Re: Superman's power level - Part 1
I really don't see how Supes needs to be any more powerful than say in the Fleischer animations. The only thing I'd add to that is I like him being able to fly in space.
Supes is always as strong as the situation requires it seems but putting a number on it like they seem to be doing in the new 52 is just backing yourself into a corner later.
Morrison got away with it in All-Star cause it was a limited series and he solar overdosed allowing him to reach those silver-age strengths.
I definitely think he should be exerting himself when stopping trains and catching planes and whatnot. It adds to the excitement.
