Since his inception, Superman has been given more unchecked power than a Texan police officer with only half as much oversight by the people in charge of making sure he doesn’t do anything stupid. As a result, the Man of Steel quickly became a hero for whom even the mightiest of foes proved no challenge because he invariably had a power that would allow him to turn their asshole inside out before they even moved. As it turns out, even Superman’s writers were sick of writing story after story about Superman effortless solving yet another problem by punching it to death, which explains why they invented a character whose entire shtick is that he could shatter Superman’s offensively lantern shaped jaw.
When it comes to war, you’d expect that the side with the biggest guns, most advanced technology and soldiers who look most like Chuck Norris would win, but history has shown time and time again that, that isn’t always the case.

Few moments in the Batman mythos are treated with as much derision and disdain by fans as that one time in the 1960’s TV show Adam West Batman fends off an angry about-to-explode shark with a can of shark repellent spray.

You know, just in case a shark wants to start some shit.
