I think it’s safe to say that it would be relatively understandable for, say, a Kryptonian, to see humans as inferior.  For example, the scene in Godzilla: King of Monsters where the possibility of relying on Godzilla for protection is raised and someone asks if we would be keeping Godzilla as a pet.  The first character clarifies that no, humanity would collectively be Godzilla’s pet.  I’d say that the ending of Diary of a Toy exemplifies this as it relates to what we do pretty well.  I’ve mused over the idea of a heroine assigned to Earth as, essentially, a wildlife conservationist initiative, or an alien scientist studying superheroes as a concept by acting as one.  To give another, more villainous example, from the villain of Fullmetal Alchemist: “Fools?  I would never call you that.  Do you look at the insects on the ground and consider them fools?”  The point is, how likely would a woman who’s effectively a goddess compared to humans be to see them as peers, especially if she didn’t grow up among them?

Always a great question to ask for any story about superpowered people!
It totally depends on the attitude of the individual who has powers.
Just like with exceptional humans doing things that only some unpowered people can do.

Some hip musicians want nothing to do with square life. Steely Dan's song Deacon Blues: "Learn to work the saxophone, I, I'll play just what I feel. Drink Scotch whisky all night long, and die behind the wheel." Not much chance for a day job in there. But Journey's Steve Perry dropped out of sight, until he showed up singing along at the ball game.

Some smart people join Mensa so they never have to talk to a stupid person again.
But in Ask Marilyn, she's happy to give a smart answer.

Some billionaires build their mansion fortress, or buy the entire 115th floor overlooking Central Park. But Warren Buffet's home is not awesomely splendid.

Why wouldn't it be the same with superpowered people? Some, like Kara in the Supergirl TV series, would be happy to hang out with their normal human friends and appreciate them. Some would want to only be with their own kind, and left alone. Some would hate those who are beneath them, and want to enslave, or hurt and destroy them.

When she can lift a bus full of 'normies' with one hand and with her other arm used to balance her lift, and then smile, then normal people to her don't tend to matter anymore!
She can forget about the weight of all the 60 people she is easily lifting overhead, Ursa doesn't have to even worry about the weight of the half of ton of bus above her.

(eta, I would have posted the YT clip, but she is way over 50MB, which is understandable I suppose!)

Not half a ton... a bus like that completely full of people would weigh closer to 20 tons. 

Not that Ursa/Faora would find that particularly heavy.

Ok, she can round the bus lift up to the twenty ton mark, I am positive Ursa will be comfortable with it all!
