Superman inspects Lois Lane for internal damage.

The power to see through solid objects or people with one’s eyes. Also known as Penetrating Vision or Transparent Vision. Not to be confused with Infrared Vision.


The user’s eyes emit a ray frequency that enables for a transparency effect (i.e. x-ray) to visually penetrate solid objects or even see within objects.

Can be used for medical motives, to perceive cancers, tumors, or even blackened lungs the basic human eye perception cannot normaly percieve. The skill of percieving a specific location (i.e. artery) is given by partial reflection of the ray from each specific surface surveyed. The direction of incoming light allows for a positioned focus on the depth of a viewing surface.


  • User's may be hindered if more than one dense material is placed in front of another, or if the material is too dense as the object will appear opaque in vision.
  • Low skilled users may not trigger the effects at will.
  • Like actual x-rays, Superman's X-Ray vision can't penetrate the dense metal Lead. Bizarro, who has the reverse powers of Superman, is only able to see through Lead with his power but not through anything else.


Some can perform:

  • See through solid objects.
  • See through synthetic objects.
  • See through organic matter.
  • Trace nerves and bodily function activities.
  • Allows to pinpoint physical weaknesses.
