Does Superman always win? Superman VS Thor
DC's Man Of Steel or Marvel's God Of Thunder?
Here is a link to the previous battle between Superman & Silver Surfer.
Superman has been said to be the strongest superhero in all comics. But is that true? Can the Man Of Steel be taken down? Or is it true The Man Of Steel is without match. I believe there are beings who can take him down, so let's put it to the test, shall we? Find out on these weekly segments who can challenge The Man Of Steel.
As you can see, this weeks matchup, and very first segment is between Superman, and Thor. This battle will take place on neutral ground, and be a random encounter, so no intended advantages here! Morals off. No prep will be included, and they will have standard equipment. So Thor will have have Mjolnir for this battle. Currently I don't believe Thor uses the belt of strength anymore, because i don't see him with it. Superman will be allowed Pre-Flashpoint & New 52 feats. Thor is allowed Classic & Current feats. Despite the picture Thor does not have the Odin Force. Enough of this talk we want to see who wins don't you?
I will split this into categories, and than have a verdict at the end. Categories will be speed, strength, durability, intelligence, ect.
This is a category that always gets used when trying to find out which one of these two win. They are both incredibly strong, and one of the physically strongest heroes from there respective universes. Superman was shown to move 1/3 of the planet along side Martian Manhunter & Wonder Woman. Destroy moons,lifted a book with Captain Marvel that weighed infinite, and planetoids. Superman has currently held the weight of the planet for 5 days with barely any struggle. I don't know how to take of that, because he was later shown in other comics in his series that he has struggled with a lot less. Thor has shown the strength to move an island casually, lift the Odinsword, struck down the Phoenix Force, and put holes in Celestials. Although it seems Thor is out classed. Not by a lot, but still outclassed. I would say that Superman will obviously have more lifting feats because Thor is casually shown to have Mjolnir in his hand, and well how do you lift stuff with a hammer in your hand? Although I would give the strength advantage to Superman he just has better feats. Although...Thor has better striking force than the man of steel. You have to take into consideration that Thor has a magical hammer that was used by Odin in the olden days, and was made from a star. Something a lot of people don't know is that Thor is not only the god of thunder, and lightning, but he is also the Norse god of strength too. Keep that in mind. Thor has struck down Cosmic beings, and Skyfather level beings with it's strikes. So I believe although Superman has more raw phyiscal strength, Thor has the better striking power. ( To clear things up, I meant striking power with Mjolnir not Thor's actual fists. Sorry for the confusion. )
Thor:Thou seems to have match me in strength
Superman:Seems we are equal..for now
This is a factor that will be a big thing in this match. Can they take what they dish out? Let's see. Superman has been shown to hold black holes in his hand, have to planets crash into him, survived a supernova, and even tanked many hits from Doomsday. Who I might add was wrecking the other Justice League members in 1-2 hits. Yes, Superman's durability is good, but so is Thor's. Thor has tanked a point blank planet explosions, supernova's, the weight of planets on him, and tanked blasts from Celestials. Although they have been taken down from far less, so these showings don't hold much value. I don't know about you, but this one is extremely close. Maybe even more than the strength category. I will leave this at a draw since they seem fairly even.
Hmm...this one is quite obvious, but let's go on shall we? Let's start with Thor this time. Thor has microseconds reaction speed, shown to have FTL travel speed in space, and can swing Mjolnir twice the speed of light. Now for Superman. His speed feats over shadows Thor's by a large margin. I mean the guy has the speed to stalemate Flash for a while on earth. ( I know he let him win, and tied him, but it's still a feat, and I doubt Thor could do it ) Reacted at nanosecond speed, and has flown from earth to far reach planets in minutes. There are 3 types of speed to consider. Flying speed, ground speed (speed on earth), and reaction speed. Thor also has to spin his hammer to fly, and take off. I believe Superman has Thor beat in every single one. Yeah, this one is obvious. Superman beats Thor in this category by a large margin, and it will be a huge factor in the overall fight.
