    then its lower...and which Superman movies are we talking about...very different portrayals from the Chris Reeve version to the more recent.

I am talking about the latest films, the full blown CGI era. The Superman in MOS and Superman vs. Batman was powers of magnitude beyond the Marvel heroes, ie Thor

    All in all, if we're talking the in comic Thor vs. Post Crisis Superman, on the whole I think you can say its comparable....if you look at it from pre DOS only, I think Thor comes out quite a bit ahead, and probably a bit ahead pre early 2000's.

    Current Superman, I honestly don't know.

    Pre Crisis Superman probably comes out ahead by a fair margin, with more frequent planetary to solar system feats, with Thor and his peers having only a few feats greater than planetary level in the Silver Age, but even SA Superman had his less impressive showings. Comic book Thor is generally superior to Golden Age Superman as well.

Well that is true but they were more than 20 years apart in time

    Start mixing in movies, again, fairly debatable...we saw in Avengers Thor go toe to toe with the Hulk, and some pretty impressive stuff in the final battle, but I honestly need to re review the movies to do a fair comparison...though the Chris Reeve Superman was likely more powerful than either of the more recent versions....

The problem with this argument is that MOS would have made mince-meat out of Avenger Hulk in less than a minute. This is why I have said multiple times the cross over comparison logic does not work since it depowers Superman to make Thor look good.

I'm not seeing this grand disparity in physical strength you are alluding to. In the Avengers film, the Hulk stopped the advance of a creature (one-handed for much of it) with sufficient mass to fly through buildings and cause their collapse. Meanwhile, Superman failed to so much slow the descent of the locomotive tossed at him in MOS.

Also, the 30mm rounds fired from the A-10s seemed to at least hurt the Kryptonians, with an air to surface missile actually knocking Faora out cold. Conversely, the Hulk seemed no more than annoyed by the 25mm rounds from the F-35 escort fighter, and never lost consciousness from the midair explosion of said plane.

One might argue that at least some of the characters between the two cinematic universes are closer in power than you would have us believe.
