If his plan had gone off he would be in the range of Kefka for WTF power scales of outright godhood and without he is rather insane, he doesn't loose to a couple of rando's so much as Cloud has the same genova cell weirdness that he does and can fight on his metaphysical level.
Wasnt the world stream also rejecting him at that point as well? Or at least trying to. I know he was holding back the whole aeris anti meteor spell thing which likely also handicapped him to at least some extent.
