I have a hard time swallowing someone quantifying the power difference between characters (i.e., "Wonder Woman is 80% as strong"). It sounds so silly and ignorant.

If Superman was substantially more powerful (i.e., 20% more powerful *is* substantial) then Wonder Woman would have ZERO chance to fight him on even terms if he was trying to kill her and she was on the defensive...

Could you see Black Widow breaking Luke Cages ribs with one hit?

If Sentry were trying to kill Ms. Marvel would she perform as well as Diana did against Superman? I doubt it...

> Thinking on this - Superman took everything Thor had in their 2nd encounter. Thor gave him everything he had to give and we can be sure he was using Mjolnir to do it, it's the only way he could have stayed in a fight with superman in that particular winner-takes-all scenario and the hammer being charged proves it for me.
> So Wonder Woman has the same powers as Superman but is a hugely better fighter, she's not as powerful but the gap is not that big to my mind - if you look at the two times she fought a Killer all-out Superman you get a good gauge as to how close they might actually be normally... so translate that into a fight with Hercules and the fact Diana was holding what 'He' did to her mother and I don't see why she indeed shouldn't be the superior combatant in that situation.
