@king_stranglehold_da_first: No one wants to fight Russia. Too big, too cold and their military is quite tough, but it certainly doesn't make them a superpower. A battle on Russian turf only gives Russians a home field advantage, but on neutral grounds?

Very challengeable by the other mid tier powers.

Indeed.

@superguy1591:

In terms of Russia defending its country then maybe.

@rubear

Lets not make this thread even more political with the Obama statements.

@bigcimmerian

IMO Russia is a regional power based off the definition:

  1. In international relations, a regional power is a state that has power within a geographic region. States which wield unrivaled power and influence within a region of the world possess regional hegemony.

Israel and Turkey are not regional powers because Iran and can take either of them on imo. For Russia to be a superpower like the USA it would have to have military bases around the world; along with being able to invade any countries, no matter how far they are. Whether they win or lose, the USA has the capability as a superpower to invade Russa. Russia on the other hand can't invade the USA(doesn't mean USA would automatically win in a war against Russia). That's one of the perks in being a SP. Again this is just my opinion. I could most likely be wrong.

@superguy1591: What makes you think that Russia isn't the superpower Putin and everyone in the wolrd says they are? I mean they have displayed it more than once through the years and they can prove it again to the wolrd. I don't think that either the USA or China are even close enough to the fire power Putin has but I am open to see your argument.

Nobody in the world says Russia is a superpower. Its a best a regional power.

From what I read Russia is the second strongest country in terms of military might. I'm going with Russia. Not only that I don't even think the UK has the manpower to conquer Russia. As far as round 2 Russia has enough(more than enough) to devastate the UK, which is just an island.

Haven't kept up on New 52 DC in a while. Is there any new Darkseid feats that I should know of?

Could go either way imo. Especially if Supergirl is fighting seriously.

Nobody is "clearly" above Surfer and clearly below Odin except Thanos

But some honorable mentions are

Doc Strange

Sentry

Warlock

Quasar

Starbrand

Captain Universe

Runner

Good list. But you forgot about the guy in your avi "Tyrant" who is definitely above Surfer but below Odin. At least Depowered Tyrant.
