Name First Appearance Character Class Voiced By
Superman (aka Clark Kent, Kal-El) Action Comics #1 (1938) Tank George Newbern

Superman is one of DC Comics' oldest and most popular superheroes. Hailing from the planet Krypton, he was sent as a child to Earth for his protection. As he grew up, it became apparent his alien abilities were exponentially more effective on our planet than his home world; he is impossibly strong, has heat vision, can fly, breathe ice, and much more. He uses his powers to protect Earth from all kinds of threats, sometimes alongside other DC heroes in a group known as the Justice League.

Since his creation in the late 1930s, Superman has been extremely popular, and has been portrayed in countless comic book series, animated shows, live action TV and movies — the list goes on.

How to Win as Superman

Superman is one of the Tank class characters in MultiVersus, meaning his main job is to take a punch to help his teammate survive for longer. However, there's much more to him than just that — he has some powerful tricks up his sleeves.

Your bread and butter while playing as Superman is his Air Side Special. Charge this and he will fly forward, and you can direct this while it's happening. If you grab an enemy, your flight will continue for a second and then you'll fling them forward. You can use this to score some pretty nasty ringouts by carrying enemies off to the side and throwing them out. So, after dealing some damage, grab an enemy like this and you're sure to score a KO. You can achieve this with Superman's Air Up Special, too.

His standard combo is great for racking up some damage, but don't forget about his ice breath. If you're able to build up the Ice status effect, it can really hamper enemies by slowing them down considerably, which in turn lets you get more hits in. The laser attack also comes in very handy, especially for attacking grounded enemies while airborne. It deals damage after a short delay but will almost always catch opponents off-guard if you can time it right.
