                Do you always flagrantly deny what's right there on the page? The first quote above is yours saying, "There is no precedent for Surfer to be a favorite against Superman. In fact Dan Jurgens said Superman would beat Surfer 99 times out of 100."
              Precedent is set by the comics. Quote from Jurgens is just icing on the cake. Jurgens word doesn't sets precedent.
            Icing on what cake? You just claimed there is no precedent, therefore there's no cake on which to add icing. You're not making the least bit of sense while still being a hypocrite by quoting Jurgens while simultaneously saying "interviews are irrelevant" in another thread when the interview completely goes against your point of view.
          Superman being above Surfer. Jurgens can't set precedent because of one statement. It's purely from comics.
        But there is no precedent set in the comics so there can be no icing on any cake, which is what I just wrote before but you just repeated yourself nonsensically!
      Yes, there is. Surfer was shown as an underdog against Cyborg Superman and Thor. Both of whom Superman has defeated cleanly.



    Quote:
    First, you're wrong about Surfer and Cyborg Superman. Second, stupid logic. Venom beat up and manhandled Superman and Spider-Man has beaten Venom so Spider-Man > Superman.


How am I wrong about Surfer and Cyborg? Cyborg staggered Surfer, Surfer had to dodge his attacks and Surfer's blasts was easily tanked by Cyborg.

Superman vs Venom is an outlier just like Hulk losing to Spider-Man or Captain America or Surfer getting koed by a brick from Karnak.

                I'm digging? I just pointed out how you brazenly use one Jurgens statement (Superman > Surfer) as evidence while at the same time denying a whole host of Jurgens statements (Doomsday = Superman > Darkseid).
              Because in actual comics Jurgens portrayed Doomsday and Darkseid as far more powerful than Superman.
            Well, that's your unproven assumption. That whole thread was a debate about who's more powerful between Superman and Darkseid. I posted three fights in which Superman outright defeated Darkseid and named three fights in which Superman stalemated Darkseid. You tried to name "far more" and only came up with seven, most of which were not remotely close to wins for Darkseid. In two of those examples, you use a young, inexperienced Superman, which you try to excuse losing to Orion in this very thread for being young. You flip flop on your criteria all the time depending on which character you want to promote.
          That's not even debatable. Superman was unable to scratch apokolptian missiles. Weakened Darkseid evaporated the same missiles.
        Desperation move. Everyone on this board accepts direct head-to-head results way over random feats. Direct head-to-head results: Superman 3, Darkseid 0. Who cares how Superman and Darkseid compare against missiles or one instance against Cyborg Superman when Superman has outright beaten Darkseid on his own three different times?
      Superman has only beaten Darkseid when he is hit by his own omega beams which are far superior to anything Superman can dish out.



    Quote:
    Those are clean wins by Superman. If Darkseid can't prevent his own power from being used against him over and over and over again, that's an inherent weakness on Darkseid's part.


No, it's not an inherent weakness anymore than Galactus losing to Reed Richards several times by turning his own machines on himself.

I guess Galactus is beneath Reed Richards as well.

Fact is, you have nothing to counter omega beams turned against Darkseid and have to create rather amusing leaps of logic to justify your agenda here.

          Because that's what he thinks about Superman and Surfer and how he would write a fight between both.
        No, that's just a statement a writer made. It's not canon. It has not been actually depicted in a book and vetted by an editor. And you even agreed that "interviews are irrelevant," but here you are being a hypocrite.
      It's their opinion and it has far more weight than mine or yours because they actually write these characters. How am I being a hypocrite.



    Quote:
    Because you wrote, "interviews are irrelevant," and now you want to use interviews as evidence! That's being a hypocrite. You either accept it or you don't, but you can't have it both ways depending on whether the interview favors the character you favor or doesn't. It's just blatant, blatant hypocrisy from you here because if you go to the link above, that whole post is about you dismissing what Dan Jurgens says about Doomsday and Superman being equal and both being more powerful than Darkseid. And it ends with you calling interviews irrelevant. But here you are citing an interview.


I said interviews are irrelevant if there is any comic which contradicts it.

Here it contradicts nothing. Your entire logic is that interviews are fine as long as they suit you.

Once again, very amusing but entirely inconsequential as far as I'm concerned. You're dismissed.
