"Superman: "The All-Searing Eyes!"": Professor Potter invents a helmet that may enable Superman's heat-vision to warm the world. The problem is that, when Superman takes the helmet off, he can't shut off his heat-vision.


Quote1 The answer I feel, is one that should concern us all, since even conservation won't solve the problem forever! And that answer is right before your eyes...or rather, in them! If I could duplicate the way your heat vision works-- --So tell me, how does it work? Quote2
