    Allow me to preempt all the naysayers by saying it was actually a Thor/Ironman combo attack. Ironman capped the other end so the "atomic action" from Thor's hammer strike would double back on itself. As Thor was at ground zero when the city was incinerated, and seemed no worse for wear from said detonation, I actually think it was a more favorable showing than when Superman was hit by the nuke in Batman vs Superman. That explosion appeared to have Superman on death's door, until the sun healed him anew.

    Obviously interpretation is subjective, as the magnitude of both events were never specifically quantified, but I think the visual evidence suggests that both events were more comparable than incomparable.


Yep. Iron Man's heat seal basically contains Thor's strike so that all the force involved would vaporize the city instead of continually expanding outward, which would have left big chunks of the city coming down. That level of destruction was massive. Thor's strike though was not unprecedented. Thor also destroyed a huge section of Jotunheim in his first movie.



For comparison, Superman couldn't hold up one tower of an oil rig in Man of Steel and then was knocked out by it:

So if anything, high-end Marvel cinematic feats surpass DC cinematic feats. The amount of damage the characters take and deliver in the Hulk-Iron Man fight is as significant as that in the Superman-Zod fight.
