I was just thinking, since everyone says Superman can't have kids with Lois Lane, why would Goku be able to have kids with Chi Chi?

It seem like Saiyan's DNA are similar to Human's DNA, also Superman have kids with Lois before (not in the main universe)

Because Akira Toriyama wanted Goku to have kids but most DC writers don't want Superman to have kids. Ask an obvious question, get an obvious answer.

I'm pretty sure in one of the Superman films Clark and Lois do have a son, so it happens on occasion.

Edit: Moving this to the Dragon Ball forum. No idea why it was posted in Off-Topic.

Because Goku is a boss... same with Vegeta... lol

but seriously maybe Saiyans have similar DNA as humans.... like mentioned above.

Yeah, Superman Returns. When I saw the kid I was pissed!

@Daniel_Newton: ...Because it seemed like an off topic question, I guess the Dragon Ball forum works better, though.

Also, your response wasn't really what I was going for.

@MarioRedfield: The Off-Topic board is for threads that aren't related to anime or manga at all; subjects like food or politics for example.

It's kind of the only response to give, because it's literally decided by the writers. If you want to take the comparative angle and say "well Goku is humanoid and reproduces like a human, Superman is the same way, so why can't he have kids?" then of course I'm with you on that, but that's obvious. Could Superman have kids with Lois? Sure, like I said, it's happened in some Superman adaptations when the writers want it to.

I suppose if you're looking for a "technical" reason, since there's no physical one, then I would have to say Kryptonian and Human DNA simply aren't compatible, while Saiyan and Human DNA are.

Again though, that's a totally obvious answer. I'm not sure what you're looking for since there's really nothing else to it, you see what I mean?

@Daniel_Newton: I see what you mean, and thanks, it makes sense now.

They're from different universes and follow different logic.

Because it works better for the storyline maybe? That's the only thing I can think of. I guess for superman him actually having a kid for a while would be bad. Not that it hasn't happened before. In Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow he ends up having a kid with Lois but that was only at the end of that era. Whereas with Goku him having Gohan around was crucial for the dbz storyline.

He can raw dog every chick he comes across and never need to pull out due to his super immune system and sperm incompatibility. That's most super.

Goku still has to worry about that and the possibility that if he loses himself and goes super while inside a woman, the pressure might blow her in half at the waist.

@DBZ_universe: Actually quite the opposite, it's BECAUSE he's super he can't have kids
