    On one hand, the Silver Surfer is rightly considered the most powerful Marvel hero. The Power Cosmic lets him do nearly anything required by story. He has a long list of powers that allow easy wins and is sometimes called upon to easily defeat threats no one else can handle.

Very High Level Herald/Low Level Skyfather Level.

    On the other, he sometimes struggles with threats he should have an easy time with. Frequently, he forgets about his powers aside from cosmic blasts. You even have a few rare instances like the infamous brick incident.

Which is the only explanation as to why he usually loses to Thor. If he used even half his powers, he'd easily wipe the floor with Thor. But instead, he fights like a total idiot who forgets how to use his powers.

    Superman (can he energy drain him?)

Idiot Surfer struggles but eventually wins in a good fight. Surfer at full potential wins so quickly, it's not even a fight.

    Wonder Woman

    Martian Manhunter

Any version of Surfer wins against these two.


See Superman

    Blue Marvel

See Superman

    Current Iron Man

Any version of Surfer wins.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