Bet you can't do this Thunder God
This category is going to show which character brings more to the battle. They both have lots of powers, but only ones that are actually combat usable will probably get used. Superman has powers like heat vision, frost breath, super breath, X ray vision, phasing, healing, super hearing, super ventriloquism microscopic vision, absorption, and invulnerability. These would probably make you sway to Superman's side already without hearing Thor's wouldn't it? But Thor also has a lot of powers combat usable. Like super hearing, weather control, control over the earth, teleportation, absorption & redirection, energy projection, transmution, invulnerability, amping, godblast, anti-blast, magic, ocean control. It seems that Thor not only has more powers, but his are more useful. I would say that in this fight Thor's powers would do more than Superman's. I would give this one too Thor.
This is a category where Thor finally gets to show off what he's got. The rest of the categories were in Superman's favor, or stalemates. Thor has a lot of power at his disposal, because his dad is Odin king of the Skyfather's, and arguably the strongest Skyfather in Marvel. His mom is Gaea the mother Elder Goddess, and goddess of the earth. So it would make sense if he was really powerful wouldn't it? Well he is. Thor has been shown to summon winds from 1000 worlds to hurt beings as powerful as Odin, made storms that have raged from Asgard to earth, and were ripping everything up, can control the earth partially (Doesn't really know how to use this power) thanks to his mother, anti-blast as powerful as a star, and a godblast that is his own life force into an attack that devastates most thing it hits. Like Exitar's dome, Galactus, Durok, and even managed to push the unmovable classic Juggernaut back. Superman is no slouch though. He has frost breath colder than the arctic, heat vision hotter than the sun, and capable of range as big as the planet. Not to forget Superman can move so fast he can phase throw solid objects like Doomsday's punches for example. Although I said Superman is no slouch, he is still beat in this category by a margin almost as big as the speed category.
Thy is a puny mortal, and puny mortals shall fall to the Odinson
This one is actually an interesting category. I know who everybody thinks is going to get this category Your all probably like "Superman got this in the bag" or "really? This is a no contest". Well guess what your wrong. Yes Superman maybe more book smart, or have a higher IQ. It is shown that Superman can use his super speed plus large brain capacity to read all the hospital books to do a procedure on a women he only could do. He did this all in a couple of minutes, while it takes humans years to this. Superman is more smarter in those areas, but when it comes to a fight in combat Thor is more better. Yes Thor does love to charge into battle Mjolnir first due to how Asgardians are, and his constant thought that no one can match him. (Which they can, and have) Thor has been shown to be quite smart in fights. Like when he realizes he might not win wit brute force alone he goes to other tactics. Thor has done stuff like send opponents away, drain there energy, used weather attacks for advantage, showed people alternate futures so they wouldn't kill civilians upon realizing what they are doing. Thor has thousands of years of combat skill, and battles. He has led the Asgardians into battles much times, and even the Avengers. He led the Secret Avengers against the Phoenix Force too. Heck when Thor first came to earth he learned the English language in 1 week, and would have been faster, but he had trouble with nouns, and such. I'm not saying Thor takes this, but that it's closer than more would say,
Thy think Thor fights Frost Giants, and Trolls all thy time?! I say they NAY !
As much as it pains me to say. I'm sorry my fellow Thor fans, and you''ll be happy Superman fans. Superman wins. I would say he takes 6/10 battles. Close, but Thor didn't have as much luck as the Silver Surfer. Yes Thor has the strength to go rounds with Superman. Yes he has the durability to take hits from Superman, and yes he has the overwhelming power to hurt Superman. But there is one thing Thor lacks a lot of...and that is speed. Yes Thor has reacted to Silver Surfer, and such. But it does not mean Surfer was going as fast as he could, or was trying too. For every one blow Thor lands the Silver Surfer will land about 10+. We have seem what Superman can do with his speed, and knowledge on pressure points on Ultraman. He used his speed to hit every pressure point in Ultraman's body. Even if this doesn't work, Superman can just punch Thor with his insanley powerful strength at high speeds, coupled with heat vision that can probably harm Thor a little. Thor can win if gets off his more powerful attacks, or gets in some of those hard striking Mjolnir hits. Not to mention Superman has a weakness to magic.
So the first segment of "Does Superman always win" is over, and the winner is Surfer. Stay tuned in for next week, I hope you enjoyed this.
