Quote:Three different, pro-Superman writers. If I were writing a conflict between fictional characters, of which I had an obvious bias towards one, and if I were allowed, then I too would write my favored character to be superior to the other. Additionally, your examples aren't as irrefutable as you like, because Superman has been punked by far less than Kalibak, Thor, etc. as well throughout his published history. Ergo, nothing you have posted thus far is irrefutable proof of Superman's superiority.
So all three are biased towards Superman despite Jurgens saying Thor will beat Superman?
Seems like a lot of excuses to me.
Quote:Now I do regard Superman as physically superior to Thor - perhaps not by the margin you do, but superior nonetheless. What I take umbrage to is your unequivocal declaration that Superman is simply superior to Thor. Thor is a physical being imbued with divine magic. In fact, much of his arsenal relies on that very magic. Superman had his clock cleaned by Captain Marvel, who stated that he was able to do so because of Superman's vulnerability to magic. Thor should be able to replicate said feat by virtue of who he is. In other words, Thor has a distinct advantage in at least one aspect, and his martial prowess should provide him with another. The writers you cite as your proof to the contrary don't seem overly interested in the big picture, and unless I'm mistaken, it seems neither do you.
Cap has never beaten Superman much less cleaned his clock. And if Thor beats Superman due to magic weakness, it'd be due to Superman's own vulnerability not due to Thor's powers.
