I remember a similar thing with the Flash in the Dark Knight Strikes Again where he was forced to run on some sort of hamster wheel generator. Also the Atom was imprisoned in a petri dish.

The biggest problem with that plan is that due to loss in transmission it isn't viable to generate all of the world's power at one location and send it everywhere. There would be too small a portion left when it got to the other end of the planet.

Also, even if there is no poverty induced crime, there would still be some violent crime motivated from other matters, like love affairs gone wrong or certain kinds of mental illness.

I'm aware most mentally ill people aren't violent. However you do hear occasional stories of someone suffering from delusions attacking someone (like that guy who shot Gabrielle Giffords for instance). There's also the matter of people classified as "psychopaths" (which is oddly often not officially classified as a mental illness). I'm just saying if you remove all economic incentive for crime that wouldn't be sufficient to stop stuff like that happening every so often, and Superman could catch it at the beginning with his super hearing and stop anyone from getting hurt.

Diagnosing psychopathy, sociopathy, ASPD and other related disorders is fraught with difficulty. The terms have been thrown around a lot and used in a lot of different ways. Barring that, there is a DSM-IV recognised disorder called Antisocial Personality Disorder, but a lot of people disagree if it is classified correctly (this, and many more DSM-IV controversies). Now, as you have correctly noted, ASPD is a huge indicator for violent or criminal behaviour; in fact, it's in the diagnosis itself. It might be more appropriate to say that violent people have ASPD, not the other way around. ASPD is also believed to be (at least partially) caused by environment. That is, people who have violent or criminal upbringings will frequently have violent or criminal behaviour in adulthood (along with the other criteria for ASPD). Then, is it too much to suggest that the strain of poverty in families and among youths leads to ASPD in adulthood? I think there's a lot of support for a conclusion like that. This, along with the fact that societies with less developed economies and no poverty (ex. hunter-gatherers) usually have a surprising dearth of violent crime, leads me to believe that violence is driven, by and large, by poverty (and overpopulation, and lack of resources, etc.; all these concepts are linked together). I am certain that there are other theories about the origin of violence but I am sticking by this one.

As was said, matters are in dispute, and many experts claim that the classic definition of psychopathy is not the same thing as ASPD as it is currently defined. Also, it isn't entirely due to environmental causes, and there is evidence of a strong genetic factor. Also hunter-gatherer societies are not completely lacking in violence. They may have violence motivated by other factors, but the fact is when your community that you have frequent contact with only 200 people you will rarely encounter crime given worldwide typical crime rates. In addition, pre-modern hunter-gatherer societies were constantly at war with other tribes much of the time.
