To be fair, i have yet to see anyone even try to say that Superman didn t won those two fights that he did. He has beaten them in a specific occasion (and failed to do so in a couple of others where the fight stopped before it was decided), no one is arguing against that.
What people ARE arguing about here, is the leap of logic from this to it being a one sided road that proves inherent superiority in a general sense. If taking a single fight is meant to be a proper way to compare characters, anyone could make up an argument for their own favourite as long as they restrict the data to exactly the ones that dont disprove them. I could prove that a random character could ko superman easily most of the times by that same logic, if i ignore the times it didn t happen or just tweak a story to mean more than it did, even getting wrong a lot of aspects of it willingly. My point was that there is a wider context and varied levels of potential that a character can bring to bear in different situations well within their character concept, and the result must keep in consideration all prospectives, plot effects and similar that could be part of a comic book story on both sides.
I think a comparison between characters should consider all aspects of a character and reconcile both the high and the lows, and consider the narrative role and plot influence on said fight without adding our own bias if possible. It doesn t matter if they are marvel or dc, if you guys had been talking about only dc characters, the logic would still have been flawed
No one disagrees that Superman beat Thor in JLA/Avengers. No one disagrees that Superman could beat Thor should they meet again. Certain Thor fans aside, most people probably don't mind anyone feeling that Superman would take a majority from Thor even if they personally disagree. But, yeah, this idea that it is so self-evident that Superman is so above Thor that it should not even be a contest and the idea that anyone disagreeing with that is just showing Marvel bias? No. Sorry.
Neither am I going to shed tears for poor abhijit. I definitely detect some truth-stretching and DC bias at work in certain posts by certain posters.
