Post Crisis, fans and some writers keep getting this messed up.

The Byrned Superman isn't especially weak to magic.  He has the same reaction to magic that an ordinary man would have.

That having been said, the actual portrayals show him recovering from magical attacks quite nicely (JLA: Primevil, Kingdom Come) when he should be outright killed if he truly were just a normal man facing magics that could dust a mortal human.

Hello.  Just joined.

Hmmm.  A DC character that can defeat Superman?

A young woman by the name of Amy Winston better known as Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld.

She was able to do something that no other hero has been able to duplicate.  Wrynn the son of Prince Topaz and Lady Sapphire made a deal with the Entropy demons for power.  He took a new name and tried to take over Gemworld.  Amy easily beat him and buried him alive, and thereby giving Wrynn his claustrophobia weakness that would plauge him from then on out.  And Wrynn's new name?  Modru.  Yes.  That Mordru.  The Legion of Super-Heroes' Mordru.  Amethyst single-handly overpowered Mordru.

Probably why DC doesn't want to use Amethyst that much in action/ adventure stories.  She's just WAY too powerful.
