Goku and Superman have extremely similar origins and roles in their respective universes, leaving fans debating who would win in a battle. However, in the world of the Dragon Balls, Goku has proven his superiority over Suppaman, who is considered the equivalent of Dragon Ball’s Superman. Suppaman may look like Superman, but he lacks the strength and ability to match Goku, showing that Goku is the undeniable champion within the bounds of the Dragon Balls.
Reality since the introduction gokuincludes full details of his origins in Dragon ball lore, fans were wondering who would win the battle between the Saiyan hero and DC’s Man of Steel himself, Superman. Goku and Superman’s origins and roles in their respective universes are so similar that the curiosity of who can beat the other is not unfounded, which explains why this debate has erupted in anime and manga fandom for decades. However, that argument was settled long ago in the world of the Dragon Balls, as Goku proved his superiority over Superman (well, that sort of thing).
Goku is a Saiyan from Planet Vegeta who came to Earth as an infant just when his planet was on the verge of tidal destruction. Similarly, Superman is a Kryptonian from Planet Krypton who came to Earth as an infant just when his planet was on the verge of total annihilation. Obviously, there are some obvious similarities there, but that’s not the end of them. When both heroes arrived on Earth, they were taken in by kindhearted people who taught them to use their powers for the benefit of humanity. Not only that, upon reaching adulthood, both heroes form their own teams of superpowered individuals (Z-Fighters and Justice League), both of whom have repeatedly been responsible for rescuing the entire population. universe. Basically, there’s a good reason fans have long compared Goku and Superman, though they’ve completely forgotten that Dragon Ball already has its own designated ‘Superman’: Suppaman (or Sourman, his other name).
Suppaman is Dragon Ball’s ‘Superman’, and he’s weaker than Goku
Suppaman first appeared in Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball chapter 82. In this chapter, a villain with the Red Ribbon Army (General Blue) is chasing Goku and Bulma, as he tries to steal the Dragon Balls they’ve collected to bring back to his leader. , Red Commander. In the middle of the chase, General Blue tries to steal a car driven by none other than Suppaman while the hero is still in plain clothes. After running into a nearby phone booth, Suppaman changed into his superhero costume and challenged General Blue, only to quickly surrender when he realized how strong Blue really was.
Aesthetically, Suppaman is the visual resemblance to not only Superman but also Clark Kent, given how similar both his superhero costume and casual clothes are to each of Superman’s dual personality halves. core. That’s where the similarities end, though, which means that ‘Superman’ in Dragon Ball is actually pretty pathetic – although that’s actually good news for Goku fans. In the universe, Suppaman is the Superman of the Dragon Balls, and it has been confirmed that he can’t even match the likes of General Blue. This means that Goku is much stronger than ‘Superman’ in his universe, proving once and for all that Goku is superior to the limits of the Dragon Ball continuum.
While it remains a mystery as to who will actually win the fight between Goku and DC’s Superman, there’s no mystery about who will win the fight between Goku and Superman. goku And Dragon ball‘S’Superman‘, since it’s clear that Suppaman won’t stand a chance against the Saiyan hero.
