"Forgot about that Boxing match! Nice! My case is that Thor was a top tier Deity well Ares was second tier, feared by mortals yes, but what god was'nt?"

In every cultural myth there are always mortal warriors who call Gods out. Always. One of the main themes is that mortals are alike the Gods, and if Gods challenge cosmic forces above them, so do they.

"Thor should be at a higher level, and if worship meant anything Thor should be the most powerful heto god there is, as he was also worshiped by farmers and poor folk, he was worshiped by all, with no need of sacrifice"

What does the need or not of sacrifices mean here? That is just a cultural thing, nothing more.

"yup being labled a god of war means squat to a Norse God! Not to mention the Thundergod is almost always the most powerful deity in any pantheon, or second". Let`s be frank. No. Let`s not even kid here. Myth heracles was physically stronger than myth Thor. Zeus was clearly overall more powerful as a Stormgod, not to mention physically stronger as well. Maui of the Haitian culture dragged islands from the botton of the ocean and pulled the Sun closer to the Earth...etc.

Thor is one of the most beloved heroic characters of world myth, no doubt, but let`s not exagerate to that point in claiming he would be top two among every pantheon available in the world.

You have very good feats on which to showcase for Herc, but so many Stories are lost, destroyed or inconsistant, that Thor is lucky to have to have the stories he has, so I am not getting into it, as it stands Herc has more to go with. Still Thor was said to be the Strongest of Gods and men and I doubt any viking would believe Hercules was stronger or even be impressed, and I doubt the a greek would be with Thor,.

Moving islands really aint much to one who lifted the Midgard Serpent and the Sun was attached to a chariot in the norse myths, it would hardly be impressive to them. I would'nt doubt that a viking hearing Hercules hold the heavens, they would say something pretty much equal if not greater for Thor or just laugh and dismiss the argument all together, i'll pass on this debate
