3 – Powers Part 1 – Super Hearing and X-Ray Vision

coverblackThis is the first of a three part series where we cover those abilities, traits, and powers that set Superman part in the Man of Steel.  In this episode, we cover:

  1. Natural Born Kryptonian
  2. Kryptonian Codex
  3. Respiratory Adaptation
  4. Genetic Memory
  5. Super Hearing
  6. X-Ray Vision

While covering our topics, we will discuss and answer the following questions:

  • What kind of baggage did Jor-El have preventing him from coming to Earth?
  • How could Jax-Ur discover the Codex was bonded to Kal-El from a blood sample but be unable to recover the Codex from the sample?
  • How could the Codex be bonded to Kal-El?  Why did the film show us blood cells?  How could that work?
  • Is there evidence Superman can use his powers without breathing?
  • As a child, who was Clark imitating by wearing a cape?
  • If Superman has super hearing, how does he get surprised?
  • What is the maximum range of super hearing?  What does auditory omniscience mean?
  • Can Superman use his X-Ray Vision to uncover Batman’s secret identity in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice?

…and more!

[EDIT: I totally forgot about the interrogation scene where Superman is able to read Hamilton’s ID card!  That changed the X-Ray Vision analysis some.]

“Holding Kryptonite” Interview & Review

Steve Younis and Michael Bailey of Radio KAL Live and have a brilliant interview with the authors of “Holding Kryptonite” which provides incredible insight into the first ten years of Superman’s creation through the lens of correspondence between DC and Superman’s creators. The correspondence was literally recovered from the an old legal file set to be thrown into the trash, recovered by a neighboring legal assistant to serendipitously saved the file to share with the world! Michael and Steve were kind enough to ask a few of my questions to the authors and the interview is a must-listen.

I finished reading this book over the weekend… read more

Why Superman and Open World Gaming Don’t Mix

How to make players act like Superman without resenting restriction?

Superman is more than mechanics.  A game must prevent players from resenting restriction and the people of Metropolis. Can a players be instilled with the feelings, attitudes, and values of the noble Superman?

I appreciate the thoughtfulness with which many approached the issue of an open-world Superman game. However, I respectfully dissent that such a game would be well-received by general audiences. I’ve reflected since the 2005, anticipating Superman Returns, and believe that Superman and open-world gaming do not mix… yet.

The appeal of open-world gaming comes from balancing:
