Having come across a couple of pics of cigarette-smoking Supergirls during 'research' for that other thread what I do, it got me wondering...

If a girl (a smoker) developed Kryptonian-level superpowers, would her addiction to cigarettes remain? Would it be completely eradicated along with any other 'imperfections' in her body...or would her cravings reach superhuman levels?

Smoking couldn't harm a supergirl (that might even lead her to take it up in the first place), but what could she do if she really wanted to quit? Presumably nicotine patches would be useless against her invulnerable skin...

I rather like the idea that a supposedly-perfect superwoman - who's the strongest, healthiest and fittest person on the planet - could still have a vice like that because her already-present addiction was made super along with the rest of her...

If she has to have a vice, why not nymphomania? :twisted:

Might continue to have a vice out of 'habit' but without the chemical need for it I think she would just go through forced withdrawal until it was gone from her system.

I'm a 100% anti smoker so I find the whole thing ugly. However I believe 100% in to each his own. There is a group of nuts around where I live that want to ban smoking in bars across the state. Would be great for me but I believe that I and the bar owners have that choice. One of the founding fathers I believe said something like 'those that allow their freedoms to be eroded deserve none.'

Where i live it is banned and i have also no problem with it (It's also a matter of third nonsmoking parties who have to breath it especially who cant choose to leave like a waitress).

Back to the Topic:
I think this was addressed in some Superman comics (And the movie Superman 3?). bat i don't know how.

Maybe it depends on how she reached superhuman levels.
Anyway the mental effect should stay for some time.
