What is Superman's weakest incarnation?

I'm thinking it's Golden Age Superman, JL Season 1 superman, or perhaps one of the movie incarnations.

What do you think?

Golden Age for sure. JL Season 1 Superman may have been weak, but he had a much more versatile powerset than GA. The movie incarnations were SA ridiculous sometimes. Nowhere near the weakest.

@Gambit1024: Golden Age couldn't even fly and use heat vision right? Only real basic stuff right?

@RoyHarperBLOW: Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

It wasn't until a little later he got flight, and I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that all the other stuff like heat vision, super breath, etc. was in the Silver Age

Never really viewed JL/JLU as a weaker version of Supes I mean he still had all his power, just that they never really put him to where his comic level is. Of course naturally, that was pretty much for all the heroes.

Definitely Golden Age Superman. JL Superman is way more powerful than that incarnation is.

@GunGunW: New 52 is not so bad now but in Actin Comics# 0 yes he was weak.
