    So, is DM out of Superman's league, or in his wheelhouse for physical fight?

No, but then you have to have Superman fight with sophistication, and not just punch.

    On the one hand, Superman can fight guys like Capt Atom (Charleton precursor of DM) and Firestorm. But CA/FS has never (to my knowledge) been shown as a casual reality/molecule manipulator like the Molecule Man or somesuch.

When did Doctor Manhattan every show the ability to alter reality? If he did, the conclusion of Watchmen was totally unnecessary.

    So, would DM therefore be able to physically obliterate Superman with a have of his hand a la Rorschach? If not, why not?

We just saw in "Superman Reborn" that you can't just obliterate Superman with a wave of the hand. Have a go at "Superman: Where is Thy Sting", for a much better example.

    What are Superman's options outside of a purely physical confrontation?

Plenty, but let's see what shapes up.
