I was reading a copy of a trade that included Justice League of America #1 last night, and I realize why some people don't like Superman comics. This panel is from that 1960s comic. The League has all been banished to another dimension by Despero and Superman uses his telescopic vision to peer across space and sees Martian Manhunter and Batman on another planet. That is just way too powerful, even for me. That even defies my suspension of belief. In the same issue, Green Lantern talks about moving a sun, only he can't do it because it is a 'yellow' sun. Sometimes, I don't understand how these comics lasted past the sixties with these kinds of super feats. If these are really their powers, how can anybody stand up to them?
