Quote:One issue even featured electric Superman. How does that factor in comparing Thor and Superman? Ok, story-wise, let's assume Access got regular Superman, does he have electric powers to snap out the heroes from both universes out of their funk? No. The electric shock did not even KO any of the weaker heroes, so I doubt if it could have KOed Thor. So, Access bringing someone who can put a stop to it does not mean he is the most powerful, but he has the powers to accomplish the task (jolting the heroes just enough to snap out of their mental incapacity at the time...which regular Superman cannot do).
What? That was just to showcase that the writer thought Superman could stop both jla and Avengers.
And Electric Superman was specefically less powerful.
Quote:The second issue you cited, Thow wasn't even there, except in action figure form. So Reed Richards said that Superman is PERHAPS the most powerful hero in both worlds, so what? Franklin Richards said "I bet Superman is bigger than Thor", which is of course not true (Superman is 6'3, Thor is 6'6). When John Byrne wrote Reed saying "superman is perhaps the most powerful hero in both worlds and now he is under the thrall of Galactus"....or something to that effect....storywise it made sense...because by then it made the "Herald of Galactus Superman" that much more of a threat. Hiw stupid would it have sounded if John Byrne wrote Reed saying something like..."Superman, the most powerful hero in both our worlds next to Thor, Hulk, Martian Manhunter, etc." Silly, right? Of course.
Or Dan Jurgens thinks Superman is more powerful than Thor. Which he has already confirmed in interviews?
...Dan Jurgens picked Thor to beat Superman. The diehard Superman fan interviewer, clearly distraught by his answer, tried to ask him a leading follow up question by asking him "thor will win despite Superman being much stronger"(paraphrasing, not an exact quote, but essentially the same), to which Dan Jurgens just laughed and said "yeah, yeah", no doubt feeling sorry for the poor Superman fan. That's the interview you were referring to.
About All Access...nope. it did not establish that Superman can beat both the JLA and Avengers teams. Whatever gave you that idea? He just snapped them out of their mental funk with that electric jolt...nothing more, nothing less.
