This capability thread is for this version of the character which was introduced for the first time in the 2011.

I will try to put all the relevant feats since now in separate sections without violating the rules of this site. For each category the feats will be numered: i will put them in order of magnitude,so the most impressive feat will have the number 1,the second one will have the number 2,..ecc..Of course with the time more feats will come and some of them will be more impressive than the ones i've already put in this thread,so instead of renumbering them all i will simply add another number to them,just to make an example: we have the feat number 2 and the feat number 3 but if i think the new one should be put in the middle it will be the feat number 2.1 of its section. Of course in some cases,especially for the lesser feats, this classification can be purely subjective and i use it just to give this thread a semblance of order. Ok,i will stop being Captain Obvius just right now. Hopefully this thread will get some new people interested with the character and it may be usefull once it is completed for the battle forums...though i haven't done it for that,i like a good respect thread myself and i think they are really helpful if someone just wants to have a good idea of who a character is and see what he/she can do or can not do.

However...lets go.

STRENGTH

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

1 - These images come from two different comics,i have used the first one to better show the size of the ship. The Braniac’s mothership is many times bigger than earth and it was falling towards our planet at 36.000 miles per hour but Superman and Martian Manhunter could overcome that momentum and successfully pushed back this huge ship.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

2-Superman tested his powers into Dr. Veritas's lab which is situated into the core of our planet where he could lift for 5 days straight the equivalent weight of the earth thanks to a graviton matrix without being exposed to the sun’s light and without even reaching the true limits of his strength. Shay Veritas wanted to go even further by opening a pandimensional whormhole in order test his real power but they both agreed that this method was too dangerous since it could suck the whole planet.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5

3 - Immediately after being beaten up by Batman with a chunk of Kryptonite,Superman could easily change the trajectory of Warworld which was going to crash toward earth:he pushed it into the arctic where it could be teleported away into the phantom zone.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

3.1 - Supes is restrained inside the Rao's cathedral. Rao himself who is a kryptonian amped up by billions upon billions of lives, stated that even he is unsure if he could break free from such restraints. However Superman rather than attempting to break free just with brute strength alone he pushes against the restraints and flies the cathedral out of the planet, crashing and destroying it on the moon in few moments,before Rao could stop him.

3.2 - Superman could overpower multiple kryptonians despite the fact they had absorbed enough sunlight to be nearly as strong as he was

STRIKING FORCE

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

1 - This feat is related with the feat number two of the strength category. Dr. Veritas ,after 5 days of tests, could determine Superman's power level just to discover that he can go beyond it in a battle scenario: against H'el Superman used punches so strong that they could topple entire mountains and their shockwaves could be felt from the earth's core to the farthest edges of the atmosphere.

GREAT JOB!

Just one thing tough. When he saved those two ships from crashing into each other with a thunderclap, at the time he didn't fly because he couldn't, but rather he didn't fly because he didn't knew he could fly.

Yeah! I know. It's stupid seeing such contradictions, seeing that in earlier issues of Batman-Superman when Earth-0 Batman and Superman were transported to Earth-2 and met their counterparts, in one of the issues Clark (from Earth-0) knew he had to fly to save Lois (from Earth-2) and he was able to, because he had already seen his counterpart flying. Also in Unchained it was showned that when Clark and Lana were playing, both of them fell from a great hight and instead of hitting the ground it was shown the surprised look on his face when he noticed he was floating in mid air, holding Lana in his arms.

you are welcome...but lets wait for the congratulations since i don't know if i am really respecting all the rules here which are: "don't post full page scans" or " if you really have to don't post more than 3 full pages for issue". However now i am posting just fragments of pages and never full pages,but i don't know yet if i am posting too much panels for a single feat....so before i go on i prefer to be sure about that.

can please someone contact a moderator? so i can understand if what i am doing is legit or not

@toptom: My friend this is truly an awesome and most appreciative endeavour you're taking on here. Thanks a lot for rebuilding MatchesMalone's New 52 Superman respect thread, this is one character I definitely want to be able to access the feats for. If you need any scans, check out my New 52 Superman vs New 52 Wonder Woman CAV, I used a whole bunch there before the new scan rule was imposed. I also have some New 52 Superman feats on my laptop but it's accidentally broken and I'm waiting for the hard drive to be recovered, hopefully with most of my data along with it.

