I've done posts about how the Ghost Rider, Spawn, and others are way more powerful than people actually realize. However, this notion easily applies the best to the Silver Surfer.

And I can prove it!

1. He Can Travel 500,000 Light Years In SECONDS

There are few faster than the Silver Surfer, and his speed has allowed him to perform some very impressive feats. This includes stuff like flying out of the galaxy in just seconds, catching up to an enemy who was already three light years away, and even searching an entire planet for Namor in less time than it took for Dr. Strange to finish his sentence!

2. He Has Over 20 Different Powers And Abilities!

When it comes to the Silver Surfer's powers, I really don't know where to begin, so I'll list them below:

  • Super Strength, Speed, Durability, Stamina
  • Manipulation of the Fundamental Forces
  • Matter Manipulation
  • Gravity Manipulation
  • Energy Manipulation/Projection/Absorption
  • Flight
  • Telekinesis
  • Telepathy/Psionics
  • Force Fields Generation
  • Intangibility
  • Regeneration
  • Space/Time Manipulation/Travel
  • Dimensional Manipulation/Travel
  • Astral Manipulation
  • Body Size Manipulation
  • Shape-shifting
  • Immortality
  • Healing
  • Cosmic Awareness
  • Super-Senses

Just to name a few.

3. He's Almost Impossible To Hurt/Surfs Supernovas For Fun

Yes, you read that right, the Silver Surfer enjoys surfing the largest and most destructive explosions in space for fun! Furthermore, he flies through stars no problem, including a red star that had planet melting heat. He also took a hit from an atomizing gun and was completely unfazed, he took a hit from She-Hulk and was completely unfazed, and has casually taken hits capable of reducing planets to ashes, without problems.

4. His Strength Could Be Infinite

Because Galactus granted Silver Surfer the ability to wield the power cosmic, his strength is said to be infinite. But because he has so many other abilities, he's never has to use it. However, it does explain why he was able to backhand the Incredible Hulk with no problem (although he's not the only one who could pull off that last one)!

5. His Fighting Record Is More Than Impressive

I'm not just saying Silver Surfer can beat almost anybody, it's been proven in several comics that he's capable of doing just that. Some of his victories include beating a clone of himself, easily defeating Deadpool, almost beating Thor, and nearly killing the Hulk by draining him of his gamma radiation.

Check out his big screen debut in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer below:

So, I think it's clear that the Silver Surfer isn't someone you'd want to fight. But to understand the true nature of how powerful the he really is, it'd take an article much longer than this one.


Who do you think could beat the Silver Surfer?
