Superman Question
#11
Haven't read comics since 1972, don't think DC got into that bit of detail back then.

Superman originally didn't fly. He "lept tall buildings in a single bound." It's rumored that his flight ability started gaining popularity in the 40s with the radio shows because of the sound effects used. It sounded like he was flying, so they started making him fly more often.
Scientifically, his flight is an extension of his strength and the effect that our "weakened" gravitational pull on Earth has on him.

Hmm. That's interesting, Pippi. I'm wondering how and if that power translates to underwater though.

Why you need Superman to swim when you got Aquaman? That's his territory.

I don't need him to, I'm just wondering if he can. It seems he could definitely swim fast, just like he could run fast on land, but could he "fly" through the water...?

I don't think if Superman was under water that it would be considered flying.
No matter how fast he is moving, it would still be swimming.

If he was moving his arms and legs and swimming like a normal person, he would be swimming. But he doesn't have to do that when he flies through the air like a bird does...

I suppose if he pushed off the ground and then flew into the water, he would continue on his trajectory, so I supposed he could "fly" through the water. If he was at the bottom of the ocean, and he pushed off, I assume he would fly up and out of the water and continue his trajectory flying in the air.

Really you guys are a huge disappointment! (LOL)

I thought we had some geeks here! :)

Geek has nothing to do with it. If you answered your own question, do you really need us?  Tounge
I still say it's swimming, no matter how he propels himself.
