I've had this argument before--this all hinges on whether or not there is kryptonite in the Bat-belt. 

There's shark repellant in there, so Batman could repell a shark that Aquaman sent after him...

Green Lantern.

He should be able to make nuclear weapons and an army of tanks or whatever he sees fit to destroy his foe.

The onslaught of his army based on sheer numbers would defeat any superhero's abilities.  I dont know of a super hero who can deal with more than one enemy at a time.  Sheer numbers could defeat any superhero.

I'm going to think outside the box a little bit and change my vote to the Silver Surfer.  He was responsible (along with the help of the Fantastic Four) for repelling the attack of Galactus.  I have to think he would be able to deal with Superman, or the Green Lantern.

The only way silver sufer could defeat green lantern is if he stole the physical green lantern, the green lantern uses the physical lantern to charge his ring (the ring that can make nukes), and their battle insued at a time period when the ring was not charged.

FYI green lantern has to recharge his ring ever 24 hours, much like a cell phone.

Respectively yours,

So, to make a syllogism:

Green Lantern can defeat anyone if we assume the integrity of the physical green lantern.
Such integrity can be assumed in a given fight with Silver Surfer.
Therefore, Green Lantern could defeat Silver Surfer.

However, Silver Surfer was responsible for the defeat of Galactus, who can literally EAT WORLDS.  I think it's fair to say that in such a battle, it would be on:  on like Donkey Kong.

IIRC, Kyle Rayner no longer has to recharge his ring, but other GLs still do.

What about Splinter, from the TMNT?  Man, Splinter was one bad dude.
