Post-Crisis Superman was shown earlier to stalemate Golden Age Superman, who stalemated Silver Age Superman, who caused a universe to be created following the death of Maaldor, tanked the Big Bang, bursted through the bounds of infinity, shattered the barriers of space and time casually while flying, delivered a blow greater than any force in the universe, and fought against Blackstarr, a woman capable of destroying the universe and attacking him with the gravitational force of the whole universe, who also has absolute control over all aspects of the cosmos and all forces that created the universe. Superman is stronger than Doctor Sivana, who had the power of Shazam, who fought and stalemated the Invincible Man for several hours, who wields the power of the Big Bang. Superman fought against Nebula Man, who is a universe. Superman fought 30th century Mordru who had all of the magical power of a universe. Superman fought the Time Trapper, who is a sentient timeline capable of shattering timelines. Superman fought Monarch, whose quantum power is like the Big Bang, and whose fight with Captain Atom was twisting space and time and causing compressed universes to explode. Captain Atom has destroyed and recreated the universe and can freely control it, and was going to destroy several universes, and oneshotted Jenny Quantum, who created a universe, tear apart a reality, contain a universe with her powers, and annihilated the Doctor, who can create a universe, and yet is weaker than Superman. Superman survived an encounter with a tesseract swarm. Superman defeats Black Adam, who survived a tesseract expanding in his head. Superman stalemates amped Shazam right after fighting Black Adam, who tanked a tesseract bomb in his base. Superman tanked a punch from Icon, who killed Starbreaker, who killed someone who was holding the universe together. Superman fights Wonder Woman on multiple occasions, and even killed her once, who can recreate the timeline with her Lasso of Truth, can fight the Queen of Fables, who is an extra-dimensional embodiment of evil folklore, and can withstand attacks from 4-D when she's utilising four-dimensional energy. Superman fought the Red King, who can reshape the universe and destroy possibilities containing universes one by one, as well as having created the universe with his dreams. Superman fought Imperiex probes for several days, who can individually fight against and mortally wound Aquaman, who was causing the universe to collapse on itself. Superman fought and overwhelmed the Kryptonian God Cythonna, who warred for a long time against the Kryptonian God Rao, who created the universe. Superman pushed through the barriers of space and time, and then defeated the embodiment of his own Death, who caused the universe to compress on Superman, only for him to overcome it. Superman tanked Aztek's self-destruction of four-dimensional energy. Superman can withstand attacks from and damage the Lord of Time, who is four-dimensional. Superman tanks attacks from Firestorm, who has the power of a Big Bang. Superman has overwhelmed Kyle Rayner on multiple occasions, who defeated an aberration that was breaking down the laws of space and time and the universe, remaking it into a world devoid of cause and effect and reason, and these changes were reverted by Kyle Rayner. Superman fights Blackstar, who wields the the energies of the cosmos. Superman overwhelmed Starman, who can defeat Darklord Maaldor, who can become a universe.) | Hyperverse level (After being powered up by Kismet, he defeated Imperiex-Prime, who contains the power of and causes a twelve-and-a-third-dimensional Big Bang.) | Outerverse level (After achieving the Theta State, Superman fought and overwhelmed Dominus, who created his own Phantom Zone. The Phantom Zone is described as a boundless dimensionless dimension between being and nothingness and it resides within the Sphere of the Gods, described multiple times as a Platonic, archetypal world, beyond the Bleed, which contains all dimensions, in which there are an infinite number of. The Phantom Zone exists at the same level as New Genesis, which is beyond the bounds of space and time. The Phantom Zone also exists at the same level as Heaven, which is beyond space and time and contains Platonic shapes.) | High Outerverse level (Superman fought against Sivaa alongside Orion when amped in size after going through a Boomtube and he was going to destroy all of creation by dancing, and they eventually defeated him. Superman defeated Scott Free when he was merged with the Anti-Life Equation, which is equal to the Source. Superman fought and overwhelmed Infinity Man, who is the Life Equation, the Anti-Life Equation, and the Source. Superman overwhelmed Soulfire Darkseid, who is millions of times stronger than true form Darkseid, who the Source relies