Poll Is Silver Surfer (FOX) overrated or is he still one of the top dogs in CBM's (47 votes)

He's not overrated and his feats show it 81%
He definitely overrated 19%

Why do people say FOX Silver Surfer is overrated or almost "featless"? (Also did Silver Surfer punch holes in the earth or did he use something else to do it?)

He created a shockwave that was ten times the size of earth when he destroyed himself and Galactus.

Pretty sure he oneshotted Dr. Doom who withstood Human Torch’s supernova in the first film.

He also showed plenty of hax.

He’s not overrated at all, dude’s power was goofy.

Galactus was straight up large planetary level and Surfer defeated him and survived the explosion.

Matter manipulation to the point where the holes he made could be seen from space.

He was built different. Still demolishes most current CBM characters after just one appearance.

Didn't need 40 tie-in comics, 400 directors statements and 13 guidebooks to do it.

People that say Surfer is featless either don’t know the meaning of the word. This could either mean they are using it wrong or just don’t know what they are talking about, which is different believe it or not.

The first means they actually mean Surfer does not scale to “so-and-so”, which is completely different from being featless.

The other means they simply either have not seen the movie or are just in plain denial about how good the feats Surfer performed were.

Either way, they are wrong.

That shiny jobber couldn't even demolish me even when the likes of y'all forced me to stop using that stuff

OT: He's good but his debaters aren't, Surfer stans in general can be described as inexperienced novices, just like how Surfer is with the Power Cosmic, and they can become real blowhards over the Post-Annihilation thing.

@the_hajduk: Nah man the name of Surfer alone gives him that.

Surfer wank is actually the most comical comedy the vine has ever produced. Anyone who remembers the Iron God debacle would definitely agree with this. Surfer basically stomped Iron God so hard in the vs thread, mods locked it due to a mismatch against Tony Stark. Funnily enough in the following issue, Tony melted Norrin into a silver puddle.

@rajjarsalt: he didn't

I am sure from the many minutes I spent watching the clock during the film, Doom not only took a blast from Surfer but also managed to keep Surfer's board away from him

Imagine if someone like Tony Stark found a way to rig Mjolnir to defy and even disempower Thor that's how silly Surfer done goofed

Intangibility is great until you fall through your own board and eat dirt

Overrated, but his Galactus feat is wanked like crazy. Yes it's a powerful/impressive feat, but not combat-applicable at all considering it took him like 30+ seconds to channel the energy.

30 seconds to charge a planet sized blast is beyond the characters the majority place surfer above. So not overrated. He could solo practically all high tier movies superheroes with a fraction of the output

Sorry @krisbishop! I meant to tag the first person who said it, not this rando who thinks it's okay to harass me on one site and play victim on another! Though that bottom statement is certainly referring to me freely distributing to the denizens of this website, because without me, none of those categories would have reached those numbers!

Well, I'm not sure, but would you agree this round robin functions by Thor hammering Surfer, Surfer draining the Hulk, and then Hulk strong arming Thor?

@rajjarsalt: Precisely.

Well, have you read the revelations in Banner of War? I feel that might change things.

I'll strongly agree with you on Surfer, though. Surfer debaters try to use Post-Annihilation to clear getting hammered by BRB in Blood and Thunder, almost getting his skull crushed by Warrior's Madness Thor, and failing to beat Thor even with Loki's powers added to his own in his own comic, but he also got his skull dented by Thor's headbutt in JMS's Thor run.

Why would he need nuance if he is a literal man who wears no clothes all the time? It’s not the words on the picture they’re paying attention to.

It took him 19 seconds. Don't know where you are getting 30+ seconds from. He channelled energy from his board and scattered Galactus across the Galaxy. And you think it's not combat-applicable? Lmao

Because if that goofy cloud could pass an IQ test on any of the planets it consumed, it would have fought back, feasting on Surfer as if he was but a snack! I am beginning to suspect its surfboard sailing servant shares a troubling trait with the giant gassy gut, in that they are not very smart. No wonder a couple nerds took him down!

He never ate Saturn, but casted a shadow.

Why would he need Surfer to prepare 8-9 huge holes in the ground week before he arrives just to eat organic and heat energy from it.

Wasn't that entire plot of this shit movie ? Or this movie was that shit it destroyed whole sense of this story. Plot was that Norrin prepares planet for his master to eat it for food
