Okay, I'm starting to think that maybe Superman would have Goku in terms of physical strength but wouldn't Goku's wider range of abilities; instant transmission, super saiyan 1 through 4, and all of his energy attacks, give Goku the advantage over Superman?

Probably my most hated Vs question ever, usually found in Youtube comments under a Superman AMV.

Anyway I don't care what this Goku person can do... Superman Prime would eat him for breakfast.

I am going to say Superman would win because Goku isn't made of Kryptonite....

My knowledge isn't extensive... As you may be able to tell... Lol.

There's one user on this site that made a blog about Goku's strength level. I read it and he added up all of Goku's strength feats.

@Rasarima: Don't worry, it's not meant to be one of those forums where one is completely favored over the other. I was just curious after learning what the comic book version of Superman is capable of.

Word of advice, never bring manga-comic battles up on CV, you will get raped. Brutally.

Goku's strength is nothing compared to Superman's.

Goku at SSJ4 wouldn't be even considered close to Superman's strength class.

Completely different universes and their power usually lies simply in energy attacks and combat speed.

Okay. This wasn't what I was looking for. I was looking for logical facts as to why Goku or Superman could beat the other, not people's personal opinions on who would win.

In my opinion, they're evenly matched and it depends on how one uses his abilities against the other.

Eh...I always thoght they where about the same. Just that Supes has the edge of physical strength, but Goku does have martial arts on his side...

@baron2011: OP ask how physical strong are they, and I gaved him scans.

What exactly did he lift in the fight with piccolo, I watch the series but my memory of the show is faint

It never says Other World has higher gravity than Earth, just King Kai's planet, Planet Vegeta and the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.

Plus, this topic should be locked and I'm on my phone and can't do it.

Superman is vastly more physically stronger than Goku. The only thing Goku has over him is destructive capability.
