Everything about him is super. Hence why he's called Superman.

I think it had more to do with the era in which the character was created. He was one of the first super heros, so calling him something unoriginal like Superman was fine. Back then, people had lower expectations as to what would quantify being "super", so being able to fly and having superhuman strength worked. If you look at the first Japanese live action superhero, Starman, his ability is being able to fly and he has a watch that allows him to speak and understand any language in the galaxy. Later on, he gains the ability to bend metal (pretty funny watching him bend little Timmy's gun), but I'm sure that was likely inspired by Superman comics being brought over to Japan.

He is super handsome...probably the most handsome man on earth hence the name...

His feats, but Wonder Woman is as strong and an better all-round fighter than he is. He was also able to withstand up to 2 hits from Darkseid's Omega Beams (only other thing that can kill him besides kryptonite, though more resilient to this in the new reboot of the classic comics, red suns and magic), which are frightening and can easily vaporize even the biggest extraterrestrial mountains ever recorded by NASA.
