Superman has too much of EVERTHING! He's WAY too strong, WAY too fast, and overall WAY too POWERFUL! It just isn't fair, there arent many superhero's or villans that can beat the guy, especially in the marvel universe. Superman could singlehandedly take down the Avengers, The Fantastic 4, The X-Men, the Teen Titans, I mean hell! As far as the comicbook world goes Superman could beat GOD! As a matter of fact, as far as the comicbook world goes Superman is a god. Only God, or a God-like being can turn back time, but superman did that with ease. He steaped all over God's turf when he did that. The only non-Kryptonian like Sup was Capt Marvel and even he got his a$$ kicked by the "Man of steel!"

Don't get me wrong, Sup is cool and all but he's so damn unstopable! In fact I can olnly think of a few basic comicbook ppl who could beat him for sure. Those indivisuals are as followed.

1. The Phenix
2. Hancock [jk]
3. Thanos
4. Doomsday
5. Dr.Strange

Thats pretty much all I can think of.

The only thing not overated about Superman was his death. It just had to happen. A mortal being as powerful as Sup just HAD TO DIE! It wouldn't have been fair. I mean COME ON! We got guys like the Titans, the F4, and the X-Men bussin their asses over stuff Superman couldv'e done with a flick of the wrist! It just wouldn't have been fair if Sup lived to old age against all those who didn't like Daredevil, Aquaman, Maxima, Omen, Superboy, and Captian America. These guys died so youg and so damn weak when compared to Sup, so it would have been just wrong for him to have lived a full life when they didn't.

All I'm saying is that Sup is too much of everything. He's just too overated. This guy could destroy the entire universe if he wanted to, and he could destroy over half the Marvel and DC Universes combined with no problem untill one of the guys on my list showed up. [but even then he wouldn't go down easy. Unless the person he was fighting was the Phenix.]

Superman is too big, too bad, and too unbaetable. Me, I'm a real comicbook fan, and as a real fan I need at least a few elements of realism in what I'm reading. Any real fan feels the same way and knows that a hero thats too farfetched doesn't make for too good a charecter. Superman was damn near unbeateble, a mortal being of near absolute power. His only true flaw was his weakness to kryponium. Besides that he was invulurable.

Well I'm done, I eagerly await con's reply.

My opponent has the title as "Superman's abilities are WAY too overrated!"

Definition of overrated according to Dictionary.com
- "To rate or appraise too highly; overestimate: I think you overrate their political influence."

My opponent has stated:

"Superman has too much of EVERTHING! He's WAY too strong, WAY too fast, and overall WAY too POWERFUL! It just isn't fair, there arent many superhero's or villans that can beat the guy, especially in the marvel universe."

"Superman could singlehandedly take down the Avengers, The Fantastic 4, The X-Men, the Teen Titans, I mean hell! As far as the comicbook world goes Superman could beat GOD! As a matter of fact, as far as the comicbook world goes Superman is a god. Only God, or a God-like being can turn back time, but superman did that with ease. He steaped all over God's turf when he did that."

"Don't get me wrong, Sup is cool and all but he's so damn unstopable!"

My opponent obviously doesnt know the defonition of Overrated and meant
"Superman's abilitys are way to overpowered" (as Logical-Mast
er suggested.)

To redeem himself my opponent must now explain why "sup" is "overrated".

A note to sonofzapp - that means you must explain why his powers are bad. Be carful with your titles! And always be sure about the defonition of a word!

"You obviously don't know what "overrated" means."

Me or sonofzapp?

What I meant was, if he IS overrated, he certainly didn't give any good reason to think so. He should've made Superman's abilities seem bad, instead of saying they're great.

As a matter of fact, Batman has kicked Superman's a$$ a dozen times in the comics. Not to mention that the modern Superman prevents himself from using all of his powers to their fullest because he fears the destruction he could cause without restraining them. Hence, easy debate for CON. Then again, the term "overrated" is quite troubling.
