      LGDB: This is all either conjecture or bad evidence on your part. The strength feats you mention here, Thor never tries and fails. We don't get to see him attempt them so we can't say whether he can match or exceed them. The Kurse boulder idea I guess you've reached a pretty bizarre conclusion with. Kurse lifts a boulder, and also in some sense, appears stronger than Thor, so you conclude Thor can't lift the boulder? This is pretty ridiculous.

    Exactly. motifian only sees what he wants to see. Kurse lifts a boulder and that automatically means that's the limit of Kurse's strength? Huh? And we have seen a limit to Superman's strength in the DCEU movies. In MAN OF STEEL, Superman tries to hold up a collapsing oil rig tower, fails, and falls into the water barely conscious:


He didn't fail. The structure gives up. In Justice League, Superman has no problem picking up an entire building like nothing and moving it away.

And an oil rig is far heavier than a Boulder.


      As far as durability, none of your examples speak to the issue, and in the cinematic universe Thor basically hasn't been TKO'd yet so we haven't seen what his limits might be such that you'd know if Superman's exceeded his.

    Thor apparently has been knocked out, but it took the Grandmaster's device stunning Thor and Hulk's giant leap attack plus all the accumulated damage Thor had sustained up to that point in the Hulk fight. But again, an oil rig tower fell on Superman and basically knocked him out. Thor has withstood the direct attacks of an Infinity Stone wielder just fine. Thor was in the middle of the destruction of an entire city, Sokovia, and was just stunned. You know what it takes to destroy an entire city? A powerful nuclear bomb. Superman was all but dead from the nuclear explosion in BvS had he not drifted into the rays of the sun.

Thor was koed and it was implied that the stone ship falling on him would have killed him.

Thor didn't survive a city exploding bomb. The city imploded on itself via a chain reaction.

Never mind that Superman was still weakened from kryptonite while fighting Doomsday and taking a nuke.

In Avengers it was flat out stated that a nuke would've killed everyone in New York including Avengers.
