This is a genuine question about something that's been bothering me for a while. A part of me, the part that's a big fan of DB, says that Goku is crazy powerful and awesome. Another part of me, the part that gets frustrated with the fanbase, says that Goku isn't as powerful as some folks make him out to be. The most rational part of me says it doesn't even matter.
Still, it's frustrating that the fanbase seems to be so obsessed over whether or not Goku can beat up other characters. Even the creators of DBS seem to have acknowledged this problem. In last weeks episode, Goku and Vegeta were pestering Beerus to tell them how powerful Lord Zeno was and Beerus replied something to the effect of "you Saiyans are too concerned with how powerful others are". I took this as a subtle jab at the fanbase.
What do other people think? Is Goku overrated, and if so, why? Where do you rate him and his recent opponents in terms of power? Are the people who bring DB into every debate about another character's feats just trolls or are they actual fans?
