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? >:-|

You seem to fail to understand every confrontation Diana and Kal have had.

Diana has never once attempted to put Kal down. In every fight they have had she was trying to save him whereas this Kryptonian female was trying to DEFEAT him. Theres a massive difference.

Why would Diana inflict unnecessary harm on Kal? Why would she use pressure points to make him go out of control (and possibly hurt himself OR others)?

It doesnt make sense.

As you noted prior, Diana has used pressure point attacks before. Shes a martial artist. Should she be able to do that? Yes, of course. Would she? Of course not.
