@cadencev2: I saw every scan and read the comics, and while Ghost Rider is powerful he doesn`t quite match Dante in overall power/stats. I could post feats for Dante just as much but I want to keep this debate simple until an elaboration is needed. Ghost Rider has no answer for Bangle of Time, Quicksilver or Chrono Heart which Dante can access in an instant. Penance Stare requires the victim to be a sinner which I don`t even know if Dante qualifies or should be categorized in that bracket also the point that I was making was his soul has defensive mechanisms against inflictions that attack the soul directly and also I don`t see Ghost being able to even tag Dante who is far faster by a large margin.
Dante has much more going for him and I didn`t underestimate Zarathos at all you on the other hand underestimated Dante, you clearly don`t know Dante`s character that side of Dante is long gone he became cold and no nonsense within DMC 2 also Dante only played around with Nero more so he didn`t play around with Mundus or Vergil much he sensed the threat within them.
I do not underestimate Dante, I put him where his feats and feats of his foes he battle exactly where they are. Below Zarathos.
You stated his enemies are near featless therefore making him near featless. Mundus has demonstrated his awesome might, so has Abigail and the Despair Embodied. Mephisto and Zarathos should be considered to be overrated due to the fact that many say that they cannot die or that they can bust galaxies which is far from true. You haven`t proven why or proven so, I have given valid points and constructed my arguments within those valid points. Also Mephisto NEVER stalemated Galactus that is a huge misconception. Galactus couldn`t get rid of him and I don`t think the Power Cosmic can banish a Hell Lord it takes supernatural elements to do so. Also Galactus wasn`t nourished by much and Mephisto was frightened at the idea of Galactus consuming his realm.
