Quote:A result that requires him to fight the fight of his life and be left in a weakened state to achieve.
A fight for his life is against Doomsday. But if you are going by statements, I take Superman is the strongest being in nine realms as stated by Thor? Or does it apply for Superman only?
And he wasn't weakened anywhere.
The "fight of his life" is not the same as "fight for your life". Thor isn't trying to kill him. And don't turn it around. You make this thread based on a literal interpretation of character statements. So you can't pick and chose according to your own bias. And of course, Thor does not state that Superman is the strongest in the nine realms.
You get around the fact that if we use the standards that you are using in this thread, Thor is the toughest opponent Superman has ever fought. You can't declare that to be a statement not to be taken literally while taking Reed's statement literally and ignoring his inclusion of the word "perhaps".
