Default Re: GURPS Supers Alternatives

At this stage, aside for the addition of Telescopic Vision with Parabolic Hearing under Clairsentience, I am only tweaking left and right. Should be good enough.

To balance him against someone else, maybe I should try my hand on Wonder Woman next.

This version can:
- Survive a direct hit by a 100Mt nuke if he uses a Super Block
- Survive in pretty much any hostile environment
- Fly at 165 km/h, "sprint" at 200 km/h or use Hyper-Flight to fly from Metropolis to the Fortress of Solitude in less than 2 minutes
- Act before almost anyone (ETS)
- Push (fatigue) himself to act three times as fast as everyone or complete tasks 30 times faster
- Hit as hard as an Anti-Tank Missile with his Heat Vision
- Freeze someone or render inanimate objects brittle for minutes with his Freezing Breath
- Fly by unnoticed, although his blur could be picked up by recording devices if played in slow motion
- See and Hear over a kilometer away and over 2 kilometers away if he pushed (fatigue)
- Win a Pulitzer with his expert skills in Current Affairs, Reporter, Research and Writing
- Wow crowds with his premier world hero reputation, his heroic look and charisma combined with excellent skills in Diplomacy, Leadership, Public Speak and Savoir-Faire
- Exposure to Kryptonite or Red Solar Radiation nullifies his powers. Kryptonite could also kill him in 10 minutes or so
- Damage inflicted by Magic (after DR) does quadrupled damage (nullifies his Damage Reduction and multiply damage by 2)

Some rules tweaks used:
Radiation Tolerance is not used
Innate Attacks are Variable as a default
DR covers the eyes as a default
Travel Time (-60%) represents out of combat, between the scenes travel
Cost Fatigue -10% per Level
Super Perks are considered automatic (aka, in genre)