And speaking of the new scan rule, I'm afraid you're in violation of it. It states that no more than 3 pages from a single issue can be used e.g 3 scans from Superman #1, 3 from Superman #2 etc, etc. You're using more than 3 scans in the strength feat collection so the mods will probably cut some out. However, there are ways around the new rule. You can upload the scans to Photobucket or Imugur and link readers to there. Or, if you have the time, effort and patience, you can cut multiple panels from each issue's feats and post them on here. Hope that was helpful and that you can continue this mate.

Thanks mate! however i don't think i've really exceded that 3 pages rule, i mean lets look at the feat n. 1 for example: there are 4 panels there,but the first one (the one with the mothership) isn't from Action Comics # 34 which is the issue that contains the other 3 panels,so i am not taking more than 3 pages from a single comic. Then with the feat n. 15 i've used more than 3 panels but if we put them all together their are not exceeding 3 pages,they can likely cover just 2 pages. So if i can use 3 full pages for feat am i allowed to use more than 3 panels always for the same feat?

Afterwards, Superman only suffers two broken ribs from Wraith's attack.

Here are some calculated ones.

http://www.narutoforums.com/blog.php?b=22011

Respectively the Nu52 Superman one is Number 3

Number three was the Black hole bullets, which each are "199.7255177 exatons per bullet" which means they could destroy the moon 6.74748371 times over.

@jogga: That's not New 52 Superman who moved the Kryptonite moon. It's a story from the digital series "Superman Beyond" which is set in the same universe as the DCAU show Batman Beyond. It's been cited incorrectly before so thought I'd correct you there.

I've also got some extra info on the Lighthouse striking feat for the record. According to Snyder's script in Superman Unchained #1: The Director's Cut, The Lighthouse is supposed to be the size of a small city block. Which makes Superman plowing through it like straw even more impressive.

You are missing tons of other feats.How about the durability feat where susie gets in his head and making him feel the pain of billions of things.

There is the scan where his heat vision is hot as a sun

There tons of other feats that would replace many of the ones you have.

There is also his freeze breath feat with H'el and Ghost Soldier

There is his light speed feat

His Black Hole feat

He has quite a few

When it was told that his hv is as hot as the sun?

As far as I'm concerned that is only in Post-Crisis. And that was more along the lines of the fact that it can't be scientifically measured on how hot it is.

Another big thank you for adding “speed feats”-section. That’s one of the most underrated Superman’s abilities imo.

hi guys! i've a little problem : i've tried to add (for two times now) the "Vision powers" section but once i click on the save button,the site tells me that the saving was done but the thread remains the same

Do you have a solution for this,or do you know someone who can help?

@lvenger: Apparently i can't add any more images : i've already edited this thread two times now with all the images of the vision power section with all their description but once i click on the save button the forum reverts to its former status:it's like if i haven't add or written anything.

I think that happens because i've already put too many images,my initial post is too big and i can't go on,so probably i have simply to continue what i am doing using another post. I don't like the idea very much but all the feats will still be in a single forum nevertheless.

However i've already contacted Rorie and i waiting for his suggestions.

@toptom: awesome thread man. Also if the problem persists, you could just make the new section in a new post.

@toptom: You've covered the major sections in your main post already so if the problem persists, the lesser information will be going in separate posts.

INTELLECT,STRATEGY and OPERATIONAL CAPABILITY

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

1 - Superman could do just in minutes or seconds what a super computer could obtain with years of time: he managed to recreate the image of Krytpon at the moment of its explosion thanks to the data gathered from the telescopes all over the world. Given a single super computer can process a petaflop of date under a second (ability to process 10^15 bit of information under a second) , that puts its operating speed at femptosecond, and we just have the whole idea that Superman process the same data in seconds that would take supercomputer years to process.

7 - Different examples taken from different comics that show us how Superman can approach different situations by using his senses and his intellect, here he examines the surroundings,his enemy's physiology before the fight,some alien tech,the dna of all the people around him.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5

@lvenger Have you seen the feat I posted above from WW 37? It's honestly not saying much, though, it at least shows that Clark is skilled enough to manage in a spar against Diana.

@zandalf: i've just done the Cold breath section,and i've add the feat n. 6 in the reflexes section,it comes from batman-superman 18. I know that i am not putting many scans in these days (more like weeks) but right now i am a little busy with the university :(

@unbreakable_fs4: Thanks! it will go in the Fighting Skill section.

For every one else: if you have got some scans from the recent comics you can post it here in any case,so we'll have again a complete new-52 superman respect thread,with new feats each month.Then if those feast are good enough i can incorporate them in my classification with the time,but neverhteless we will have them all in one forum.
