I've always thought what makes superman so super was more or less his willpower and conviction. He's definitely one of the more powerful DC superheroes and for that reason alone he has to control himself more then others. Time and time again villains try to make him abuse his powers towards his own personal benefit instead of simply using them for the greater good, and that relatively scares Superman. He knows that if he truly wanted to he could possibly destroy the world, or atleast a good portion of it before the other heroes stop him, and the only thing stopping him is simply his willpower. Thats just my two cents though.


Good post.

I guess it depends on the planet and the kind of sunlight that affects his abilities. I have wondered what humans could do on Krypton since Kryponians on Krypton were powerless.

The problem with depicting Superman as described as having god like powers is the great difficulty putting it in context of dealing with mere mortals. Superman cannot go about slugging villains,(at least human ones), as relative strength wise heads would fly, if you can move mountains you're like to kill most people in a battle. The problem of Superman was done well in the Alex Ross illustrated "Superman Peace on Earth", in the end for all his abilities, it was Clark Kent was a greater force when dealing with the problems of humanity.
