      Energy drain is hardly a auto win against Superman due to his experience with energy drainers like Parasite and his own high resistance to such attacks.


        It has hardly come into play with high level energy manipulators like Green Lantern (Kyle has actually drained power cosmic itself from Parallax), Captain Atom etc.


          Surfer doesn't use energy drain that much either. He is not Quasar or Rogue.

    The closest Surfer has come to fighting a Superman analogue in Marvel is Gladiator, and Surfer's immediate response was the he could manipulate Gladiator's energies to beat him easily. That tells me Surfer could do the same to Superman. Surfer's energy manipulation is at a much higher level than Parasite's, Kyle's, Quasar's, and most versions of Captain Atom's.


Actually Surfer said he knew Gladiator had a radiation weakness and could use it to beat him. But in actual practice when he fought Krosakis with Gladiator's powers, he used only energy blasts.

Surfer has been shown inferior to Quasar twice in energy manipulation. Once against Dampyre who defeated Surfer by draining him and then Quasar overloaded him in the very next issue. Second time was against Ego in Maximum Security where Surfer nearly died trying to absorb Ego's energy but Quasar absorbed all of Ego's power.

Parasite, Kyle and Atom all have feats putting them ahead of Surfer in energy manipulation.

Cosmic Senses: The Silver Surfer has certain cosmic-energy enhanced perceptions which enable him to be aware of the patterns of energy anywhere in the galaxy. These abilities allow him far-ranging vision (in space he can see people clearly over a light year away), the ability to see sub-atomic particles, superhuman hearing, the ability to detect fields, traces, and concentrations of pure forms of energy and discern their natures.

Energy Absorption and Manipulation: The absorption of electromagnetic energy is the base of the Surfer's life and power. The Surfer has complete control of the four fundamental forces of the universe, reaching nearly any effect he desires. As a result, the Surfer can absorb, manipulate and discharge energy of the entire electromagnetic spectrum at incredible levels surpassing Nova with the Nova Force and Quasar, and with sufficient destructive force to destroy planets. The Surfer also possesses the ability to suppress or absorb the powers of other mutants/beings, making them temporarily or permanently unable to use them.

Matter Manipulation: The Silver Surfer can rearrange matter to create other objects of importance by rearranging molecules. He can also change the state of matter, such as changing solids into gas. Transmutation helps the Surfer escape traps and prisons, and can also be used to make an enemy's weapons inactive.

Superhuman Strength: The Surfer possesses enormous superhuman strength. Though the exact magnitude remains vague, he has often been shown to fight evenly with people who can lift far in excess of 100 tons. He can also use the Power Cosmic to increase his strength to incalculable levels.

◾Invulnerability: The Silver Surfer's silvery "skin" was designed to easily withstand the rigors of deep-space travel, and thus far, it has proven to be virtually indestructible. The Silver Surfer can withstand even the most extreme conditions, like the crushing pressures of a black hole, and has withstood plunges into stars.
