@cable_extreme: Boros would get curbstomped by either Superman or Hulk. I see what you are saying about Saitama not showing his upper limits yet, but here on the vine, we go by what they have already accomplished, not by speculation. We don’t really know how powerful Saitama is. He could be only planetary, but he could also be WAY above that. We don’t really know, which is why we go by what they have already shown. We can’t use NLFs.
He easily reflected a "at the very least" planetary attack using the concussive force of his hand moving through the air... You try making a punching bag move by waving your hand around in front of it... He not only reflected the attack, but there was enough force left over to split the jet stream around the world. The level of strength he has, and consistency is far better than the consistent showings of Wonder Woman who had a knack for constantly failing which resulted in superman to have Superman pick up the slack. She would have her showing every once in awhile but her durability on a consistent basis was crap.
consistency implies that Saitama has repeatedly showing planetary attacks. Which is not the case. He simply has one attack on that level and nothing else. You can argue consistency when Saitama only has one fight that puts him high tier and nothing else in that level. Sure you can say that he has yet to face an opponent like Boros but I still wouldn't say there is anything consistent about Saitama until he gets more showings. Which is also why the legitamacy of Boros's statement is very questionable because that entire statement is a complete outlier to rest of manga. If we took every databook seriously than manga characters would be a lot stronger than most give them credit for. However the fact reamins that it is still a statement that is unsupported by any other feats within the manga. Even showings since the Boros fight have are not on that level despite the villains supposedly being similar to Boros.
He has never struggled at all with any attack at any range. Wonder Woman on the other hand has struggled and been defeated by less-than solar system attacks/beings.
The statement isn't an outlier of the entire manga when the whole series was a ramp-up to that point. It is obvious of One's intentions with Boros, it wasn't his intention to make Boros appear stronger than he was. One stated that Boros disaster level was above Dragon level leaving only God level. This makes him a worldly threat to humanities survival. Boros is easily world level confirmed but the manga and especially the anime at the very least. Saitama is above world level as he didn't struggle at all against Boros.
Youa re missing my point. You argue that Saitama being planet level is consistent. however he has only one feat that planet level. Yes Wonder Woman has low showings but she also has ridiculously high ones as well which is why the topic of consistency comes up and we go by the middle ground. The middle ground for Saitama would not be planet level.(Note my point is not that Saitama isn't palnet level but rather brining up consistency when debating Saitama makes no sense.)
It is an outlier. There is no other feat in the entire series that comes anywhere near that statement. It is leagues above anything else shown after the fight as well. Why would you ramp up to a fight and not make the next set of villains even stronger. What ever one has stated doesn't change the fact that it is an outlier feat nor does it change that fact that it is still just a statement. One that is unsupported within the webcomic or manga. Boros has no feats of being world level. He simply has one statement and that's it. Even the collateral damage of that attack wasn't near world level.
One punch man's high showings are still Saitama not really giving his effort, that is the difference, even planetary attacks and such are boringly childish in comparison to Saitama's power. Wonder Woman's ridiculously high feats are shadowed by Superman almost completely., They all piggy back off of his importance in an effort to keep her relevant. Her own post crisis solo series aren't even close to the showings she has in his comics.
