Are any characters overpowered?

Hey, I can't help but to think I am cheating when using certain characters. You know the guy that floats? I feels as if I am cheating when playing him since Meat Boy players can't float over obstacles. 
 
Does anyone get the same feeling?

I kinda feel that way when playing with the kid, but the characters do have their weaknesses which I feel balance it out.

The thing is though, if you manage to get the kid in the first place, you pretty much deserve to use that character to his fullest advantage.

Meat Boy may not have any powers, but he is the fastest character in the game. You want a good time on most levels, you use Meat Boy. Yes, Commander Video floats, but his controls suck and that float is especially unwieldy. 
 
As for The Kid? He can score great times on a few levels, but Meat Boy still beats him on most.

The only character that's overpowered right now from what I've heard is Josef, as his physics are apparently bugged at the moment and he moves faster even than Meat Boy.

Meat Boy is the way to go, the kid has a double jump which can be helpful in later levels but his lack of speed brings him down in my books.

Sticks to walls, so I guess it is like Gish?

Both the headcrab and the goo ball are just Gish reskins, as I understand it.
