Santa Claus has to be a superhero. What other explanation is there for a man having the ability to fly around the world, lift one metric ton of plastic toys over his shoulder and live to be 300 years old?

On film, the bearded fat man has had a long career showcasing his incredible superpowers and captivating the minds of impressionable young viewers. After Cinematical ran a very-NSFW look at Santa's dark side, we felt his image could use a much-needed PR boost.

So without further adieu -- we present to you the most amazing accomplishments ever achieved by movie Santas. You may not believe everything you read or see, but we assure you, every single one of these moments actually happened.
