This thread is based on the new movie Battle of Gods. Have you guys watched it? For those who haven't, I'l explain...
Although I think both Goku and Vegeta are incoherently portrayed as stronger fighters than Ultimate Gohan in the anime version of DBZ, most people wouldn't accept that. Anyway, Battle of Gods shows new evidence for it.
First of all, none of the three stands any chance against Bills, but while both Goku and Gohan lose in two hits, Vegeta (even before his "rage boost", which is already being brought up in battle forums) manages to take several hits without losing it - even then, he looked pretty tougher than Goku and Gohan. Later, Vegeta is enraged when Bills slaps Bulma and (according to Mutenroshi) "finally surpasses Goku", which implies that Goku was stronger than him in the beginning, and thus Bills probably used more power when first fighting against him (that explains Goku losing in two hits).
So, based on their respective fights (as it seems): SS2 Vegeta (not enraged) > SS3 Goku >=< Ultimate Gohan
Based on Mutenroshi's statement: SSJ2 Vegeta (enraged) > SS3 Goku > SS2 Vegeta, who looks stronger than Ultimate Gohan.
Not to mention that the entire movie implies that Goku was, in its beginning at least, the strongest character. Vegeta surpassed him for a moment, but Gohan couldn't do a thing at any point.
Do you get my point?
So, for those of you who've watched the movie, what do you think? I'll accept the conclusions based on Mutenroshi's statement.
