could he run out of energy for his optic blasts?

Yes, during the Apocalypse and the Twelve storyline in the late 90's early 2000's he did. If he's away from sunlight for an extended period and overuses his optic blasts he can run out of power.

@_Magnus_: Yeah, I believe it takes him approximately 16 minutes to recharge... As far as I know I recall his power will still be active but the output will be reduced substantially.

They should really figure out how to harness the energy once released, into some form of battery or generator of some form... couple hours a day and he could solve a nation's energy crisis.

@TheOptimist: or he gets kryptonian skin cells that store the energy of the yellow sun.

- If I had Emma Frost in my bed I would mainline Red Bull to make sure I didn't run out of energy....oh, your talking about his powers, my bad

He just gets tired from using it and the blasts weaken, at least that's from my understanding.

Instresting question. The way his powers work is that his eyes are portals to a dimminsion filled with non-einstenien opticc energy and the portals in his eyes are fueld by solar energy but his optic blast themselves is not made from solar energy .In practice yes the eventual result is he  "runs out of energy" however in theory he cannot since his energy fills an entire other dimension and no matter how long Cyke lives he probably cannot exaust an entire dimension worth of energy. however he can run out of solar energy and as such the portals to this other dimension would close thus he would be cut off from his energy but still he technically didn't run out he just lost contact with it. also he can become exausted and need to stop channeling the energy so once again while he did not run out of energy he can be cut off. The simplest answer that sais it all is that while cyke can never run out of energy for his optic blast he can run out of both physical and solar energy thus loosing connection to his optic energy and effectivly running out
