I feel like I live in a world made of cardboard, always taking care not to break something, to break someone. Never allowing myself to lose control even for a moment, or someone could die. But you can take it, can't you, big man? What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose and show you just how powerful I really am.
~ Superman before pummeling Darkseid


Like his comic counterpart, Superman's true identity is Kal-El, the last surviving Kryptonian. After being taken in by the Kents and (consequently taking the name Clark Kent), he discovered his powers in his teen years when trying to save a young girl from an exploding trailer, he comes to terms with his true identity and later moves to Metropolis as a reporter, in which he gained his moniker after his first escapade. Along with his many solo adventures he is a founding member of the Justice League, forming particularly close relationships with Wonder Woman, Batman, and Martian Manhunter.

Striking Strength: Small City Class

Durability: Small City level (Survived with no injuries, albeit was knocked out, a concentrated full powered blast from the Second Watch Tower's fusion cannon, which is as powerful as a high yield nuclear warhead. The United States Navy and Project Cadmus developed a Kryptonite lined nuclear warhead specifically to take him out as they were not confident in the ability of their nuclear missiles to take him out)

Intelligence: A straight-A student in school and a quick thinker, Superman is a capable brawler and can quickly hunt down would-be evildoers. However, he lacks the specialized knowledge of his comrades (Flash's connections and forensics know-how, Batman's detective skills and technological mastery, Wonder Woman's combat skills, or Martian Manhunter's or Hawkgirl's knowledge of alien races).

Weaknesses: Kryptonite and Red Sunlight weaken him while Magic bypasses his natural durability; usually holds back to avoid killing his targets
