I don't see the point in a physically vulnerable Superman. It's always going to be relative, anyway, and for the most part the root of his undoing is psychological rather than physical. I understand that movies need to introduce a degree of threat into fist fights, but I'm not sure that can be satisfactorily achieved with a demi-god like Superman. It's better, in my opinion, just to create another reason for his defeat. It doesn't need to be Kryptonite; it can be fear for the people he loves or an overly rigid sense of duty.
