Jack Bauer: Superman?

In our (very involved) watching of the first 2 seasons of 24, we have noticed something about Jack Bauer... He is invincible.
In the second season alone, he gets stabbed in the leg, smacked around, tortured, shot at, falls in a plane crash, his lungs collapse, his heart temporarily stops... AND YET he continues to run around shooting scores of bad guys without taking any bullets himself and has the clarity of mind to out-decipher every other good character on the show. Even when he gets physically injured, the obvious signs (hobbling, holding the injured part) only last about 30 minutes for the episode, then he's back to being Super-Jack.
