Lately, I've been hearing(more like reading) someone say that. He/She said that Superman destroyed a universe when his "limiters" were removed. Is this true?

I don't have any way of asking him/her, that is why I'm asking this here. If he did destroy a universe, which version of him was it?

I'm not a Superman expert, but I'm going to say no.

Why would he destroy a universe? He's not a Marvel character. He protects, not destroys.

He's using his super speed to break through the barriers of time and space to travel to other times and dimension. He's not destroying anything. It's like breaking the sound barrier doesn't mean you're destroying sound.

if his sneezing can destroy a solar system, then if he really wanted to destroy a galaxy or the universe, he probably can.

@jobbernos: A solar system is tiny compared to a galaxy.

How could a universe be destroyed. Wiped from existence? Yes. (But Superman couldn't do that.) Destroyed? No.

Edit: Most solid objects in a universe could be destroyed. But a universe itself?

Superman lacks a energy attack to cause mass damage like that.

No, not by a long shot, a solar system is not even remotely comparable to a galaxy, let alone the universe. Besides that was SA supes, he was ridiculous and was retconned because of it.

Also regular superman never busted more than a planet I think, was it a planet? or a moon?

No. He has never destroyed a universe.

But if you're looking for a Superman that destroyed not one but several universes then look at Superboy-Prime after he absorved the energies of one of the Guardians of the Universe, that sacrificed his life to try to destroy Superboy-Prime but only managed to send him to another universe and some of his energies were absorved by Superboy and he became a full adult. With all his powers increased beyond the already ridiculous levels he had from the start, and also he had the power to travel through universes. And every universe he traveled to that wasn't the one he came from, he destroyed. Because he had become totally insane.
