No matter how good he thinks he is, the house shaking was seismic activity and not his bedroom skills.

Scary indeed, yet Lois and Lana still longed for it.  One of comics great love triangles with seismic results.

But I wonder if she was ever satisfied, since he was also faster than a speeding bullet.

And some stories have had seismic repercussions for the time they were written.  Take Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe and The Jungle by Upton Sinclair for example.

The first round draft pick for any NFL team can cause a seismic shift in their fortunes. Whether it's for good or ill will always be a gamble. Sometimes your 7th round pick might turn out better than the 1st pick in the 1st round.
