North Korean leader Kim Jong Un can control the weather and climb 9,000-foot mountains, at least according to his country's news platform.

North Korea's official state newspaper Rodong Sinmun published a verbose story about the athletic feats and supernatural abilities of their "peerlessly illustrious commander" who can control "the nature," according to USA Today.

Apparently Kim, whose efforts to ramp up his nuclear arsenal earned him the name "Rocket Man" from President Donald Trump, climbed Mount Paektu, an active volcano on the border of North Korea and China. An image of Kim smiling at the mountain's summit accompanied the report. 

It was not Kim's inaugural mountain climb. Rodong Sinmun reports that the North Korean commander "often climbed Mount Paektu," but never in such clear mid-Winter weather, according to LADbible. The conditions were "rare to be seen even in spring."

The weather wasn't ascribed to unseasonably pleasant but natural conditions, rather to Kim's very own presence on the mountain.

As he "ascended" the snow-packed mountain wearing a thick coat and dress shoes, a blizzard ceased and allowed for "fine weather unprecedented," the state newspaper reports, according to USA Today.

"Mount Paektu presented charming scenery showing magic peaks and dazzling sunshine on its clear and blue waves," the report read.

According to LADbible's report on the article, Kim took his time atop the mountain to reflect on his plan for his country.

"His eyes reflected the strong beams of the gifted great person seeing in the majestic spirit of Mount Paektu the appearance of a powerful socialist nation which dynamically advances full of vigour without vacillation at any raving dirty wind on the planet," the article states.

The experience was supposedly so awe-inspiring, it brought back fond memories of the time Kim realized his nuclear aspirations, USA Today notes.

The Rodong Sinmun article states, "Imposingly standing on Janggun Peak, the respected Supreme Leader gave a familiar look for a while at the dizzy cliffs and the sea of trees, recalling the emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment and with the indomitable faith and will of Paektu."

This is not the first time the Kim family has caused miraculous things to happen on the mountain, Newsweek reports. The current leader's father, Kim Jong Il, says he was born on Mount Paektu at a secret military camp. A double rainbow allegedly appeared on the day of his birth.

Kim Jong Il has said his son showed superior abilities from a young age. According to his biography, Kim Jong Un took up driving by age three. He has also discovered the cure for cancer, Ebola and other ailments.

State media has backed these statements and other unusual assertions about their supreme leader throughout the years, USA Today reports.
