What you say is true, however if you recall, Hulk's first punch not only sent Supes flying, but had him momentarily knocked out as well. And Superman had to put his mind to it in order to just stand there and take Hulk's punches. Moreover, as Hulk was getting stronger, Supes actually had to start blocking the punches because he was beginning to feel them.

Lord Majestros:
Superman tossed Hulk into wall IIRC and rubble came down on Hulk. Supes thought he was KOed and went over to check on him and Hulk sent him flying out of the city. There was ZERO indication Supes was KOed by this. Supes was able to stand there and take the punches he took because unlike the other punch, he was ready for it. Supes even made a comment to this effect to Spider-Man about not being ready for the other punch and that this was not the case now and basically said when he didn't want to be moved, no force on earth could move him. And again, the main point of this was that this Hulk's rage had to be artificially driven up by an outside force (Doom's device) to even begin to bother the Superman he was fighting. It was an alternate earth where Marvel and DC characters both existed so the whole thing's a moot point anyway.
