Supes has been exposed to it from an infant to an adult which is over 30 plus years. Super Girl on the other hand was exposed as a teenager which means she could absorb it a faster rate than a baby but her exposure time has only been a few years (maybe even less since her ship was stuck in the middle of an Asteroid for part of the trip to Earth). Since Superman has had the longest overall exposure then he theoretically should be the stronger but has just been holding back (according to him) when dealing with Super girl. Thats just my opinion... I could be wrong.

We can't say for sure how much of the time that she was on the ship (from when Kryton exploded until she landed on earth) that her body was exposed to the solar energy, but she was definitely exposed prior to landing on earth as she had full powers when she first came out of the ship. Also, she was exposed to concentrated, unfiltered solar radiation as there was nothing to filter any of it on the ship. Also, her body wasn't expending her solar reserves as much since she was in suspended animation.

But does that make up for the 15 plus years of absorption that Supes would have had from age 16 (assuming that is the age that solar absorption starts for Kryptonians) ?

Lord Majestros:
it's POSSIBLE that she was exposed to direct, unfiltered solar radiation the entire time she was in the ship. She was in the ship from the time Krypton exploded until she landed on earth. So, at a minimum she was in the ship the 30+ years Supes has been on earth. So, POTENTIALLY she has a max of 30+ years of unfiltered sunlight exposure. Also, don't forget, she was physically around the same age she is now when she left Krypton. In the current continuity Kara was a teen when Krypton exploded while Kal was a baby (she was actually supposed to take care of). Even if solar energy wasn't constant and was only used to "feed" her, that's a LOT of exposure. Finally, I don't think that Kryptonians have to be quite as old to develop powers as Supes did in older continuity, the kid that has shown up in the Superman books that is from Krypton (Zod's son) is physically younger than Kara and he already has powers.
