hello, i know you explained why you felt that the outcome to the superman/thor battle came out as it is. Even though i disagree, you do not have to explain again. What i want to know is if you consider thor the most powerful avenger? why or why not? Also, you stated that herc did not lose to wonderwoman, but it was clear that she had the upper hand in the fight (which i did not like). Is wonderwoman stronger than hercules in your opinion because he lost his immortality? Or does that not make a difference. Also, supes comment about thor being his single most difficult opponent is lame: why did you include that? To placate us thor fans, when we know that supes fought doomsday and died as a result of the battle? I would appreciate your response. thanks.

He's generally listed that way, and it may well be true, though I think we're better off not quantifying such things.

Did she? She had him in a wrestling hold when Aquaman ended the battle. He had her in a wrestling hold later. Which one is the upper hand?

> Is wonderwoman stronger than hercules in your opinion because he lost his immortality?>

Wonder Woman is said to be as strong as the DCU Hercules, which would make her as strong as the DCU Captain Marvel. That's pretty strong, with a fair amount of speed on top of that.

Superman said it because that's how he felt at the time. Not everyone confines themselves to rigorously-accurate statements at all times -- if someone says, "That was the best meal I ever had," they may not mean it literally, having considered every other meal they've ever had in their life before saying it. They may just be speaking emotionally, reacting to how good the meal was.
