Please J. take the day off \:\-\*

It is a perfectly reasonable question, Nerve attacks and pressure points are a quick and harmless means of achieving her objectives in any Superman fight. Stopping and subduing him in an efficient clean manner without having to take his every punch and assault and wondering if you will survive it....

This style of fighting has never been exploited with Superman or his peers which is a shame as it would be interesting to see him face such a superior physically skilled opponent, a real credible challenge.


If he was asleep or incapacitated how would she free him?

In both fights she was attempting to break a mental or magical hold - so knocking him out (in whatever way possible) would accomplish what exactly?

In the Max Lord incident she knew that the only way to free Kal would be to confront Max - and at THAT point she did incapacitate Kal - inflicting a wound she knew he would heal from - WITHOUT him losing conciousness.
