Superman overrated on ComicVine

#1 Posted by TheManInTheSuit (6 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been looking at the powers section of the website and I have noticed that superman is number 1 in most categories that are ludicrous for example agility superman can't dodge darkseids omega beams with his super speed while batman could so surely batman should be before him. Even worse is the intellect category look I'm not saying superman is dumb or anything but yet again people like batman and lex Luther are much smarter! Finally to top it off superman is apparently the fastest too when the flash run so fast in kingdom come arc that he blurred the lines of reality! Now is this all down to fanboyism?

Ignore power sections. People add all types of powers everyday.

You know you're supposed to ignore the powers section just by looking at the top character...He-Man...
Hopefully it will be deleted in April 15th.

Yep. In any case, he is underrated.

With the powers people usually just vote across the board in all categories.  I blame the X-Men fanboys that want to make every X-Man in the top 5 and throw the actual ranking off because of it.

@TheManInTheSuit: You seem to have come to this site with only  knowledge of Superman that comes from JLU (the cartoon) as evident by you saying that Batman can out run the omega effect and Superman cannot. This is wrong even in the show because in the episode where Darkseid and Superman fight ("twilight of the gods" i think it was) Superman avoided the omega effect  while being much closer than Batman.  
 
Now you must understand that the comics have so very little to do with the (now over) cartoon. Why should anything from it count? 
 
Also one could argue on behalf of Superman's intellect if one where so inclined. I however don't really feel like it at the moment but just know yes he is very very very smart.

If anything, Superman has been underrated. Superman has been victimized by years of PIS (and some CIS).

According to the powers section, Powergirl is the third smartest person in the DCU.

Ignore it.

Pre-flashpoint PG - this is true... From a certain point-of-view. People seem to go dumb around her.

OP is a Batman fan boy, how the hell can he actually believe Batman is faster than Superman?

#23 Posted by Skyfire (725 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman is far more intelligent than Batman. Bruce is a better tactician though.

I've seen him both overrated and underrated here.

He-Man is the MASTER of the universe! Of course he'd be number 1!

You don't get to be the most powerful man in the universe from being number 2

Honestly Superman is underrated here by people who don't fully understand the extent or scale of his powers.

He is well known and we have a gigantic list of characters many that need more atention or development. current superman constantly gets under rated because constantly think silver age superman because when we thinking of overkill strength we think silverage superman that or internet meme character, or a cartoon character which silver age superman was both and that was before internet.
