Is The Bible God, Truely All Knowing All Powerful, All Seeing, And Everywhere?

Is the idea of being omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient and all the other all's attributed to the christian god, actually bible based.
I have have heard the term maximal power used to refer to the christian god, but if he just has the most power, what makes him any different the superman, how could he truly be a god, and not just some jackoff superhero. If some situation then god can't fix, not by his own doing, why allow what he can't fix to happen?
I am curious, is the idea bible based, that god is all various things. And what make a god, god, if that is not true?

As for Biblical arguments for the omni attributes, here is an excerpt of my statement of belief regarding theology proper back when I was in Bible college (Can't find link):
I believe God is Omnipresent; that is God is present everyplace within His creation. (Psalm 129:8; Jeremiah 23:23-24).
I believe God is Omniscient; that is I believe He knowseverything that had and will have had happened (Isaiah 46:10; Acts 15:18).
I believe God is Omnipotent; that is I believe there's nothing He can't do except what goes against His own nature (Matthew 19:26;Revelation 19:6).
