Hell, he's still inexperienced with his powers at this point. Maybe he doesn't know yet that he can hold his breath for extended space-flight.
Except he's not holding his breath. He's mumbling incoherently and answering chemistry trivia about the periodic tale. In every panel that he's inside the gas chamber, I can clearly see his teeth. He doesn't need oxygen while exposed to a lethal dose of Sarin Gas, but he needs oxygen while out in space.
Superman makes it up as he goes along, classic Silver Age.
Actually folks even with moderate exposure will recover. And that's normal humans.
Only after exposure stops. Nobody is going to recover from Sarin Gas while in the chamber during exposure. That was the point remember? You claimed Superman had a moments rest and during that time he recovered enough to escape. But I pointed out he had no respite, they were pumping the room full of gas then when he finally had enough, Superman looked around, found his rocket and microwaved their technology before walking out the front door.
There's no way the CDC is going to back the idea that someone in a gas chamber exposed to Sarin Gas is just going to get over it while the door is locked and the gas continues to flow.
First it's "The Goddamn Batman" now it "The Fucking Kryptonian Superman".
Yup, just like Batman's always right, Superman is always strong.
