    Isn't he just Top Herald, right there with Sentry as originally configured, and not Skyfather, much less Cubes, Celestials, Imps?

The Surfer has an unrivalled power scope. In terms of power magnitude, he is merely average to high. This the exact opposite of SBP, or the Sentry, who are basically one-string instruments ("projectiles"), but with ridiculous magnitude.

He does have his limits. They are exposed when opposing other Cosmic, or otherwise Immortal powersets, which in many instances he proved less capable of manipulating, and thus was forced tu use classical (but still relatively potent) attacks like Cosmic blasts.
He is of the Cosmic domain, but does not rules it, like a Galactus, or Celestials. A true Cosmic Herald in every meaning of the word, the Surfer however is not the top one, powerwise. Other Galactus Heralds may be reasoneably more powerful, in magnitude. Maybe the Surfer is more experienced, or imaginative, thought.

    Unless SS Unload early on... Still see likes of Thor/Supes giving him hard fights...

Thor gives him more than a hard fight; his hammer negates or deflect about any special effect the Surfer throws at him. The fight then proceeds in a classical manner, where Thor realistically gains the upper hand due to sheer skill. This is not me; it is printed continuity.

Superman, however, is going down - relatively fast, unless a plot device is introduced. Builts like his are a previsible legion in any universe (often without the glaring weaknesses), while the Surfer's power base is unparalleled in DCU.
