In the fight, Superman’s vulnerability to magic does not seem to be put in display. Black Adam holds back due to a simple misunderstanding between the two.

Superman is not holding back. He attacks with “a punch that would have split the moon in half.” Black Adam turns his back. Superman relinquishes the attack!
