    Honestly, given the relative strength involved, Norrin not being able to get away once the beating starts is pretty legit, as far as such things go.
    Also, there appears to be some weird energy involved with the first hit, what's up with that? Just artistic, or a plot point?

    Never saw the Cube feat, when did he do that one?

    And, to the OP. Which version of Superman are we talking about here?

    Regular Superman, sorry don't know much at all about the new Supes fiasco from the reboot.

    Not really much of a fiasco, really. (As far as Rumbles is concerned, I can't speak for the quality of the stories) He's actually been portrayed as overall pretty damn powerful given the relative screentime he's had.

    Well, he doesn't do any better against Sentry than Post-Crisis Superman, so it doesn't really matter here.

    Is he more or less powerful than the Superman before him? Also his our Superman we knew and loved for years gone now?

    Depends on if you count the various stories where Superman showed some truly ludicrous stuff. We don't for Rumbles, but that says nothing about elsewhere.

    As I recall, his current best feat is benchpressing the Earth's weight for days without too much trouble.

    Yeah, the pre-Reboot universe is pretty much gone.

    The answer really depends on which Gladiator we're talking about, which is something the thread title doesn't specify. If it's this guy, then the answer is "not very".

    Which would either be some major PIS that the Surfer isn't dodging those or an indication that Thanos is hitting him fast enough to effectively stun-lock him. So, I'm not actually trying to claim he can hit SS many times faster than SS can detect, just fast enough to continue hitting the guy before he can recover from the first punch. (Though that he can aim a punch in Norrin's direction and actually connect in the first place is pretty darned impressive, considering the Surfer's own reaction speed.)
    Sufer has been hit by a lot of people without superspeed before too though; Hulk and Thor for example. It seems more likely that Surfer didn't use his superspeed due to PIS more than anything.

    I don't know why, but that scan just reminded me of the comic where Spider-man uses his webbing to cause Surfer to trip and fall off his board. Does Spider-man have an aura that does to heralds what Deathstrokes aura does to speedsters? Only time will tell.

    A woman can move a lot faster with her skirt up than a man can with his pants down.

    Just for laughs:



    There is probably some in story reason for that happening, it's been a while since I read the issue.

    Is he punching the yellow out of Surfer?
