When he joined JLA and the team tested him he was said to have the highest energy attacks they had ever known. IIRC the words used were "almost limitless" in regards to his energy manipulation. His best feat was during the Ark where It was shown Bloodwynde was shown to be MMH and the dimensional entity who wanted Ray referred to him as the JLA's most powerful member. In that ark his energy allowed the entity to escape a dimensional prison that had helt it for generations. He was alsk anle tk a sorb ALL the light within that dimension and then absorb energy and from outside basically drawing the entity back in.
combine that with his a ability to create energy constructs ( like a GL) and his vertual indestrucibility in light form, plus his ability to reset/ heal any damage done in non light form when he is light and I think he cN make a pretty damn good shot of it.
Superman Blue wins. When Tolos possessed him he said that his body had "beyond infinite potential". Superman has done everything you listed at a greater scale and with more skill. The main thing is that Ray can only manipulate light while Blue can manipulate entire EM spectrum and beyond like magic or psychic energy. He wins.
Fine on the feats, and I agree on the outcome, but avoid the hyperbole of "beyond infinite potential." Besides the statement being logically nonsensical (akin to a grade schooler countering infinity with infinity + 1), statements like that only hold water if they are backed with, well, anything besides subjective exaggerations.
Just one half of his being had enough power to restore earth after it was completely drained of its energy and was self-destructing. Other half was so fast that Flash had trouble seeing him move and he was everywhere on the earth at the same time to stop it from self-destructing, he moved so fast. Here is his respect thread
That's not just an absorption feat, it's an emission feat.
Neron was causing the Earth and Moon to collide. He created a magnetic field opposite the Earth's, thus repelling the two back into their proper orbits. It's actually a pretty huge feat moving the Moon with just energy against Neron's magic.
"And then there was nothing. A once broken something now void.
And on the first day, Doom spoke... 'Be.'
And then there was life."
WOW. I only ever caught about 8 to 10 stories he appeared in an honestly nothing I ever saw was any where near that impressive ( though i hind sight I should have realized since all were either team ups or team stories).
My vote shifts to SMB. I'd still say Ray can make a fight of it though, it's been my contention for some time he get's seriously underrated in most forums.
