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?

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.
