I believe that Superman is necessarily stronger than either Thor or Wonder Woman. If Thor was equally strong, then having a weapon like a hammer would easily make him the favorite, especially if the hammer is magical. Picture you vs. a clone of you, with your clone being given a baseball bat to use against you. Who do you think is going to win every time? In order to make it an even battle, Superman would really HAVE to have an edge in strength. Otherwise, it shouldn't be much of a contest.
Ditto with Wonder Woman. J states that Wonder Woman is about as strong as Superman, but far more skilled. If that's the case, Superman should NOT be the top dog in DC - Wonder Woman should. Picture you vs. a clone of you, with your clone being trained in dozens of martial arts for his entire life and given body armor and a whip. The untrained version of you couldn't possibly be considered more powerful.
So I hold that Superman is the strongest among the DC heroes, and Hulk is the strongest among the Marvel heroes because it's the only way they would be able to stay competitive against some of the other characters with more gear or special abilities.
