Being helpless against them does not mean it took all of them. The whole scene was one of punishing him for beating Thor by adding insult to injury. Supes seemed done right after Tony’s blast. Fans criticized Busiek for what they viewed as writing the Avengers out of character and he cited them piling onto Nefaria.

Speaking of that, they do pile on Nefaria similarly and he tosses all of them off like they are nothing and this is under Busuek. So your argument that Superman is not weakened by Thor is an acknowledgement that Nefaria is far stronger than Superman. Busiek even shared the script of that scene and the script describes Superman as significantly weakened by his fight with Thor.

And I would be interested as to where Superman is shown up before Thor.


As you note, Superman is hit by Iron Man's blast - HE IS STILL STANDING.

Hercules, Iron Man, Vision and Wonder Man join the frey and I read that as desperation. If my friend Rob has just been ko'd by some guy in a club and Stuart punches him in the face and he still doesn't go down, until he is joined by myself and 3 other blokes, pretty sure it means it took all of us to knock him out. It is in fact an embarrassment that it took so many of them.

Whilst all this was happening and Thor was recuperating, Superman was taking additional punishment. Even they Superman took no longer than Thor to get up.

So Superman weathered all Thor could give, all that half a dozen Avengers could give. During that time Thor was recovering from Superman's attack.

If you want to use additional comics, then I would say Doomsday vs Superman, where he got killed was a tougher fight than Thor.

I know you don't want to hear it, but Thor is no match for Superman.
