If a magician cast a spell on Superman which removed him to Hell or Rann, Superman would be powerless to prevent the spell from taking effect.

If a magician engaged Superman in hand to hand combat and said "Ha! Do you worst, Superman. I'm magic!" then Superman would have the magician's arms tied behind his back in no time.

Superman is vulnerable to magic, not helpless to defeat enemies who use it.
STRIKE !!!

What if the magician has Kryptonite?

Is this not kinda simple, cant Death possess Superman and make him eat Kryptonite.

Id also say the Death is magic since he cant be killed by conventional means, except in the original story by the souls of all the people he killed on dead world, I know it didnt kill him, but it sounds a magicky to me.

I liked the "Death fluids" idea, made it more of a ritual, more scary & believeable. Functioned more as a psychological thing for Mr. De'ath. like the transubstantiation of communion wafer in Catholic masses.

Death mentions (in Young Death) that Phobia and Nausea created him using magic.

Clearly the real question is: Could Superman use his super-speed to disassemble the molecules of Death's spirit form, thus killing him permanently?

Yeah, but any sufficiently-advanced psychic power would be indistinguishable from magic....

'Twas an entry for an old Dredd villian art comp on the board. I think it won, as well - and quite rightly.

I reckon Death could sneak up on Superman while he was asleep and do the hand-squeezy-heart thing.

That would, however, rely on Death being sneaky, not the announce-himself-in-a-loud-voice-quickly-followed-by-defeat tactic, from which he never seems to learn...
