So no votes for "re-build a wall by looking at it real hard-vision"?

Re: Favorite Superman Superfeats?

I think that and most of the other random new powers in Superman IV were due to its low budget. The comic book adaptation has him rebuilding the Great Wall at super speed.

Its almost impossible for me to give a single answer on this one. Young Clark racing the train. I too love that fight between Clark and the Evil Superman.

I like the "bullet stop" scene in Superman Returns. To my memory, it's the most bullets we've seen live-action Superman shrug off. And to culminate with him being shot in the eye was great (seeing as how, again, to my memory, we've never seen that trick before).

This is by far my favorite "super" moment in all the TV shows and movies. He didn't even blink.

My biggest fear with the new "Man of Steel", is that they are going to tamp down Superman's powers in a effort to make him easier to relate to as a "human".

Masonry Vision (as per the movie) or Super Architecture (as per the comic)...

There is really nothing that can redeem that scene!

On his way to Luthor's lair for the first time in the first movie, underground just before the first and ice, I think even more bullets were fired at him.

It's a little off topic, but since I started this, I know it's okay. That whole movie was so sad, since it seems to me that all of the actors were really trying hard to make a good movie. Their performances were fine, and they tried to put heart into it. It could have been one of the best Superman movies, but TPTB just screwed it up something awful.

You're right, it wouldn't have taken much to make it a serious movie. Maybe then we might have had a few more movies out of the franchise.

That airplane rescue from Superman Returns.


The bullet stop was nice as well, but it was also way too super. There's only that much of disbelief I can suspend.

My favorite moment involving Kryptonian powers in Superman Returns...

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.

Sorry, not canon! In the movie he rebuilds the wall by looking at it really intensely!

It must be widespread, then, because pretty much every other superhero (and villain) who can fly, also hovers!

I'll have to re-watch that scene, it's been so long since I've sat down to watch Superman: The Movie. It's one of the movies that is on Netflix Instant Viewing for a while, then off, then on again. Currently, it's not available, but the next time it's back, I might sit down to watch it again.
