Director Zack Snyder claims that his Kal-El seen in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel is more accurate to what has been laid out in the classic comics than anything else brought to the screen. But at the same time, DC Comics is having fun changing up the iconic superhero and his powers. Another month has gone by, and Clark Kent's infamous alter ego has been changed in the pages of the comic books yet again. This time, he's getting a completely new super power. Though, it is similar to one he's had before.
Released this past week, Action Comics #49 has Superman back in action. In this particular story, he throws himself on a big pile of Kryptonite hoping to rejuvenate his super powers. His abilities have been in decline and acting up after he used his Solar Flare in the Truth saga. But Kal-El's plan hits a snag. When he finds himself fully back up to speed, he feels a bit different. His eyes are now green due to the abundance of Kryptonite in his blood cells. And because of this, a new super ability has been discovered.
