Superman & Lois Fans Sound Off On Their Favorite Superpower

Since he first arrived on the pages of "Action Comics" #1 in 1938, Superman has practically made it his mission to conquer all mediums. He has most notably become a prolific face at the movies, played by the likes of Henry Cavill and the late Christopher Reeve, and is no stranger to animation as well. Not to mention, he's had a, well, complicated relationship with video games (we're looking at you, "Superman 64") and more than a few solid runs in live-action on television. That includes the Arrowverse series "Superman & Lois."

Starring fan-favorite Tyler Hoechlin as the Man of Steel and Elizabeth Tulloch as the Daily Planet's star reporter, the series predominantly focuses on their efforts to find their groove as parents. Their two sons, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan Kent (Alexander Garfin), are in their teenage years, which are difficult enough for parents to navigate without the tribulations that come with Kryptonian genetics. Still, they manage, and as a family, they come face-to-face with a myriad of challenges — some more dangerous than others.

Despite it being something of a family drama, "Superman & Lois" frequently finds the time to showcase thrilling superhero action. Naturally, this allows Supes to use his many special abilities, though one has captivated fans' imaginations more than all others.

The people love taking flight

In a now-deleted poll by a now-deleted Reddit user, "Superman & Lois" fans had the chance to voice their pick for favorite Superman power the program has shown off so far. The comment section saw folks rationalize such abilities as heat vision and super-strength, but before it disappeared from the internet, one choice ultimately won the vote: flight. "It's the only one I really want. When I was a kid obsessed with Lois and Clark I used to have dreams about flying," wrote u/Thejerseygirl, sharing a sentiment that many others who cast their ballot for flight would likely agree with.

Superman's flight has become an integral piece of his character over the past several decades, and it goes a long way in showing just how powerful the Last Son of Krypton really is. Although, did you know that this power didn't come along until a few years into his comic book run? Initially, he could only leap large distances without suspending himself in midair. However, that changed in 1941 when artist Leo Nowak mistakenly drew him flying instead of jumping. Between that and the cartoons and radio plays of the era granting him the ability of flight, the tweak stuck for the long haul (via Gizmodo).

Superman has quite a few memorable powers, and all of them hold a special place in the character's legacy. However, the image of him flying through the sky, arms extended in front of him, and red cape flapping in the wind remains unmatched on "Superman & Lois," in issues of DC Comics, and everywhere in-between. No wonder fans love it so much.
