Super, Smashing, Great.

Superheroes! Fictional characters of unprecedented physical prowess dedicated to acts of derring-do in the public interest. I stole that line from Wikipedia and I salute whoever wrote it as it is one of the greatest sentences ever written.

Anyway, they all have unique powers, some have powers that thwart the powers of others. Essentially making them superer. But who is The Superest?

I'm glad you asked! Two artists; Kevin Cornell & Matthew Sutter are dedicated to answering that very question. They are engaged in a game that has been going on for over 8 months now, wherein one of them draws a superbeing with specific powers and the other then has to design one whose powers negate the first and then it's back to the first guy... and well, you see what I mean.

Some examples:

is defeated by:

who is bested by:

and so on. It's a great read, you can see the current champ Here or the whole dang lot (start at the bottom) Here.
