Earth's yellow sun.

"I guess Jor-El was right about how the yellow sun affects you Kryptonian cockroaches."Baern, to Clark Kent, Fallout

The yellow sun is a yellow star of average size, and sustains all life on Earth with its heat, providing nourishment to the organisms there.

David KaiqueAdded by David Kaique

Byron Moore exhibited super strength in a feral state when directly exposed to the sun. When he was not exposed to the sun, he lost his powers and regained control over his violent tendencies. Unlike Clark Kent and other Kryptonians, Byron immediately ran out of power when he left the sunlight; this suggests that he lacked the ability to store solar energy to be used later.

Many metahumans have demonstrated powers like super speed or super strength without an obvious power source. It is unclear if they draw their power from the yellow sun or have the ability to act as a solar battery.

KryptoniansEdit

Brandon RheaAdded by Brandon Rhea

Solar energy from the yellow sun is the source of energy for Kryptonian powers. More precisely, the solar energy is theorized to be transformed into a bio-electrical force field that endows Kryptonians with superhuman abilities. The force field shields Clark's body and the surrounding area from external forces; as a result, his clothes can sometimes survive the impact of an explosion. In addition, Clark possesses a remarkable healing factor; if he is wounded due to the presence of kryptonite, magic, or something else, he will heal almost instantly after the incident. (Hidden, Lockdown, Nemesis)

DvaAdded by Dva

When Clark is exposed to large amounts of sunlight, his powers are greatly magnified. (Perry, Bizarro) It is not yet revealed if his powers can grow without limitation. His healing factor seems to be limitless. Clark can also lose control of his powers during solar flares, as seen in Perry. On the other hand, Kryptonians can use their abilities during a solar eclipse.[1]

Clark has demonstrated the ability to use his powers while indoors or otherwise not directly exposed to the yellow sun. This suggests that he is capable of acting as a solar battery and storing solar energy for later use.

If a Kryptonian is powerless, absorbing a large amount of sunlight radiation can restore their powers. (Odyssey)

Exposure to kryptonite seems to inhibit Clark's ability to use his powers. It is possible that, in addition to inhibiting Kryptonian powers, kryptonite may drain the solar energy of Kryptonians.

Kryptonian spirits, while inhabiting a human host that lives under a yellow sun, can gain powers.

Superman blast Doomsday into the sun.
Ironman29758Added by Ironman29758

In the 31's century when Doomsday is unearthed by the villainous Kirt Niedrigh, He enlisted the aid of EarthGov's scientists to infused the beast with solar radiation resulting in the re-constitution of its cellular structure. Intended to use it as Doomsday as an unstoppable weapon to destroy all Kryptonians and win the war. Superman does battle with the monstrous behemoth on New Krypton realizing that he no match for Doomsday he decides to fly him into directly towards the heart of the sun imprisoning him once more. (Argo)

KryptoniteEdit

RoR-ElAdded by RoR-El

Kryptonite, in its rather wide variety of forms, was a ground mineral that made up the planet Krypton and was completely harmless to Kryptonians under a red sun.

Flash0816Added by Flash0816

They can be found abundantly throughout Earth. However, like how Kryptonians are affected by the radiation given off by the sun, kryptonite is imbued with influential abilities derived from the yellow sun that can harm Kryptonians in tremendous ways. When a meteor rock is in close proximity of a Kryptonian, they glow.

BizarroEdit

Bizarro572
Bizarro's face distorts in sunlight.

As would be expected from a reverse Kryptonian, green kryptonite makes Bizarro stronger and he is weakened by sunlight (whereas Clark is strengthened by it, as seen in Bizarro). While Bizarro could fly in broad daylight (as seen in Phantom), his skin became deformed and took on a pale gray color when it came into direct contact with sunlight.

While sunlight didn't affect Bizarro to the extent that green kryptonite affects Clark, it appeared it only diminished him just enough for him to be pierced by earthly objects, such as a steel rod, if enough force is applied.

MartiansEdit

John sacrifices his powers to save Clark.
RedBlueBlurAdded by RedBlueBlur

The yellow sun has the potential to strip or rid Martians of their powers and abilities permanently if they are in the vicinity of its heart. However, Doctor Fate was able to restore John Jones' abilities by teleporting him into Mars' outer atmosphere, indicating that it is permanent because a de-powered Martian would have absolutely no way of getting to Mars.
