              SS seems to be getting a "whole lot of love" on the Battle Board recently...

              Able to fight prime evenly, ditto Dr manhattan...
              "Casually" takes out Superman....

              Why is he SO far up on the Board...

              Fought Tyrant, NO effect, Ditto Odin, don't think EVER managed to defeat Thor either...

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

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


            Yeah, I know.... People always say how Surfer is versatile this, versatile that... Green Lanterns are just as versatile but don't get any love. Surfer's cool, but I doubt he's any more special than Hal Jordan. And Hal aint takin' Prime or Thanos down.

          ... whole other level.

          I'll consider a Green Lantern "special" the next time I see one create a black hole as a mere byproduct of their energy discharge during a fight.

        That's an awesome feat, but to classify it as a by-product of a fight? He purposely created it as a means of escape.

      its still a pretty significant feat, and one i don't see Hal equalling (even remotely).

    Yeah, but this is not your every day Surfer. Not quite sure how big that black hole was, but it looked like it engulfed the planet? This is only well written if you're a Surfer fanboy. Otherwise, it's plain silly. To compare, though, Hal has frozen time across an entire solar system. Jon Stewart recreated one. Don't know how you'd stack these feats against what Surfer did, but they're uber as well!

Going by your Hal Jordan scan, I'm not sure its correct to say that Hal actually "froze time" in that scene. It actually looks as if he simply froze the individuals fighting as well as everyone within a thousand miles of the planet. Sort of like putting them in stasis or suspended animation I suppose. Still an impressive feat but a far cry from actually freezing time across a solar system.

Secondly, John Stewart did "temporarily" create constructs mimicking a solar system but it wasn't actually the real thing. Furthermore, creating constructs of that magnitude was too much for his ring and thus he couldn't hold it for long.

Both of the above are significant "high end" Green Lantern feats to be sure but IMO they still fall well short of what Surfer did in his fight with Ravenous per the scans above.
