Wellllll.... to be honest, there was a version of Superman that would strip others of their abilities, their freedoms, their very minds if he saw fit; this was the Justice Lords Superman:
Originally, this version of Supes had one (one and a half, maybe?) appearances in the 2000s Justice League cartoon, as an alternate reality version of "our" DCAU Superman. He was in line with that Supes... right up until he did, well...see for yourself:
That's right: not only did this version of the hero take a human life, but that life belonged to the then Leader of the Free world. Granted, that leader was Lex Luthor, who so happened to personally kill that reality's Flash, but still... Superman "all life is precious" of the house of El just straight murdered President Lex and quipped about it! And both Batman and Wonder Woman basically gave him NO OPPOSITION!
This was basically an extreme reaction to evil, brought about by the Flash's death. It lead to the JL basically forming a totalitarian regime where no crime or villainy is tolerated, and they had every government on earth on lock:
Now, to be fair, in the Cartoon they were more portrayed as "Well intentioned Extremists" who simply went to great lengths to prevent loss of life. Those lengths, though, included everything from censoring the media, instituting martial law and invading a whole other dimension....
to locking up "our" heroes to affect change...
To keeping supervillians everything from sedated to mind controlled in lockup areas:
From these clips you can see, their Superman especially, ain't no joke. He leaves his super strong robot duplicates to guard the nuthouses (whom themselves will not "tolerate violence or a bad attitude" while _crushing people's faces into walls!), is willing to kill "our" Lex... dude straight lobotomized Doomsday in their first encounter, where as "our" Supes [in the comics and the show] was willing to draw that fight out and not use deadly force unless absolutely necessary!
Yeah...Justice Lord Superman gots no time, no chill, and absolute zero FTG.
Ironically, how did our JL manage to stop these equally powerful "heroes"? Why, by having Lex Luthor build a Power Disruptor that works by "disrupting exotic energies" and taking away their powers:
One would think this would be the end of it...buuuuuut, as it was continued in the comics, it was revealed this nullifier could only strip them of their abilities temporarily; in less than a year, Anti-Supes was back in his own dimension, and this time more pissed off and willing to do whatever it took! He reformed his old team best as he could, Basically him and Lady Wonder Woman) took out their Batman (who had become their conscience) and basically went "Injustice" on them, to a degree:
Dude all but took out Batman Beyond, and his Justice League on his own!
The story gets very convoluted, with the Batman Beyond older version of "our" Superman, plus another WW from a different dimension, her having a kid with Lord Superman, and... yeah, it's nuts. But from that comic, he just got more ruthless, taking his "Well Intentioned Extremist" from the cartoon, dialing up to 11 and going straight "Megalomaniac Iron Fist Ruler" who would still be willing to kill...but had to abide by the new Wonder Woman ruling "alongside" him for peace. So, in that world, they would also strip metahumans of their powers, change their personalities, or at least keep them under heavy sedation.
These methods were actually addressed in the comic, and it was a whole, interesting moral discussion, but it wasn't really the focal point of the story.
I only pointed it out to show that this has happened before in a few differing cases.
