Yeah, it really is just a matter of writing. Quite a few superheroes are way overpowered and unstoppable if writers want them to be. Who would be able to stop The Flash if you wanted to write him as invincible, which you could. But then some other time Heat Wave gives him problems. Same goes for Superman, but writing like that is no fun, so he has difficulty fighting Metallo or Toy Man, while Hal Jordan has trouble with Sonar. And when Despero comes around, EVERYONE at once has trouble fighting him, but if a writer was so inclined, I could see them having Superman defeat him alone. I mean, I have seen Superman punch out Darkseid, after all. I guess the trick is that, whatever it is you are writing, make it believable to your audience and get them invested in it.
