Awesome: Superman: Red Son

  • "These shores are off limits, Comrade." Cue asskicking.
  • You have to admire Lex Luthor's ability to completely break a superpowered, world-ruling dictator with just one single question:
    "Why don't you just put the whole WORLD in a BOTTLE, Superman?"
  • Superman manages to carry a damaged Brainiac out of the Solar System before it self-destructs. What makes it even more impressive is that Lex calculated the explosion would destroy everything within 15 million miles in less than a minute. Doing the math reveals that even at light speed, it would be impossible. This leaves us with only one conclusion: superman managed to not only break the speed of light, but get the explosion far away enough that the 8 billion mile-wide Solar System would remain untouched. All in less than a minute.
    • Summed up in the exchange beforehand:
    Lex: "Even you aren't that fast!"
