    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.

Whenever did I say that Superman will win every time? I'm saying Supes will more thank likely win in a fight as depicted in that comic.  I was also agreeing with BK Ray that the published comic with an established result trumps fan opinion. As simple as that. Supes was awed by Mjolnir, fine. But Supes also beat Thor with Mjolnir and even stopping a full swing with one hand before knocking Thor out. You say 
Thor was confident he'll win next time. Whatever, I'll buy that if they actually show it in a story. Again, the result of the fight trumps the anecdotes you point out, at least to me they do. 

    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?

Not if the same writer has the character surviving supernova, flying into suns etc. There is a modicum of reason that I choose to believe the majority of the showings far outweigh that outlier showing. What I saw in JLA/Avengers was Superman eventually overcoming Thor is a fair fight. Why reason would I believe a non-writer's opinion overruling that? Besides, it's not just one writer's decision, it is backed by the editorial staff and no doubt was cleared by both parties. I do agree with Vidar that DC probably wouldn't have agreed to have Supes lose but the fact of the matter is that Marvel agreed that he wouldn't. That said, I just don't see evidence in that story that would say Superman doesn't deserve to be the #1 powerhouse choice in the OP's post, sorry.

Tom, who's more powerful: Galactus or a Celestial? I'd put my money on Galactus over any single Celestial.
