So, to get things back on topic, what do people think of the level of amping Superman experienced when he was blasted by Apollo?
I liked it,i think it was reasonable that he was charged. I was also kind of banking on that to happen ever since Apollo started badmouthing WW( And supes's dialogue after he got boosted was hilarious). Regarding the way the fight panned out, i was happy about that slap, i mean it appeared brutal for such a small motion but i liked that. I always see 'Gods' especially the Greek Gods (the major ones) as being a tier above the most powerful superheroes, that's why superman getting that boost to put him on Apollo's level(or at a level where he could effortlessly face him) was a good way to go for me, Apollo's king of Olympus now after all.
Regarding the suit tearing and repairing, Supes was slapped into Hephaestus's forge where all sorts of the most powerful weapons are created. Magical weapons, celestial bronze, imperial gold (Percy Jackson reader :P) the lot, for superman to survive that lava was a feat in itself. When he was boosted though i didn't think that affected his armor. As seen in Superman #12 his suit/armor is self healing if ever he comes across something that can affect it. It's some kind of bio,nano,whatever suit and it repairs itself really quickly, so the moment he got out of the forge it must have started repairing itself and it also kind of responds to his body somehow so feeling the charge he was getting, he could have prompted it to heal that much more quickly.
