This is obvious! But there are those who disagree! I will let them take the first shot...

I've been jonesing for a debate and GeneralPlatypus was kind enough to provide. Enjoy, everyone!

My position is that the Superman would defeat Kirby in battle. Since my opponent has not provided any information beyond the resolution, I'll lay the framework:

- The characters being discussed are the standard interpretations of each [1][2]. Special or enhanced versions of either do not apply.
- The intent of each character is to defeat the other in combat. A character will be considered defeated if they are killed, permanently immobilized, or otherwise incapacitated.
- The battle consists solely of Superman and Kirby. Outside participants, equipment, forces, etc. do not apply.
- The battleground is neutral to each character's abilities and weaknesses (e.g. not atop a kryptonite mountain, in outer space, etc).

I'll keep my opening arguments short and sweet.

1. Superman's abilities are far superior to those of Kirby [1][2]. Superman, who possesses super speed, strength, invulnerability, flight, ice breath, and heat/telescopic/x-ray vision, can defeat opponents from any distances at any speed. Kirby, who can swallow enemies, copy abilities, and fly for short periods of time, requires proximity and time to use his powers. Superman would end this in moments.

2. Superman's attributes outclass Kirby's. Superman is 6'3", an experienced fighter and tactician, and has a genius-level IQ. Kirby is roughly 8 inches tall, has the mindset of a child, and is largely driven by hunger. Kirby is simply not prepared to face such an enemy.

3. Experience is on Superman's side. Whereas Kirby has never faced an enemy with abilities even close to those of his current opponent, Superman is very familiar with ability-copying foes. For example, Superman has defeated Parasite [3], an enemy capable of draining his powers, on multiple occasions.

I'm sure the audience is as eager as I am to see my opponent's arguments, so the floor is all yours =D

You know, had Pro not bragged specifically about defending seemingly crazy arguments in the comments, I would have seen this coming.

Anyway, extend my arguments.

Well, there you go. My opponent never actually presented an argument and I doubt an adequate one actually exists. Please vote Con and thanks for reading!

Ghost Rider is one of the few I'm not really familiar with, but there's always Marvel wiki =D

Kirby may get a chance to stab Superman with kryptonite and then bury him under a kryptonite island...wait...that doesn't work either.
