Superman vs. Goku

Another sweet pic I came across. Don't know the artist, but man, this is one tight pic and it will make a sweet wallpaper.

The topic of Goku vs. Supes has been brought up many times in the past. Some say that Goku wouldn't even need to go to level 3 against Supes. Me? Well, I don't doubt the strength of the most powerful Saiyan, but the Kryptonian isn't exactly a pushover. Superman could probably wreck a couple of planets if he wanted to.

If these ever were to throw down, I'd want to watch the fight from another planet on TV. You've seen how powerful these dudes are. Just imagine neither one of them holding anything back.

Most of the time, it's a question of whether this is pre or post crisis Superman.

Without being a Super Saiyan, Goku does catch a mountain Frieza chucks at him, and perhaps on power alone, I'm thinking Goku would take Superman (esp. since his base power level increases with his training), but if you add in the destruction of planets, then Goku is in trouble. That's if Superman was going for the kill, natch.

Goku's best bet would be to instant transmission somewhere off-planet he can reach, although that wouldn't win the fight for him, it'd just prevent him from being killed.

I suppose other factors would be speed. I'm not sure how often they show Superman incorporated speed in his fighting, but I know they sure as heck do in Dragonball, plus that can be used for the after-image technique. Perhaps the most memorable usage of it is during the fight with Cell, when you think the Kienzan energy discs cut Goku, but they only cut an after-image.

I also remember SSJ3 Gotenks circling the Earth multiple times in seconds just for the hell of it.

I think there is going to be a draw unless Goku manages to shoot Kryptonite or Red Sun ray out of his hands :p.

Superman doesn't change the mountains shape and place when he fights, Goku & crew do so

They won't stay pure hearts if they destroyed planets now would they?

Goku does use his abilities more than Supes would so now that I think about it, he probably would win. And I always forget about pre or post Crisis Superman. Freaking DC.
