No way Superman can kill the most powerful version of Godzilla with one punch.

If we're talking japanese Godzilla, no (post-Heisei era though, although I'm not entirely sure Superman could kill the original Godzilla with one punch only). If we're talking about Zilla, then Superman would not only kill him, he would obliterate him.

It's hard to give a definite 'yes' for Krang. The durability of the talking brain might be very high, for all we know.

A) Megatron (YES)

The impact from a full force punch would collapse his chest and the residual force of the concussion of the hit would rend him ASUNDER. Imagine if the Megatron had an A-Bomb in his chest and it went off.

B) Hellboy (I DON"T KNOW)

But I would lean towards yes given my statement above. Historically Superman has problems with mystical events and characters.

C) normal-level Hulk (YES)

Superman's speed could overwhelm the Hulk's reflexes, placing a Punch to the temple could render the brain dysfunctional (dead). with the brain shut down, there's no electrical signal to direct the body to start the repair process.

D) Spider-Man (YES)

No contest here. Superman overwhelms Spider-Man on on every level.

E) Wolverine (YES)

Wolverine is the most over rated character in the history of comics. See my answer for A. I also see Wolverine's rib cage punched through his flesh like an airbag.

F) Colossus (YES) with the Gem of Cyttorak (I'm not sure)

Until recently Colossus has been a lower strength level than the Hulk. I think Superman's Speed also plays a a factor but the mystical element here throws a huge wrench in to the scenario but it's usually about spells and perception. Juggernaut is a character about force and Superman has that in spades . . . Im on that fence about this one.

G) Krang (YES)

See A

H) King Kong (YES)

Think of Superman's Punch like a Bullet to the head of creature that large with the fantastic destructive force of an A-Bomb. Any creature of flesh an bone could not withstand that kind of impact.

I) Godzilla YES)

Same as above

I don't know why people keep understimating Godzilla. He's not in King Kong's level.

I might underestimate him because I don't know a great deal about him. But I can swear that I've seen Godzilla bloodied by lesser characters or armament than what Superman is capable of.

@JohnnyZ256: Not holding back, Superman kills them all.

Except for Colossus is he possess's the Juggernaut's powers and possibly the Hulk. I'm not sure what his base strength, durability is these days, but I don't think it's enough to resist getting his skull caved in by a Superman not holding back.
