That's exactly what Bruce Lee did though. He was pretty much the closest to a real life superhero we had.
What you're describing in the comics is actually the opposite. Where a Batman who looks like he's 250 lbs is depicted bouncing around a like gymnast.
There's nothing about size that equals being a better fighter. Look at some of the best MMA fighters out there they look nothing like bodybuilders.
Even in the heavyweight division, this man
absolutely destroyed this guy in a fight.
