I've always wondered about Martian Vision...Isn't it a little strange for a race susceptible to heat to be able to shoot laser beams out of their eyes? I mean, I guess it would allow them to kill each other in a fight, but it just seems like something their bodies shouldn't be able to handle since they're vulnerable to heat and flame. Now, if Martian Vision is psionic in nature, like Telekinetic force blasts meant to stun or tear an enemy to pieces, that would make more sense than heat vision to me.
Can anyone explain to me how Martian Vision really works and if its heat based or psychic based? And if it is heat based, why doesn't it do harm to the martian firing the blasts?
P.S. can martians survive in outer space and inhospitable atmospheres like kryptonians?
