> I think Wonder Man should be top tier as well, but not as strong as Thor. Actually, the ORIGINAL handbook listed Thor at 95 and Wonder Man at 90. They've had several instances where they showed that Wonder Man is not in Thor's class. Yeah, he had a good showing against Thor in that West Coast Avengers annual, but we all know that Thor has been on Marvel's SPIT LIST for decades now. The Thor of the 60's and 70's would have NEVER been that week. And as far as that Handbook, there was absolutely NO reason to list Thor below Hercules. Personally, I like Wonder Man to be stronger than the Thing and Namor, but weaker than Thor and the Hulk. However, he should be the most physically invulnerable of all of them.
Actually, it was the Thor(and the rest of the Avengers)of the 60's that Wonder Man beat in Avengers vol 1 issue 9. But I agree with what you say. Wonder Man is a notch below Thor but well above the Thing and a tad above a wet(but out of water)Namor.
wonderman sucker punched thor in avengers 9; he certainly did not beat him.
