Why Superman Beats Thor?

Embedded image permalink

Yes. Popularity, I'm sure, had a lot to do with Superman's win, for example, over Thor in the DC/Marvel crossover. I understand that entirely. Kurt Busiek, a known Superman fan, and someone who has outright confessed, he doesn't get Thor, was the one who over saw the JLA/Avengers crossover. I know for a fact that contributed largely, like Superman's mainstream popularity and notoriety as a a household name, to his win in the comic book. I think a lot of people get that.

That still doesn't mean he should've won in the fashion he did. Hell, I've even seen Superman fans, with regard to the crossover go, "Geez, I'm a Superman fan. I didn't expect Superman to just mop the floor with him".

And yes, in the main stream of things, is this an important subject? Nah. But, amongst comic geeks, what is personally important to discuss, is simply a matter of taste. To me, it makes more sense to bump an already existing thread to discuss an old tired subject (like this one), than to create a new one on the same subject. Stan Lee is gone. Jim Shooter is gone. Walt Simonson does not write Thor anymore. J Michael Stracynski doesn't write Thor anymore.

However, it has been an off on hobby of mine for years. And when the issue of who is the most this, that or the other among superheroes, and someone says, "Well, Thor's power is all in his hammer", or "There is no limit to Hulk's strength...", or whatever, I feel compelled to add something. What's wrong with that? People here may not feel strongly enough to voice their opinion, but maybe they are on who is the more skilled combatant, Captain America or Batman. So what? It's fun to talk about, its' fun to debate, and when political factors like popularity, or writer bias enters the discussion, it fuels the fire. Thor, along with others, is a favorite character of mine from child hood. As to why I am so strongly compelled to defend what I perceive as the truth (yes, I did say perceive), I don't know. I'll consult my shrink and get back to you on that one. In the mean time, I enjoy sharing my perspective on the subject and feel compelled to educate anyone who is blatantly misinformed. Perhaps, one day (or not), it will change how the character is written and return him to his glory years.

Another question, is why do people get bent out of shape over people who do want to discuss the subject civilly? Rarely have I seen on this site, people who just get out of control and start bashing others for their opinions. Most people around here seem to discuss a variety of subjects, including this one, rather reasonably. If I see a subject that does not interest me, I simply move on to the next. I don't go from thread to thread, and go, "Gee, why are you discussing that old tired subject?" My response is, "Why do you care? If people can discuss the subject civilly, what difference does it make?"
