Kal-El's face.

On a different note, t be honest, I would prefer it if super-breath didn't show up. I have always thought of it as Superman's dumbest power.

Super-strength I can live with, invulnerability, super speed etc no problem if his energy source is the sun. Heat vision, sure, it's really just pyrokinesis.

But super breath ? first, to generate winds he'd have to inhale far more air than his lungs could ever hold.

Second, super cold breath ? When you blow on something it removes heat, chilling it, but how does superman super-cool the air in his lungs ?

Really, these powers are a bit silly, and I'm okay without him having them.
There's plenty he can do already, and what he's got are the core powers
that make Superman who he is.

Yes, I know it's Superman and we have to suspend disbelief, but that's my opinion.

MOS rocked, bring on BM v SM ! Peace.
That was explained in the comics... and has to do with the ability to "breath" in space , his lunges hold so much air (much more than a simple human)... if you know the oxigen that put in the hospital to people who need it is cold, as much as it hurts.. so if the oxygen that the lunges hold gives him the ability to have the "freeze breeze"..
Maybe we have one way in the next movie that explains us as a more physical way...
Glad you liked the movie...
