    Quote:
    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.


    Quote:
    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.


    Quote:
    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.


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


Plenty, but let's see what shapes up.
