What Culture "10 most powerful superheroes"

#1 Posted by Bezza (3943 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman down in 8th, ahead of Hulk and Flash but behind Thor (4th) and Martian Manhunter (3rd) with Silver Surfer (1st). I posted on their that I think Superman is too low...the writer however believes Superman's well documented weaknesses mean he can't poll higher! what do you reckon?!

Pre-52 everyone had a kryptonite shard with them,red sun radiation made him automatically human.
I still believe it is unfair but Superman is the only being that has multiple weaknessess for the writers to be lazy.

Prefer Superman to be somewhere in first five.

Superman has unlimited power potential,it doesn't matter if he uses it or not,the others can't say that.

Weaknesses

WW-none until she takes off her bracers,then she starts to lose control of herself

Shazam- his power is only as powerful as his spell is,so he can't overdue it,or screw it up

MM-fire and concentration(for density,shapeshifting,and TP)

Flash- his augcog makes him hesitate

Superman has a million more,but I wanted to point out others weaknesses,and all of them have those weaknesses when they "try" to be in supermans league of power.

@sandman_:

Eh, I guess. Thor has beaten extremely fast people before, so Supes speed isn't that big of an advantage.

So the list was:

  1. Silver Surfer
  2. Dr. Manhattan
  3. Martian Manhunter
  4. Thor
  5. Nova (Rider)
  6. Dr. Strange
  7. Jean Grey (sans Phoenix; it was listed as an ability as a sort of afterthought)
  8. Superman
  9. The Flash
  10. Hulk

Morals and the like were listed as weaknesses. I didn't agree with most of the list. Especially Jean Grey. Basically the writer says that Jean is incredibly powerful ("the most powerful member of the X-men team and female in all the Universe") on her own, and then the Phoenix gives her a boost on top of that. But Silver Surfer is still ahead of that? What? And the rest too.

For me

1.Dr. Manahattan(or Silver Surfer)

2.Silver surfer(or Dr. Manahattan)

3.captain Atom (if we follow logic) because captain Atom <= Dr. Manahattan

4.Thor/ Superman sharing this place

5.Hulk (because of his rage)

6.Martian Manhunter

7. black Bolt

8.Doc strange

9.Nova Prime(Rider)

10.The Flash

I like your list better!! - but Superman has only recently bashed Captain Atom in "injustice", so should he move up a place? Does this mean Superman wouldn't be wiped by Dr M?!

Thor can do more with Mjolnir in his hand but in a straight battle, Superman has the more combat applicable powers that would grant him a win.

Normally Superman was not suppose to bashed captain Atom in "Injustice" that is why i said "3.captain Atom (if we follow logic) because captain Atom <= Dr. Manahattan" but writers do what they want If we follow the feats of Captain Atom in his New 52 series he showed how powerful he could be even be able to create sentient being how can superman can be able to beat a guy who has warping power such as him. The problem is Dc has a policy nobody must beat Superman no matter how powerful the guy is. When captain Atom was Monarch Supeman was like a baby to him that was the true level of the cap but writers and DC cannot accept somebody to be more powerful than their icon number one even if it defy logic.
