    I don't know much about superman but i personally think he is WAY overpowered which is why i don't like him. if you look at any battles with him in it he automatically wins especially if were talking SA Supes. no powerhouses in the marvel universe can beat him and hardly anyone in DC can either unless they had kryptonite (which is another reason why i hate him. your insanely strong yet a piece of rock that comes within a 20 ft radius weakens you is a dumb weakness imo). I always wondered why whenever superman faced someone way weaker than he was he didn't just KO him in the beginning and save everyone the trouble (I know they do it for the sake of the story but if they give him that much power than why doesnt he use it?). the only one who i know has killed superman is Doomsday and i don't even know how he managed to do it but i bet it had something to do with kryptonite. Anyways i think they might as well change his name from Superman to Godman seeing as he is SO powerful. 
     
    What do you think of superman? o and for the fanboys out there please tell me who (without kryptonite) defeated superman or who you think is capable of defeating him.

    Even though he isn't, I don't understand why the first superhero in comics can't have a lot of powers. I'm surprised he doesn't have more.

    why did they depower him? like i said the only reason i don't like him is imo he is overpowered. especially when he is in any battle forums, he always ends up winning whether its juggernaut and hulk  or thor or even SS vs superman. The superman fanboys make great arguments and show scans to back them up. i just don't know how he can be beat which is why i don't see the point in him having a comic at least nowadays. but who can beat superman!?

    There are people on his own team (J'onn) who have more powers than him. Then there are people on his team who can beat him despite having less powers (Flash).

    not on the part where he isn't overpowered. but i agree on the fact that since he is one of the first superheroes in comics why wouldn't he have a lot of powers if not more than he already has. my thing is why don't they downgrade him a little more so he seems less god like.

    You sound exactly like every other Superman hater I know. No real reason. Haven't read any story to base him off of. Don't know anything about the character aside from some character stats you've seen online, maybe a few bios you've glanced over. Now if I know the internet well enough, there's gonna be some people coming in here telling you how wrong you are, how you shouldn't judge a character you don't know, and the "have you read a Superman comic" question'll pop up. And if you're truly like every other Superman hater I know, you'll be like "how can anyone like the guy? He's so two dimensional. There's no point to him" yadda yadda. Same game, different players.

    I disagree to a point with you. For one, Superman is overpowered for Earth. If you took Superman away from Earth, he's just an average superhero. Compared to the likes of Silver Surfer and the New Gods, Superman is chump change. Also, outside of our solar system 75% of the universe is red dwarf solar systems. That makes him an average human, no super powers, just normal. Second, Superman isn't even close to Zoom or Storm when it comes to fanboys. I think Superman is probably on par with Thor in terms of actual power. In terms of fanboys he's probably 10x stronger than Thor or Surfer. Zoom is probably the only other character with more rabid fans. The only reason for this is that the typical fanboy uses the speed blitz method as their go to method for winning a battle. Even though Supes can't really speed blitz half of the contestants he's up against in the forums, fanboys love this argument. In terms of actual power, Superman is middle of the pack. In terms of forum fanboys, Supes is top 3.

    I like the idea of Earth having a couple powerhouses. Heck, without Supes, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter (depending on if he's alive or not), and a few GLs, Earth would be at the mercy of dudes like Lobo.

    Another one of these threads... uh.. Doomsday killing him had absolutely NOTHING to do with kryptonite at all. Go read a few Superman comics from the modern age first. Then we'll talk.

    That's because they're written by people who a) haven't read a Superman issue in 40 years, b) are Marvel fanboys, or c) are just plain ignorant. 
     
    Superman isn't overpowered.
     
    People who can put the hurt on him: Darkseid, Orion, Brainiac, Mongul, Cyborg Superman, Superman Prime, Spectre, Wonder Woman, Doomsday, Mxy, Martian Manhunter, Flash, Green Lanterns, Yellow Lanterns, Black Lanterns, Sapphire Lanterns, Indigo Lanters, Red Lanterns, Blue Lanterns, Orange Lanterns, any magic users, Shazam, Metallo, Batman, Aquaman (if the environment serves him correctly), Parasite, Atlas, Zod, Bizarro, Silver Banshee, Lex Luthor and Intergang (with Kryptonite weaponry, usually), and more. 
     
    But no, I'm sure you're right, he's overpowered. (sarcasm bomb).

    Superman being overpowered is subjective depending on your POV. Batman certainly thinks so. That insecure SOB (does anyone have the scan of batman being insecure of Superman's drawing?) Hehehehe. From the cosmic POV, he's not that overpowered. His ability to win comes from his motivation/inspiration/devotion/will. That's the reason he's a hero.
     
    On a side note, which one is more irritating?
     
    "Superman is overpowered.... He can beat anyone... He can kick TOAA's ass that's why he's not cool... What's the point of having a supervillain if he'll get blasted with ease anytime... bla bla bla blah!"
     -rants of an ignorant Superman hater that knows only SA Supes. (I'm not saying the OP is this though, I just hate the haters...) 
     
    ORRRRRRR
     
    "Superman is overrated. Any Marvel top-tier like Thor in base form could beat his arse hands down. He's weak! He's not as strong as people think he is. Sentry (or Goku) will sneeze the life outta him and all of DC. bla bla bla bla blah!"

    @ssejllenrad: i agree i do only know about mostly the MARVEL universe but all i know is SA supes...i dont hate him again but i just think the he would be much more appealing if he wasnt so powerful(at least what fanboys say he can do)...i just think if someone is so powerful but only holds back for the sake of the story is lame...but many people on here seem to think he isnt overpowered even though one person posted that he could move an entire world.... like i said plzz post NON DOOMSDAY COMICS where he gets owned...also i plan on picking up war of supermen comics to see what current supes is capable of and is he is truly overpowered

    Superman is not overpowered. If he is overpowered, then Martian Manhunter is a cosmic entity since he can do everything that Superman does and more.

    To be fair, this has nothing to do with any legitimate win by Batman over Supes... :D Hey you asked for scans... Denotations are yours to give.. :D Kidding. 
     
    I'll look for some scans later on. Try reading The Coming of Atlas . He got pwned there.
