      Energy drain is hardly a auto win against Superman due to his experience with energy drainers like Parasite and his own high resistance to such attacks.


        It has hardly come into play with high level energy manipulators like Green Lantern (Kyle has actually drained power cosmic itself from Parallax), Captain Atom etc.


          Surfer doesn't use energy drain that much either. He is not Quasar or Rogue.

    The closest Surfer has come to fighting a Superman analogue in Marvel is Gladiator, and Surfer's immediate response was the he could manipulate Gladiator's energies to beat him easily. That tells me Surfer could do the same to Superman. Surfer's energy manipulation is at a much higher level than Parasite's, Kyle's, Quasar's, and most versions of Captain Atom's.


Actually Surfer said he knew Gladiator had a radiation weakness and could use it to beat him. But in actual practice when he fought Krosakis with Gladiator's powers, he used only energy blasts.

Surfer has been shown inferior to Quasar twice in energy manipulation. Once against Dampyre who defeated Surfer by draining him and then Quasar overloaded him in the very next issue. Second time was against Ego in Maximum Security where Surfer nearly died trying to absorb Ego's energy but Quasar absorbed all of Ego's power.

Parasite, Kyle and Atom all have feats putting them ahead of Surfer in energy manipulation.
