When trying to come up with a hero or villain strong enough to take on Superman it’s actually pretty difficult. You have Black Bolt, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Hyperion, Sentry, Dr. Strange (possibly) and if you want to throw a curveball, Phoenix. Superman is pretty much unbeatable unless you’re using kryptonite. I’m not going to allow that though, no cheating just straight up power for power battle.

I looked through many characters and the one I came to conclusion that would give Superman the greatest battle is Thor!! In theory anyone could win one battle but how bout a series of battles, a best of ten type. Who would have the strength, courage, wits, grit to beat Superman over and over. That man is Thor, let me explain how..

To start with these guys are at the same level of strength, so no advantage either way in that department. Most people think Superman is stronger than Thor but Thor has done things in the comic books that even Superman hasn’t. For Example Thor used a mystical fishing pole to break the Midgard Serpent’s grip on Earth and lift its full weight off the planet and into space. The serpent itself has the exact same weight as the planet Earth which measures in at 6.6 sextillion tons!! So not only did he lift the Earth but the serpent as well, double the weight! No Hulk or Superman can boast that incredible feat. Even if you still don’t believe they’re equal in strength, remember Thor can trigger his Warrior’s Madness at times in battle that increases his strength by tenfold!

However, Superman does have the advantage in that he’s faster than Thor. Not that Thor is any slow moving slug, it’s just there’s only one person faster than Supes and that man is the Flash (clearly proved in comic book lore when they race). Thor is able to to travel at super speeds, throw Mjolnir faster than the speed of light and can swing it at twice the speed of light. Impressive!! He can see fast moving objects better than anyone other than the Flash, so the notion Superman could just fly or run at light speed or faster to hurt Thor doesn’t work for me.

Stamina in the fight would be advantage to Thor as well. The God of Thunder has no weaknesses, while Superman always has kryptonite as a weakness. While we can’t use that as a weapon as stated in the above article there is another weakness of Superman…. magic!! Many example of this but a great one is in Superman/Shazam: The return of Black Adam, we find that Supes is very vulnerable to magic. Thor has Mjolnir, ultimate weapon to use against Superman, which has strong ties to Dr. Stephen Strange. It’s magical power would crush Superman!!

Who wins in a battle you say?? Well Superman as powerful as he is doesn’t have any powers that Thor wouldn’t also. They really have a lot of powers alike. Thor isn’t susceptible to heat or cold so Superman’s heat vision or hurricane breath would have no effect on him. Thor can control the weather something that must not be underestimated. While this battle in theory could go either way I’m saying Thor wins! He doesn’t have any great weaknesses and he’s a GOD!!

The ultimate trump card in my opinion is Mjolnir. Made of the Asgardian metal Uru by Dwarven blacksmiths (Eitri to be specific) under commision of Loki, the inscription on the side translates to “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall posses the power of Thor”. Thor didn’t have this power given to him, it was earned. Mjolnir can manipulate time, control the weather, almost unlimited power given to it’s holder, absorb energy, track a person down. Not Vibranium (Captain America shield/Black Panther’s country Wakanda) nor Adamantium (Wolverine) can hurt Mjolnir. A near indestructible weapon wins this battle for Thor!

  1. Thor couldn’t be any of the supermen clones of his universe without his hammer. Give any of the a weapon or captain America shield he would lose.

  2. Then why Thor couldn’t beat Hella and had to bring Rangnork to fight her? If he can’t fight her without hammer then is he God Of Hammer?

  3. Actually Superman lifted a book with infinite pages so they are definitely not equal in strength (sure he had “help” to lift it but infinity divided by four still equals infinity”

  4. lol this article is so stupid, you literally no nothing about comics, Superman bench presses planets with purely strength for days and can move universes on a whim.

    There is nothing that any God can accomplish what Superman can do when he performs at 50% of his max power , everyone loves these Gods for some reason but if you read about then they are a bunch of selfish children who rape , wreak havoc and kill others out of petty jealously..

    Just the idea of Superman and what he represents , his morals and values, why he exists and the endless amounts of energy he can produce as he matured and ages in the comics, the fact that he learns to defeat magic and mind control, moves billions of times faster than light and , the new age Superman has crossed over out of living in any universal law. Where reality , where time, space don’t apply to him and he can best universal , multiverse and omniversal beings.. he becomes almost as powerful as the ✍️ who thinks of these stories to begin with.. almost able to control the narrative and mind and body of the writers.
