    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.

That is though how the powers of Super,am function, being that he is a living solar battery...

He had been engaging Zod and his gal for awhile, had fought Apollo off, and was part of the plan was to have Zod just cut loose on him, in order to have that energy charged up to blast back on them with!

Plan went well, until Apollo decided to grant Zod and his gal "sun dipping", and kal was beaten down by charged up Zod, but even then Zod mentioned still read hard to kill him off!

he was to drained and beaten down to even try to break out of reactor, or lead, HV , so was forced to take the Nuke flush in the face...

Great durability feat, as few beings can take an explosion like that when full powered up, mucj less really wealened state!
