    Imagine the Hulk, Sentry, or Surfer -- hell imagine Galactus -- taking that nuke after being drained to the point that they can't even bust or leap out of a simple concrete silo -- what'd be left of them?

Personally i think the idea that they were "drained" is a massive stretch. They were beaten up sure, but not drained - can Diana even be drained of energy to the point where he is more human than Kryptonian in powerlevel in the same way that Supes theoretically can? I dont see any reason to assume she was drained, and thus less durable, based on the fact that she didnt break out of the reactor either.

Soule just doesnt seem to write people like Superman/Wonder Woman (what i would call top tiers) at a particularly high level. Earlier in the series Superman seemed to be pretty well occupied by the task of lifting a relatively small ship out of the water and Diana showed signs of, if not strain, effort in catching a small, falling jet. When super-charged/sundipped by Apollo Superman said he felt like "he could bring this whole mountain down around them", and though he did qualify it with "with a single finger" its not really the planetary scale powerup you might expect from previous showings.
