The maximum age for Superman is arguable....but I believe the facts to support a methuselah-like Superman are fairly recent.....but my question involved normal(red-sun)Kryptonians?
Not the way it works. it only takes a Kryptonian a few days to develop their powers fully under a Yellow sun. Zod's a solider and Kryptonians actually do know the effect of the yellow sun on their bodies, having at one point been galactic conquerers in their history.

My opinions are are my own and do not reflect those of DC comics,Warner Bros, Marvel Entertainment, Walt Disney, IDW Publishing, Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Action Lab Entertainment unless otherwise stated.
