Saitama, on the other hand, is a "normal" human who has trained himself beyond the peak of human potential. He chose to become a superhero to add some excitement to his life, and has now paradoxically become so powerful that his new career is boring. He defeats every foe he encounters in a single punch and a shower of gore (with only one exception to date), in most cases not suffering a single scratch or scuff. He's stronger than the strongest, faster than the fastest, tougher than the toughest, and can even survive the vacuum of space by holding his breath. He doesn't, however, possess any abilities that go beyond normal human abilities -- he can't fly or fire off energy/ki blasts. He can, however, break them with a punch. At one point a giant meteorite was going to destroy the city he simple punched straight through it. another time there was this monster called the sea king who was covering the Earth on water on one punch saitama punched the monster into nothing and split the ocean in half. He fought a man who can move at the speed of sounds and could keep up with him easily.
