No.. the real misconception is that 9mm is really comparable to 40.
45acp and 40S&W are much more similar in their performance.
They're all equally mediocre in their performance on target, with highly marginal differences in terms of terminal effect. Thinking otherwise betrays your status as a ballistic layperson. I've seen you post long arguments on this forum that eventually drive you to admit you base your opinion not on empiricism but just "how you feel about it".
If we were talking about hunting, .45 ACP has some pretty clear advantages. We are not however discussing that.
