    I forgot about that, but no legitimate question that has probably been asked before.

    I think that's a superman IV reference when a single strand of his hair held a 10 ton weight.

    You could use Kryptonite scissors or some kind of Red Sunlight device.

    ^ IIRC, in one Superman I've seen onscreen (possibly Lois and Clark) he could only shave by reflecting his heat vision off a mirror.

    I think Byrne established the "burning off his beard" trick.

    Byrne's psionic "explanation" for Supes' powers could have opened the door to a more practical approach to his invulnerability - ie, "reflexively invulnerable," he could choose to be less so when desired - but I don't think Byrne or anyone else ever proposed that.

    What about some kind of upgraded Flowbee?

    ^ ^Yeah it was Bryne that introduced the concept of Clark using his heat vision to shave and that it got continuously difficult each time because his skin would harden. I don't think this concept was continued on as Dennis says.

    I think that he uses a "red sun lamp" in the bathroom - instead of a plain old heat lamp. :biggrin:

    Well, the black Spider-Man can be rationalized by it being a different character as opposed to Peter Parker.

    What makes this even funnier is that Perry WHITE played by a BLACK man! Countdown to Klan entertainment!

    That being said, I think that is a good choice. I can see Fishburne as the character.

    True. But you used the word RATIONALized. That doesn't work with some people.

    I can too.

    The out of the box casting continues to be awesome. If Lex is going to be in this movie, I think they'll go with someone totally unexpected for the role as well.
