Remember, in today's skies air superiority is not completely based on aircraft maneuverability and speed, but rather the avionics suite and weapons systems of the aircraft. True the F-22 is absolutely amazing regarding its performance characteristics, but it isn't necessarily the most dangerous aircraft out there. The F-35, to my limited knowledge, has a much more advanced and capable avionics suite which makes it very dangerous, despite it's less capable maneuvering capabilities.
The Russians have always been very proud of their aircraft, and you can find many many videos of it's Su's and MiGs in aerial demonstrations; many saying that it can out turn/climb/accelerate/etc US aircraft. I never pay those too much attention.
