...DON'T understand the true power of Superman. Unfortunately, you also missed true definition of Superman's power. It isn't that he can beat anyone. It isn't even that he is the strongest, baddest, all powerful being in the DC universe. Superman's TRUE power is: he doesn't use his full powers unless it is absolutely necessary. He maintains control, and has the willpower to NOT be corrupted by the fact that he IS a god among men. He tip toes lightly to avoid destroying everything around him. He practices self control, as he lives in a world made of tissue paper. All of this, and he is the symbol of hope... not to mention the front man for DC ;). The best example of Superman's true power is in the DCU Animated movie - Superman VS the Elite.
