Parasite had to leech off some off his excess power. Superman had increased in size and his heat vision had to be contained.

In the final chapter of the Reign of the Supermen arc, the weakened, black costumed Superman confronted the Cyborg Superman, Hank Henshaw, who attempted to kill him with a huge blast of Kryptonite radiation.

The Eradicator leaped in-between them and used his body to convert those Kryptonite rays into something Professor Hamilton later dubbed "Kryptonite X".

Superman was bathed in this radiation, which had the effect of restoring his lost power, and permanently increasing the rate at which his body absorbed solar radiation, allowing his body to metabolise other forms of energy as well. So not only was Superman back to full power in an instant, but his power continued to slowly increase during the weeks and months that followed.

Initially, this was a good thing; it allowed him to do things he wasn't capable of before, like throw a space vessel the size of a small moon, and comfortably remain in space for days with no air in his lungs.

But eventually, his powers grew to the point where he started to lose control of them, and his body began to Hulk up in size as well.

He ultimately solved this problem by allowing the excess power to be leeched off during a fight with Parasite.

According to Hamilton, all traces of Kryptonite X were removed from his system in the process, meaning he was finally back to normal for the first time since his death.
