Did you watch the latest Avengers film? See a few of the virile superheroes pitiably attempting to lift Thor’s hammer? Well it turns out that Superman could do it - because he already has.

This, alluding to the DC/Marvel comic crossover from long ago, is just one of the many astonishing facts about Krypton’s finest you’ll find housed in this infographic, which is about to blow your puny, earthling mind.

Compiled by Buy Metal Online, (possibly because of that stupendous Thor fact, but more likely because he’s called the Man of Steel) the lesser-known titbits give us a whole new reason to appreciate Clark Kent’s alter ego. 

For instance, did you know the rights to Superman were original sold for $130? Or that he was once bitten by Dracula only to see his fanged opponent instantly explode because Superman is fuelled by the sun? You did, did you? Well how about Lex Luther’s hatred for him stems from Lex blaming Superman for his baldness? See, we told you.

As mild mannered journalist ourselves, we fully endorse this Kypt sheet.
