It's quite obvious that Toriyama sold out and made Goku the best. Original plot notes indicate that Gohan was supposed to surpass his father (ala Perfect Cell saga). Following the original story would have been one that ultimate follows human story telling methodology. If you have looked into Joseph Campbell's Path of the Hero (as mentioned in Joe Rogan's Podcast).
The Path of the Hero can be witnessed in countless tales throughout history: Star Wars, Lion King, Spider-Man, etc...
The young hero must face the demons of his father (parental figure) and overcome the secrets that are later revealed to him in order to claim his rightful place and grow into manhood, sort of like a right of passage that he must earn.
Anywho, Goku was a great character, but GT isn't part of the story and the Buu saga was not originally intended to be part of the saga and thus I don't like it because the Buu saga seems to detract from the overall story and character development. GT (self-admittedly I never watched it in its entirety) was made by some fan boys with Akira's permission.
Son Gohan ala Perfect Cell saga is the hero of the story.
Yeah but that plot went down the drain.
To the O.P
This would make sense if you would reffer to Super saiyan 1,2 & 3 as MW, LHW & HW.
Or LW & WW, BJ Penn is Vegeta and GSP is skilled but pussy ass Goku. For example.
Your post is fitting to mine since BJ quit when he was over-matched by GSP.
Yeah but fighting in SS4 with those gamma rays or what ever they are called. GSP wasn't man enough to fight in SS3 he only accepted to fight out of BJ's natural Power level.
Goku's allways been one of my favourites after Piccolo but i've been watching A LOT of team four star DBZ lately, Vegeta is awesome there.
