Well, Mr. M. You said it in one word. Standard. Superman's Standard means of getting power is by absorbing sun radiation or light, but there has been nothing that has stated that he can not absorb or use other forms of energy in order to power himself. As i stated below, he did absorb Meggadon's "anti-sun" energy or whatever it was called, and used it as a means to power himself.

> > Just wondering if any of you have been following the latest Supes storyline, where he is shown a Future that involved him being killed off fighting, but main thing that interested me was that it was shown that he was able to get powered up by absorbing energies from heat/pressure/rocks within the Core of the earth itself!(Quick story/villian used nanites to go into his body to try to kill him off, and Supes is also hurled through Earth itself, and remains lodged in its core for awhile, but than escapes back to surface, using the energies of molten core lava/rocks/heat/pressure to repower him back up to a degree!)

> His precise method of empowerment is the sun... what exact energies is unclear but It's not as if he's heat powered or even an energy leech who can tap into any old ambient energies... while it has been shown he can absorb differing radiation wavelenghts via the sun (just after his ressurection when his powers went out of control) it is not his standard means of getting power... we know that if he's out of range of a star while in deep space he will power down to the point of being human - he can't absorb energy out there in the same way as say the silver surfer can.

In that case maybe the Hulk can absord Solar or Cosmic energy instead of Gamma Rays? *rhe*

Is Superman therefore the Silver Surfer using the logic of this thread? If so why is he shown as losing power away from stars or under different color ones?
It has been stated and shown that it is the particular energy given by being close to yellow stars that powers superman, whether it's a mixture of Radiations or just one particular wavelength doesn't really matter - Sunlight is his power source.

This is nearly as odd a suggestion as the one posted here a while back that Superman could be recharged via the output of Lightbulbs!!!
