If i get any replies i'll add my reasons as to why I think so.

I mean in the sense that Superman in one citizen of probably millions of kryptonians and he stronger than every other person on the planet earth

He's not overpowered. He just has a lot of PIS a times.

Everyone in the DC universe is pretty much Superman's equal. lol

Think about it though Wondeer Woman has superhuman strength Granted by Demeter (Goddess of the Earth). Diana is literally as strong as the Earth because of her link to the planet granted to her by Demeter. and still superman is stronger than her: while superman is a average kyrponian citizen

Who is powered by the sun. But going by that logic, then all the demigods(Hercules and all the others) should be better then any person. But they are not, everyone is on a certain level.

@dondave: Supes is not too strong. its part of his charecter he's supposed to be one of the most powerful people on DC earth.

Oh good another "I think (Enter hero here) is over powered because I lack the imagination to see the possibilities in the power level of said character" threads.

Bahahaha!

The answer is no, Superman is not too strong, never has been too strong, and never will be too strong.

Ok with the WW argument look at it this way She gets her strength from the Earth Supes gets his strength from the Sun Sun>>>>Earth therefore Superman's Strength greater than Wonder Woman's there problem solved

No I feel that he is not using his powers to the fullest at times

How is he too strong? its who he is! Its like saying is Silver Surfer too silver? He was made to be the main powerhouse in DC P.I.S has nothing to do with it, infact i see it as PIS when others beat him, this is someone whith limitless potential especially sundipped.

Superman isnt "too strong" its part of his character, plus he's a solar based being which explains why he is so strong in conjunction with the erath's gravity etc. It's just that his strength coupled with flying at light speeds tends to make some people thing he is on (for want of a better refference) skyfather level. 
 
Out of curiosity whats Superman's single biggest strength feat pre-52 (excluding Silver age) and post-52??

#18 Posted by PurpleCandy (773 posts) - - Show Bio

Because he's supposed to be invicible

Funny how people always have a problem with Superman being "too strong" but have no problem with characters as strong as him if not stronger (Silver Surfer, GL, Martian Manhunter, Thor, most DBZ characters etc.)

Don't you just hate that? You say something nearly a year ago and someone pulls you up on it now. Everyone is basically a noob when they start :P

@dondave: I think you can ask a mod to lock it. Worth a shot at least. Either way, I'm glad you have changed your opinion on the topic.

#31 Posted by russellmania77 (15034 posts) - - Show Bio

Agree

#32 Posted by cfrehse (1004 posts) - - Show Bio

judging from when this was made. yes i do agree with you. His most powerful feats dont match his normal consistency

#33 Posted by Bezza (3528 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman is not over-powered. You could argue that marvel's Sentry, Hyperion, Silver Surfer etc are more over-powered!

#34 Edited by Lvenger (19373 posts) - - Show Bio

@dondave: Do you still think Superman is overpowered? I thought his Pre Flashpoint power level was just right. He was clearly one of the most powerful beings on the planet but there were still plenty of people who could overpower him. And New 52 Superman is overshadowed by a good few beings in the New 52 so far. Helspont, H'El, Darkseid, Captain Atom, Despero, Wraith, Kyle Rayner as a white lantern, Doomsday (when he shows up in the New 52) and arguably Martian Manhunter and The First Born (he did beat up Wonder Woman and Orion without breaking a sweat)
