        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....

... When two absolute meet, which absolute triumph?
It is said in the last post's scan that the ring can do anything. Anything. Yet, what did these numerous fellows did around SBP with their absolute power? If they failed, can their powers really be qualified as absolute?
The GLs, like much, much people in DC, don't live up to their hype. When reading a DC story about these, a child's soul is required.
