Flat out, Ghost Rider has far more impressive feats, and has fought people with far more powerful showings than Dr. Manhattan.
I love reading how people are talking about Manhattan dumping cities on GR, or Manhattan doing this or that...read the linked thread. Manhattan really has not been shown to do much. Argue the facts, not the "ands", "ifs", or "buts".
So what if someone said Manhattan was a god (I don't remember if this was really said in the books or not, but someone else stated it elsewhere, so my point here will stand)? Heck, people used to call Emperors and Kings gods...did that make it so?
