It's that power can be innocent.In a statement that could also apply to the current state of American politics, Lex Luthor points out that those who claim that power can be used for good are likely lying.

Lex Luthor: The greatest gladiator match in the history of the world, god versus man, day versus night.
Lois Lane: You're psychotic.
Lex Luthor: That is a three-syllable word for any thought too big for little minds.
Alfred Pennyworth: Master Wayne, thermal imaging is showing me two dozen hostiles on the third floor. Why don't I drop you off on the second?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: I'm getting slow in my old age, Alfred.
Alfred Pennyworth: Even you got too old to die young, not for lack of trying.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: He has the power to wipe out the entire human race. If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty.Bruce Wayne/Batman feels that Superman's power is unchecked and therefore, dangerous to the human race. He doesn't know that Superman is evil or would use his power improperly, but doesn't want to take the chance either way.
