Homelander is a combination of Captain America and Superman. He has all of Superman’s powers with Captain America’s persona. Well, that’s how he looks to the public. In reality, he’s a jerk in red, white, and blue. He’s killed innocent people without a care in the world, abandoned a plane full of people and threatened to kill them while they were scared. He was also willing to let Stormfront’s racism slide. Every so often he’d question her, but he still did nothing. Now, he has no girlfriend, he can’t see his son, and Starlight is back on the Seven. He’s worse off than when he started.

Homelander would end up getting regularly beaten by Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman – together or individually. All of them have beaten beings like him. Heck, they’ve beaten literal gods. Homelander would lose to these DC heroes because he’s easily tricked and manipulated.

Lex Luthor could give Homelander a Kryptonite suit and Superman would trick him out of it. Don’t let him fight Wonder Woman. She’d do things to him that would leave him crying. And Batman, well, he’s Batman. If he has a plan to stop the entire Justice League, what chance does Homelander have? Less than zero.

He’d be lucky to end up in the DC Comics Universe because Thor would probably kill him before he even got there because of the things he’s done. Actually, so would Wonder Woman.
