Well, you have to remember that no one has a magical weakness. It's such a trippy deal when it comes to Superman, because since magic can affect him, it's seen as a weakness and not just magic, which can affect anyone.

From my olde D & D days, we would have called what Superman displays, magical resistance. I doubt any human could survive a strike from Captain Marvel's lightening bolt, but Superman has withstood several. He's not invulnerable to it, but he has great resistance. a sword of sharpness would kill a regular lad, but that would only be able to cut or wound Superman, and he still has super-speed and strength to snatch and break the blade. Dragon's fire shouldn't hurt him at all, but even then, Superman would withstand it, then blow it away, freeze it, knock the dragon out, etc.

Unless it's some really heavy-duty magic, and the spells are specifically designed and aimed at Superman a la Mxylptlk (I don't care what you say, it was magic!), it's not something he cannot overcome and with relative ease.

My jury' still out on Superman doing any spell casting though.

My understanding on his magic weakness is that it is really a relative weakness, as simply stating that he is not immune to it, like he is most physical force!

And he is the same as anyone else exposed to it, as can be affected same way...

And regardless if Mxy uses tech/science or magic, his power is so extreme FEW can resist it!

Would be funny to see what would happen to kal if he donned Dr fate helmet though!
