I liked the implied explanation that while the Superman did not change Himself, the Universe was rebooted after COIE, and under differewnt laws of reality, he was not allowed to be PC pwerful any more!


It wasn't just Superman who was scaled back - so was The Flash. Before the Crisis Barry Allen could run at multi lightspeed, after it he was retroactively scaled back to just the speed of light as a maximum. There seemed to be a change in the DCU physics where Newton's rules of physics were applied and suddenly no one could exceed the speed of light (bar the Pocket Universe Superboy and Mon-el apparently!).
