History

According to Clark, the first suit was made by Martha Kent.[1]

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Clark as "Superman" wore the suit in battle. After their victory, he would keep it at the S.T.A.R. Labs hall.[2]

Sometime after the crisis of 2019, some upgrades were made to the suit.[1]

Capabilities

Functions

  • Cape: To help with Clark's flying, he relies on a cape to help him to turn for when he is flying; due to the fact that capes help with aerodynamics.[2]
  • Advanced durability: It is unknown what materials the suit is comprised of, however, the suit is just as durable as Clark; as bullets cannot penetrate it, even explosives from missiles and highly concentrated bursts of energy cannot damage it.[1]
  • Identity concealment: The Superman suit kept the wearer's identity concealed.[2]
