Whats with the knock off battles :(

also did we not do a jla vs stormwatch thing ?

Well if you go by the bio here, apollo has limted solar storage, while super man just soaks it up. Also the more apollo seems to extert himself, the more he drains it.

If i go by the comics superman seems to have more of a background to say what he is cabaple of? Apollo"sun king" just does not seem to have that much of a well define history or background to give insight into his full ablity.

Superman can run right behind flash, and was faster before flash acess and learned to use the speed force, and even than superman is still impressive and fast.

He broke though green lanterns will power " and no im not talking about superboy prime, he did like 32 of them or all of the crops :)"

Overall, i will say superman, hopely someone will come that can give us more insight into apollo"sun king", for i lack info about him, i just dont follow that line of comics.

i'm backing Superman on one fact...

all of Apollo's powers, such his head vision and blasts, are basically solar radiation... which would make Superman stronger rather than hurt him lol

I think Superman would win, Apollo would put up quite the fight though, and as long as the fight only last through the day he would be fine. Now I don't read stormwatch or any other wildstorm so I am sure the entire extent of Apollos' powers. although from what I have read I doubt his super strength, and maybe speed are up to par with supermans, while probably quite powerful, I doubt as powerful. So I think Supermans Super Strength as least would be enough to eventually give him the win. Also maybe Invulnerability.

How do you do a double quote, cause I have something to say to both of you, but only have the ability to quote one of you at a time.

If anyone would know some crazy info and be able to prove Apollo could win, it would most likely be Buckshot.

I thought about that but, didn't know if his powers came off as solar radiation. The More You Know! with that I am not sure Apollo could win even if his Super strength, speed, and invulnerability were par with supermans.

Thanks Duders

Superman has this one. Apollo could only hope to face him on a full charge, but even then, not for very long. Apollo uses his power up pretty fast (faster when he uses his laser vision, but still at a decent rate of speed when just fighting with his fists) so he wouldn't be at his best for long enough to do anythng. His laser vision would not only drain him quickly, but woud also most likely fuel Superman. Even on his better days though, his strength and speed are not on Superman's level. His durability is pretty good though. He's been punched around the world (literally) when he wasn't even fully charged and gotten back up to fight.

That was the other thing I wasn't sure about, How fast do Apollos' powers deplete, thanks Bucky Baby (Yes I am trapped in a Rat Pack Movie right now). Also, Can Apollo Actually Fly into Space, I think I read stratosphere on his page, and if so would he be able to fly nearer to the sun, and soak up more energy, therefore making him more powerful. And thanks for letting us/Me know about his super strength, speed, and invulnerability. The More You Know! (For those of you who don't know, or don't remember "The More You Know" was a saturday morning public servive anouncement on NBC)

Apollo has been listed as being able to only lift approx 10,000 tonnes I think (in an official Wildstorm RPG publication). This pales in to insignificance aginst Supermans strength.

However I am not sure that his 'Laser vision' would power superman. Although Apollo absorbs solar/light energy, we don't know that the energy he projects is of the particular wavelengths that Superman can absorb. Just because they show it as 'yellow' don't make it normal sunlight.

Superman cannot absorb most lasers, as they focus on one wavelenth of the EM spectrum, not the normal sunlight compositional range.

I agree that Superman easil;y wins this battle though.

Space flight is one of Apollo abilities. He doesn't feel cold and he can turn off his breathing. I don't know how exactly he does it. Angie asked him once and he said something like, "I just don't breathe." I think the bests display for speed was him flying halfway around the world in 30 seconds (not fully charged) but I can't recall anything for reaction time. And for strength, he once destroyed a huge chunk of a ship that had "a docking by the size of a continent" (so maybe the whole thing was as big as a planet). I don't know if that his best strength feat (it's not really strength anyway, he just crashed into it) but that's what I'm remembering.
