Re: Superman's power level - Part 1
Also, I never bought the argument made by Kurosawa and others that Silver-Age uberSuperman was the definitive and intended version of the character because it was the final iteration of the creators. Just because it was the final version, it does not mean it was how they intended the character to be. Arguably, Superman just became Silver-Age Superman in terms of power level simply because of the ongoing nature of comics as a medium. Writers had to increasing raise the stakes because readers became used/bored to previous superfeats and they were no longer special. it could have just been a case of trying to continually blow up the balloon to keep your audience entertained.
