Except in practice superman is leagues above Thor in their shared powers and their eclectic powers are about even these days

Then you should argue that Superman is leagues above Hulk in strength.

Also, regarding Thanos: Thanos has admitted to avoiding coming into conflict with Hulk and Starlin recently said that Thanos would be wary of the Hulk.

Superman is the favorite over either, but it wouldn't be an easy fight for him.  In theory, Thor should be the tougher battle since he has greater diversity and range.

Typically, he is.

That did not stop Starlin from writing a scene in which he bitchslapped Hulk alongside Drax.

Every character is entitled to at least one writer that wanks him until he's sore. Starlin would(did) have thanks beat everyone in the universe minus god

Sure.

doesn't stop that showing from being practically [/i]nothing[/i] compared to what Superman has done for relative strength, including pre- flashpoint.

Nor a scene where Thanos slams Hulk and Thing's heads together Three Stooges style (save for Quasar's save).

Byrne Superman has done much more impressive.

Didn't Pre-Crisis Superboy get wrapped up in a chain link fence and couldn't escape?

Yep.

Byrne's explanation for it was the dynamic factor.

That's worse than Hulk and the snake. What the hell are these writers thinking sometimes?

On paper, Thor has a better chance of winning, but in an actual comicbook, Hulk is 100 times more likely to put Superman down than Thor is.

You seriously think the Hulk has ANY chance of punching out Superman cleanly in a comic? Not a fan-made comic, but a proper one, signed off on by both Marvel and DC?

I think he has no chance of doing that. So at worst, Thor's chances are equal to his (i.e. zero as well). But I actually don't think Thor's chances of winning are zero, because there's precedent for Superman struggling against opponents powered by magic, even in crossovers.

Thanks for conceding that Superman must be weakened for the small godling to have a chance against him Shuruku.

Starlin is, if I remember rightly, on record as saying he hates the concept of an intelligent Hulk. He has mad respect for the savage/childlike Hulk though. Or at least he used to... he gave that Hulk one of his best dynamic strength showings ever back in 1987. I guess we will find out in December how far his love for that incarnation goes.


Cheers.

Thanks for confirming that you lack the mental chops to comprehend what my actual point was.
