What gives a super strength to Popeye the Sailor Man, cartoon character popular in 1930s?

spinach
radiation
kiss
pipe smoke
The commonly accepted version of events states this por­tray­al was based on the popular mis­con­cep­tion that spinach is high in iron that makes the body stronger. In 1870s, German sci­en­tist Emil von Wolff mis­placed a decimal point in a mea­sure­ment of spinach's iron content, leading to an iron value ten times higher than it should have been, and this faulty mea­sure­ment was not noticed until the 1930s.
