down for the count
You've got to realize ... it's not every day you see Superman down for the count!
What does "down for the count" mean?
Re: down for the count
It's taken from boxing.
When a boxer is knocked down and cannot get back up he is down for the count.
In other words the person concerned is hurt and losing the fight.
