What about the new version of Superman suggests he will be consistently portrayed on a higher power level than before?


.. the fact that he has relative combat showings showing superior relative stats than ever?

What showings, post merger, are greater feats than either had, pre?
He tore Doomsday apart.

Which was prior to his merging with his Pre-FP self. Nice fail.

I am glad this thread included a review of the doll.  I was really concerned about that one.
you're welcome. so few understand the importance of proper tie-in merch.

Yeah, now I remember that one. Others have been suggesting this Red/Blue merge = 2x power. But I do remember that Swamp Thing issue. It does suggest that new Superman was more powerful, but not necessarily overwhelmingly so. Maybe just because he was older? At any rate, I'll need to see more writers pick up on that idea before I can conclude new Supes is significantly more powerful.

You are wrong. This has nothing to do with energy red & blue itself but a homage.

However, Swamp Thing tells Superman that his absorption of solar energy is not in sync and only when new52 Superman died was this dissonance being 'resolved' but his absorbing the separated energy posed a threat to the entire planet so he had to 'sync up' Superman's solar absorption.

Pre-Crisis Supes faced off against some sentient alien cloud creature with a face that was threatening earth and he blew the sun into it and went on his merry way.

That must have been Galactus from the FF movie.

Actually that what happened in the GL movie.

The Sandlot

As a kid, I viewed as a silly movie where kids my age spend a summer going on whacky adventures and playing some baseball.

As an adult, it makes me pine for the good old days of summer vacation. Also, how simpler life  was when the big thing you worried about was what you were going to do for the day.

I'm guessing modern day Marvel creative retreats involve the top brass playing a custom version of Cards Against Humanity to come up with storyline ideas.

What if _____ turned into a ______

What if  _____ and _______ started fighting because of _______ but the main bad guy is __________  and _______ dies

See the other thread, but I don't think it works that way.

Superdad was weaker because his powers were being drained by Vandal Savage, like everyone else.

As for each Superman somehow being half of some original Superman, I'm not sure that is true. I read both the most recent Action and Superman comics, but I didn't follow the logic too closely. I think it may have been an homage to Superman Red and Blue, but not that 52 Supes and Post-Crisis Supes were each somehow half of Superman's total power.

More importantly, I'm not sure that it matters. When Electric Superman divided into Red and Blue (in fact, when Pre-Crisis Superman did so as well) there was no division of power that I can find any record of. Rather, it was more like cellular mitosis: you got two fully-powered copies of the original (comic logic, but that's comics!). Only their personas were truly divided and less than what they had been when merged.

So I see no evidence that Superman is now twice as powerful.

I swear to black baby Jesus, if this is UTs retirement match, and they have him raise Reigns' hand after, they are the biggest fools in the business.

I just hope that the WWE will wise up at this point.....

But, seeing what has happened since the Royal Rumble back in 2015.....yeah, he dies a slow death.
