Can a Jedi Lightsaber Cut Through Superman?

Illustration for article titled Can a Jedi Lightsaber Cut Through Superman?

Someone at Yahoo! Answers asks: "Can a Jedi lightsaber cut through Superman?" In other words: is Superman more powerful than a Midichlorian? You'll never be able to get this question out of your head without at least trying to answer it.


The team at Yahoo! Answers is somewhat split on the outcome; responses include "No. The lightsaber is a laser and lasers can not hurt superman" and "dude, lightsabers can cut through anything! even superman," but thankfully our nerd powers are strong on this one - The answer is, probably not, unless he's already been weakened by either magic or kryptonite at the time.

Of course, if the lightsaber in question is powered by a kryptonite crystal, then he's going to be in pieces faster than you could say "Cut off his hand! Cut off his hand!!!"

I don't get Superman. If he has a neutron dense molecular structure (dense enough to withstand any baryonic or electro-magnetic attacks), then he would also have the gravity equivalent of a miniature black hole.

So, not only would a light saber do nothing at all, but the Jedi, the lightsaber, and everything around Superman would be sucked into his event horizon.
