Well... maybe to the people who actually believe these feats.


Superman is one of the Big Three of DC Comics and one of, if not the most enduring and prolific comic book character in history. Following his popularity, his powers and abilities are constantly being explored and expanded upon...

Which leads to some of worst cases of plot induced stupidity in all of comic books if not fiction itself. As no rules exists to keep different writers consistent with eachother, Superman is virtually capable of "anything". Thus, here is a list of these incredible feats.

Intelligence: Supergenius (Described as having 1/1000th of the mental capacity of Brainiac, who can process and store the knowledge of over 500 octodecillion beings, meaning Superman is able to process around 1.225e72 bytes of information, memorized the design of the Miracle Machine well enough to reconstruct it by hand. Outsmarted Mr. Mxyzptlk) | Always smarter than his opponent

Weaknesses: Kryptonite (However, he has previously fought a full Kryptonite clone of Doomsday and took a full Kryptonite beating), Red Star Radiation (Though he absorbed what amounts to half a galaxy's worth of Anti-Sunlight, a type of radiation extremely harmful to Kryptonians), Magic (But he’s tanked galaxy vaporizing magic blasts so this doesn’t matter) | Always what his opponent doesn’t have (His weaknesses will never be able to be exploited)

Replace "Earth" with "Omniverse" and then you'd be accurate.

For that matter, every villain ever (See Happy Ending Superman for details)
