1) not alien but rather an genetical experiment
2) Never was a good guy(tortured people while trying to save them)
3) Was afraid of explosion caused by plane

@BattleHeiz: I see what you are saying but there are a lot in this list that don't fit those criteria. Plus they don't have to be exact counterparts of Superman and he was created with the intent of being a Superman parody let's say in the Boys universe.

@BattleHeiz: They were all created based on him, the similar costumes and powers. Others of course resemble him more than others but that is natural. Others are more serious than others.

@BattleHeiz: And Apollo doesn't have a lot of Superman's powers plus he was a normal before becoming like this and he is considered to be Superman's counterpart.

@battleheiz: Hate to tell you this, but you're being nitpicky. All of these characters are either inspired by or are parodies of superman. it doesn't matter what powers they have or their origins. they are all based off superman as a homage to the character or a parody. and it's as simple as that. ComicFan24 is right and you are wrong. They don't have to be exact counterparts of Superman, all that matters if that they were inspired by him and the simple fact is that all of these characters are inspired by Superman. You can say what ever you like. You can say that xy and z hero NEEDS a certain power or origin, but judging by those standards would leave this list near to empty.Invincible, Statesman, Homelander. ALL these characters belong here. If you don't like the list, simply make you're own and let the rest of us enjoy this one.
