        And where is it shown because that's the same energy trail hitting J'onn as well.

        It's noticeably different. The energy trailing Mjolnir in issue #1 is identical to the one coming from Superman. Mjolnir is in his mid-section.



    Quote:
    No, it isn't. Thor has mjolnir in his hands twirling it in both situations when lightning hits J'onn and Superman.


No he doesn't. He is twirling it afterward, once the hammer returns.

        Quote:
        Here he says that Superman's near Flash level non-running speed compensates for Thor's greater skill and combat experience.

            And here he discusses the possibility of speed being used.

    Quote:
    So he doesn't ever say that Superman used speed off panel? Good to know.


He says that he uses speed and that it compensates for Thor's greater skill. Whether it is on panel or off is moot. He says it happens.

        No, he is quite above Thor. Already shown twice too.

        They only fight once and that shows a near even, hard fought battle that could have gone either way and both receive considerable damage off panel.

    Quote:
    That wasn't a near even fight. Near even fights don't end with one character catching other character's finishing move and saying "No bro, you don't measure up to me."


A fight where you are on the brink of destruction and are forced to reach deep and bring out more of yourself than ordinary to win in dramatic fashion is a close fight. Especially when the end result involves you being so damaged that you are helpless against opponents who would not be able to beat you that way ordinarily. Even Busiek's words support this.

By your logic, the first fight with Doomsday is not even close because Superman kills him with a single blow. And you can't give a good reason why Superman's bravado is to be taken literally but Thor's is not.
