@ghostrider2: Are you kidding me? You probably haven't even read any GL comics when you think that Hal at best has planetary level blasts. His blasts has taken out Amazo (who's durability far exceeds that of Surfer's), Cyborg Superman (who is also more durable than Surfer), and Krona who is an abstract. His constructs have been able to shatter the Spectre's face.
@kingant27: Except for speed, energy blasts, durability, powerwise, and being versatile.
To be honest, Hal is the most underrated character here on the vine, with the exception of Hulk. He has better damage output than what Norrin does, and he is more powerful.
Hal could just blast him into oblivion, like he did to Amazo, Cyborg Superman, and Krona. Hal wins over Surfer, but CV's Surfer is invincible, and people are going to vote for Surfer regardless of what you show them.
Also, if you want more info about Hal's feats, ask @dondave. He can explain it better to you.
I doubt you have read SS.
SS eats planetary blasts for breakfast.His energy damage is above planetary level.
He destroyed planet with his matter manipulation.
You see it's a very bad idea to go against Norrin with blasts.
