|Shattering Blow: Superman's SPECIAL ATTACKS have a chance to SHATTER equipment, temporarily disabling all gear on the opponent.|
Dawn of Justice Superman is a formidable bruiser; with balanced base stats that used to be the combined-highest in the game. He is the first of two characters in the game to have a passive that disable gear (Solomon Grundy/Earth 2 being the second one).
Players who only completed his Challenge when it first aired during the 2.8 update could not directly promote him with Power Credits (but this has been fixed as of the 2.10 update). Spare copies are also a rare drops in the Dawn of Justice Packs (as mentioned above), but these will not unlock him for direct promotion.
|Basic combo||Damage pattern (% of damage stat)||Total (including Combo Ender)|
|Light (Combo Ender)||2% - 2% - 2% - (3%)||9%|
|Heavy||4% - 4% - 4%||12%|
Shattering Blow can trigger on opponents whose gears are already disabled and the duration will not stack.
Shattering Blow can trigger on Aquaman/Prime's Atlantean Hero, but this has no practical effect as he does not benefit from gear, and disabling him does not affect Aquaman himself.
It has no effect on the 3-piece LexCorp Set's damage every second effect. Additionally, it will stop BOTH the regeneration and also the resurrection effects of the Fourth World Set's full set effect that were started prior to Shattering Blow being applied, despite that the healing animation is still being played.
Gear effects that have already been applied (e.g. The Ibistick's burn) will continue to run even if the gear is disabled.
Shattering Blow will ignore Invulnerability (as well as Harley Quinn's unique form of invulnerability after using her damage boost in her SP2) and disable gear, although it will not remove the currently active invulnerability.
Shattering Blow never triggers on opponents without gear, but by definition, it would have no effect in the first place.
Please note that battles are highly situational: this section only mentions cards that have mechanics that, for any reason, are particularly effective with/against, or particularly ineffective against Superman. Having a card that "counters" Superman does not mean it is always a good choice.
- Any opponents who are typically geared more heavily than others and become much more effective with gearing, such as (though obviously not limited to) Killer Frost (both versions), Batgirl, Bane/Luchador, Deathstroke/Arkham Origins, and The Flash/Metahuman.
- Superman/Injustice 2, Batman/Dawn of Justice, The Flash/Wally West Rebirth, Riddler's Staff, Mother Box: These characters and gears can evade specials, avoiding the “Shattering Blow” caused by Superman's passive.
- Solomon Grundy/Earth 2 & Killer Frost/Prime: They decrease power generation, thus making it harder for Superman to reach his special attacks.
Here are Superman's abilities.

These stats are the final damage and health levels at level 50, per Elite rank, with ALL support cards, and without any augmentations. With the 2.13 update, Elite 8, 9, and 10 have been added. The Elite 10 damage and health levels are for level 60 characters.
- His artifacts are: Chest Piece, Kryptonian Key, Boots, Newspaper, and Cape.
- Dawn of Justice Superman was first officially revealed in a preview on the WB Games forums, although he could be seen in the previous preview for Batman/Dawn of Justice.
- His Flying Punch hits 3 times instead of 1 as is the norm for all prior Superman characters. It resembles the meter burn version of Flying Punch from the console rather than the normal version.
- His SP2 is a combination of Charge Punch, Unstoppable (Superman/Prison's SP2), Heat Zap (Superman/Godfall's Combo ender) and Heat Vision (Superman/Regime's SP2) from the console.
- There is a minor grapical error on the last part as the scorch path of the heat vision appears ahead of the actual beams.
- When his passive, Shattering Blow, is activated, he punches his opponent and a "breaking" glass sounds comes on, displaying the blow that shatters the opponent's gear(s).
- He is the only Superman character who doesn't have higher health than damage.
- The Chinese version of Injustice mobile incorrectly refers to him as "Batman" in the passive description.
