Now many you have said that Superman Prime cannot breathe in space because their is no air, however, we know that comics don't follow reality. The link I copied below from a previous post clearly shows Superman Prime in space at the Source Wall....talking to Mxy. Appears to be his temporary home, or sorts. Now, Lobo can breathe in space, why can't Superman Prime?

On a side note, my partner is due to give birth to our 2nd child. Now, I don't know if its going to be a boy or a girl but if it's a boy, I want to convince her to name the kid Kon-El. First or middle name, any suggestions for a winning argument?

Pre-Crisis, it wasn't that the Earth-1 Superman could breathe in space, but rather that he didn't NEED to breathe.

Post-Crisis that changed, and Superman did need air. I remember being shocked the time I read him say something like "If I run out of air, I'll die".

At the time I hoped it was just a guess on his part, and he didn't realize he didn't need air.

PrimeSlime's powers are a little unclear, since he's a pre-Crisis character. Do the pre-Crisis rules apply or not?

Since the mainstream Superman can at least SURVIVE in space for a long time just by taking in a huge amount of air, we can assume that PrimeSlime can at least do that, if not just go without air entirely.

In the months following his resurrection, Superman's powers began to increase, though for a short time. During this period, his ability to survive in space had changed. His blood was now oxygenated (sp), thus he didn't have to hold his breath for an hour or two, in order to travel underwater or in deep space. Since then, he hasn't had to worry about finding or carrying an oxygen source. Though I haven't read all the stories from 1998-2006, I believe this has remained in effect. So I wager that Superman-Prime can either hold his breath for a long time, as he did in the Pre-Crisis days or he's like Clark now, who has oxygenated (sp) blood while in space.

Uh...no. Prime acts on an entirely different level from today's Superman. He simply doesnt need air. Pre-Crisis Supermen after the golden age didnt need to hold their breaths. They didnt need air period.

Isn't this like asking, "If oranges can sing, why can't bananas?"? No one can breathe unassisted in space for the exact reason you stated -- there's no oxygen. Real-world laws of physics in this area are broken frequently in comics. Characters have even been shown talking unassisted in space. Again, that flies in the face of real-world physics. But, regardless, I think the question you want to ask is "Lobo survive in space, why can't Superboy Prime?" And that brings me back to my original question: Isn't this like asking, "If oranges can sing, why can't bananas?"? They're two seperate species. From two seperate universes. In two seperate continuites.

Never argue with a woman. It's a losing battle.

Argue about something else. That's your ONE hope for a winning argument. \:\)

Change your OWN name to Kon-El. You'll never get her to agree with your desires, and you'll spare yourself one HECK of a headache! \:\)

So, I'm not suggesting that you DO this, I'm merely telling a story, but here goes:

A friend of mine family has a tradition of having the intials M.J. However, his mother did not want to name their second child anything to do with M.J. The father did. How did he get his way?

He published a 'Birth Announcement' in the newspaper with the name Martin James while his wife was recovering in the hospital. That way, when it came time to do the birth certificate, everyone already thought the kid was named Martin and had sent congratulations and such.

Needless to say, it worked. It was underhanded, and she was (rightly) mad at him. Just reminded me of that story.
