Sunstone: Physical crit dmg is the best for superman as he has high physical damage and high physical crit rating.
Moonstone: Physical attack for increased attack, physical resistance for defensive build, physical pierce for fighting against high armor opponents, Health to increase his survivability.
Starstone: Physical crit rating to increase his crit rating even higher, physical attack to increase his damage, health to increase his survivability.

For 7-star superman with mika pet, his health, armor and survivability are already high, hence he can go for full offensive runestones like physical attack, pierce, crit rating etc.
For 5 star and 3-star superman, his health is slightly lower and hence a defensive build can aid him greatly in battles.

Fist of justice is used when his energy is full and fury strike is used depending on enemy team compositions either at start of the battle or during the battle.
Superman gains energy quite fast as his attacks are AOE in nature and hence can use his ultimate skill quite early in the battle.
1. Fist of Justice
It picks the lowest health enemy and both superman and the picked enemy are out of the battlefield for 3 seconds. This allows allies of superman to target other enemies, and superman is invulnerable during this skill.

2. Heat Vision
Heat vision is used at the start of battle which deals AOE damage to entire enemy party, also depending on strength or agility mode this skill reduces physical armor or physical hit of all enemies. This skill deals huge damage and at the same time makes the enemies weaker.
3. Justice unleashed
This skill is used after heat vision and it deals AOE damage to enemy party and stuns them. This skill is really great for superman and his allies as the entire enemy party is stunned and their skills interrupted, victory becomes easier. The skill also deals huge AOE damage thereby killing low health enemies or reducing their health greatly.
4. Justice League
This skill allows different ways to use superman depending on the type of enemies he is facing by adjusting the number of frontline or midline heroes. Strength mode makes enemies susceptible for physical damage whereas agility mode makes allies dodge attacks easily. So, if there are high dodge heroes in the party, agility mode is better. If facing a magical enemy combo, strength mode is better.
