yeah i hate superman, i dont even watch BvS. but watchmen showed us that overpowered character can still makes a good movie with great storyline.
it also applies to my anime refference, i hate those stupid overpowered anime character and those kids comparing which one is stronger. come on kids, any writer can make overpowered character, but good story is rare.
for example. batman is relatively weak as you mentioned.... but most of his solo villians are jokes in comparison. the penguin! riddler!
the fantastic four and xmen have galactic level enemies who are often far more powerful then they are.
despite the overall superiority, imo, of marvel, DC has hit amazing individual highs. no marvel character has attained the popularity of batman. likewise 2 of my favorite villians, joker and lex Luthor are DC.
interesting. to my knowledge dc is the home of OP heros superman, wonderwoman, etc, and relatively underpowered villians. yes superman's villians are powerful... but compared to superman, not really.
marvel on the other hand has more limited heros and overpowered villians.
this is of course based of entry level stories such as those made into cartoons, not end level stories like ironman's ultra suits or mr. fantastics interdimentional council of himselves. they do go crazy in the comics eventually, but with such hyperpowered villains that's probably inevitable.
I have passed that phase of idolizing overpowered character and enjoy more on storyline, and with that my list of best superhero movies are all on DC, dark knight trilogy and watchmen
