To be fair, the Death Battle match made with Goku and Supes didn't account for Goku's recent Super Saiyan God transformation since Battle of Gods wasn't released until months later when the Death Battle video came out. If Goku could start out in SSG form, then he could easily cream current Supes (not so much with Pre-Crisis, One Million and Prime). However, the form's strict setup for it (requiring six SSJs to form and only five minutes of use) makes it quite impractical to setup in a battle scenario and the rules of Death Battle would prohibit any means for Goku to gain the SSG form since, for the most part, they favor one-on-one battles for characters without moral restraints, prep or outside help.
@Shadowchaos: Before Battle of Gods came out, any claim of solar system or universe busting and FTL speed I heard from DBZ diehards would be a load of garbage for me since onscreen feats would contradict what they claim. However in the case of Battle of Gods, there is a legitimate case of SSG Goku, Bills and Whis being at least solar system busting and having FTL speeds with how Bills casually mopped the floor of all the Z Fighters before Goku's SSG transformation and Whis shown to easily cross an unknown number of galaxies in a matter of minutes.
I still respect Death Battle, since they have been right on most of their battles except a few(Link vs Cloud and Peach vs Zelda, to name a few). It's just that when you look at Goku and Superman's stats, even with SSJG, Goku can't hope to defeat Superman if Superman decided to sundip for even a minute. DBZ seems to have a nasty habit of "tell don't show" with their larger feats, since in the manga and anime, nothing larger than a planet has been destroyed. People like Cell and Bills CLAIM to be able to destroy a solar system or a galaxy, but they have yet to prove it through feats. Even I as a normal human could say that I can destroy a building in one punch, but I couldn't even dream of being able to do that in reality.
But I don't want to start a fanboy war, so I will just leave it at that. Merry x-mas!
@Kobra678: Watch the episodes of it. The hosts appear to do well enough in their research of the abilities, weapons and mentalities of the various characters involved in their matchups, though even they have their outcomes or information I would disagree with or refute. For instance with the Link/ Cloud battle, I doubt Link could survive a match against Cloud thanks to the latter's superior attributes and Link was set to automatically be equipped with any necessary item he needed for the match.
Let's see (this doesn't count recap movies or remakes)...
@Kobra678: A number of these titles take place in alternate universes apart from the Universal Century timeline of the franchise. The UC timeline consists of the original series, Zeta, ZZ, Char's Counterattack, 0080, 0083, Victory, F-91, Unicorn, parts of Evolve, and the MS IGLOO OVAs.
