He didn’t even reach his full strength’ limit. He could press a larger weight. It’s the machine that reached its own limit. At the end of the end, Superman only sheds only a single drop of sweat.

So in conclusion, no one can match his godly strength. One question is definitely arise in your mind that Batman has defeated and beat him several times in the history of DC comic book. But in fact according to the Bruce Wayne,

“If Clark wanted to, he could use his super speed and squish me into the cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the Kryptonite, he’s got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark’s essentially a good person…and deep down, I’m not.”

Now you would believe in Superman because this is one of the greatest Superhero, Batman’s statement.
