Not just his ability to fly, but his ability to *hover*. I always wondered how he managed that. Krypton has higher gravity than Earth, we all know that. So Superman's ability to fly, as such, is understandable. But he shouldn't just be able to hover off the ground like that - he's not weightless, just lighter and stronger. Did they ever explain this?
I've always figured it was some type of self-induced telekinesis that allowed him to hover like that, but he's never really demonstrated psychic powers in his long history, as far as I can recall.
It must be widespread, then, because pretty much every other superhero (and villain) who can fly, also hovers!
