* An unfortunate person from Gadara ([[{{IAmLegion}} you heard that one]]), was described as doing that on regular basis. To be fair, it's not specified, whether this strength is result of DemonicPossession, or the man simply was strong enough to begin with: -->...a man with an unclean spirit, who lived among the tombs; and no one could bind him any more, even with a chain; for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the fetters he broke in pieces; and no one had the strength to subdue him.

** "Abandoned" had Clark chained to a chair next to a furnace with kryptonite flames and savagely tortured by [[NewGods Granny Goodness and the Female Furies]]. He uses his SuperBreath to freeze a chain and make a lead sheet fall on and smother the furnace. Once the kryptonite flame is out, he instantly regains his strength and breaks free.
