The comics (after 1986) prove that he is still the strongest hero! Also if you've seen the Death Battle, then you know what I'm talking about

Superman is widely acknowledged as the strongest hero; however, the term hero, since my opponent has not provided any definitions, would be defined as hero characters from the DC and Marvel universe. Therefore, my opponent's statement that superman is the strongest hero does not have any relation to Goku, but simply mean that he is the strongest within his universe. With the definitions set, the criteria that must be looked to in order to determine who will win in a fight will have to be in terms of strengths and weaknesses.
-contention 1: Goku's strength surpasses Superman's.
From various cartoons, comic books, and movies, superman has been shown to struggle with forces such as airplanes, comets, and blasts from energy cannons. Goku's strength at Super Saiyan 1 is enough to destroy an entire planet, as proven by goku's superiority to Freeza who was capable of blowing up a planet. Goku's strength also increased exponentially as he discovered higher super saiyan levels to the point where he could destroy an entire galaxy, as proven by his defeating Brolly, who was destroyed a galaxy. His power at super saiyan 4 was capable of destroying a dimention, and super saiyan 3, shown by ss3 gotenks, ripped a hole into another dimention. Any of the feats described above are exponentially larger and more powerful than the max velocity of a falling airplane, the force of a comet, and a blast from a energy cannon, and would easily eradicate superman by wiping out every single cell to the point of nonexistence, as shown by goku's defeat of kid boo, who could regenerate from the smallest remaining part of his body.
-Contention 2: superman's weakness is too great and would be easily exploited.
depending on where a fight between superman and goku occurs, superman could be easily defeated by a small amount of kriptonite, which has been shown to, for the most part, incapatate superman. a fight on earth between the two would cover a wide area and possibly all of earth, and it's possible that any area they cover could contain kriptonite fragments.
-Contention 3: goku's faster than superman
while superman is capable of flying at the speed of light, it takes a while for him to reach his top speed, whereas people in the dbz universe could instantly reach their maximum speed, and a table for an estimate of goku's speed based on power stages is as followed:
Goku normal 5000 30x faster then sound (proven from his time flying from king kai's planet to earth)
Goku SS1 799 000 x faster then sound (proportional to his power level increase)
Gohan SS2 around 20 x Faster then light (proportional to his power level increase)
Goku SS3 around 2 000x faster then light (proportional to his power level increase)
these speeds only go up to ss3, goku's goes up to ss4 and possibly ss5 in continuations of the dbz universe. it's clear from these statistics that superman, whose max is the speed of light, has no hope in a competition of speed with goku.

In conclusion, superman's inferiority in strength and speed in addition to his easily exploitable weakness proves that in a fight, Goku will inevitably come out on top. thus i negate the contetion: Can superman truly defeat Goku. Good luck to my opponent in his rebuttal.
