This is one of the more extreme versions of PIS and jobber I've ever read.

The Nazis did everything right, all the time, every time.

More than that, where did the Nazi guys get the logistical support? Where did they get these soldiers from?

Being the only superhumans would be a big advantage sure, but not so much against an entire world. Even if they won all fights, someone would go nuclear

The nukes probably turned people into Nazis.

neo nazis and the like. And you know, you've got your Leagues of Assassins, your cults of Kobra. Supervillain lackies aren't hard to find

I hate it when we see heroes/villains in their own titles use solutions to a problem only to fail to solve the exact same problem in someone else's title.

This shield? It is similar to a comic where they simply towed an asteroid with pinpoint precision and fired it like a gun. I'm sure a Green Lantern could hit a building on earth from way outside the earth's atmosphere, John Stewart once fired a bullet from the crust of Mogo to it's core, and there are aliens with far better vision than a human in the corps. And the rings would be able to find the source of the energy field even if they had to cause a few thousand casualties, they'd still be saving lives.

Even if Colonel Nazi attacked the meteorite, maybe they could just use a material that he'd struggle with (random super dense metal etc).

Barring that: In that minute that the shield was done they could have had a planetary level telepath take out the Nazis (we know that there are a few in this universe). We could have had someone with time dilation powers go down and ensure the machine was destroyed by the projectile.

They could have used spaceships instead of relying on the same technology which failed the first batch of Green Lanterns, and made it down safely...

The technology angle makes no sense at all. The "Darkness Engine" not only suppresses magic and superpowers, it suppresses all the usable combat technology of the Green Lanterns, Darkstars, Omega Men, and the R.E.B.E.L.S. put together? They have the tech of a dozen interstellar civilizations at their fingertips, including the friggin' Guardians, and they've got Vril Dox plus a dozen lesser geniuses to play with it! Hell, they have Earth's technology at their fingertips; whatever weapons are working within the field, they can just duplicate them and drop them from space.

One of the things I loved about Invasion! was its recognition that, if all of space comes to fight us, we just lose. DC Earth is badass, but not that badass. And since most of its badassery comes from superpeople in the first place...yeah, this doesn't work.

I kinda wonder why aliens would care that much, honestly.

The DCU earth doesn't have a contentious relationship with the rest of the galaxy the way the MU does. By in large, its 'live and let live'. Hell, they didn't even care about who won the first world war
