1- while beating 200 GL is impressive non of then tried to drain Emo boy, a feat Surfer can easily do for a win
2- SBP is clearly stronger but that doesn't help him beat an intangible a Surfer who can phase his brains out
3- SBP has no TP defensive feats, in fact iirc MMH was able to read his mind planets away, guess who has comparable TP powers ( Norrin) mind rape ftw
4- can SBP teleport if Surfer or Thanos bfrs him to another dimension
5 - does SBP have any transmutation resistance feats at planetary level
Superboy is a powerhouse but thinking if he goes against Surfer it's going to be a brawl every time is wrong, he loses in every other fight.
A great example is Wally vs Superman, we know who is stronger but so what? Strength doesn't win against versatility. Surfer stomps Emo boy
