    ...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.

That's not how it went if you want to go through interview again.

    RC: What do you think of the idea of Superman defeating Thor, which we recently saw in JLA/Avengers?

    Superman vs. Thor
    DAN JURGENS: No . . . not even possible. Even if you bring back Thor to his basic self, the Thor of issue one of my run, he would beat Superman.

    RC: Why�s that?

    DAN JURGENS: Magic.

    RC: The "magic weakness" idea for Superman?


    RC: In the books these days, the "magic weakness" is almost never there.

    DAN JURGENS: I know. I know. Straight up? Superman is more powerful, but because of the magic weakness . . . but because of the magic component, Thor wins.

    RC: In your opinion, is Superman is a lot more powerful than Thor?

    DAN JURGENS: Yeah.

Dan himself said that Superman is straight up more powerful than Thor and not out of some mysterious pity on a Superman fan. The said fan didn't say that Superman is stronger too.

The Superman/FF comic is from 1999 and the interview was in 2004 BTW.

    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.

Heh, seems like a wrong move to bring a hero in when he couldn't deal with what was going on.

And Access didn't bring Superman to shock the teams.

You know that he also agreed that Superman was a million times more powerful than Thor and later said on the Thor board that he was joking. If you go to the interview, RC edits and links to where Jurgens corrected his statement on the Thor board, though apparently the link no longer works.
