Subj: the difference is frequency (or perceived frequency) and spread of showings

    therefore I would say that believing Thor is (or should be in a crossover) anywhere close to Superman is baloney.

    You can also look at it from the films: Do you really think that anybody who has never heard of Thor or Superman would give Thor any chance of winning against Superman? (well, maybe a very few people would but this has more to do with the nature of people than anything conveyed in the portrayals)

I don't really know what the polling on a Thor vs. Superman fight would be. Marvel top tiers perform planetary level strength feats. DC top tiers perform planetary level strength feats. Not really seeing the big difference.

It seems like DC characters have more frequent near planetary to above planetary feats. That said, I think a detailed analysis may prove otherwise. In the more space based titles, I think they've been a lot more common in the MU (the old stuff with classic Drax for instance, was full of big time feats, but even after he was explicitly powered up and given the power gem, he was even with Professor Hulk and Thor). Also, Superman through most of post crisis had 4 books running simultaneously, and a longer stint in the Justice League than any of Thor's runs in Avengers (I believe), so even though Post Crisis ran for a shorter duration than Thor's continuity, their overall number of showings may well be about equal, and could favor either...if they have a similar amount of feats per appearance, Superman's would certainly be more frequent.

Marvel characters DO have a tendency to fluctuate more than DC characters, and guys like Thor are treated more akin to Wonder Woman than Superman.
