By acting as a solar battery, Kryptonians are able to secretly absorb solar energy into their body. Many Kryptonians can store solar energy from Earth's yellow sun in their bodies.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

When Kryptonians reach Earth, their cells become storage components for solar radiation, absorbing the sunlight, which in turn, runs all of their abilities. Such energy, when properly utilized, can heal, strengthen, and power-up Kryptonians. It appears that even a relatively small amount of solar energy can provide Kryptonians with a vast quantity of energy as was shown when, after barely a minute of exposure, the Disciples of Zod were able to project powerful blasts of heat vision as well as being invulnerable to a hail of bullets.

Kryptonians, as seen many times throughout the show, don't necessarily need to be directly exposed to or even under Earth's sun (though, they must normally be on a world with an active yellow sun) to sustain their superhuman abilities.

Kryptonian DNA can be modified with blue kryptonite to remove Kryptonian powers; in this case, energy from a red sun (or energy from a yellow sun filtered by a LuthorCorp satellite) can instead be used to power a Kryptonian's solar battery. (Pandora) However exposure to a large enough quantity of solar radiation has been shown to be sufficient to restore and revive a depowered Kryptonian.

VulnerabilitiesEdit

  • Green kryptonite seems to minimize the amount of solar energy a Kryptonian can utilize, while in the presence of the rock.
  • Certain cosmic influences like solar disruptions and deficiencies, such as a solar flare, can weaken this ability in Kryptonians. (Perry)
  • Blue kryptonite appears to hinder the ability of Kryptonians to store and/or access solar energy, as the stone strips them of their powers under a yellow sun.
  • Gold kryptonite has been speculated to strip Kryptonians of their abilities forever; this would also prevent Kryptonians from processing and storing solar energy.

QuotesEdit

Brainiac: (to Clark while on the planet Krypton) There's no yellow sun to charge you here. (throws Clark Kent' to the ground)

Basqat: Not under a red sun. Look around you. Your Blur is dead.
Season Nine, Pandora

NotesEdit

  • Through kryptonite and electricity, in the form of a power swap, solar energy can be transferred from a Kryptonian into someone else.
  • Bizarro gained an inverted version of this ability to absorb and metabolize energy allowing him to draw power from Kryptonite.
