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.]
