I expect that in the new 52, he is strong, but not invinsible - a bomb would hurt, a body slam by a train off guard would hurt. But, like once stated, if he is truly that song, bench pressing the world, surely the world to him would be lke walking through a city made of tissue..
Good point, one that's always made me curious. Even if Supes wasn't strong enough to bench the earth, it's still as if he's walking through a world made of tissue. I'd be curious to read stories that expand on that kind of angle; what exactly it must be like to be Superman and how he has to constantly be on his guard when in disguise, like walking constantly on ice.
