          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.



        ... Just won't work. The Lanterns, in the end, are glorified telekynesists, whereas the Surfer has the Power Cosmic. The Lanterns have regular forms, while the Surfer's is superpowered at his base. Maybe they match him in power magnitude, but certainly not in scope. The only thing they have in common is that both cruise spaceways.

        Take the Parasite, merge it with Firestorm, Dr Fate, plus one of DC's countless flying bricks (they're all more or less the same), and that construct would be closer to what the Surfer would be in DC- but still inferior, IMHO.

      Gotta disagree with the GL assessment.  Their power scope is unlimited as well.  When Hal Jordan entered the central power battery and stole its power, he had the magnitude to do what is within a GL's scope.  Before, he was only able to remake Coast City.  After becoming Parallax, he remade the universe.  This means he also created all the natural laws, matter, and forces within.

     
    More things a GL ring can do....


... This machisimo attitude to artificially show up their protégés way beyond their conceptual potential, or beyond rationality itself. It reeks of lack of confidence.
 
If the Flash was portaited as he is sometimes shown, he would clear Earth of all criminality twice a day. The Universe, if Superman is considered instead. If the Lantern's rings really were about anything the ring bearers imagine, I would say the legion of them that took on SBP were some dull asses indeed.
 
And yet, when you look at their sources, they are as humble as a ring anybody can use, a displaced alien, and a guy doused in chemicals.
 
I thought DC was decided to make sense after COIE, but for some times now... anyway. I can't really say that Marvel's any better, neither.
