How you would use Superman's powers to save the world,if you had to?

In what creatively and/or humorously witty way/s, would you use Superman's powers to save the world today, if you had them and had to.

Superman is a robot?

Use the heat vision thingy to destroy toxic waste dumps, in fact destroy all the enormous land fills in general. Might seem a relatively small move, but it would be a step in the right direction.

I'd outlaw war and pollution. Either it'll work or I'll be a common threat for the world uniting it. Win win.

Well, I'd fly around the Earth so fast that it'd reverse its rotation....

You beat me to this response.

I would actually fly all the politicians to a deserted island and not let them leave until they agreed to actually work for the betterment of their people rather than to boost their own egos.

But you would need a ridiculously big net to carry all of them to the island at the same time.

I would use my heat vision to give everyone lobotomies in order to remove the impulses of evil from man.

I'd gather all of the world's nuclear weapons and chuck them into the sun.

Also, cities decimated by war? No problem! I just use my patented Rebuild-Stuff-Just-By-Staring-At-It vision!

I would remove one tenth of the population, eliminate all Governments and call myself the Master. Kill anyone called the Doctor.

Fit all the continents back together jigsaw style and then let everyone fight it out in vast land wars.

Makes note to avoid getting PhD if Snick gets Superman powers.

One of Superman's more underused powers.

Kidding aside I don't think I'd do anything much more than what Superman does. Fly around and stop bad things from happening. Though I wouldn't hold back as much and wouldn't be so adverse to killing people who're obviously irreversibly evil.
