    According to the preview, Superman barely survives a nuclear blast ala Dark Knight. Sigh. There goes any chance of my buying this series.

Both Kal and Diana had just gotten into a fight with Zod and Faora in issue #6. The fight was pretty intense. Zod and Diana got their butts badly beaten by a Apollo enhanced Zod/Faora when Apollo enhanced their power levels so they could defeat Kal and Diana. Both were badly hurt.

Obsiously, Kal was a bit too drained of solar energy to bust himself and Diana out of the nuke prison they were in. That is why he barely survived a nuke. He wasn't exactly at full power when it went off.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
