Please Elaborate on your posts. Don't spend all your posting life No-Texting, it's kind of insulting, Or do you think you're above the rest of us....?

Why/how does Hercules overpower this particular OTT opponent?

I've read appearances with the current version of Herc. I've read appearances of Superboy Prime. I have NOT read every appearance by either one, so there could very well be key information I'm missing, but as with anything I'll base my opinion on what I have and revise that opinion later, if new information requires it.
From what I've seen, this Skyfather version of Herc is an über-Skyfather, at least in par with the high-level Skyfathers we've seen in the past such as Odin, if not a step up from that. I didn't read the bit where they explained how he got that way or why he is so high-end but that's the impression I got. And he is apparently the one to go one-on-one with the Chaos King, who seems to be now well above Skyfather level.
Superboy Prime, in the instances I saw, was an approximation of what a Pre-Crisis Kryptonian would be like in the Post-Crisis DCU given an extreme amount of time to master his powers.
He was able to take on several top tiers simultaneously, and had a surprising resistance to über attacks that you might expect to take him out, but still able to be affected significantly in some cases by regular top tiers or even somewhat below. I recall seeing him affected by Superman, Superboy, and Impulse.
If I had to categorize him, I'd say he is a high-level Teambuster, possibly above Thanos but below the likes of Odin. Skyfather Herc seems to be operating at Odin levels or higher.
I agree Prime is an Over-the-Top character, but so is this version of Herc. If I had to guess, and I'm not saying it wouldn't be a fight, I'd say Herc takes it.
