Reply Subj: Here Is What Is Bad About Absolutes...

... 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.

... you go on and on about concepts, and how we have to look at the concept of the character... and I've counter-argued that the continuity of the character is just as important as the concept, if not moreso.  Well, in the case of Superboy Prime, the CONCEPT and the CONTINUITY of the character both point to one thing, he's just not stopped that easy.
You like to point out all the stuff that Surfer can do.  Well, the GLs are an army of guys that can do the exact same thing... Surfer is more powerful than most of them, if not all, as they are limited by their will (which is why some are more powerful and capable than others), but there is the rare exception like Hal.  But even if Surfer is more powerful than every single one of them, there is no way, absolutely NO WAY, that he would tear through them like Prime did.  Let alone taking on both Corps, all of Earth's heros, AND the Gaurdians (more powerful than any of Galactus's heralds.)
And your point on absolutes... every time you are involved in a post with Surfer as a topic, you present him and his power as an absolute, and just look the other way when Surfer has been shown to lose.  Or you go on about what he CAN do, instead of how he actually operates in a comic.  Yet, the GLs, who have the very same potential as Surfer, fail to stop a character that has been specifically utilized to BE unstoppable (resisting universe destroying blasts, seemingly unkillable, seemingly unbeatable), and you just insult DCs writing.
*GASP* it's possible for a DC character to be as powerful and capable as a Marvel character, even more powerful in some cases.
