> OK, everyone in the world knows that Superman can't get powers under a red star. Everyone also knows that Superman has powers under a yellow star. But what about other color stars? There are blue, white, and orange stars in the universe. How do Superman's powers work under those colored stars? Has this ever been covered in a comic? Is he perhaps more powerful near a blue star, which releases more energy then a yellow star? Just wondering if this has been touched on.

I think it was covered in a couple of Pre-1986 comics that depending on how young the star is, the more power (not necessarily more powerS) Superman has.

Yes, that was true at one point... Believe that he was able to function at about 50% of nomal under an Orange star, while both White dwarfs/Blue Stars actuslly were able to boost his power levels to a degree..

Would be interesting to see current DC take on the cincept of just how Stars affect Supes!

Also, are you under the impression that Supes CAN function while exposed to Red Sun energies as long as his solar reserves last, its just that he cannot replenish and use the Red Sun to allow him to remain "super" once his yellow energies is used up?
And don't see Red Solar enrgies as useful as blasting him with Green K, since doesn't K weakened/hurt him immediatly, while he needs a large amount of Red Solar exposure to cancel out his body being able to absorb the Sun? he still has powers for awhile being blasted by say Red solar laser, yes?
