      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.

We can't claim it is because of that, that they barely survived their ordeal. However it is a possibility and it does put a caveat when we try to understand what happened. Only the writer knows what he wanted to portray.

Knight is correct though, on the fact that IF Superman was severly depleted of his solar energy reserves, as it appeared was after round 2 with Zod and his gal, that his invulnerability would have been greatly lowered from normal levels,,,

We know was running low on energy, from having to face them earlier, and part of plan to have Zod cut loose on them, in order to build up energy beam to blast back with...

Apollo messed that up, as he supercharged Zod and friend back to super selves!

So if he was at normal levels, should have just punched out of reactor, or else took it no problem,, but he did survive point blank even less than normal self, so was a good durability showing!
