      If that were the case, there would be no need for the belt. ;\)

    Only, there was no belt. Superman also clearly states that he and Jon are wearing transmitting devices. I guess neither of them needs to breathe. Cool!

Okay, I just checked the issue again, there was no belt, but there were two devices on his hips that are definitely oxygen tanks, similar to what he used in Superman: Exile, except for a bit smaller since the one he used in Exile had an actual belt. Either way, Superman had a mask that is a "breathing apparatus" that doubled as a communications device. The reason why it's both is because Supergirl had a transmitter without a breathing mask on. If a transmitter was all that was needed, he wouldn't need it to cover his nose and mouth. You can deny it all you want, it's not going to change anything.

And about Jon, see Daveym's reply.

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?
