He can just turn off a GL ring and create kryptonite ? Got a scan for that?

Here are few examples of Silver Surfer's transmutation power at work.

  • Transmutes rock into a harmless gas.
  • Transmutes gold into sand.
  • Transmutes a napkin dispenser into a gold bar.
  • Restructures the molecules of the Obliterator's weapons to shoot harmless light.
  • Transmutes an enemy's weapon into its basic atoms.

    That last one proves the Silver Surfer can transmute that GL ring into lead or any number of different things. Then he can energy drain Superman in a similar way he drained the Hulk

    Tries to drain a Banner-less Hulk of gamma radiation and nearly kills Hulk in the process.
  • Easily stops the Hulk's strike and absorbs Hulk's gamma radiation, causing Hulk to revert back into Bruce Banner

    Superman is powered by the sun, Surfer can use that to drain him and give himself an additional boost in power.

    Absorbs the Sun's energy to greatly increase his power.

    Then there's the fact that Silver Surfer sensed Gladiator's weakness to a certain frequency of radiation and claims he could fell Gladiator easily if he chose to exploit it. He can do the same to Superman by sensing his vulnerability to Kryptonite, recreating it with his transmutation power and easily beat Superman in a fight.

    Sense's Gladiator's weakness and lets him know he can take him down with ease if he exploits it.

    Can Superman win against the Surfer? Of course. But not the majority of the time.

  • It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
