As we all know, Superman a.k.a. Kal-El of Krypton, was rocketed from a red sun system to our planet Earth, in a yellow sun system. These yellow sun beams grant Kal-El super human powers, like super human strength, flight, heat vision, x-ray vision, freezing breath and super ventriloquism (Oh it’s true). The only things that can harm him are kryptonite, magic and someone tougher, like Doomsday.
Yet apparently, none of those things are real. Neither is Superman. According to scientist and internet favorite, Neil deGrasse Tyson, the “science” behind Superman’s fantastic abilities is as logical as magic.
Watch this video clip where Tyson explains the difference between red and yellow suns and debunks Superman’s fantastic abilities.
As the moderator stated, hopefully Lex Luthor wasn’t listening! Shine a red light on him? That’s certainly easier than acquiring radioactive meteorites!
