Quote:With respect, this is pretty lazy analysis. Venom beat Superman too...
Quote:And Cap beat up hulk. Outliers happen all the time.
Quote:Not to mention all sorts of characters can be the most powerful in a given story. Just how it is.
Quote:Not when the other character is straight up mentioned in the story. And the writer has himself stated that Superman is more powerful than Thor.
When has Jurgens stated this other than the one interview where he later says that he was joking?
Quote:Remind us the times Thor has been stated as most powerful being on two earths?
Of course Reed doesn't say that. He says "perhaps". You can't disregard that caveat. Superman is the co-star of the book and therefore is being pumped up. Nowhere in the crossover with Silver Surfer is there any implication of him being above Surfer. If anything the opposite since he is impressed by what Surfer does. If we extrapolate from that as you do, then that would seem to put Surfer above Superman.
Quote:JLA/Avengers probably got close to being right with the two having a slug out. Superman barely outlasts Thor in a straight fight, but one could argue Thor did not use many other powers either.
Quote:Thats not what happened. Superman didnt win a war of attrition. He straight up defeated Thor and was winded. Thats it.
He barely defeats Thor (he confirms this himself) and is significantly weakened in the process. Saying that he is merely "winded" is not being honest.
Quote:I see no reason based on both continuities that either are much stronger or weaker than the other. Particularly when all of their pasts are taking together. Or at least what is considered cannon for Superman.
Quote:Except no? Superman is much stronger than Thor umder most portrayls these days.
