Subj: No way are the Lanterns the equal of Surfer. Surfer is well above any one Lantern.

Quote: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 bothÂ cruise spaceways.
Take the Parasite, merge it with Firestorm, Dr Fate,Â plus oneÂ 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.
