    I mean, when he's invulnerable to so much else, having something that actually effects him is pretty much a weakness even if it's one other people share. It's not like they try and depict anyone else in the League as being immune to magic.

    You are right not for a small detail, if you put together all the heroes of dc and marvel, the times that they have been affected by magic, it is only 1/10 of the times that superman has been.

    Not having natural defense: Magic affects him the same as everyone else. A sword enchanted to turn everythig it touchs purple will cut a normal human and turn them purple, it will not cut Superman but it will turn him purple. A sword enchanted to cut through anything will cut a normal human and Superman.

    Being weak: Batman and Superman walk into a room where hour before someone casted a spell, Batman is fine, Superman gets sick because of it.

    Superman should make his weakness public. Why? Cause he is superman, he has the advantage and he is gutsy like that. It also provides safe assurance to people. Ultimately, if superman tries he ain't weak to anything.

    He's good; not reckless.

    Even if he should be a public hero, he still has some right to privacy.

    He is both. Besides, his weaknesses are dumb plot devices. A rock and hocus pocus, sheesh! Have the guy treat the plot device for what they are. Superman's limits are set by his own effort, morality, interest.. Etc.Public or private, the guy is too powerful. It would only be fair.That doesn't mean anyone with the magic rock can beat him.There is a reason he doesn't dodge bullets even if he could.It's the guys philosophy. He doesn't wear a mask either.
