@DarkKnight96000:  Whats sun dipped superman? or are you refering to The Prime Superman from DC 1,000,000.

Reviving this thread because I have a related question as to when this terminology arose and whether it was ever use, expressly in the comics. 
I vaguely recall it seeing a resurgence... was it... slightly before the Chuck Austen era but I'm really grasping here. 
Basically it was a significant post-Doomsday Superman power-up era where Supes was reclaiming a lot of his powers and baseline stats to more closely approximate his silver age rendition than the comparatively more grounded Bryne reboot.

In All Star he get cancer and start dying, but later he became Superman One Million. 
 
However I think not that while ago he passed through at hight speed by the old red star of krypton and survived, but lost his powers for a full year

I know that but sun dipped implys that he was only in their for a few minutes at max, like he's been badly beaten or taken damage from Kryptonite or magic and he needs a quick power boost to heal, and I've never seen Superman do this so assumed he meant The Prime Superman from DC 1,000,000

I think it is when he recharges in the sun and kicks butt.

He becomes stronger and gains power to give other people super powers.

Yeah, I remind this from Worlds at War, Sending Bainic 13 to the beginning of time. This is the only time I like Superman, when he was on fire. Superman on Fire, haha.

Does anyone know how powerful Superman gets by sundipping? How much time he has to spend and whatnot?

#23 Posted by Z3RO180 (6703 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jayfournines:well when superman stayed in the sun for like 850 thousand years he came out a god so im guessing if he sundipped for a day he would be like a fracion of SM 1millio power and thats a lot.

I think the one that punched-out Brainiac in OWAW was sundipped for 2 hours. It goes exponential after that.

@Z3RO180: You numbers are a bit off. SMPOM existed in the 853rd century (not millenium) and was only sundipping after 700th century. Prior to that, he was travelling across the universe. That's the reason he reached the Source Wall and even had contact with the Source.

@ssejllenrad: kind of guessed that was never the best when it came to math :P

I think SPOM is the strongest, not only because he is sun dipped. If you think about it he is the same superman from the 20th century and that means that he is the same superman before and after CA supes and SOS supes. If he has to I think he would get the armor back and the sword and become SPOMSOSCA superman. A mouthful but stronger than any force known to comics. He would only resort to such a thing if Louis died and the multi verse was about to collapse( his attack would probably just rip your comic book in half)

in our world at war he actually only dipped for fifteen minutes and it more than tripled his overall power including strength, speed, etc and in DC one million he exiled himself for 1500 years after he circumnavigated the universe so sun dipping for superman does so much more than any of us can imagine
