        I think of Superman as physically superior, but Thor has a host of EP and mystical powers so that it is difficult to say if Superman is overall more powerful.

    Is still a not-cannon story. In another story Batman states that Hyde is powerful enough to push Superman into space and Venom has beaten him up so I wouldn't count that much on those kind of story. That said I agree that Superman has the edge on strenght and durability and Thor has the advantage in magic.
    That said it depends on the writer how much Supes can be affected by magic. Sometime a mere spell can take him down easely, other times he can fight powerful beings which use magic and stand his ground or even win.


These arent non canon though. Marvel has acknowledged Amalgam universe as one of the official realities in marvel multiverse.

Superman will always be showed as favorite against Thor though. As he has already been shown three times.

...to say that three favorable appearances suggests that Superman will "always" be showed as superior against Thor, especially since both Jurgens and Buseik are Superman advocates and were given carte blanche to publish their views as such. If a pro-Thor writer were given similar liberties, I wonder if you would argue to the veracity of the published stories as many others are doing now. Sadly, you are probably right, but not for the reasons you think. As DC's flagship character (IMO more so than Batman), I doubt that we will ever see Superman lose another battle to any Marvel character, even one whose power set exploits one of Superman's known weaknesses.
