Hmmmm,maybe. He's not exactly Superman level, more like a low tier kryptonian, but i don't ever see him too underestimated either.

He is on Superman's level or very close to it. The clash they had ended in a stalemate with neither one causing the other significant damage. In JLA: World's Collide, Icon punched Superman through the Watchtower into space; his hand was sore afterwards but with his healing factor, it healed in seconds. Superman even said that Icon's punch was the hardest he'd ever been hit.

The problem is that he's so underused. When DC decided to include him & Rocket in the YJ series, I was overjoyed; sadly the only episodes that featured them speaking were the last two episodes of season 1 before the Invasion timeskip.

Icon should be able to beat up Superman if Icon learns more kung fu than Superman. Icon could also try using a giant knife or giant gun from his home planet Terminus.
