Can a lightsaber cut Superman?

#1 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

we have all seen that a light saber can cut through solid steel like butter, but can the light saber cut through the man of steel?

Yes, superman is stupid.

Lightsabres are cool

No, that is ridiculous. Are you crazy?

Ah I remember this debate on CV. Anyways, it won't cut him as easy as it cutting through butter because it's not magic based. But it would slowly start to cut him if you hold the saber on him for awhile, he's been cut by energy beams before. And he can still get hurt by it.

Tape  a crypyonite on the tip and stab that queer with it, and problem solved

Well spoken.

Lightsabers are infused with crystals, Kryptonite is a crystal and in supermans universe its seams to be in convient supply.

So force choke Luther, take his Kryptonite, infuse it with the saber, you have a green looking light coming out of the saber.

then you can hack that fool up to pieces

Or just have fun with him and force push his ass everywhere. :)

A true viner.

I think there is a slight misconception in the formulation of this question, where you might rather ask, and thee the real question is: can a lightsaber cut you?

Aaaaaaaaaaah, this is when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

@Vash: Stop trying to sound smart xD
But, i would hope it could cut him. I fucking hate Superman!

No, Superman is practically impervious to everything. I dislike him because of it.

#15 Posted by whackmypinata (941 posts) -

This is in the wrong forum. Superman is obviously superior so it should be in the Superman forum. Mods, please lock.

Not to a nuke he is not...lock him up in a room with a nuke and he will go splat like the rest of us...right?

That.

Now what you should really be asking yourself is, "can a lightsaber cut the silver surfer?"

The answer is no. A light saber is basicaly a sun sword. Superman gets his power from various suns. It would just make him stronger. And he already surived a Nuke in Kingdom Come. Everyone else, inculding captian marvel died but ol' Sups is standing.

No. In The Dark Knight Returns, he took a major hit from a nuke that went off near him. It made him incredibly weak, but it didn't kill him.

Well yes, lightsabers can cut through basicly everything. And he is still made out of flesh.

>Well yes, lightsabers can cut through basicly everything

If they can cut through everything, wouldn't they  "cut" through the "handle" they're made of? How do lightsabers not at least short out then?

#22 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

Use kryptonite as the focusing crystal, and Superman is fucked.

Superman would probably also be vulnerable to the Force, since it probably counts as magic. He doesn't have any resistance to magic.
#23 Posted by Lemegeton (780 posts) -

probably would do some serious damage. though an even trickier question would be
"would a lightsaber cut chuck norris"
lol

#24 Posted by SSbabel (1141 posts) -

If i had a lightsaber i would decapitate that fool.

#25 Posted by HitNRun (344 posts) -

A lightsaber can cut anything.
Superman can't be cut by anything, except kryptonite.

So the conclusion, I think, is obvious.

Well I don't know the excact "science" behind lightsabers, but lightsabers can cut through the handles, but maybe they're contained inside their own handle?
