    I haven't seen the film. I heard about this and scene a clip on line where Supermans has a smug smile as he easily beasts Steppenwolf.

Supes could beat down Steppenwolf  but he wouldn't stay down. In truth Supes could have handle him all by himself and if he wanted to could probably beat him unconscious.

    So, doesn't this beg the question of why you need the Justice League when you have Superman? What is the point of all the other heroes if Superman can single-handidly solve the problem in a few minutes at best?

I agree, the rest of the team is made to look useless next to Superman. Wonder Woman and Aqua Man were just distractions to Stepenwolf while Cyborg worked his magic. Wonder Woman looked much better in her movie and I was wonder where she was? Superman spent more time saving people than he did beating on Steppenwolf.  

    The other is a common criticism is Superman is overpowered. Unless you have kryptonite or another Kryptonian outnumbering him nothing hurts him. The complaint is there is no suspense in his films and he is even harder to relate to. Doesn't this film only reinforce that idea?

I agree Supes pretty much punked the rest of the team. In order to justify even having a team they would need more villains to fight or power up everyone else to Supes level. This film more than reinforces that Supes is greater than the rest of the team. Wow is all I can say about this movie.
