After seeing Superman Returns and some other stuff about the Man of Steel, I have a few questions about this great hero. Of course, some of these probably can’t be answered, but what the heck:
Does Superman need a cape to fly, or is the cape just for show? In Superman Returns, there’s a flashback where Clark Kent jumps through a barn roof and hovers in the air instead of landing on the ground. If he wanted to, could he have flown at that point? If Clark had never figured out that with great power comes gre…I mean, you should help people out and decided to live his live as an ordinary joe with super powers (“Clark Kent is a dick?”), could he just fly around instead of walking the streets of Metropolis? There’s a scene in the original Superman where Clark transforms into Superman in midair.
In Superman Returns, there is a scene in which Superman is stabbed in the side with Kryptonite. We later see a bit of blood on the removed Kryptonite. If Superman gets stabbed or wounded (which could presumably only happen with Kryptonite), would it leave a wound when removed, or would it heal itself?
Let’s take the title of the love theme from Superman literally: Can Superman read my mind- or anyone else’s, for that matter? Is mind-reading among his abilities?
