How Does He Shave

Exactly How Does Superman Shave?

Written by

The following videos tackle the age-old question, “Exactly how does Superman shave?”

I’m sure that almost every fan out there would have some wacky answer about how Clark Kent (Superman) shaves his indestructible beard. Gillette has taken on this challenge and teamed up with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment by gathering some of the great minds in the entertainment industry. These include director, Kevin Smith, Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Mayim Bialik (neuroscientist and The Big Bang Theory actress).

    I very vividly remember in a episode of the late 1990s animated Superman series watching Clark Kent use a mirror to reflect a “laser-ized” form of his heat vision back against his face to shave. A Kryptonian laser trumps a Kryptonian hair folicle.

    how ’bout a kryptonite charged blade of any kind? it will definitely soften his hair follicles and bring a close shave (objectively and figuratively…lol)…

      There is apparently no kryptonite in Man of Steel. but also kryptonite would kill him. risking his life to shave everyday would be crazy.
