I'd say the first GIF is kind of a generic, superhero action scene. That could be one of dozens of heroes. The second one is one of those is trademark Superman, which happens to be both dramatic and funny, and is only possible if you don't dumb down the character's strength like they did in S1 of JL and all of STAS.
The point is, you can have Superman is kind of powerful, you can have him nearly unstoppable, or you can have him somewhere in between, and any of those can make for good stories. I happen to dislike the kind of powerful, as I thought it was lazy on the writers' part, as evidenced by the fact that they admitted to toning him down for ease of conflict-writing and the fact that they were able to up his power and still tell good stories.
