    He didn't really perform any outstanding feats...
    He might be weaker because of his age....then again...
    He could be arguably more durable since he was apparently no longer as vulnerable to greenn K.

    Most likely, yes. He's older meaning he's had more time to use his powers/soak up energy. He's also had numerous battles and better experience.

    Overall, probably twice as fast/strong...

    He is a lot more powerful. He is immune to Kryptonite and can take a nuclear blast without any effects. While he is still weak to magic he manages to shrug off Captain Marvel's lightning bolt and rips off his cape, regular Supes could never do that.

    I'd put him a bit over Kal-L in terms of power.

    I always thought KC supes was a GOD compared to any other supes because he's super-saturated with yellow sun. Heck, it's made him invulnerable to kryptonite; it's also the source of his power. If his power is proportional to the sun he receives, I'd say he's as powerful as 2 supermans.

    JSA #10 has some impressive feats from him.

    I think that was almost a direct quote from the book.

    There is another issue where older superman (mid 40's ?) comes back to the past and fights young superman (20's). The older one was clearly stronger.
