Also, Karate Kid (Val) who DC insists is a normal human can fight with kryptoninans. Some of the worst WIS in comics.
He IS human, as in he was born on Earth to human parents. However, he is also born a thousand years later. They have better medicine, technology, better everything really. So he is human, but possible due to human advancement, all the variables might enhance his abilities. Faster thinking - learn martial arts quicker, faster reflexes, speed etc.
Or the other option my friend likes to use, Karate Kid is an abomination. Good way though.
Nope, that's not even implied. I know all that. The only reason behind all of his feats is learning thousands of martial arts from different planets, and concentration. It is still WIS, anyway, since non of the other 30th century humans were obviously "normal" people. You're friend is wise, cause writing-wise, he is an abomination.
