I know the answer to that one, it was actually in one of the "old" DC comics in the mid-late '70

...and we're still wondering about what you know...

he uses a special mirror to reflect a very focused thin beam from his heatrays to cut (burn?). I know it sounds weaird, but there you have it... DC comic 1978 (or 79)

I believe it was a fragment of the spaceship his parents sent him to earth in. It 'just happened' to be curved enough to focus his heat vision enough. Likewise, his glasses were made from pieces of glass from the spacecraft's windshield--

-- that 'just happened' to be shaped right to fit in eyeglass frames. (this after he accidentally melted his glasses in class one day). There were lots of these 'amazing coincidences' back in the old days of Superman.

And yes, I'm a nerd, and yes, I grew up reading DC more than Marvel ( I always thought that Jack Kirby art from Marvel made everyone's skin look like it was shiny metal. I didn't get it at the time.)
