    Average showings. GL and Flash vs. Superman. GL can't touch Superman, Flash made him look silly (then Supes made Flash look silly but each was obviously the two most powerful there). 1000 GL's vs SBP GLs lose, SBP vs. 3 Flashes Flashes win. Flash is on average at least equivalent and if not superior to GLs.

I'm not sure that's a fair analogy. SBP had a phobia when it came to Flashes. Also, Hal's given Superman a tough fight before.

    However I can understand the versatility argument and can agree that in many situations you are correct, but not all.

Of course Flash is going to fare better against some opponents than Green Lantern, but in general, Flash's versatility options are seldom used compared to Green Lantern's. Who's going to have more trouble against Flash's traditional rogue's gallery between Flash and GL? Captain Boomerang? Captain Cold? Heat Wave? Mirror Master? Trickster? Reverse Flash? On average, I think Green Lantern's going to have an easier time.

But what about GL's rogues - Solomon Grundy, Hector Hammond, Sinestro, Star Sapphire, Doctor Polaris, Krona, Major Force, Parallax, Atrocitus? I think it's pretty clear that Green Lantern will have a slightly easier time against most of them than Flash. It's also apparent that GL's rogue's gallery is much tougher.
