I suspect though that she would probably get her butt handed to her if she were to fight Wonder Woman or Martian Manhunter since they would be right up there in strength but without the Kryptonian weak points that she is using to cripple Supes. So in this case her fighting skills seems especially suited to battling other Kryptonians but we have no proof that she is as well rounded a fighter as Wonder Woman.

Fair enough but Martial arts is martial arts.

I'm more interested though in just how dangerous such an opponent would be for Superman - it's basically what Wonder Woman is made up to be right?
If you gave Shang Chi that sort of power would you agree he'd demolish Superman and if so why isn't WW capable of that sort of clear advantage?

Or to be blunt - is she overrated in that regard? >:-|

I don't think WW is over rated and she would be every bit as deadly (perhaps more so) to Superman if she knew of the Kryptonian weak points as this lady does. Lets face it, no matter how strong the opponent, Supes can take a martial arts punch, chop or kick with the best of them. Its not so much her Martial Arts that is making the difference in this fight but the fact that she knows exactly where to hit Supes to get the maximum results.
