Subj: No, it is not biased, it simply looking at average power and strength output

Reply Subj: Re: This whole thing has gotten way out of hand. The rankings are not indicative of power levels. I think they were based mostly on popularity.

I am not really a Superman fan. I quit reading Superman when I was a little boy since he did not make sense to me, how powerful he was.


      In the same category (muscle), Superman is priced at $5, meanwhile a DC character who has been repeatedly said to be his near equal - Captain Marvel is priced only $1.
      That is wrong, yes. Captain Marvel has indeed always been portrayed as in the same ballpark as Superman. ... and he is from DC

      In a category that includes Green Lantern and the Flash, Spider-man is priced $5, when he is nowhere near the power levels of either Flash or Green Lantern. I give Spidey zero chance against GL in a fair fight (meaning things are not stacked heavily against GL). In another category, Cable is only $1, meanwhile Wolverine is $5...forgetting that Cable is capable of so much more firepower, future tech, telekenethic powers, leadership, smarts and versatility than Logan. And Punisher outranked Cable! No way!


        I think the ranking makes a lot of sense. Since Superman, Wolverine and Spider-man are all very popular, they will be selected almost automatically by their fans. So to make things interesting, the original poster put them on the highest price point to make selecting them expensive and he is no doubt testing how each of us would sacrifice some of our favorites to pick out the best team given the budget constraint of $15. It's really just that. Just because Superman was priced $5, it does not mean he is almost twice more powerful than Thor who is priced at $3. If that were the case, then Superman would be 5 times more powerful than Captain Marvel, which is of course insane.

    Also, when Superman defeat the likes of Galactus, Ego with one strike, Glory, Surtur, etc. just let me know.

    in terms of power output, I indeed think that Superman could beat Galactus if Galactus is not aware of Superman's powers.

    Ego is a planet. Do you really think that Superman cannot destroy a planet if he wants to?

    Anyone here saying that Superman is more powerful than Thor or some of the characters like the Surfer- when he doers not control ANYTHING beyond the physical is just being extremely blatantly bias;
    no, his average power and strength is far higher than those two. .... although Silver Surfer is a very bad matchup for Supes

    seduced by his EXTREME popularity; or being a hardcore fanboy. The ONLY being that would anyone trouble- that controls only his physical and mental abilities in a devastating way (and not beyond) is the Martian Man Hunter, period!!! Superman concerns DC in a big Financial fashion and they will never let him loose in a crossover, as well as they should. However, Marvel does not feel the same with the likes of Thor- who they deliberately want to get rid off time and again.
