He wasn't QUITE Superman-level, but in his next storyline, was more than a match for most of the Justice League (admittedly, it WAS the Joke League of America, but it had Big Barda and Martian Manhunter on the team).

When Bruce jumped him, Despero broke both of his arms and tossed him away like a pile of garbage. One of the very few moments in that run that'll really suck you in. Certainly beat French-Canadian trapper Amazo...
