* Comic book {{Superman}} looks at a wall and sees Lois, in natural colour, tied up behind it. Or he sees a bomb inside a ship that he's swimming past. Apparently, his eyes emit something that goes right through masonry or steel, but bounces off skin, clothing, dynamite, etc. at wavelengths that look just like ordinary light. However, like real X-rays, it's stopped by sufficiently dense materials (although, [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Pre-Crisis]], ''only'' lead stopped it).

** Another ties into the "psionic Superman" explanation that was quite popular a couple decades back (and which seems to have influenced the John Byrne reboot). This one posits that it's actually a form of clairvoyance, and that its inability to go through lead is merely a psychological limitation.
*** That's just using a different word. It in no way helps clarify how it works.

* ''ComicBook/SupermanSecretIdentity'' is a {{Reconstruction}} or one extended ThisIsReality take on Superman, and it approaches this power the same way: he only uses it on humans when he really, really needs to, because while he doesn't know exactly how it works, he's aware that blasting people with X-rays would be very bad for them.