on to exist alongside Highfather. Darkseid was ending all of existence during one of his fights where he defeated Highfather. Highfather created Takion, who, alongside Highfather, is one with the Source itself. Darkseid was established as capable of ruining and ruling the Source, and was as bending and twisting it as the very heart of existence during one of his fights with Orion where they were both becoming everything and Darkseid began violating the Source. Their fight corrupted the entirety of the Source, and Orion is capable of doing it again by himself while becoming one with the Source. Orion stated that Darkseid would've went on to destroy the Source. Darkseid was shown to be relative to Nabu when they fought the Anti-Life Entity, who is stronger than Indra, who can destroy all planes of creation. Darkseid can harm the Spectre, who would destroy all of creation if he fought the Phantom Stranger. Limbo is a realm where space, time, and stories don't exist where all existence up to the Sphere of the Gods is but non-existent fiction. The Monitor Sphere is a higher realm where things that were massive in Limbo are now considered infinitesimal, a world where scale, space, and time exist on a higher level where everything is more profound and meaningful, where form and meaning surrender to the Overvoid and narratives crystallise around and the denizens walk among primal forms in a fundamental world. Alephs reside infinitely beyond everything to this point, with the Source/All of Creation being boundless in comparison.) | High Outerverse level (Cosmic Armour Superman fought and momentarily overwhelmed Mandrakk, both of them continuously adapting to each other's narratives and surpassing each other. Mandrakk was going to destroy all of creation and held all of existence in his hand. Even the Overvoid is said to be defenseless against the Story of Superman.)
Speed: Immeasurable, likely Irrelevant (Superman tagged Professor Zoom and was stated to have speed who rivals his, and Professor Zoom ran to the 25th century can move through multiple temporal dimensions, was going to run to the past to change it during his fight with the Flash, and can freely move through the timestream. Superman reacts to Barry Allen and Wally West while they're running through time. Superman kept pace with Jay Garrick and Wally West while they were chasing the Reverse Flash to the past. Superman tied with Barry Allen in a race while holding back, tagged a fusion of Wally West and Barry Allen, and chased down and subdued Barry Allen. Wally West ran to the 853rd century, outran the Black Racer to the end of time and the universe until death no longer existed on a conceptual level, he ran back to his time through the timestream, he ran into the Speed Force and changed history, chased Professor Zoom throughout time alongside Barry Allen, accidentally ran a few weeks into the future alongside Barry Allen, raced himself a few moments into the future by running into the future, Wally outpaces light, raced on a four-dimensional track that weaves in an out of space-time to the extent where sometimes he's shielding his eyes from the Big Bang and sometimes he's squeezing through a pinprick as the universe implodes into nothing, outpaced instantaneous teleportation from the point of view of ultradimensional gamblers, utilises the source of the Speed Force to morph hyperdimensional gels while fighting a White Martian, and ran through time through the slipstream alongside Jay Garrick and Barry Allen. Superman flew back in time to the Big Bang when fighting Brainiac 13. Superman pushed through the barriers of space and time when fighting against the embodiment of his own Death. Superman chased Superboy into the future. Superman outpaced reality-blitzing missiles that were sterilising the continuum. Superman vibrates through to timestream to fly a man back in time. Superman can move fast enough to outrun temporal distortions in the past, present, and future. Superman should be relative to Superboy-Prime who was capable of momentarily outpacing Jenni Ognat when she was running through time. Superman flew into Hyperspace, which is a realm that exists beyond space and time. Post-Crisis Superman should be relative to Silver Age Superman, who flew back in time through the timestream until he flew through a timeless, placeless dimension, flew around Kryptonians until he whisked them into the timestream, flew into his past self colliding head-on to send themselves into separate points in time and then proceeded to fly into the 30th century, he tore through space and time with his speed before facing Jaxon, flew through the past one occasion with Batman, flew to 1971 to bring people some milk, spun faster than time to move into the past, crashes through the time barrier to take a man back to his time, bursted