Eh, I wish there would have been more on screen evidence. It really irked me in ep3 when they are fighting and they get into a "force duel" if you will, they both try to do a force push on each other. This is a case where Anakin's raw power could have been shown, but no it showed them as more or less even.

It kind of fluctuated, didn't it? In Legends, Anakin first started out as weaker since he was untrained, but then he became stronger between ep 1 and 2. Then by the clone wars, Obi-Wan overtook him again, and then Anakin overtook Obi-Wan again by the end of the Clone Wars. Then, when they were fighting on Mustafar, Obi-Wan increased in power immensely, and started rivaling Vader in power. Then Vader was put in the suit, and for that reason Obi-Wan overtook him. Then Vader gained a mastery in the Force, and Obi-Wan grew old, so Vader overtook him again.
Originally during the making of ANH, Vader was supposed to be 2/3 as powerful as Obi-Wan, but that was retconned in the Legends continuity. Not in the Canon, as far as I know, though.
I don't know why people eye him as some god-like figure?
He was conceived by the Force. Big deal. There are Force-users un-sprung by the Force and still possess an enormous Force strength(e.g: Vitiate)
He is still an above-average Jedi despite the prophecy and characters' claims.
Anakin Skywalker gets so much hype.
