Just when you think you have heard it all, here comes the most inept argument that sundipped Superman isn't an amped Superman. Because as we all know Superman has access to dozens of stars he can absorb Sunlight off from at all times. And this wasn't a special circumstance where he flew across several strategically placed stars by Batman.
Now watch this living comicvine meme twist himself into a pretzel when trying to apply this same logic to someone like Hulk, who exists solely on gamma and gets more powerful the more gamma he absorbs. I am sure he will be 100% consistent and claim that also isn't an amp for Hulk, right?
Getting power from an OUTSIDE source isn't your own power i am sorry to say, whether it's Hulk, Thor or whoever, i understand that Superman relies on Sunlight just to exist, but that's not the fault of anyone but the writers who gave Superman such a glaring character flaw. So Superman getting Sunlight from 1 or 10 or 1000000000000000 stars is not Superman with his power, no more than a solar power house that absorbs the Sunlight is using it's own power, it's the Suns power.
You can cry and complain all you want. It's in the comic I don't need to speculate. The man is solar-powered always starving and keeps himself that way for years. Don't get sour because I make a statement you don't like. You got to eat to live. Just like watching calories. You may not like these comments :) but this is from your page, most commonly used lines ( Butt and hurt).
Like I said it's in the comic. If you call it an amp it's your choice. If you call it a boost it's your choice. That his power showing you what levels he can go up too. This character chooses not too. Why because he is superman. Now I do understand what you are saying. I do see your point of view. Outside source:) Superman power has always come from an outside source. Now Thor's power is from his hammer and its always been an outside source due to his hammer power. As for the hulk, his power from gamma and a short burst of power based on his past. You can dislike what I said all you want or try to twist it.
I can tell you are a shaken by this :) you are telling this story about suns been placed and blah blah. I could go deeper in this sun been placed and the size of a sun and distance and even reason now I can't be bothered because you are Aethisknowledge. Now, what you are failing to see it's not Superman at his maximum, it's not his best:) yes its a new level of him discovering himself. It's not his everything his all or his angry with no limits or remorse. No, where in the comic it says it was maximum. Clearly him been superman held back trying not to kill.
On that note, I don't get notifications. So I will reply when I check my last comment sometime later.
The feat difference is miles apart. Superman was flying and shaking dimensions the power, speed and force he was coming with is enough to shatter more than mere planets. Naturally on his own superman is able to absorb much more sunlight.
I know this might hurt some feelings. Superman always stays sun starving. He does this so he can stay on earth to live a semi-normal life. He has said it many times over the years. I think one of his lines was a glass always half full.
Its simple people may claim amp but it has always been his power. Now the levels in which he chooses to stay makes him a rather powerful character. Let me put it like this. You stay hungry to blend in. If you are full you are too powerful and stand out.
So claiming amp or crying amp when it is his own course of power.
@termiteone4ever: Are you referring to PC Shaggy Man or N52? PC Shaggy tanked her and Superman hitting him at the speed of sound, while N52 Shaggy was pretty badly nerfed and not the durable brick he used to be.
He seemed a little Nerfed. Shaggy man is powerful but WW wasn't so kind with that feat. The PC shaggy was no joke. I recall all his appearance. I didn't like what DC did to him in damage comics. Now that was a nerf nerf. If recall he did fight Aquaman. It did show some of his PC powers.
