    Also, I think I may understand kind of how you are deriving your opinion here. We have the JLA vs. Avengers fight that Supes won. We have Reed's statement (which you put weight on even though I don't). So maybe you think when you take everything together the publishers are trending towards Superman > Thor? (I don't want to put words in your mouth). Like I said from the beginning, that's your prerogative.

    But at the end of your original post, you said that this evidence puts Superman ahead of Thor by "quite a bit". Usually, when people read "quite a bit" they take it as meaning "by a lot".

    I already explained my viewpoint on Reed's statement in my post above. The best indication we have on these two characters is their actual fight. My question is, how can Superman be ahead of Thor by "quite a bit" if in their fight, Superman was exhausted at the end of it and said that Thor was one of the toughest opponents he ever faced.

    My take on the characters is this:
    Superman has a better powerset when it comes to an actual physical fight. He has hard durability that few can match, incredible flash-like fighting speed, and energy projection.

    Thor's godblast is one of, if not the most powerful attack for any hero in comics. It's taken down skyfather level characters. The godblast is tough to use in a fight. But regardless, his impressive array of EP and storm control, the teleportation allowed him by Mjolnir, the faster-than-light travel from Point A to B, and his more exotic powers may make him "more powerful", or at least more "diverse in his powers".

    Then add his fighting powers, his god-like healing, and his defensive capabilities via Mjolnir.

    All out, we don't have a more evenly matched fight in all of comics!!

See, Thor is more versatile than Superman. More versatile doesn't means more powerful though.

I respect you opinion but that's not matched by the comics however. That's all I got to say.
