I disagree. There cannot be a comparative without a
superlative. I think the above point is very straightforward
and clear. We may not be able to identify that superlative,
but, we postulate its existence by recognizing comparatives.

God is by definition absolute; any parallel concept is essentially
identical. So what you have suggested is something similar to the
existence of multiple plenaries, like the kalAs and avatAras of
Lord ViSNu.
