An alien that stole Superboy's powers uses Heat vision.
Heat vision was a super power that allowed one to emit beams of heat from the eyes, allowing oneself to melt any object.
Heat vision was generally hot enough to completely vaporize certain objects. Superman as well as all yellow sun-powered Kryptonians had this ability.
Martians also had a similar ability, which they called Martian Vision. Both were considered an energy projection power.
