Superman X, Can easily beat him! All he needs to is cover Superman in Kryptonite and he's done!

And @drunkvader Superman is much stronger than Hulk at a calm state. In the time it takes him to gain enough strength to compete, Superman would have already destroyed him.

Even if he does eventually gain enough strength to become stronger, realistically, he shouldn't be able to touch Superman (seeing how his speed rivals Flash)

Didn't Hulk almost get ripped apart by Gladiator's heat vision?

@drunkvader: Pretty much what Mumbles said. I'm only making a list of characters who could easily and indisputably beat Superman - whether Hulk can beat Superman is debatable at best.

@mumblesonetwo: There are lots of other alternate-reality Supermen (Superman One Million, Superman-Prime) who could knock him on his ass, but I'm excluding them simply because it's obvious Supermen that are more powerful could beat normal Superman. Also, I put Kryptonians in there to cover that as well.

@joygirl: Well, whether or not she can do it all the time is debatable - Clark canbeat her. I only add who can do it fairly easily.

@iheartzombies92: A good pile of the folks on your list couldn't do it easily. Some have a much smaller chance that Wonder Woman. Supergirl, for instance, or a baseline kryptonian, should lose to Superman 100% of the time. Gladiator would probably lose, Mongul has been beaten by him, Billy Batson usually loses to him, etc. etc. etc.

@joygirl: By "Kryptonians" I kinda meant characters like Superman X, Superboy Prime, etc. - basically alternate-earth Supermen. Plus, remember All-Star Superman? He got his tush kicked by a pair of Kryptonian scientists.

I don't know how to put it - not easily, but, like, in terms of pure stats and whatnot could take him. So, natch Mongul loses on occasion, he is a villain, he has to lose - I mean in theory. Dunno how to describe it :p

Most of those guys you listed are reality warpers.

Like who? Scarlet Witch doesn't need to change reality to kill Superman, nor does Dr. Strange. Who else?

@iheartzombies92: Dream is one of the Endless who are some of the most powerful characters out there.

On top of that Parallax is also a reality warper, Odin & Zeus are reality warpers, Galactus is reality warper, Franklin is a reality warper, Jean Grey (with the Phoenix force) is a reality warper, Rune King Thor is a reality warper, etc.

I could go on.

Yeah, they could do it, but they could also achieve it without. Like, Phoenix could simply rip Supes apart, same with Galactus, same with Franklin, RKT could disassemble him on a molecular level, etc.
