loss against Muhammad Ali was due to the boxing ring being put under a red sunlight: thus eliminating Superman's superpowers.
  • Cannot see through lead
    • Lex Luthor has used this to hide certain things from Superman.
  • a time, you washed the brain to star in a porn video with Big Barda (no, not is a joke).
  • He was 'killed' by Doomsday
  • Will eventually decrease in power if out of sunlight for too long and taking too much damage.
  • Despite his intelligence; he can be outsmarted by Lex Luthor and Batman.
  • Certain alien nectars can make him gain 4000 lbs [25] [26].
  • On multiple occasions has been guilty of superdickery [27]
  • In some multiverses; has became a Nazi [28] [29]
  • Trials... [30] [31] [32]
  • Lost a tug-of-war to Robin, SOMEHOW [33].

Kingdom Come

Physical Abilities

  • Kryptonian Physiology: As a Kryptonian, Superman's powers rely on his cells' ability to absorb and metabolize solar energy from yellow stars like Earth's Sun. His Kryptonian body is a living "solar battery" that absorbs solar energies and converts them to fuel for vast superhuman abilities that wouldn't otherwise be afforded under Rao, Krypton's red supergiant. His cells also store yellow sun energy so he can use his powers under objects, at night, in dark places, and in space.
    • Superhuman Strength: Enhanced physical strength far above that of a human and even most super-humans, making him "more powerful than a locomotive," is one of Superman's signature powers and has often been described as chief among his other abilities.
    • Superhuman Speed: Another one of Superman's signature abilities is his superhuman speed, allowing him to move, react, run and fly faster than the human eye can perceive. It was originally—and famously—classified as being "faster than a speeding bullet," allowing him to catch bullets in mid-air before they hit him, or anyone else. His top speeds have ranged from nearly a hundred miles per hour when he was first created in the 1930s to speeds surpassing the speed of light. His thoughts, perceptions and reflexes are also accelerated to be able to control his actions while moving at high speeds and being able to perceive the world in slow-motion.
    • Superhuman Durability/Invulnerability: Immunity to almost all forms of harm and ailments, including extreme force and extremely high temperatures.

Powers and Abilities

  • Superhuman Breath: The ability to inhale and exhale huge volumes of air with great force, capable of extinguishing large fires and moving heavy objects such as cars. Super-breath also allows Superman to hold his breath for extended periods in airless environments. The release (exhalation) of highly compressed air through a valve (such as pursed lips) causes it to drop radically in temperature. This is known as the Joule–Thomson effect, and when Superman does this, it is usually referred to as Freeze Breath, Freezing Breath, Arctic Breath, or Ice Breath, and can cool almost anything to sub-zero temperatures and freeze air moisture solid, effectively creating ice.
  • Healing Factor: Superman is shown, especially in recent comics, to possess remarkable recuperative powers that allow him to quickly heal from wounds and makes him immune to all forms of human or Earthly diseases, illnesses, viruses and toxins. Superman heals faster when he is closer to the sun and absorbing more solar rays. Once, when his body was hit with the full force of a nuke, he absorbed solar energy from the plant life around him, re-energizing him, but killing the plants around him.
  • True Flight: Because Earth and the Sun exhibits less gravitational pull than that of Krypton, and also due to his solar-powered body, the Man of Steel can also alter his personal mono-directional gravity field to propel himself through the air and through outer space at will.
  • Superhuman Senses:
    • X-Ray Vision – The ability to see through solid objects, usually with the exception of lead. Early stories assumed that hiding objects in lead would prevent him from finding them; however, more modern stories have Superman being able to take advantage of lead's x-ray opacity to do a wide scan of an area with his X-Ray vision in which the lead objects become immediately visible and then narrow his search to those specific locations. Explanations for how this power works vary, but rarely include the emission and perception of actual X-Rays, as such high-energy radiation would actually be dangerous to living things on which he uses it. Another theory involves being able to see and concentrate on the patterns of natural cosmic radiation as it reverberates off objects. X-Ray vision was first used by Superman in Action Comics #11 (April 1939), where it was called "Superman's X-ray eyesight."
    • Superhuman Hearing – Can hear far more sounds with far more detail and at far greater distances than normally humanly possible, including sounds on frequencies undetectable by humans such as dog whistles. Superman is able to mentally screen out most of these sounds to be able to function normally, even in a noisy environment, and can focus in on specific things, like a person's voice or heartbeat, even if they are in another part of the city. He can sometimes be shown to hear sounds on other planets, which makes it likely that his hearing is fundamentally different from that of a human, as sound cannot travel through the vacuum of space. Like humans and most animals, he is skilled at automatically noticing his own name out of the jumble of several overheard conversations, making him adept at quickly responding to calls of distress all over the city.
    • Superhuman Vision – His senses grant him the ability to see farther and with greater accuracy and detail than humanly possible. Sometimes includes the ability to see EM frequencies invisible to humans, such as radio transmissions, infrared light, and the bioelectric aura which surrounds all living things, even in pitch-black darkness. Offshoots of this power include Telescopic Vision, which allows him to "zoom in" on far away objects, sometimes hundreds of miles away, and Microscopic Vision, which allows him to zoom in on objects that would normally be too small to see, like those on a cellular or molecular level.
    • Superhuman Olfaction – A heightened and highly accurate sense of smell comparable to some animals such as dogs. Can be used to detect things like the chemicals in a bomb hidden somewhere in a crowded room. Not all versions of Superman display this power.
    • Vocal Abilities — Superman has shown possession of various vocal abilities. Stories have shown him being capable of raising his voice to loudspeaker levels, for purposes such as delivering a message to a large crowd.
  • Heat Vision: the ability to emit solar energy from his eyes. This usually resembles bright red or orange laser-like beams, which may be invisible at low temperatures but extremely bright at high ones. The effective range of his beams are hundreds of feet. It can also reach hundreds of miles wide, instantly disintegrating a person, and creating a destructive wave of heat. In addition to varying the beam width, height, and intensity, Superman has demonstrated a high degree of skill and accuracy in manipulating his beam, being able to use this power with surgical precision and at microscopic levels. In some versions, these beams can also be used to rapidly expand air or other matter to produce great concussive force. The beams are tremendously powerful, and can be used to rupture steel plates and pulverize rock. Also in some stories, it can be reflected like a true laser, able to use great skill and accuracy in manipulating the blasts off multiple targets in rapid succession, or more mundanely to remove his very durable facial hair. Sometimes shown to be one of his more physically draining powers to use, as it uses such concentrated solar energy.
