      Are these the categories mainly used by the board for ‘power levels’?


    Here is how I'd place some characters (all are in their classic, normal modes):

    Street: Conan the Barbarian, Lady Shiva, Punisher, Joker, Misty Knight, BATMAN
    Meta: Deathstroke, Hawkman, Vixen, Captain America, Elongated Man
    Enhanced meta: She-Hulk, Starfire, Spider-Man, Venom, Drax the Destroyer (current)
    Prime meta: Dr. Doom, most Green Lanterns, Super-Skrull, Emma Frost, Red Tornado, Captain Marvel, RONAN THE ACCUSER
    Elite meta (herald): Superman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Power Girl, Sersi, Exodus (and of course all of Galactus' heralds), GREEN LANTERN: SODAM YAT
    Teambuster: SUPERBOY PRIME, Thanos, Darkseid, Mordru, Amazo, Hela
    Sky-father: CHTON, Odin, Yuga Khan, Trigon, The Stranger
    Abstract: Living Tribunal, Phoenix Force, Michael Demiurgos, Eternity, The Source

Zvelf has been quite diplomatic here. Darkseid can be seen anywhere between herald and skyfather depending on where he is seen. At one moment he is mind controlling billions of daxamites, other times, it's not clear if he is scared of Martian Manhunter. The argument is that a lot of times, he appears he is an avatar of himself. I've put in caps, who I think are the highest end characters in their categories.

I'm glad to see Zvelf has put Power Girl as herald here. I would disagree with the GL's being shown as PM, but then someone like G'nort is either PM or EM, Kilowog, John etc are herald IMHO.

You also get the troublesome one's, Daredevil has powers but he is a street, Punisher, Elektra, Kingpin, Batman are decent fights for him. Is Angel a meta? He can fly, but no one would take him in a tournament and someone like Hawkeye could take him. I think Cyclops is an EM, most people think he's a meta.

I also feel we need 2 more categories, one above skyfather to show Elder Gods (Chton, Gaea, Oshtur, Set) and the Celestials (they are classically higher than Galactus and at the least, don't have his weaknesses). However, they will be many people here who disagree.

The other category would be in abstract. There is a clear pecking order. Death and Eternity are over Lord Chaos, but should be in one category, possibly the Endless. Then there are the multiversal powers, such as Living Tribunal, Lucifer Morningstar and possibly and argument for the Infinity Gauntlet (although, strictly speaking it is not multiversal). Then you have the supreme powers, the Presence, the Source.
