Clark using Microscopic vision

Micro vision is the ability to see extremely small things, like a spec, or something microscopic. This ability can be combined with X-ray vision.[1]

Characters with this ability

  • Clark Kent - Clark first manifested this ability in Masquerade although it is unknown when he developed it. He used micro vision to see small residues of ink in Desaad's victims at the morgue. Without knowing it, Clark also used this ability in season six, to see Raya in an unclear picture when Chloe's computer was unable to fully clearly render it (Reunion).



Lois: That's only a fraction of a centimeter. How would you be able to see that?
Clark: Micro vision.
Lois: "Micro" vision"?
Clark: Well, it's my power. I can call it whatever I want.
Season Ten, Masquerade
