While he can change it at will and needs no skill roll to do so, it could be said that he needs to make an INT check to figure out new applications, but I don't think it warrants a limitation.

Background/History: Saved by his father from his home planet's destruction Kal-El found his way to Earth and was in turn found and adopted by the Kents. They raised the most powerful being on this planet to be a good and noble young man, Clark Kent. Clark studied and traveled the world finally finding himself in Metropolis. There he began his work as a reporter for the Daily Planet. It was at work that he met Lois Lane who would one day become his wife.
Clark has a dual life; in addition to his work as a reporter he fights evil as Superman, the greatest of all heroes in the DC Universe (at least as far as popular opinion goes).
Personality/Motivation: Not only was Clark raised "right" by the Kents, he also has come to learn much about his homeworld of Krypton and seeks to prevent similar catastrophes from happening to his adopted home. Perhaps it is because no one on Earth can truly claim to be more powerful than he, that Clark feels disdain for the bullies and tyrants of the world. He realizes if he'd been that petty he'd never have the friends, family, and love that he does now. He cherishes his "humanity" and is very protective of those who look to him for aid.
Quote: "Up up and away!"
"This looks like a job for ... SUPERMAN!"
Powers/Tactics: Superhuman Strength, speed, durability, senses and the ability to fly unaided. Superman also has a vast number of tricks he can call upon when in need.
Tactics? He rarely needs any. However, he generally seeks to disarm his foes before they can hurt others (or themselves) and subdue them as quickly and painlessly as possible. The longer a fight lasts the more thought he puts into it. Anyone who can give him a run for his money physically oft finds him to be surprisingly clever and skilled in combat. It just takes a bit to bring that to the fore.
Campaign Use: The big gun. The Example.
He can also be used as a mentor or a sage on Kryptonian lore and history, he's seen much in his relatively short life and has lot's of advice.
Appearance: Large, well built guy with short black hair and blue eyes. Wears a blue costume with red trunks, cape, and boots. A big red "S" on his chest. Maybe you've seen him?
