Under their native red sun affected by Krypton's mass Kryptonians possess physical attributes similar to normal humans. Note: In the Golden-Age; Kryptonians were depicted as achieving physical perfection after millions of years of evolution, and due to Krypton's greater mass, naturally capable of feats of great strength while on their native planet.
When exposed to yellow solar radiation for prolonged periods of time Kryptonians possess superhuman strength, speed, agility, stamina, invulnerability, super-sonic flight, laser vision, x-ray vision, macroscopic and microscopic vision, acute senses, hurricane-force and super-cooled breath, ability to live without nutrition, liquid, air or rest for long periods of time and an extremely long life expectancy.
Invulnerability is derived from a biological aura, which can be extended to other objects and beings within close proximity.
Note: Superpowered Kryptonians are unable to see through the element Lead.
Their only known weaknesses are caused by red solar radiation, Kryptonite radiation and magic.
Kryptonite is a radioactive element native to the extinct planet Krypton, and depending on its color qualities, effects superpowered and non-superpowered Kryptonians in different ways. Green Kryptonite is deadly.
