Is Elon Musk a superman?

I have read his biography and most everything I can find on him and he is as close to a Superman as is humanly possible. He has done so many things that I thought were impossible that I have totally giving up on doubting him. In the beginning I talked my friend into selling his Tesla stock on the belief that an electric car was not feasable untile one more big change was made to batteries. How do you think I feel about giving out that advice?

Elon Musk is not a superman. He is a good businessman and a super-optimist who hit it big in the dot-com boom and rather than retiring with a bevy of bathing beauties as I'd have done, he took that money and plowed it into an insane dream: That electric cars could be fun to drive and good for the environment and we could power them from the sunlight hitting our roofs. Then SpaceX. And proving that he's not infallible or a superman, there's the Boring Company.
