Doesn't count. It's the item, not the actualy superpower there.

I think a well trained green lantern could give the Silver Surfer a run for his money.

Also, the DC rip-off the silver surfer, waverider:

Both could do the job.

Molecule Man seems to be at or near the 'power' of Sentry and The Tribunal, so i'm sorry....I don't think he would fit within the parameters here.

Dude...he can warp reality on a cosmic scale.

So, I don't think so.

Try to choose someone a little less Omega levelish.....remember no one with 'cosmic' type powers.

Now that's a good choice!

Tell us why he's the 'ultimate'.....in your own opinion of course....don't have to be all 'sciency' about it unless you want to.

So far you're head and shoulders above the rest.



The Hulk is unstoppable the more anger he has the stronger he gets. The harder he is hit the stronger he gets from his rage.

I'm on team Hulk. He can punch the surfer right off his board! I know it's not possible but Hulk would find a way as he is awesome.

A superhero that can definitively beat both Silver Surfer and the Hulk?

If Dr Manhattan is ruled out then that leaves me with only one choice.

Apocalypse.

The Silver Surfer, as well as Galactus' other heralds, possess the ability to manipulate cosmic energy of a considerably more limited scale.

Bestowed on them by Galactus during their service to him, their abilities and assigned elements of influence vary, but the power can usually be expelled violently as concussive force, and in some cases, used with precision as a means to restructure molecules according to the user's mental design. However, although heralds have not been shown as dependent on Galactus as a further power source, and unlike him gain sufficient sustenance from starlight and cosmic radiation,


SS has great power yes, and that's why if someone goes up against him, i'll allow for some leeway in a fight against him.

Who says Apocalypse is a villain? Anti-hero, sure.

The Surfer is certainly no hero. Generally, is the Hulk?

Apocalypse is verily a vile villainous villain.

It's like saying Dick Cheney's 'all heart'. ;)

Where are you getting this from?

The Silver Sufer is definitely a good guy and Apocalypse is definitely a bad guy. Apocalypse in no way has ever acted as an anti-hero.

On the topic of anti-heros though, I would say Thanos is a good example. He's not really motivated by evil so much as he is motivated by serving lady death. It's very arguable that death is a natural part of life. Thanos has also cooperated and worked with the side of good on several occasions.

He definitely has the potential to bring down the Silver Surfer as well.

Ok, ok, I won't try and defend Apocalypse as an anti-hero but I do see him in the same vein as Magneto ie. somewhat tragic figures.

Surfer, though I haven't read much in 10 years, was a very self interested person that lacked attachment and therefore never has the altruism of most superheroes. The Hulk, the normal one, never had an ounce of heroism about him. He was always just a force of nature.

What about Spawn? He's virtually unbeatable based on his nature of existence.

Silver Surfer vs Incredible Hulk

Hulk isn't able to go into hyper space and black holes... sure the hulk is fast but he isn't as faster than the speed of light. Silver Surfer would be able to destroy the hulk before he even saw it coming. Also with the power cosmic the silver surfer could be far more superior in strength than the hulk.


I don't think so Tim

Withstanding from the Silver Surfer,Silver Surfer vol. 2, #125 Thor,The Incredible Hulk vol. 2, #440 (April 1996) a vastly powered-up giant Thanos,X-Man/Incredible Hulk '98 Annual the High Evolutionary,Incredible Hulk vol.2, #266 and Galactus.Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars #9

The Hulk was also able to withstand the force equivalent to thousands of nuclear weapons, planet-devastating impacts at point blank, and a powerful blast from Galactus.
If Galactus can't stop him, his minion the surfer sure couldn't

Beating the Silver Surfer unconscious with 3 blows.Incredible Hulk vol.3, #95
http://superherouniv...ki/Hulk_Powers/


Galactus is a slow piece of crap. SS is still faster. Along with speed he has the ability "telepathic ability, including mind-reading on occasion, and has proven to be able to influence human emotion and sensation." - Annihilation: The Nova Corps Files #1 (Oct. 2006) and since Hulk's anger makes him stronger, he could just influence Hulk to a calmer state, and than swoop down for the attack.

Than there is his ability to "utilize the Power Cosmic to augment his superhuman strength to indeterminate levels." - Fantastic Four #55 (Oct. 1966) could easily make himself stronger than what Hulk presently is/make himself stronger than millions of nuclear weapons.

When the hulk defeated SS he was weakened. But.....

Remember as well that SS could easily absorb all the gamma radiation of the hulk!
