 The bottom line is that the writers and editors of that story decided that Superman would pull out the win. All the mental gymnastics in the world wouldn't change that story a lick. 

The points made, make it explicitly clear and establish that it was a close thing and Thor was about the toughest opponent Supes ever faced. Then consider that both companies' editorial agreed the outcomes. There's NO WAY DC would accept their main icon going down to Thor. Although roughly analogous in the context of their respective universes Supes is of MUCH greater value to DC than Thor is to Marvel. That's not over-analysis, it's just the way it is.
