Superman has this Power

Source: 3rd Edition Rulebook, page 57

Ed's Notes: The AV/EV's of an attempt to spot an Character using Invisibility are equal to the AP's of the X-Ray Vision Power,  against OV/RV's equal to the AP's of the Invisibility Power. Positive RAP's indicate  that the invisible Character is located.

Likewise, the AV/EV's of an attempt to attempt to see through the use of the Darkness Power are equal to the AP's of the Ultra Vision,  against OV/RV's equal to the AP's of the Darkness Power.  It is not made clear in the Rulebook what the result of such an attempt brings about. One interpretation could be that Positive RAP's indicate  that the Character can now see normally, and in unaffected by the Darkness. Alternatively, RAP's could be used to merely reduce the AP's of Darkness affecting that character.

Oh... LOL... And while both the 2nd Edition Character Handbook and 3rd Edition Rulebook SAY that "Superman has this Power," HE DOES NOT. In NO edition of the game (I even checked 1st Edition!) does Superman have this Power!
