Since 4X games involve managing a large, detailed empire, game sessions usually last longer than other strategy games. Game sessions may require several hours of play-time, which can be particularly problematic for multiplayer matches. For example, a small-scale game in Sins of a Solar Empire can last for over 12 hours. However, fans of the genre sometimes expect and embrace these long game sessions; Emrich wrote that "when the various parts are properly designed, other X's seem to follow. Words like EXcite, EXperiment and EXcuses (to one's significant others)". Turn-based 4X games typically divide these sessions into hundreds of turns of gameplay.

Superman hits this level in his stronger incarnations, especially during the later Pre-Crisis era. As far back as the 1940s, he treated blowing out a star as a casual feat to impress someone. An evil version of the character, Superboy Prime, destroyed several universes out of apathy during his rampage across creation, and one of Superman's Bronze Age antagonists, Maaldor the Darklord, was powerful enough to collapse many surrounding realities, even while Superman could cold-clock the guy. Flying through several stars in a row once gave the Man of Steel enough energy to nearly punch out the creator of the multiverse, and a fight between two different Supermen from alternate realities once threatened to tear apart time and space itself as a side effect. The 75th anniversary comic, Strange Visitor, suggests that given enough time, Superman will eventually surpass Mxyzptlk, albeit only after billions of years of developing his powers. Seeing as Superman is supposedly fueled by our sun, he seems to be very efficient.
