    In the Marvel/DC Crossover 6 – Superman and Silver Surfer were in the same story. Almost all of the time, in crossovers, the heroes fight each other first and then realize that they are on the same side and ultimately team up.
    However, in this crossover they do not fight each other first.
    Why do you think that is?
    It’s simple; DC would not allow ANY Marvel character to get the best of their most popular hero. The writers and editors at DC, knowing that Superman basically has almost no chance against the Surfer, stipulated that the only way for them to be in the same story is for them not to fight each other at all.
    If there was any logical way for Superman to win, DC would've made sure that they fought just to have Superman beat another one of Marvel's top heroes.

If DC did not want Superman to lose to Surfer, they would just have Superman beat Surfer. The writer didn't write any fight between both.

Do you have any source citing that the editors and writers thought so? Because Superman's main writer Dan Jurgens said Superman would beat Surfer 99 times out of 100 times.

And guess what, Cyborg Superman and Silver Surfer fought under Ron Marz who was writing Surfer's book and if anything Surfer came up short in the fight.
