    You see, I don't entirely disagree with this either. For whatever reasons, all parties agreed to the result and it was portrayed in the story. That is the simplest fact that one has to draw from that story as it pertains to battleboard discussions. In a fair fight where the stakes were highest - Superman won. The over analysis comes from taking quotes from the story dialogue to somehow invalidate or cast doubt on the result of the fight.

That you think I was trying to cast doubt on the result of the fight is a failure on your part to comprehend the point I was making. That point is that the outcome of one fight is not indicative of the outcome of all fights between two characters. Busiek is clearly trying to make the same point when he showed Thor's confidence in beating Superman in a rematch, by showing Superman being awed by Mjolnir's power, and by Superman stating that Thor was his toughest opponent ever.

Furthermore, I question how much you really do subscribe to the comic's author overriding any non-writer's opinion. For example, the Silver Surfer was once beaten by getting hit with a brick. Do you think the Silver Surfer's durability can be overcome by a brick?
