OK so here's what I wanna know...

How do all these Kryptonian's come to Earth and just have fully developed powers and know how to use them instantly? I mean aren't all Kryptonian's human like on Krypton under the red sun? I didn't think any gained powers until their bodies started absorbing the radiation of a yellow sun like a solar battery?

So if I'm understanding Kryptonian's biology correctly then, they should come to Earth and have awhile before they even start to develop these new powers let alone know how to use them. I mean like I can see how Kara has her powers seeing as she was in suspended animation for the past 20 years or so but still she shouldn't just be woken up and know how to fly and use the different kinds of vision and other abilities she has.

Right? confused

That is a very good point. They should be normal on Krypton, so it should take them a bit to master thier abilities when they come to earth. As far as developing the abilities I think it's a kryptonian puberty thing. Once your an adult you have all your powers, however you are the same as a human when your on Krypton and super powerful on earth.

However there is the possibility that there is some other way that they charge that battery when they are on krypton. Like the crystals that are everywhere. But I don't know Superman mythology enough to know.

They're not always in the red sun right? There are shadows and what not.

I don't know what I'm talking about.

Good point wink

Kryptonians knew about there super powers under yellow suns. I mean for example its harder to do complex algebra equations when you don't know you can do them if you know what I mean, I know what I mean... If you could breathe under water then chances are you would never find out as your not likely to try. I like to think its the same sort of thing, kara knows she can fly and what not so quite simply she can its like a natural thing for Kryptonians when exposed to yellow sunlight.
