This is how the character has chosen to describe himself. He may
even believe it. That doesn't mean that his 'Faster than a speeding
bullet' ability of 12/12 is in any meaningful way different from my
'Swift of Foot' ability of 12/12. For comparison, Kal-El probably has
a 'Faster than a speeding bullet' ability of about 15W7. It goes
similarly for his other abilities.

Unless I'm missing the point, we've had this discussion
already several times.