through the bounds of infinity, shattered the boundaries of space and time with his speed, hurls Jimmy Olsen through the timestream multiple times, streaks through the barriers of time and space, breaking through time-space to fly into the past, carries a bunch of people through time, breaks through the dimensions of time and space to race time itself ending up centuries in the past, is sent through space and time during his fight with Ultimate Man and flies back; Silver Age Superman has flown through time so often that he's become immune to chronal distortions. Post-Crisis Superman is relative to Golden Age Superman, who flew back in time to chart meteorite courses, flew through the time barrier, flies back in time by flying around in a circle to fly into the time barrier, skips out on a man by flying into the future through the time barrier, bursts through the barriers of time to run back three centuries, flies around the earth while breaking through the space-time continuum to travel to the past, flies back to his own time after helping people, and hurls an ape into the past. Should be faster than Hal Jordan, who flew to the future without his lantern, and can travel a timeless distanceless barrier in an instant. Should be at least relative to Shazam, who travelled between atoms to go back to the Big Bang and can fight in a realm in between and beyond time and space. Should be at least relative to Wonder Woman, who is fast enough to move into the Speed Force. Should be relative to Aquaman, who can swim in the Secret Sea, which transcends space and time. Superman moved around in a realm of non-space and non-time. Should be relative to Silver Age Barry Allen, who ran into the Source. Superman flew from Apokolips to Earth. Superman flew out of the Source after Highfather said that it would be impossible to do.) | Immeasurable, likely Irrelevant (Faster than before.) | Irrelevant | Irrelevant | Irrelevant (Cosmic Armour Superman should be relative to Mandrakk, who can freely traverse the Overvoid.)
Lifting Strength: At least Infinite (Alongside Wonder Woman, Superman lifts the Spectre, whose body contains eternity.) | At least Infinite | At least Infinite | Irrelevant | Irrelevant
Striking Strength: Universal+ | Hyperversal | Outerversal | High Outerversal | High Outerversal
Durability: Universe level+ | Hyperversal level | Outerverse level | High Outerverse level | High Outerverse level
Stamina: Limitless. Time has no meaning when pertaining to how long Superman can continue to fight his opponents. | Limitless. | Limitless. | Irrelevant. | Irrelevant.
Range: Ranges from standard melee range to High Outerversal. | Same. | Same. | High Outerversal. | High Outerversal.
Standard Equipment: None.
Intelligence: Supergenius. Brainiac is only a thousand times more intelligent than him, who can process and store the knowledge of over 500 octodecillion beings. Superman memorised the Miracle Machine and rebuilt it by hand. Superman outsmarted Mister Mxyzpltk, who is perceiving events across infinite timelines simultaneously. Superman outsmarted Emperor Joker. Superman can speak Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, Farsi, Portuguese, and more. Superman mastered Torquasm-Vo within minutes, which takes regular Kryptonians years to learn.
Weaknesses: Red sun radiation, though Superman has tanked enough anti-sunlight to vapourise half of a galaxy. Kryptonite, though he tanked an onslaught from a Doomsday made out of Kryptonite, and he fought just fine after having all of the iron in his blood turned to Kryptonite. He's known to have vulnerability to magic, though he has resisted very powerful magical spells on quite a large number of occasions of note.
Key: Base | Our Worlds At War | Theta State | Boomtube Amped | The Thought Robot
Note: Superman is constantly holding back, to the extent to where he's been subconsciously and instinctively doing it his entire life. He even holds back in situations where it looks like he's trying, struggling, or angry, and he even held back in a race where he stalemated Barry Allen. Superman allows himself to be hurt by attacks so that he can gauge their powers and abilities and figure out ways to defeat them. It wasn't until he trained with Mongul during the events of Our Worlds at War that Superman learned not to hold himself back, and as shown earlier, he's stated he only ever went all out against Doomsday. On a later occasion, Superman casually defeated most of his recurring villains, including Doomsday, himself, while using only a weak fraction of his power. As such, arguing that the 65+ Low 2-C feats that Superman performs or scales to to be outliers would be absurd, as not only would he be holding back during any moments that would contradict this, but he would also be holding back during the times where he performs these feats.
