    Questions regarding how Superman's powers work and what role Krypton's gravity has on him rumble on eternally, writers still like to remind us that Krypton's high gravity plays a part in what he can do but never actually explain what it is that the gravity differential does for him...
    But check out one of the earliest Superman Origins and actually, it all makes a neat sort of sense:

    Now that's how it should be. \(pirate\)


...every writer, without a single exception, forgets about Krypton's higher gravity, placing Superman's strength down to a normal human. x\(

I mean, think about it. Even without powers, Superman should still have some measure of Super Strength. But he never does when he loses his powers. \:\(





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
