No, he's like a plant, his body processes sunlight, that's all he needs to survive, but he still eats and drinks so he can feel more connected to humanity.

A better question is Does Superman need Sex to survive?

The Nuul
Yes, hes a sex addict...he secretly rapes woman at night and the Worlds Governments turned the other way because they know they cant do shit to stop him. Thats why hes on Earth.

KingD19
Most Kryptonians don't need sex to survive, but Superman is a rare case, he sufferes from extreme Sexlexia.

It's become clear he doesn't require food & drink for energy; yellow sunlight can do that. He eats because he likes to - Martha Kent probably was a great cook, so he remembers enjoying food when he was younger and did require it.

Not needing sleep? Hmmm...don't know about that one.
He does need recovery time after expending a lot of energy stores in some big fight or crisis.

Its a good job, really.

Imagine the pure, unmitigated destruction that a superdump would entail.

The density of that amount of eaten food matter (Probably America's annual harverst... per day) that would be required to perform his feats would compacted into a few logs likely to dense enough create a black hole and distort space and time or summat. stick out tongue


And when considering an object that dense/heavy, it presumably means that when Superman drops HIS friends off at the pool (The atlantic maybe), the water gets out in an awful hurry.

Ergo: Earth is wiped out in Tsunamis and earthquakes the minute he drops his outer and inner y-fronts and lets a couple of apocalyptic greasey weasels slide.

Juntai
Lets hope he didn't have White Castle or Taco Bell.

Sadako of Girth
If he did, he eat the entire of each respective company's worth.

I bet they couldnt find a "Go large" option big enough.

I wonder why Lois isn't dead. I mean, haven't she and Clark had super sex? If you get what I mean by that, then someone explain why she's not dead.

Apparently he can control his strength

Bio Aura. the same reason he can fly through the atmosphere or at high speeds carrying people who wouldn't survive it. if you're in close enough physical contact, and he doesn't want to hurt you, you should be fine.

just a theory, but...

Not really...is like Captain Marvel...he doesn't need to eat or drink...that doesn't stop him from enjoying a nice warm Hot Dog.

Interesting - but if he could do that, he could carry Lois with him into outer space. So that can't be right. He just has to be extra gentle holding people.

I presumed he made his own food, using an uber efficient form of photosynthesis. He then converted this food into pure energy like a sun does, i.e. E=mc2. Every time he makes a kilogram of carbohydrate using photosynthesis, he converts this into the quivalent of a thousand hiroshima bombs, which his body then stores using some exotic process unknown to conventional science. Thats why he doesn't have any waste products, as its basically all photonic energy.
