IF Superman was on the Marvel earth, and was dispatched as Sentry was to "bring him in"...

Could the "Wolf man" actually find a way to defeat Big Blue?

IF he got intel on Supermans vulnerability to Red Sun Radiation or a stash of Kryptonite and had enough time to lay a trap then sure he could defeat Superman. But the odds on such a scenario occuring are slim to non-existent. If it were that easy Luthor would have ended him years ago...
His adamantium claws have been very effective on various substances and opponents over the years but i'm hard pressed to think of any examples with an opponent with the sheer invulnerability of Superman - Namor isn't that invulnerable, neither is Thor or the Hulk. Definitly not Ben Grimm and certainly not the Rhino. It might be interesting to consider that historically he could never affect Juggernauts armour, or Vindicators forcefield for example. Then there was Warhawk, the Blob and he has occasionally struggled to mark Collossus(Uncanny Annual 7?) and the Hulk.
In any normal circumstance Wolverine has Zero chance of making an impression on Superman and I would thnk it would be like his 'fight' with the Jackal back in Action #682.
By way of comparison a good point of reference to consider here is that even with an opponent as formidable as Doomsday, technically more powerful than Superman himself, he has repeatedly struggled to break Supermans skin with his imbedded spikes and in high-pitch duels .frequently lasting hours. 
Wolverine would need for his arm to be braced against something absolutely rigid and unyielding and for Superman to dive into the extended claws full pelt... even then it might only be superficial injury Superman comes away with.
