Subj: I still think BA would be the favorite in a fight with Thor, while I don't think Captain Marvel would be

...Thor won with 27 votes to Black Adam's 12.



No conventional comic writer would ever write this fight as involving super speed to any notable degree, so bringing that aspect into it isn't relevant. My own opinion is that Thor and Adam are physically close enough in strength and durability that what makes the difference in this fight are other factors - namely Adam's true flight and Thor's versatility - Mjolnir, energy projection, energy manipulation especially of a mystical bent, weather control, and vortexes. Thor's greater versatility carries this fight for him. Also, Thor has generally fared well against folks with power sets similar to Adam's: Hyperion, Gladiator, Captain Marvel (Billy Batson), and Count Nefaria.

and that a fight with Supes is a tossup.

In a rematch, I might go the other way, and in a best of 10, the advantage BA has in the first fight still leaves him statistically more probable for the 6/10.

Yes, BA can fight CM evenly...they're equals in every way.  I also think Superman is their equal physically.

BUT, BA is more likely to fight harder early, and that gives him the advantage over his typical peers.  Superman and CM may not fall for that because of their familiarity with him, however, but Thor would be at a disadvantage.

Likewise, I think Morg would be a favorite against Thor, CM, or Superman for similar reasons.

I also think that now that Surfer has figured Morg out, despite them being peers in overall power, Surfer wins a majority.  Surfer is the favorite against Morg, because Surfer is better with versatility of the PC and will use it.  Thor is favored over Surfer because he's skilled enough with his versatility to force Surfer to fight him in his strength.  Thor vs. Morg if Thor gets used to the ruthlessness and goes hard is an equal fight, because Morg and Thor's favored fighting styles match up, and they're peers in that regard (in other words, if Surfer fought that kind of fight vs. Morg, I think he'd be the underdog).
