Grand Unified Theory of Superman's Powers

Art from cover of Superman: Red Son, by Mark Millar; link is to the Amazon page for that book

I could not let this important research paper go by without a mention.

In this paper we propose a new unified theory for the source of Su-
perman's powers; that is to say, all of Superman's extraordinary powers
are manifestation of one supernatural ability, rather than a host. It is
our opinion that all of Superman's recognized powers can be unied if His
power is the ability to manipulate, from atomic to kilometer length scales,
the inertia of His own and any matter with which He is in contact.

Note the use of capitalized His, describing Superman as like unto a god.
