    Meanwhile in:
    Red Hood and the Outlaws 017

    Bizarro proves he has a new superpower:

Hmm. I would see this as a combination of Infra-red vision and telescopic vision, both abilities Superman has, rebranded in Bizarro terms to become "Telescopic Night Vision". Though saying that it is a rare thing to see Superman use infra-red vision - does anyone have any idea when we last saw it? \(fear\)


    Support Cancer Research and Alzheimer Research.

Technically? Superman #29. Superman tried seeing in the entire spectrum, which includes infrared, when he was tracking Parallax's fear energy.

Using Thermal/Infrared Vision by itself? The last I recall it being used was a year or two before Jeph Loeb took over, but I could be wrong.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
