    ... 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.

Well, I think Surfer's record isn't that much better than a GL's.  He gets dismissed by Thanos like it's school in the summer time.  But Surfer isn't the only one whose qualifications don't match his showings.  It can be said for just about any character, but Surfer seems to get special treatment because of his coolness factor.  Same with Galactus.  Flash gets tagged all the time, this should not be possible - ever.  Superman struggles with slow, muscle-beefed villains like Mongul and gets tagged by human-level speed.  Batman kicks Darkseid's jaw and makes it friggin' bleed because Batman is cool.  As far as I'm concerned, all characters suffer from being poorly written.  But when the universe has millions of characters with the potential to save or destroy it, characters will have to job.  Bottom line is that Surfer's cool.  But he's nothing more special than any other top tier hero who suffers from the same poor writing.
