Quote:Recently its a quite a raging debate whether JLA/Avengers is the only comparison between these two and I thought I should put all of the other meetings or comparison between Superman and Thor here.
Quote:Unlimited Access 3:
Quote:JLA is fighting Avengers, so Access brings one hero who can fix all of that mess. Its electric Superman of course.
Quote:How could Electric Superman be superior to one that control, manipulate and absorb Electricity on a ridiculous vast level?
Quote:It's Super Natural:
Quote:There's not even a is point of comparison- that is, if you want to be just and fair about the whole thing...
If you want a feat war, I can do that too. Energy Superman was a vastly better energy manipulator of all kinds than Thor.
Quote:Reed Richards says that Superman is perhaps the most powerful hero on both earths and Thor is explicitly name dropped by Franklin Richards as well.
Quote:There are other indirect comparisons as well but I think that puts Superman ahead of Thor in their encounters by quite a bit.
Quote:Here's the thing, Marvel acknowledges that Superman is the single and greatest most popular Super-Hero there is (although things are rapidly changing indeed with the exposure of other Super-Heroes). They wish they have a character on that level because they think that they would make a lot money because of it. Moreover, they're sincerely enamored with Superman, or anything that reminds him of him, because they were personally brought up reading his comics (ask Busiek who said that Superman is the greatest Super-Hero of all time: past, present and future- and they say that we're the fanboys!!!). That's why it's extraordinarily difficult for Thor to defeat the Hulk; regardless of Thor's powers, and skills (when Thor has defeated the likes of Galactus, Ego, Glory, etc., and the Hulk has been defeated by the likes of Black Bolt, Captain America, Iron Man, Valkyrie, Batman, etc.). Yet, a Superman clone in Hyperion can easily defeat the Hulk, and another Superman Clone in Sentry can stop a Sky-Lord's weapon in Mjolnir (Odin created this weapon and imbued it with his powers) easily with his mind (psionics); when that same hammer can cause great pain to the likes of Thanos, Galactus and Surtur. Don't look for logic, because when it comes to Politics there is none. You just follow their behavioral pattern and you can easily predict what they will do..
We can look it that way or we can simply see it as how it is written i.e. Superman is written as more powerful/stronger than Thor most of the times.
Quote:Do you truly and honestly believe that a blow by a Mystical weapon that can actually hurt Galactus in such a way, could be easily stopped by Sentry's psionics? By the hand of Superman w/o feeling any effect? And that he's vulnerable to Magic? All this is way beyond laughable, but yet here we are...
Yes. By that token, Superman has actually punched holes in the bodies of several universal beings and he should have killed Thor in one punch by that level of strength showings.
Quote:Remember: These people who run comics, they don't think the way the public think- they think POLITICALLY!! To then EVERYTHING is about politics!! That's why Jane Thor has Thor's hammer and his name as well.. Got it?!!!
Heh, you almost sound bitter. I wonder why.
