Elseworlds Superman, The Red Son Sup Power scale

#1 Posted by Deathshroud (1620 posts) - - Show Bio

I was wondering compaired to the likes of Superman Prime and KC Superman among others . How strong is the version of Sup from Red Son to them . he seemed like he had no limit to his power.

Red Son Superman seemed pretty standard in power compared to the regular Superman...

still had weakness to Kryptonite, had the same level of strength and speed.

i think my confusing about that came from the fact they didnt state it was kryptonite directly in the comic ..well from what i remember but i do recall what you are talking about.

I've just checked and your right... it doesn't actually state definitely that it was Kryptonite...

fair enough...

but throughout the entire comic there are no signs that he's actually stronger, faster or has more powers than the regular version
