"Yeah im not seeing FTL anywhere here. Light can travel around the Earth 7 1/2 times in one second. (In Two seconds, light would have travels 15 times around the Earth etc etc).
It took Surfer Several Seconds. Surfer has many senses which can aid him in searching.
My Verdict NOT an FTL feat. "
So your ignoring the scan were the Surfer slams Thor into Mars from Earth's orbit? If he was using his senses, he wouldn't have left. He literally went to search a planet for a single person before Strange could finish his sentence.
"There could be more to this feat, but this single page you have presented is not FTL."
Cool. Still depicted faster than the entire DBZ cast.
"Surfer is lightspeed, however he can only attain FTL in HYPERSPACE. Anything that contradicts this is simply BAD WRITING or an Outlier. "
Your acting like hyperspace seperates them from the normal universe. Thor was hopping into it as he was cruising through the Solar System, just as Bill did when he easily went through half a galaxy after he saw his ship. There was nothing flashy about the process and they remained very much in said universe. I know your big on "NO! HE NO FTL!" but yeah, theres a reason why he could nearly snatch omnipotence from Thanos' fingers traveling millions of times the speed of light.
"Thor > SS"
Nope, Fraction literally had the Silver Surfer spending most of his 'fight' with Thor asking the Asgardians to stop and bickering with Thor, there is a reason why he did that. Because Norrin could have beaten him senseless with his damn board on it's own.
He has also go tagged by sub-sonic characters on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS. For all the high-end feats, surfer also has his low-end. People like to claim PIS, CIS and bad writing when its the low-end feats though. (When it should also apply to high-end feats within reason of-course )
Yes low ends where he is either extremely weakened, depowered, doesn't even acknowledge the person attacking him as a threat, etc. I'd rather not poke fun at Buu Saga plot holes that imply the Z fighters aren't close to light speed, but rather how this thread is turning into "The Silver Surfer isn't dat fast!" as if he needs to slug it out with the Z fighters in the same moronic way they fight one on one.
