Goku Vs Superman 2011 by thelearningcurv Goku Vs Superman 2011 by thelearningcurv
.....back around 2005 I did an image most of you know from me featuring Superman Vs. Goku. I was inspired by an article in Wizard Magazine featuring these two alien icon's.

The argument as to who would win this bout is as polarized as the Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers rivalry. Both teams have immensely high record # of championships, but no one fan wants both teams winning. Either people go for one or the other. This rivalry is almost exactly the same, and i am happy to have been a part of that debate!

Let the debates begin!

Love how you have this fight in what looks like a typical Dragon Ball Z fighting ground with tall stone formations with grass on top. You also seem to capture the look of each character very well. Though it seems Superman is looking at another opponent looking at another opponent in the distance, it could be Gohan and friends and Goku might get off a direct hit on Superman next. The source of light that is reflecting off those involved in the battle could be distracting Superman as well. It seems to be a well put together piece in my humble opinion.

Many go with Superman?
I'm sure I'm one of the many more who'd go with Goku! (who doesn't go stale after becoming so powerful)

Most go with Goku because of their tastes... the truth is Superman is just stronger, but Goku is more fun...

Goku vs Superman death battle is misleading. Screw Attack made up their own formula to calculate Goku's power. It's a lie.…
Screw Attack also said Goku couldn't teleport easily, but that's a lie too. They used Kid Buu blowing up the earth and Goku failing to teleport as an example of that, but Goku was trying to get to Supreme Kai who lives in a dimension far away outside the cosmos sphere which takes longer and is harder to do. Furthermore Goku was freaking out his sons were about to die and the world was about to end. Goku has teleported in battle before many times fighting Buu, Cell, rescuing Piccolo and Tien from Cell, and even in Battle of gods against Birusu. As for Superman destroying a solar system, that was Pre Crisis Superman and he did it after magic dust gave him the power to. Superman fans take everything of context. Superman does have limits too. He almost died before from absorbing too much solar energy at once in All Star Superman when he rescued a scientist's spaceship from falling into the sun.

The truth of the matter is in cannon Superman, her has gotten so powerful that he has been rebooted. Not once, but several times. He got boring from how powerful he has become. All Star Superman is as cannon as Kingdom Come where he becomes so powerful from absorbing solar energy for so long that he no longer needs the sun either. 

What makes this match fun is that both characters are so powerful that either character could win and it'd make sense... IF we have fun with it and don't get personal about it. Too many people get defensive about it and that takes the fun out of the entertainment. 

FYI, Superman never has died, and Goku has, so there's that... heh(poke poke, jab jab)
