    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!
What Knight said make sense. I agree 100%. However, was it the writer's actual intent? We will have to wait and see.

That was exactly how it went down. Apollo was looking for revenge on Kal, Superman trounced him pretty severely.. using the Sun against Superman was a bad bad idea. Di and Kal were having a rough time with Zod and Faeora (always spell her name wrong) so Diana had mystical armor made that gave them an advantage. It looked like they were going to win but then Apollo turned around and super charged Zod and Fae with as much energy as Kal had gotten to defeat Apollo.

After the severe beating they were tossed into the nuclear well of doom. Kal wrapped Di in his cape and took the majority of the blast. I thought it was pretty wild, he depleated the very last of his reserves to survive and protect Diana an was reduced to what looked like a 6 month old corpse. But once he got some sunlight he was able to help fight off the last of their leftover foes and get Diana to safety an THEN himself.

They've been playing up Kal's lack of real combat training in the book so far, so despite his physical superiority he has a lot to learn from the Amazon, an that lack of training is why he just can't beat out Zod who's as capable an concomitant as any warrior AND nearly on par with Kal for pure power.
