    No one has argued about Superman being top, as he is the king of the herald levelers.

    However the point system, shows a near peer Captain Marvel being a fifth cheaper and Thor just over half the points, which I think is fair, 2 Thors probably could beat Superman.


Historically, the board as a whole puts Thor above Superman. Some years ago when Incriptus did his project to gauge how herald-levelers fared against one another, and got 41 responses, the results for these five averaged out to be:

Thor beats Superman 58.3% of the time.
Thor beats Hulk 61.8% of the time.
Thor beats Wonder Woman 75.2% of the time.
Thor beats Captain Marvel (Batson) 55.6% of the time.
Thor on average beats all herald-levelers 60.9% of the time.

Superman beats Hulk 64.2% of the time.
Superman beats Wonder Woman 71.8% of the time.
Superman beats Captain Marvel (Batson) 50.8% of the time.
Superman on average beats all herald-levelers 56.7% of the time.

When I engaged in a "Survivor" game a few years ago with a couple of dozen people on the board voting out the least powerful of the group remaining each day, Superman placed fourth. Thor came in first, Black Adam second, and Silver Surfer third.

So basically, in every survey I've seen in 15 years on this board, board consensus is that Thor > Superman regardless of Busiek's take.
