    You keep saying the evidence I brought up is to show Superman did not win the fight. That's stupid because I think Superman did win the fight. My evidence is simply to point out that Busiek himself is pointing out that the fight was extremely close and Thor could easily win in a rematch. That doesn't discount Superman's win. It just adds more information, information you want to ignore. However, when I point out that Surfer was waylaid by a brick, you don't want to ignore other information. I wonder why.

    Choosing Superman's victory as the prime evidence is different from ignoring Thor's boasting, just as I didn't ignore Aquaman's skepticism.

    You just proved my point. You ignore Thor's statement but accept Aquaman's.

Again no, I put Thor's boasting on the level of Aquaman's skepticism. Both anecdotes are below the fight.

    Gladiator has Superman's power set down to heat vision and super speed. Heck, we've seen Gladiator do things that post-Silver Age un-augmented Superman can't like destroying planets, moving planets, and being able to survive in stars. Yet Thor beat Gladiator when he said he would no longer hold back and Gladiator stated Thor was too strong for him. Why should evidence of Thor beating someone who has Superman's powers with even greater feats than Superman and no compunctions to hold back like Superman does be completely ignored? Why should Thor beating other Superman clones like Hyperion and Captain Marvel (Billy Batson) be ignored?

Wow, we're really down to this? Presenting Thor beating Supes clones as evidence? Really? Even when we saw Thor lose to the real deal? C'mon, man.

    Uh, your being fine with the story is not indicative of lack of emotional attachment because you've been arguing in support of the story the entire time. In any case, what you just said about me is completely wrong. I have never in this entire thread stated that Thor should be ranked #1. What I have objected to is that it's a completely settled case given BK Ray's reasoning that no one has objected to the ranking in this thread. To point out that fallacy, I mentioned the notable instances in which the board consensus contradicts his assertion that it's a settled matter. You really should reread his post and mine.

Yeah, no, it's actually very cool when the story supports your view so maybe I should say I have no negative emotional attachments. Why wouldn't BK think it goes without saying Supes should be #1? I would say that's fair based on JLA/Avengers.

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