Thor's similarity to Superman is that he has a red cape, his father exiled him to earth, and he fell for a mortal woman. Other than that... \(\?\) \:\?

Further dwelling on the impact of Superman it occurred to me that since the end of the 1940s he has always had at least four regular books in his stable. From the end of the 40s up to the end of the sixties he powered Action Comics, Superman, Superboy, Worlds Finest, Jimmy Olsen (1954), and Lois Lane (1958).
The 1970s added DC Comics Presents to the list. By the mid 80s he was reduced temporarily to three - Adventures of Superman, Superman, and Action Comics. Gradually rising to four again with the arrival of Man of Steel in 1991 and latterly the new Superboy, then Man of Tomorrow... later Superman/Batman arrives followed by Supergirl...

That he can sustain an average of four books since his formative years tells much about his impact and success.

Think that where Thor and superman are the "same" is that both of them occupied the top spot among heros, were the most powerful ones, so basically were the go to guys when big time baddies showed up to fight!
