I am sure other characters have done it over the past, but I know that at least since the Max Fleischer cartoons Superman has been defeating city-destroying atomic death rays by punching them in their energy-faces. It's a pretty unusual signature move which really makes you wonder just what in the heck is going on with Kryptonian physiology.
Superman Punches Energy Beams!
That's pretty irresponsible behavior.
Those deflected beams could cause all kinds of collateral damage.
Standing there and taking the shots in the chest might be "boring" Clark but at least it breaks the beams up and dissipates them in a less dangerous way.
No wonder they call Bruce the smart one. >.>
