List Rules Vote up the best of the Man of Steel's many superpowers, both awesome and absurd!

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Super-Ambiguous-Power-Set Man! Superman, the Man of Steel, doesn't just have a core set of powers, he has just about any power you can dream up. What are the most awesome of Superman's epic (and sometimes epically ridiculous) powers?

More powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound - that's how it started. Slowly, over time, something happened, the Man of Steel developed any power the writers needed at the moment, while his weaknesses stayed largely the same. There was a time Superman could literally launch little Supermen out of his fingers to do his bidding. No wonder DC has had so many infinity crises to reboot continuity.

Enjoy the weirdest, the wackiest, the silliest of Superman's powers to make it to print. This is a list of ALL of Superman's powers, even the completely crazy ones.
