I love Superman. I really do. The comic had its ups and downs, but I love the concept that is Superman.
Not just a guy who could take over the world, but a hero who does his best to help the world without harming anyone if he can help it.
But I hate, hate, hate freeze breath. I can get past flying, strength, heat vision and even x-Ray vision. But freeze breath is the worst.
The conceit is that if a normal person blows on something hot to cool it, superman can super blow on something to freeze it.
Is Superman’s body temperature below freezing? Is the air he breathes different from what we breathe?
Blowing on hot soup will at best bring soup down to room temperature faster than not blowing on it, but it will never go Lower than that. Do you blow on your ice water to cool it down?
It is really crazy the things we can’t suspend our disbelief for sometimes, but every time superman gets out of a jam with freeze breath, I cringe.
Do you have a superhero you live with a power you hate?
