- In Superman #38, Superman discovers that he has a new “super flare” power. As far as we understand it, this new power has him expel all the energy in his cells in order to create a bright and powerful blast that can incinerate everything within a quarter mile. So far, so impressive. However, there’s a big, whopping downside to it. By using the super flare ability, Superman’s cells gets depleted, essentially making him human for 24 hours.
This new superpower emerged during a fight between the Man of Steel and Ulysses (a super-human who can absorb energy that can make him as strong as Supes) in the final chapter of writer Geoff Johns and artist John Romita Jr.’s “The Men of Tomorrow” arc. When Superman used his heat vision on Ulysses, the villain began to absorb it, and our Kryptonian hero began to glow, setting off his new power and ending the fight by knocking out Ulysses and making Superman pass out.
Batman explained to Superman that “It looks like your heat vision is actually a precursor to another ability you possess. You unleashed the energy stored in every one of your cells. You created a solar flare, Clark. A super flare.”
