I've been watching some DBZ recently and of course it got me to thinking about the age old question of super heroes vs the Z Fighters. Now the power scaling of Dragon Ball Z is frankly insane. Raditz, perhaps the weakest Saiyan we've ever seen, had a power level of 1 500 and he was capable of deflecting bullets. Before Z the characters were on a moon busting level at least and at that point none of them were as strong as Raditz. To put that number into perspective, Frieza's second form (of 4) had a power level over 1 million. And by Super, every Saiyan character has surpassed that by multitudes. Back during Vegeta and Goku's first fight Vegeta's Galick Gun attack was capable of destroying Earth. And when Goku's Kaoiken powered Kamehameha overpowered it, Vegeta took the full force of an attack beyond planet busting level and survived. And that was Vegeta at his *weakest*. Given the multiple powered forms the Saiyans have access to (Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan Rose, Ultra Instinct etc, not to even mention the power boosts given by fusion and the like) it's not much of a leap to say the Saiyans (Future Trunks, Trunks, Goten, Gohan, Vegeta and Goku) have power levels in the tens or hundreds of trillions, maybe even more. Now I'm sure most of you are familiar with the old Goku vs Superman match up. Personally I think it's a little presumptuous to assume Superman, especially in his current form, is even in Krillin's league, let alone Goku's. But of course the issue arises in that while the Z Fighters are all incredibly powerful, their powers are kind of straightforward. Their strength, speed, durability, endurance etc are all beyond even superhuman level and they have incredibly powerful energy manipulation that's really all they have. Pound for pound most of the comic book characters in their league have an extra ace up their sleeve: matter or reality manipulation. Whilst characters like Sentry or Thanos could never hope to match Goku or Vegeta in a hand to hand encounter, they could use matter manipulation to turn them to stone or the like. Likewise, while characters like the Hulk or Hercules at their strongest could probably match the Saiyans blow for blow, they aren't fast enough to fight them evenly. So my question is: do you think there are any characters that could match the Saiyans in an even fight? Someone with the strength and speed to keep up but don't have the advantage of being able to manipulate matter in such a way that would give them an unfair edge?
