That sounds... pretty epic. I have high hopes for this film and I fully support Henry Cavill as Superman.

Telekinesis..........................................WTH? I was excited for this. ahh screw it , It is a movie with Superman and Amy Adams, still excited but I was really hoping the writers might stay true to the comics this time. As great as the Reeves four were the writing sucked, those movies were saved by top notch acting.

I do find it interesting that they gave him TK I guess we'll see how it plays out. Maybe its a power he had when he was younger but then faded as he grew older

This sounds terrific. I'm seriously excited about this. Just the trailer, even!

@SuperShafe: Ha. 3 and 4 were awful. Although Supes did use tk to rebuild the great wall of china in the old series so there's a president for it. I think he might've have done it a couple time in the SA as well, though that I'm not sure of.

I don't know how I feel about TK, he's not Kon El

And for the record, Superman kind of has TK, but not in the way like Jean Grey would use it. It was answered in a thread I made about a week ago.

Weird that he's using TK in this movie.

Hmm...why must they make unnecessary changes? No TK s'il vous plait.

@spiderbat87: Weird Right?

@Gambit1024: Send me a link please, I'd like to see your argument.

@Gambit1024: Just read the entire thread nothing in there came close to convincing me that he had TK. I also distinctly remember reading that Conners TK allowed him to mimic superman's powers and that according to Teen Titans: The Future is Now Conner also developed normal Kryptonian powers as he matured. All Star Superman called the field that protects his clothing a bio-electric field. You are gonna need more than meaningless conjecture by viners , some of whom I really respect , to convince me that Kal has TK Powers.

Superboy, a flawed clone of Superman, got much less raw power than his genetic template, but he did get a power called "tactile telekinesis" (he can move things without touching them, only he has to touch them--it sounds dumb, but in practice it's like super-strength with more flexibility. For instance, Superboy could lift a tugboat just by touching it with his toe--he wouldn't have to pick it up, just make skin contact). This is in addition to flight.
Supergirl, along with flight, also had a very powerful telekinesis (she was able to stop bullets in mid-air, rather than just bouncing them off her--er--chest).
So we have three Kryptonians with similar but slightly different powers. All of them can fly, and two of them are telekinetic.
Ergo, Superman's flight is telekinetic in nature. It's just that Superman can only focus his telekinetic potential through this one specific ability (although arguably, it's also what lets him lift buildings and battleships without the structures crumbling under their own weight). Superboy and Supergirl, while possessing less raw power than Superman, have more fine telekinetic control, allowing them more versatility when using that ability.

Yes, while Superboy is the one with "tactile telekinesis", he had to have gotten that power from somewhere and I can tell you that it wasn't from Lex Luthor. And Supergirl, another Kryptonian, has also desplayed telekinesis in her own right. Therefore, Superman must posses at least some form of that power even though it's not as well developed as his clone's or his cousin's.

Sounds like the Superman film we have wanted for a loooooooong time.

Looks AWESOME

Clark sits back and says, "I have powers. Unimaginable powers. And I don't know what to do with them."

Ok now that i think about it...didnt Zod have a TK beam in Superman 2?

#24 Posted by WildValentine (289 posts) - - Show Bio

Ugh, I just don't think anyone can take Superman seriously. ESPECIALLY after Nolan's dark and intense Batman trilogy.

Yes, he did.
I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt where the TK is concerned..I do think it can be woven into Supes's classic powerset without altering it to drastically.
